Okay that works. Here is intel. I need a 7 or less.
241 12/6/2017 10:28:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Well, I'm playing the card as an event so there is no limit on Battle hexes, just have Indomitable attack the air unit at Medan and declare anther battle hex. Then he's there legally and your still OOS.

Does that work?
240 12/6/2017 9:30:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Bill, I don't think you can move the Indomitable to that hex legally. See 8.21 on the restrictions where a naval unit may end it's move.

That said, I agree that if the Indomitable were there legally, all of my CBI units would be OOS because I can't trace by sea from S HQ to Rangoon.
239 12/6/2017 11:19:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message woops - will take a look tonight.

Columbo: Indomitable to 1711

Dacca: SEAC AF attacks Akyab (battle A)

Dacca: 3 AUS to Akyab

Calcutta: 33 and 15 Armies to Akyab

If I did that right, you're entire CBI theater is OOS because Rangoon is not a supply eligable port as long as Indomitable's AZOI cuts it off from another port and hex 2011 is impassible by sea.

Let me know what you think.

235 12/5/2017 12:02:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Update:
I just realized that I wanted to make a slight change to my PBM. JP Fleet command is smelling blood in the water.

switching CA Takao (goes to 4612 (Wake)) and CA Nachi (goes to 4110 (Marcus))

BB Yamato stays in 4107 (Truk) post battle

Updated logfile dropped.
234 12/5/2017 11:51:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message The only PBM for the Allies is M, so I'll go ahead and put it back in Espiritu Santo. Let me know if you want to change it.

JP PBM:

CA Nachi : 4017 (Truk) -> 4612 (Wake) *

BB Yamato : 4017 (Truk) -> 3615 (Ulithi) *

I'll pause here to let you look things over (and make necessary personnel changes at HQ...). If everything looks good, I'll move next.

Battle B: Rabaul

AP (top die): 12,0
JP: 45,0
231 12/5/2017 11:38:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Ouch. I think there will be a Service Investigation into the Truk expedition...

AP: 1 = .25x = 7 which isn't enough even to flip the old Kamikaze
JP: 7 = 1x = 69 which is more than the 48 needed to flip and destroy both the Lexington and the BB Miss...

Since the A/N battle is won by the JP, the M Bde is turned back (must conduct PBM).

No ground battle occurs.

OC: 5 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
Playing for the event. Iím banking the two air replacements for now, if you could implement that? There is also the marker for the turn track. And over to you again.
181 11/16/2017 12:47:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message That hurts.

No return fire.

Move the China marker one box to the right toward the Stable Front box, unless this would put the China marker in the Stable Front box, in which case no effect. Remove from play if used as an event.

174 11/16/2017 10:04:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message Okay, finally.

For PBM, I just want to put everybody back:

5AD back to Aparri (2911)
CV Junyio back to Soerabaja

Could you implement these moves for me as you make your next move? (Also, did you put the LRB in Port Moresby?)

Message from Allies:
Ok, no need to roll for intel since I don't intend to react and you can't kill the last step of ground.

So this is the Ground battle.

No die for the Allies as even a 2X won't hurt you.

You die = 18 at net +2 drm (+2 for air, +2 for naval, -2 for Mixed). Anything but a 0 vaporizes the Brits.

(Little bit of confusion in the log until I figured it out. Wanted to grab Burma but couldn't make it work...)


5AD : 2911 (Aparri) -> 2216 (Sinkawang) * Battle A - Singapore
CV Junyo : 2220 (Soerabaja) -> 2015 (Singapore) * Battle A
38th Army : 2014 (Kuantan) -> 2015 (Singapore) * Battle A

17th Army (reduced) : 1916 (Palembang) -> 2007 * 1 ASP

Logfile dropped. Over to you for R&R
170 11/15/2017 4:27:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message = .5 = 5 hits, which flips neither air unit.

So overall no effect. Over to you for PBM.

I am not going to be able to move again until tomorrow, so I am going go ahead and move - it will be in the CBI, so it won't affect your potential PBM, and I suspect you might not actually move at all as part of your PBM. Hope this is okay.

Message from Japanese:
2+3=5 = 0.5 = 7, which is not enough to flip the CV.

So, the carrier gets to hit back:
