288 12/21/2018 1:07:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Sadly for me, you are absolutely correct. The CH would sink the Indomitable, changing the whole complexion of the ground combat result to your favor.

Rangoon would fall to you and Warspite (who was active) will PBM to Colombo. You can PBM with Rangoon in your possession.

286 12/21/2018 12:38:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Bill, on the A/N battle A, the Jp roll was 9 for a CH. If I read the rules correctly (9.2 F 6), that means that I inflict a step on the enemy unit with the lowest defense strength, even if it is already flipped.

If this is the case, I would sink the Indomitable and leave the Warsprite at full strength. That would leave the British with no air units in the hex and would give me a +1 in the ground combat (+2 for air, -1 for terrain). With a roll of 7 going up to 8, I would inflict 84 hits, which would kill the other two Br units in Rangoon.

Take a look at this and check it for me. I will wait on my PBM until we get this resolved.

240 12/13/2018 1:42:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message We’ve reached the “poker game” phase of playing our cards. I played Squarepeg in the hope you had come to a lull in drawing reaction cards. Couldn’t postpone it any longer – if you had a reaction, well then you had one that would have been played against Squarepeg anyway.

Now for Orde Wingate, I was hoping your next card play would be the “Big Push” in Burma and use Wingate to offset your offensive punch – but you put a card into FOQ, so the “Big Push” is still on. Hopefully playing Wingate as an OC will somewhat reduce the impact of your offensive.

224 12/11/2018 3:25:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message That happens just often enough that you want to pull your hair out. We are on the same map page, so rampage on.
223 12/11/2018 3:15:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message When I loaded the file before, the Step Forward button did not work. So, I shut down Vassal and reloaded with the latest file and now everything looks good.
222 12/11/2018 1:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Are we looking at the same map?

I show the Warspite, 3rd Aus Corps, B Ind Div and 1B Div all at Rangoon.
The SEAC Air is at Mandalay with the 6th Ch Army.
221 12/11/2018 1:28:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Bill, I just noticed that there is an error in Burma.

I retreated both the B Ind and 1B units into Rangoon, so the 1B would not have been taken off of the map for overstacking. That means that the SEAC air had to PBM to another location, your choice within range.

216 12/11/2018 10:10:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Sending you a log file with (15A) back in the battle hex. No PBM. Over to you.
215 12/11/2018 8:42:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message "I would send B Ind and 1B to Rangoon and 66Chin with 1Ind to 2107. That will prevent PBM of SEAC to Rangoon."

I see that that is what I HAVE to do to follow the sequence of play.

I'll send a .vsav reflecting the changes. Any PBM on your part?
214 12/11/2018 12:44:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Actually, I disagree with your ground retreat.

The Offensives player conducts the retreat and retreat happens before PBM.

I would send B Ind and 1B to Rangoon and 66Chin with 1Ind to 2107. That will prevent PBM of SEAC to Rangoon.
213 12/10/2018 11:29:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I see what happened. I had a dyslexia moment and took the offensive strength of the 15th Army (10) as the defensive value.

You are correct about wining the battle hex and it is I who will retreat.

212 12/10/2018 9:20:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Bill, the combats are not completely correct.

A/N
You have a +1 for US in the battle, so you have a .5 result and flip my air unit.

Ground
Jp 46 x .5 = 23
Flip 1Ind, 1B and B Ind for 21 hits. 2 hits go unused

Br 27 x 1.5 = 41 hits
Flip Kor for 18 and 28A for 12 =- 30. 11 hits go unused.

You lost 3 steps to my 2, so you have to retreat.

Please check this and confirm.
