After the fall of Tokyo in november and Japanese apologies for leaving some still ships afloat at Pearl Harbor back in XII.1941 another war started almost immediately. This time obc_a from PW ver 3.2 is being used.

In the beginning stunned world saw (as usually :D ) dreadful attack on Pearl Harbor. Two battleships have been sunk, many damaged. Not a perfect starting for Emperor deVada but good enough not to execute Nagumo at once.

Then Imperial forces begun their run for control.
Just a month since war starting - Singapore, Port Moresby, Johnston Island and Akyab was under Japanese control. Then Imperial forces took the rest of south Pacific (ex. Fiji & Palmyra & Midway & Wake), besieged Rockhampton and Calcutta and took everything but Baatan & Clark Field in Philipines.

Allied counteractions started very early, first in India, where joint US & CW carrier forces prevented the early collapse of Ceylon & Calcutta, then they have been moved to South Pacific and Australian theatre just to efficiently support the defenders.

After severe set back at Hawaii, where famous Japanese 48th Division went down with all hands boarding a completely wiped task force, which was to be covered by assholic Yamaguchi with all available carriers and the stupid admiral went quite different way and he wasn't able to protect his ships (Hiryu was lost after a sigle hit (as usually :D)) Japanese offensive stuck.

In mid and late 1942 the frontline estabilished and frozen on Calcutta/Brisbane/ New Caledonia/Johnston line. Strong british battlefleet plus numerous bomber squadrons there prevented Japs to go forward in India, and strong allied surface & carrier forces prevented the fall of Australia, where few Japanese divisions stopped in Rockhampton.
The mighty Empire went completely out of fighters in mid 1942, so enemy took control of skies virtually anywhere.

Just a next Allied step was to begin a half scale offensive in Solomons & Australia at september and october of 1942. Allied forces landed at Townsville, Milne Bay, Tagula, Green Island, Buka Island, Guadalcanal, Noumea, Efate, Tarawa, Eniwetok and Ponape. Only Townsville held.
In response - Imperial fleet joined 17th army efforts to protect Rabaul and the area. Gods of war allowed to capture few thousands on roundeyes in Townsville and regain control of heavily defended Buka Island (Gen. Geiger is in a POW camp now).
Then - in a series of great naval clashes off the coast of Green Island allied joint Pacific fleet has been decisively defeated. Four allied battleships went down, one carrier as well. The rest of allied fleet fleed to dry docks with water lapping over the decks. As for january 1943 only two allied carriers and three - four battleships are quasi-operational. Japanese Imperial Navy has lost two carriers and Yamato & Ise battleships in those battles. All Japanese dry docks are full as well.
God bless "long lances" ! :cool:
Without the support of naval forces, three isolated brigades and an engineering battalion surrendered to the empire on Green Island. Allied troops were pushed back from New Caledonia as well.

Now, in the middle of january of 1943 the situation is unclear.
Allies have no ships, Japanese have no planes. Brits have captured Ambon Island and their Wellingtons are massacrying japanese transports regularly.
We will see what gods of war will bring to us ...

Who has control of Clark Airfield? Very important in determining the fate of PI...

The final phase of war has just begun.
After Japanese defences breakdown in Solomons, enemy is quickly pushing forward using his material and technical superiority.

Imperial airmen and sailors do their best to stop enemy, but with no available troop transports and risky carrier cover, all ovensive operations have been stopped. Only the process of shortening the defense lines by withdrawing from India and Australia has helped a bit, but now after the fall of Bangkok even defense of Singapore and Malaya generally looks bad.

Anyway, with numerous groups on Special Attack mission we still can win the war. Yamaguchi has 5 big (Taiho just arrived) carriers, Tanaka still rolls with several battleships so defense of Japan will be bloody for the enemy.

Japanese design bureau has also developed a Supernell torpedo bomber basing on captured B24 Liberator, so at least long range kamikaze attacks are able to sink a freighter from time to time.
Japan is full of aircraft now, mostly Ki-61, Toryus and J2M Raidens but enemy night attacks from Marcus Island and Takao have begun to became more and more intense.

Emperor urges all available personel to do his best in such difficult times.
BANZAI !!

Interesting situation - I 've never seen PI and Formosa in Allied hands while Marianas and Iwo are still in Japan's.

yeeep .. it looks quite weird ...
All the mess is caused by Gen. Mutaguchi incompetence.
That man was unable to take control of Clark Field, even with 6 full sized and fully ready divisions. Actually, he didn't make it even to attack enemy.

****ty japanese planes were also unable to isolate those bases, and when Japanse defense in Solomons suddenly crashed nothing could stop allies on total offensive.

Yamaguchi and Tanaka are in Japan, airfields and land bases are full of squadrons and divisions, so at least Japan wouldn't fall quickly. I hope so ...

See the Japanese carrier force.

