21st AF to Miri

I rarely have much luck when I redeploy Combined Fleet HQ to another base. Eniwetok is the usual destination, which does pose a threat to Oahu and Midway but abandons Alaska. There were a couple of games where I sent it to Rangoon, but that was when South HQ had a range of only 10 hexes. With this new 13 hex range HQ it gives the Japanese a lot of flexibility in that theater.

Like you say...the road not taken.

370 11/8/2019 10:01:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message End of turn stuff.

National Status: The Solomons fall to the Allies. I've reverted control of all the airfields and ports.

Make PotW, so no PW loss.

Furthermore there is no attrition that I can see (the completed trans route supplies Rangoon).

Ending Turn.

(You still have to do PBM)


369 11/8/2019 9:53:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message I wonder about that Dutch Harbor play. I'd had never seen that before and I gamed it out a bit and it opens up a chink in the JP armor. The overlapping fields of HQ range would leave Ominato (3705) exposed to a non-reactionable attack and it is within 15 hexes of a strike from Wewak and I've got the fleet coming with a Marine Division.

Assuming I went first in T7 that is at least full strength 12-12 Marine Division and a full strength 3 Aus Corps (I would replace it one step) against only intrinsic defense and I'd get a +2 for air to cancel out the mixed terrain. That is a pretty guaranteed landing on Honshu right there. Ominato is a port, so plant a couple of CVs and a Battleship and I should be able to hold it and supply it.

Now granted, you could plant the reinforcement reduced army and replace another one (or two) in there (assuming you saw the hole - which you probably would have), but you're pulling that away from the CBI theater for that.

At any rate, we'll never know now. But that game would have interesting to play out. =)

365 11/6/2019 3:34:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Darn it! I did not think that through properly, even the better line of play occurred to me. I was going to ASP the reduced SS brigade to Dutch Harbor. While it would be removed for attrition at the end of the turn I could have used my last card to remove Combined Fleet HQ from the board and then place it with air and ground forces at Dutch Harbor at the start of next turn. I did not do so because I thought that the 3rd SN at Attu would be eliminated due to attrition, failing to note that it is full strength and could survive attrition.

Operations in the Central and North Pacific require that Combined Fleet HQ be relocated closer to the front and I never got around to doing that.
