3/10/2 for indirect fire on hex 5114:

base 4, -1 terrain = 3
40 3/14/2019 9:58:00 PM Turn 1 Japanese Message For 52.16 vs. 52.15, I get this:

4 fire value, +1 bazooka, +1 target unit defense value, +3 gyokusai, -2 rocky = 7 on the HE row
39 3/14/2019 9:57:00 PM Turn 1 Japanese Message For G/2/105 vs. 52.15, I'm getting these modifiers

4 fire value, +1 target unit defense value, +3 gyokusai, -2 rocky = 6
38 3/14/2019 9:50:00 PM Turn 1 Japanese Message If you activate 3/10/2 for indirect fire on hex 5114, this is what I see:

base 4, -1 terrain = 3
37 3/14/2019 9:49:00 PM Turn 1 Japanese Message Per the scenario setup instructions, 27th Division has a 2 command rating and begins with 2 commands. You rolled a 3 which means you get 1 more, so you have a total of 3 to spend.
36 3/14/2019 9:22:00 AM Turn 1 American Message I activated A/1/105 for rally to reduce the DG value.

I activated 3/10/2 for indirect fire on hex 5114

I see it as base 4 +3 barrage, -1 SC (it says subtract the target hex DV when I think it meant add) = 6

I activate G/2/105, 1/3/105, and the Bazooka to fire on 5215

Two separate shots I think since they are not in the same hex.

I see it as base 4, Rocky -2 = 2

second hex is base 4 +1 bazooka -2 = 3 HE line

Please check out my save file to confirm all good and I will roll once you confirm.

35 3/14/2019 9:03:00 AM Turn 1 American Message 3 x 1/2 = 1.5 round down to 1 plus the four command for the division = 5 Das

25 2/22/2019 1:26:00 PM Turn 1 American Message 5114 fails. Markers go in 5014 and 5215

Indy fire to 5014 with a zero is a DG result which I think is converted to a loss and a medium barrage marker goes in the hex.

Let me know if you agree.

23 2/21/2019 2:01:00 PM Turn 1 Japanese Message That all looks right to me. According to 8.6.3, barrage markers would only affect your indirect fire if they were on your firing units. So I agree with all the fire values you listed.
22 2/21/2019 9:11:00 AM Turn 1 American Message OK - Here is what I think:

4716 vs 5014: FV 4 +0 DV of Beach = 4 FV (places barrage marker)

4815 vs 5114: FV 3 -1 Cane = 2 FV (places barrage marker)

4916 vs 5114: FV 3 -1 CANE = 2 FV Not sure if garage marker modifies this.

5017 vs 5114: FV 3 -1 Cane = 2 FV Not sure if garage marker modifies this.

Let me know if this makes sense.

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

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.

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.