Okay, even with the Japanese kill point multiplier, that has GOT to be a game glitch. Maybe even two glitches: Japanese production should not be that high, especially with the "*" signifying a shortage of oil.

Kamikaze attacks are being intensified.
Two modern US battleships hit badly south of Saigon headed for Takao.
Several troop transports and cargo ships sunk in all theatres.
American divisions took Truk in second wave, precedeed by severe bombardment, covered by Halsey. Imperial divisions counterattacked in next week, retaking the base and capturing numerous squadrons of P47 Thunderbolts. Anyway 3rd Marine Division is still present there and supply level is very low.
Okinawa has fallen. Enemy is at the gates of Japan. All available means of war are deployed in Japan.
Due to fall of many important bases on convoy routes, enemy submarine commanders won't beat U-Bootwaffe records as routine convoys stopped. Situation is serious.
IJNS Taiho has joined Yamaguchi's strike group, and now he is waiting for an occasion for a final decisive battle.
In Australia - Japanese troops have been withdrawn to Darwin, and stubborn defence in Solomons is still active.
Over 50 squadrons are on SA mission, so allies must plan their actions very carefully.
Bankgkok has fallen, Imperial divisions are moving to south China area thereby shortening the defence lines. 6th Army divisions joined the defense positions of CEA.
Tanaka with his battlegroup is also waiting for enemy in Japan.

Last time, enemy flak fire did miraculously good. Even a simple transport task force is able to defend itself only with AA fire.

Type XXI U-Boats already started the operation of evacuation national archives and military wunderwaffe projects to Argentina, althrough Emperor remains in his HQ aboard Taiho, commanding the carrier force personally. No allied soldier will lay his foot on Sacrificied Japanese soil !!

More reports to follow.

If the routine convoys have stopped, that means the national oil reserve is going down. If it stays below 4000 for more than a few weeks, you should see falls in production levels of everything, planes, artillery, and shipyard points. And there's also the vital kill point multiplier. (Come to thaink of it, what are the actual point totals at the moment?)

Captain, this is Roosevelt, surfacing under a new identity after some troubles with password.

It is now March of 1944, and the allies have successfully landed in Tokashima. The score is 87000 for the Japanese, and 170,000 for the Allies.

The best Japanese Divisions have been bypassed and left to wither in Bouganville, Rabaul, Truk, Saipan and Singapore. The defenders around Phillipines, Taiwan (Formaosa) and on the Japanese homeland appear to be second rate, low experience units.

It illustrates a basic dilemna for the Japanese player.....pull back units to defend the homeland or try to defend out of bomber range? Not an easy decision.

B29 production will kick in next week, but too late to have any influence on the outcome.

Since the demise of the Japanese superfighters just six game months ago (late 1943), the losses in air to air combat have slowly swung from almost two to one in favour of the Japanese, to better than 4 to 1 in favour of the allies. Presumably this is because most allied air units are now around of 90% experience, and the Japanese pilot expereince must be very low. Just a few Hein Squadrons are giving a good account of themselves. During the last two weeks of attacks on the Japanese homeland, the Japanese have lost more than 1500 aircraft each week, surely a new record,and totally unsustainable.
Once again Captain, thankyou !

Althrough some defetistical elements in Japanese High Command are suggesting a [surrender] Emperor has decided to wage the war further until the last Imperial flag waves.
Last two weeks shown, that enemy got no problems with badly equipped and poorly trained and not so numerous Imperial divisions in homeland, so every base west of Nagoya is now under enemy rule.
After a fierce aerial / carrier battles three weeks ago (all battles were held on 16th of march - just as a birthday gift for the emperor) enemy suffered dramatical looses.
At least 5 escort carriers were sunk, numerous big and several light carriers were flamed as well, both by land based divine winds and Yamaguchi's carriers raid south of Tokyo. So far Yamaguchi has 3 flattops, Zuikaku, Taiho and Akagi (the last one isn't even scrathed). He is operating in central Japan now, covering the strategical withdrawal of Imperial forces.
Admiral Tanaka has succesfully bombarded enemy outposts at Osaka, killing numerous soldiers, many planes, guns and tanks. Then he withdraw unattacked by naval forces seeing the fear in eyes of admiral Merril stationed there. He has several battleships and all cruisiers left, so he won't sell his skin cheaply.

RCS is stopped, so fuel problems are gone. The reserve is at 4500 barrels constantly. Emperor is doing his best to avoid temptation of using "secret fuel reserves", but it won't help anyway.
Fighter pools are OK as well, but some problems have occured with bombers. Experience level among the pilots is averagely 50. There is even no place to put new squadrons to, so many of them were disbanded.

New counteroffensive will push allies back to the sea soon ... !!
BANZAI !!

Stopping the Routine Convoy System helped you with your oil reserve?? Hmm...perhaps you were still getting some from Aomori and Sapporo.
