41 10/18/2020 4:48:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message DRMs for the ground combat are different, see 9.4:

Offensives Player Modifiers
1. If only the Offensives player has naval units in the battle hex after air-naval combat, then the Offensives player adds +2 to the die roll for shore bombardment.
2. If after air naval combat the Offensives player is the only player with active air and/or carrier units participating in the ground battle (there are no surviving active or inactive Reaction player air or carrier units) then the Offensives player adds +2 to the die roll for air superiority.
PLAY NOTE: An unopposed offensive carrier unit in the battle hex (e.g., CVE) generates both the shore bombardment and air superiority die roll modifiers for a +4.
3. Certain terrain types modify the Offensive player’s die roll:
• JUNGLE: subtract one from the die roll (–1).
• MIXED: subtract two from the die roll (–2).
• MOUNTAINS: subtract three from the die roll (–3).
Note: There is no modifier for City type terrain.

24 10/16/2020 3:02:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Hi Larry!
So far you're right, but only for the activation paths.
For supply to Menado you need a port nearby, see 6.21 A:
Overland Logistical Range:
If the last hexside crossed whentracing a supply line is a land hexside, the hex containing the unit
drawing supply must also be within 4 MPs of ground movement (8.42) of:
(a) The supplying HQ or
(b) Kunming, if an active supply source (13.75) or
(c) A Supply Eligible port (6.0).

The supply rules are really sophisticated ones...

23 10/16/2020 2:48:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message After your review, again if I have erred, I will send an updated PBM for the Dutch Cruiser will need to EMS.

Perhaps I have erred, if so, will chalk it up to learning....
22 10/16/2020 2:34:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message In case I am wrong, the 19th did not participate and remains in Medang. Result would be No damage to Zuiho and still the loss of US DD.
So PBM would be same on reaction map, but of course
(19) is frozen in Medang.


21 10/16/2020 2:28:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message With the afore message in mind, I feel McArthur can acivate (19) by going to land hex 2818, the enter Menando.
I will send 004 map .
If am wrong, please let me know and apologies if I am.
20 10/16/2020 2:26:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Hello Beda!
Here is my logic...first below.6.4
A ZOI does not affect:

• An HQ activation range path that enters or exits a hex across a
land hex side (6.3).
• A supply path that enters or exits a hex across a land hex side (6.21).
19 10/16/2020 1:00:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Want to change your reaction moves?
18 10/16/2020 12:59:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message (19LRB) in Menado is OOS.
The AZOI of an LRB unit may not neutralise another AZOI, so supply by sea to Menado is cut by AZOI of CVL Ryujo in Davao.
