125 5/22/2020 8:39:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Sorry, wait - I forgot that you attacked with an OPS card and not event one, so the A/N also has to be on 2007

In that case the only thing that changes is that the IND corps reacts to 2007, SEAC fights over 2007.

So the end result is like in the original battle file, just that [IND] and 66th are in 2007. I would leave SEAC air in Mandalay in that case.

The only difference is the hex of battle, so I think we can use this adjustment as the dies have been rolled already.

I updated the move file again

123 5/22/2020 8:18:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Yes, I referred to the log as there was no battle B in the move file.

OK, the easiest way out of this is to just change the location of ground battle (not sure I would have played the ambush card, but it still helps)

So the battle A/N in Mandalay stands like it is

battle in 2007 flips both sides and japanese army retreats back to Rangoon.

I use the Sextant event to flip the 66th Army too.

I put the [2AD] back to Bangkok as it overstacks in Rangoon, you can change its location prior to your move.
122 5/22/2020 8:01:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message I know the log said Mandalay but I think I changed it in the file to attack the Chinese Army because 2 Ops was not enough to get to Mandalay.

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.
