150 5/7/2020 2:25:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Hi Sean !
Sorry for the mistake ! forgot this activation requirement ! Of course you can switch activations in order to allow the paratroopers to land.
For the others, since i made an AA, I want to be sure to win the air/naval battle in case you throw up in the battle one of your 6 range fighter and a 9 pop up out of your cup ! I don't want to experiment the same outcome of the last Manila battle.
149 5/6/2020 5:31:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Hi Jeff -

Regarding the paradrop into Balikpapan - the air unit conducting the drop has to be active, and within the extended range of the air unit prior to the air unit moving for the offensive.

3AD at Davao would be able to do that drop if you activated that unit instead of the 4AD at Clark Field, and would still ensure the success of your attack at Manila

I can make that change in your attack and continue with the offensive resolution if you wish -

Concerning the attack at Manila - since the defenders are already reduced, you could use just one of the air and one of the naval units and ensure the same result - unless this attack helps with re-positioning them during PBM, which is a valid way to move units a long way without using Strat moves, which can't go thru enemy ZOIs.

Let me know -
Sean

Message from Allies:
intel die roll not needed due to no air naval combat impact, also no HQ in range to react.

BHA air naval combat no effect

BHA ground combat -

Japan 18 factors +2 DRM

If you would have kept the Zuiho at range, you would have no DRM -
Zuiho in the hex provides both the air bonus, plus the naval bonus - provided that there are no defending air or naval units left when ground combat begins.

Allies cannot damage attackers, so only 1 die roll

'0' is the only roll that will repel the attack -


136 5/4/2020 1:05:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Play Strategy card as Operations #62: 2 / Kamikaze Attack
Play prior to one battle of the Offensive that is within 11 hexes of Tokyo (3706) and within extended range of a Japanese air unit. The Japanese player eliminates two Allied naval steps (Japanese player's choice, may not eliminate a unit unless there is no other option), while reducing the Japanese air unit whose range was used one step (even if this would eliminate the air unit). No more than one Kamikaze per battle, but more than one Kamikaze per offensive is allowed. Draw One Strategy Card. Remove from play if used as an event.

OC: 4 EC: 0

Message from Japanese:
Activation of South HQ = 3 activations

Task Force Tjilatjap
1/ Activation for Korean Army
2/ Activation for Zuiho

I don't know if I have to move Zuiho inside the Hex to have the +2 ground combat or if I can have it outside the Hex, my intuition says that I should be inside (sounds more logical)

Battle Hex Tjilatjap

3/ Activation for 3AD moves to 2415 (Miri)
