48 2/20/2020 8:18:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi Sean,

Playing no card so I'm thinking your invasion of Balikpapan will be automatically successful, wiping out the defender with no possible loss to you. If so, you may as well just take off the lost unit and take care of your PBM.

45 2/17/2020 8:23:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hi Sean,

Thanks for bringing this up. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the rules somehow then. First, I certainly agree that the Burma Road becomes closed now because I cannot trace from Rangoon by sea as the plane in Bangkok will block that without there being a friendly plane in Rangoon. I had thought though that supply can still be traced to any units into the Rangoon hex from the coast due to Rangoon and the coastal hex still being under the AZOI of the air unit in Akyab. Is that wrong...?

Regards,
Jon
44 2/15/2020 12:02:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message File up and back to you -

Regarding no air unit in Rangoon - I believe this does 2 things - makes Rangoon out of supply and closes the Burma Road.

If so, please feel free to reposition your air units

43 2/14/2020 11:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message You a flip choice to make, then my PBM as I explain in the file, and then your PBM of course.

Message from Allies:
For Battle C, the air unit is worth 11 so I believe there's no need to roll as the max hits achievable is not enough to flip the ground unit.

This is for Battle D, J32

Reacted with SEAC, activating both planes, which are both part of Battle B.
