128 10/4/2020 8:36:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies 79 3 Operations #79: 3 / Soviets Invade Manchuria
Manchuria: If Tojo has resigned, then this card MUST be played as an event, otherwise it can only be played as an OC. If played as the event the Japanese permanently lose two Resource Hexes (3302 and 3303). Place a Soviet Flag in each hex to denote Allied control that counts for Progress of the War. Bonus: If China has not surrendered, move the China marker two boxes toward or into the Stable Front box.. RESHUFFLE: If played as an OC or discarded, place this card back in the deck and reshuffle the deck at the end of the game turn. If played as the event, permanently remove this card from the deck and do NOT reshuffle. This card may not be played as a Future Offensive.

OC: 3 EC: 0

NOTE: Deck will be reshuffled before next deal.Message from Allies:
My initial plan called for the carriers to attack Tokyo and Iwo Jima from positions that would exert allied air ZoI over all of Japan. This would put all Japanese units outside of the home islands OOS and the USN surface ships would then escort the Marine Brigade to invade Iwo Jima. Only Combined Fleet HQ would be in supply and the only unit it could activate in reaction would be the BB Yamato.
As I started to enter the move into ACTS it dawned on me that this requires two battle hexes, and the OC allows only a single battle hex declaration. Unwilling to give up on my plan, I looked for an alternative action that would achieve the same result with a single battle hex. I found no solution for this problem.

So I looked for other things to do, but have given up. The Allies are too weak and the Japanese too strong to risk a Japanese Reaction that would cause a major action at this point.

Halsey has decided on a bold alternative plan that requires the allies to achieve surprise. If the Japanese are able to intercept...I will get to use my naval repair points next turn.

Activate S. PAC HQ: Logistics 3+3=6 units.
1-2. CV Enterprise escorts Marine Brigade from Wewak to Iwo Jima. 2/2 ASP [A]

The rest of the activations go unused. Best to save the remaining units for next turn.
