    By the way, Remble, what are you going to do about Tibet?

    As I learned from Remble's last AAR, all nuclear facilities are destroyed during the fighting in that province, even if there was no fighting.

    I'm not even going to bother guessing what the secret program is, all I can think of is Tahiti from that last AAR.

    Secret mission, Good!

    I'm going to guess Australia, because you need somewhere to hide when the Bear comes calling. Or less dramatically it will provide some industry, resources etc if China is lost.

    Hmm.... secret plan. I have a few ideas.

    1. Invasion of Australia - unlikely as thats opening an unnecessary new front.

    2. Offensive in the Pacific - maybe, but Ive seen no movements pointing to this.

    3. Amphibious landing in Burma/India - I think troop movements and the rebasing of the navy point to this action. Seems like a good indeed for cutting of the Brits in Bruma quickly.

    I could be wrong, however.

    After a weekend I reapear and see that your allies are gone and the fledgling economy of Japan has to stand against the enemy for a considerable amount of time. I presume that You are aiming for the middle east to cut allied forces off from their OIL and to get you some of those precious resources.

    Keep it up and push to india. In northwestern China you have no troops and the English may try to make a push from there.

    Good updates! Looking forward to more.

    I noticed how an invasion of Dhaka means he can cut of all of Burma by taking two provinces. The British probably don't have forces at that spot at this time to contest a landing (of course there could be someone lurking there, or marching to Burma. It's not a safe move, but that'll be boring. )
    However, the Brits can supply Burma by sea, and it's not exactly clear that Remble has enough forces at land or at sea to pull everything off.

    Only two more provinces to go in Communist China. Soon the world will know China only as another word for luxurious dishes.

    I know that HoI is banned in Ch… what was the name again? Anyway, I can imagine that authorities there are keeping an eye on these forums, just in case, while Hu Jintao secretly plays HoI 2.

    Very interesting AAR so far.

    I bet for an invasion in eastern India, too. British troops in Burma will start moving and so Japanese bombers have good targets + nobody will escape this encirclement. If that´s your secret plan: Be fast, US and Commonwealth troops will most likely arrive in (western) India very soon.

    That one province DDR is quite hilarious. It's amazing the Soviets even bothered setting it up.

    Communist Party of China's doctrine is Communism: false.

    The Communist party in China has just gone ahead with too many compromises for me to call them communist. Socialist is a more relaxing term.

    Socialist is too strong as well. The better term in is free market authoritarian. All that's left of the "socialist" system are some failing state run industries. They still have the inefficient and bloated bureaucracy of a socialist state, but they don't actually provide any of the public services that other socialist states give (inefficiency not withstanding).

    Free Healthcare? No.
    Guaranteed Employment? Not anymore.
    Pension funds? Sorry about that.
    Environmental protection? Thats' just funny.

    It's just gotten to the point where the government is just run for the benefit of corporate interests.

    Also, how the hell can you control 1.3 BILLION people in a fully democratic system? They NEED to remain somewhat autocratic, if only to keep that mass of people under control...imagine 1% of the Chinese population in Europe (13 million). Now imagine that, but flush full of cash...and imagine how badly the Western economies would fare under that...

    Mangudai - The six divisions are merely passing time until their true mission comes to light. Dhaka has no beach so I can't invade it

    Lots of u-boats if they reach Japan alive. My TC will always suck from now on, although it is very high due to redeployment right now.

    At least Breslau is not a VP province so I won't have to take it to annex the U.S. Soviet controlled Tirana (Albania) could be a big problem though

    Nathan Madien - I think I have enough enemies without adding Tibet to the list but I will get around to it at some point.

    Maj. von Mauser - I can reveal that the secret project is most definately not Tahiti this time. Only because I can't reach it though.

    stnylan - All will be revealed in December as long as the timeline remains the same

    AdmiralNelson - Indeed wrong AAR and I don't have someone like Himmler to get rid of

    oddman - Thank you. Maybe I should DoW the Soviets to prevent them trying anything interesting like attacking the Allies.

    PrawnStar - Australia is in range so I won't discount it

    Murmurandus - Masterplans are always evil

    Elias Tarfarius - Or option #4 which would be all 3

    Deus - Northwestern China has troops redeploying towards it so it will be fine. As to India and Oil I cannot say as the Masterplan, an evil one apparently, is currently classified as secret.

    Sokraates - Communist China will not last much longer.

    Thurak - Thank you. India is popular, why has no one pointed their fingers at East Timor yet? Now that would be a worthy target

    SeanB - I did find it quite amusing myself, that is one puppet that won't be helping the Soviets much.

    With regards to China it is currently a Fascist state just like Japan

    A quick little puzzle for you to work out. On the European map in the November update there are a total of nine Countries with their capitals not where they were in 1936. What Countries are they? Yes its not easy to see but what fun would that be Albania and Germany do not count as they have no choice.

    Update to follow ...
