Thanks BC  O0

Johore Bharu should fall next turn as the IJA marches in, to the northwest the 18th div who took a different route to everyone else (!)

North of Kuantan the IJA attack the old inhabitants and push them further west

Everythings going to plan here and we should be in Singapore for Christmas. Bombers have been moved into Mersing with its newly expanded airfield, there are no fighters present so theyll go unescorted IF theyll go unescorted



The Wake fiasco, the KB is coming west to provide CAP for the invaders, id hoped to avoid using the 144th regiment on the western ships hoping the 52nd Maizaru company on the southern ships would be enough, but some ass sank them all!! The 144th is takes for Port Moresby so will get straight back on the ships



And the biggest calamity so far......... the 23rd Air Flotilla gets battered off Manilla thanks to a cross eyed fleet commander, theres a fraction of the group left, i can manage without the air support value, im just hoping the fact that there is some presence of a HQ group however small is enough to provide the admin benefits, otherwise ill need to ship in another HQ and reassign all those planes to that one - le sigh

I'm very impressed my your progress UCG. Do the Japanese not need their carriers to support the land offensive across the South Pacific? Is land based air power alone capable of supporting their needs?

In the land locked areas it's much safer and more effective to use land based air - the only temptation to bring the carriers in land is to take on any surrounding navy ships that land based air struggle with like the fast destroyers and cruisers

For the way I play the carriers are an extension of the land based air, supporting island and atoll attacks or far away bases where land based air can't be brought to bear

with my hand on heart i would say the best thing you could do is read a few AARs (not this amateur hour attempt!!) but ones by the pros over at Matrix, go to the AAR section and sort it by replies or views to give you some idea of how popular they were - id avoid the one that comes up by Capt Mandrake at the top, its full of in jokes and forum humour thatll mean fk all - it did to me anyway - the two best in my opinion are by PzB he plays the Japanese, and Andy Mac his opponent, they both did one AFAIK, ive only read PzBs as im a JFB

and then find an opponent and jump straight in, agree with the oppo there may be a few 'can i redo that turn because i didnt realise' moments

are you allies or Japanese?

Here's a link to some tutorial videos. I haven't watched them yet so I can't speak to quality.

Thanks.  I started watching those a few days ago but the guy is just basically reading through Gradenko's tutorial that he found on the Matrix forums.  That would be OK if it weren't for the fact that he's not the most skilled reader out there.  Listening to him try to read the name "Gradenko" is painful.

Malaya



Southern Borneo/Java




Rabaul



Its gone quieter whilst the second wave invasion forces get ready to land and the support troops move in. With KyzBP knowing where the KB is i feel he thinks hes got it easy in the Pacific, in these few early weeks its essential to capture the oil in the DEI and the Pacific takes a back seat. Once Wake falls the KB is headng south to Truk to refuel and repair any damaged planes, it is then heading south to harass enemy shipping coming from the US and heading to Australia and Fiji
