this is assuming you have no ground unit in Rangoon, if this is incorrect I will revise, also, I believe an ASP response would require you to move with a boat the entire way.

216 8/14/2020 12:03:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message BHD: So Hermes and Exeter participated in Akyab. [Exeter] flipped and [FE Air] eliminated. From ground battle, 33 eliminated, and [3 Aus] will be sent to Imphal.

In BHC, Mandalay, instead of AVG, I would like to flip [13 AF].

To you for your PBM.
215 8/14/2020 7:57:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message Were not computed, I mean. No worries! I'll get back to you with retreat for [3 AUS] later.
214 8/14/2020 7:57:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message I can see that it was a typo as Exeter's battle factors were computed in BHB. And, like you say, it wouldn't have made a difference so let's just move forward with the understanding that it and Hermes were in BHD. I'll eliminate FE Air, but I need to have a think about where to send [3 AUS].
213 8/14/2020 7:42:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Though, I think it was a typo on my part, as their participation couldn't help battle b.
212 8/14/2020 7:33:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Ah, true, so FE air dies, you get the DRM, and kill my last ground step also.
