Message from Japanese:
Starting with the assault into 49.14

USA modifiers: -3 for the odds (1:1), +3 TQ from the gyokusai marker, -1 for my unit with the lowest TQ, net -1

IJA modifiers: -0 terrain, -0 unit defense value, -1 lowest TQ, net -1

For this and the rest of the game, my rolls will always be mine/yours
10 2/17/2019 3:21:00 PM Turn 1 American Message Wow. That went incredible bad.

Bazooka breaks as well as the miss. Looks like the assault will go in with max effect.

Over to you.

Message from American:
5115 vs 5215 i see it as base 4, Baz +1, DV -2, Unit +1, Gok +3, Night -2 or a fire value of 5
Correct, although if you target the HQ you could get a Unit +2 instead of +1.
This too will be resolved on the yellow high explosive line due to the bazooka.

I will designate the HQ to increase the chances after the last shot. HE with a FV of 6
8 2/17/2019 3:19:00 PM Turn 1 American Message Miss and AT gun breaks!!!!

Message from American:
5015 to 5114: I see it as base 4, AT +2, LtCol +2, DV -1, Unit +0, Gok +3, Night -2 or a fire value of 8
Correct except for LtCol Obrien. Special rule #11 for this scenario says that the American player can't use heroes before the 0700 turn, so he's not eligible to take part yet. So net fire value would be 6.
Since you are adding the AT gun, it looks like you resolve this fire on the yellow high explosive row instead of the red small arms row.

HE - Target unit 1/2/135 FV =6
6 2/14/2019 10:53:00 PM Turn 1 Japanese Message Sorry, that's not quite right. There is a designated target unit, it's just that the DG results apply to the entire hex.
5 2/14/2019 10:36:00 PM Turn 1 Japanese Message In this case there is no designated target unit since all of my units are soft targets. You're firing at the entire hex. I found a thread on BGG that clarifies the results when gyokusai is involved:
https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/25841871#25841871

You rolled a 4 for a result of 2DG/R*. As you said, we ignore the rout portion of the result. I have to flip my leader first, then eliminate one unit. I'll go with the medical company.
4 2/14/2019 5:45:00 PM Turn 1 American Message Normally - given this is a Banzai charge - it would kill the designated target unit. (DG2 is converted to one unit eliminated) But the rules state that the first loss must be from the leader if one is present. I think the DG marker is not placed and no rout check given the charge either.

If I am correct - go ahead and finish the rest of your moves, I will do OP fire, and then you can do the assaults.

Let me know if I have this correct.

You can just send a save file - since there is no other OP fire until you're assaults.

Message from American:
OP fire vs Med/136 target unit
1 2/10/2019 2:19:00 PM Turn 1 American Message Rob,

Got your set up on my computer. Working on where to put illumination markers. First action chit is 43rd Army Division marker. The rest of the chits will have to be assigned a random die roll during each activation phase. Back to you later.

Hope you are feeling better.

Jeff
