31 5/12/2020 9:34:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi Ivan -

Regarding the last series of battles -

BHA - no air naval needed there, the CVL is just there for the +4 DRM advantage in ground combat. Air naval cannot eliminate the last ground step in a hex, and the Dutch unit is a single step unit.

So moving on to ground combat - it is 9 IJA factors vs. the Dutch. The final DRM is +2 due to terrain and the CVL presence. The roll was a '4' which moves to a '6', and the IJA does 1x damage - 9 hits to the Dutch regiment. The Dutch are unable to damage the attackers no matter what the roll, so the Dutch are eliminated with no damage to the IJA.

Same result but just a different way to get there.

PBM complete - file up and back to you
