389 9/15/2019 8:45:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message The situation in N. India is not unusual for this point in the game. Many of the Commonwealth forces in Australia should be with SEAC to at least threaten the liberation of Dacca. Those units, especially the naval units, were not useful where they deployed.

The US needs to keep a significant deterrent force at Oahu to defend against Japanese attacks on Midway. It can be difficult to retake once the Japanese land an army there. A force capable of retaking Attu/Kiska should be in the area as well, just to threaten it.

Allied power was building and Japanese were not likely to make more major offensives. You just need to be a bit more aggressive in taking bases in New Guinea.

A Good learning game. I hope you enjoyed it.
388 9/15/2019 8:33:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message End of turn
Hawaii occupied for the 1st turn.
Allies captured only 3 bases this turn, so fail to meet the Progress of War requirement.

Activate: US SW or Central Pacific HQs only. Logistic Value: 12 Conditions: In order for this card to be played as an event at least one Japanese Islands hex must be declared a battle hex and the potential for a ground combat must exist in the designated Japanese Islands battle hex.

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:
There are a lot of interesting things I could do with this event, but in the end I believe all of them would be doing the allies a favor. The USN fleet is now strong enough to do a lot of damage if he gets to react to my operation. Rather than sacrifice ships and air unit in battle, I will simply remove Combined Fleet HQ to the turn track for redeployment next turn.
384 9/12/2019 3:40:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message What abt now?
383 9/12/2019 11:48:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Still not quite there. Port Moresby has two air and two ground units, so one too many units for stacking.

back to you
381 9/11/2019 1:58:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message That does not work either. The Japanese have an air ZoI over Koepang and the allies need to neutralize that to conduct an AA vs Koepang. You would need to send a carrier along with the ground unit.
380 9/11/2019 3:24:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message I try a landing on Timor. With little support.

379 9/10/2019 4:18:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Yes, the 1MP is insufficient to allow ground movement into a mixed terrain hex. Still looking for an updated log file. No rush if you are busy.

This event ends a US inter-service rivalry. Flip the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker to its Strategic Agreement side. If the US Inter-Service Rivalry marker is already on Strategic Agreement side there is no additional effect. Bonus: In addition the Allied player immediately receives 3 Chinese ground and 1 Allied air replacement steps that must be used immediately (cannot be saved) on in supply units. Allied air units can be in the air units in China box. In addition, the Allies may immediately construct the Jarhat Trans Route for no cost. If Jarhat already constructed then either Ledo or Imphal may be constructed. Remove from play if used as an event.

360 8/28/2019 4:46:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message With the +2drm for having an air unit I thought that I had a x1 result for 29 hits, but then I remembered that there is a -1drm for the Jungle terrain, so one Chinese army survives.

Until this latest version of the game, the South HQ had a range of 12 hexes. The supply path from Saigon to Columbo is 13 hexes, since the sea exit from Rangoon has to go south from there. With the new range of 13 hexes this HQ can now supply Japanese units in Columbo which allows the Japanese to isolate all of India from supply.

The allies now need to maintain an air ZoI from Madras to protect the LOC to India. The game has changed a lot in the SE Asia part of the map.

Since Wotje is unoccupied, you may send the Marine unit alone on this AA. The Marine unit is only required if the single hex island has a defending unit at the time you conduct your movement.

345 8/24/2019 3:52:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message In fact even to use the second type of Strategic Air tpt the unit must be activated. In practice the unit is lost until I can place a valid HQ in range...

344 8/24/2019 3:50:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message I had not realized that the SEAC unit could not be activated if placed there. Pretty useless. I will check the rule on the strategic transport to move it out.
And I will make my move again
343 8/22/2019 7:24:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Your move will require some changes.

1. CPAC HQ may not activate commonwealth units, so the SEAC LRB may not be part of this operation.

2. Each of the two US Army corps require 2 ASPs to conduct their AAs so you have used 4 ASP. Note that Tarawa is not a port, so any land unit moving there is conducting an AA.

3. Finally, note rule 8.45 Section D.
US Army Amphibious Assault Special Restrictions
There is a special restriction for US Army ground units. They maybonly conduct amphibious assault movement into a Japanese controlled
and occupied one hex island if they end their movement in a hex containing a US Marine unit that also just completed amphibious assault movement into that hex. In all other circumstances, the presence of a US Marine unit is not required for a US Army unit to conduct Amphibious Assault. Nor are there any restrictions on US Army ground units for amphibious assaults on multi-hex islands or during Reaction.

I will also point out that there is no way the AA you conducted will be successful. The Japanese get a +3drm for the AA so are assured of at least a x1 result for 18 hits. The US army corps defense factor is 1/2 = 6 for the AA so will certainly be eliminated.

290 8/2/2019 6:39:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Hi Claudio - The Japanese did not play the event, they used the card to conduct an operation. Using the OC=4 with a -2drm the allies needed to roll 0-6 to avoid the surprise attack. The '7' is too high, so the Japanese achieve surprise and get to attack first.

With the +3drm for the surprise attack, the Japanese achieve a x0.5 result for 18 hits. This eliminates the AVG air unit. The allies then attack with 5 factors for the SEAC AF and 5 hits will do no damage.

Japanese PBM is done.
