153 3/10/2019 6:35:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Larry - just checking on your C1 play. You have the 1M landing on Namu (4716). That's not actually part of Battle hex A. Rather, I will get a Special Reaction roll (with the AZOI bonus), and if successful, all I need to do is send a naval unit there and the Marines will be turned back with a step loss. I wanted to confirm that was your intention.

147 3/8/2019 9:06:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Okay, I believe we are in turn 4 (Sep-Dec 42) but the ACTS systems shows us in turn 5 (Jan-Apr 1943). Am I confused here?

And if we are still in 1942, then the sub warfare roll failed as it gets a +1 for all 42 turns.

Although in attack A, the Dutch regiment could not damage the Japanese division, in attack B, the Dutch regiment even at half strength could possibly flip the Japanese (with a 2x result) since amphib assault units have half defense.
