328 1/17/2019 9:25:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Play Strategy card as Event #60: 3 / East Force: Conquest of Celebes
Activation: South or South Seas HQs only. Logistic Value: 5 Paratroopers: Prior to movement place a Japanese control marker in a hex that is within extended range of an active Japanese air unit if (1) the hex is either unoccupied or is occupied solely by a Dutch regiment; and (2) the hex is not within an unneutralized Allied air ZOI. Eliminate the Dutch regiment.

OC: 5 EC: 7

Message from Japanese:
I would have loved to save this card but 21st AF getting nailed precludes it. Honestly if I could swap my turn 5 hand with turn 3 hand...

On South HQ for 6
1. 37th Army (reduced) : 2212 (Saigon) -> 3615 (Ulithi) via ST
2. 4AD : 3009 (Taihoku) -> 3307 (Sasebo) -> 3709 (Iwo Jima) -> 3813 (Saipan/Tinian) -> 3615 (Ulithi)
3. 38th Army : 2008 (Rangoon) -> 2212 (Saigon) via ST
4. 28th Army (reduced) : 2107 -> 2108 *
5-6. 15th Army, KOR Army : 2107 -> 2008 (Rangoon)

I don't think there will be any changes via Attrition and no changes in the National Status Segment, so as long as my move is confirmed I think the Allies can go ahead and quickly end the turn and start with Turn 6 reinforcements. (I count 5 PoW hexes)
327 1/17/2019 9:22:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message BTW I found out that the Sextant Conference event replacements can be used on immediately vback in supply units so that move was perfectly legal. (I already assumed it was but I got confirmation).
326 1/17/2019 1:15:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Based on 13.94 I'd have to agree. It says if Allies place a control marker the unit is gone never to return, so I assume if Allies kill an intrinsic and don't take control it does come back.

bty.
325 1/16/2019 9:07:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Regarding the Intrinsic step... we could roll but to what end? The step is only permamently eliminated if you place an Allied Control marker in the hex. Because M brigade dies you won't control the hex and the intrinsic step regenerates even if you kill it.
324 1/16/2019 8:38:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Not going to lie about the luck. Hallmark is just down the road from us in Kansas City so there may be something to that.

PBM:
I think my Kwaj attack does full damange 5+1=6 so I flipped both units.
I killed the M Brigade at Tokyo, but I think there is a roll to see if I kill the intrinsic 1 step. 7 or higher.
