    How did you group so many bombers? Or are you refering to 4 stacks of 4 Bombers each?

    I changed the maximum size of air stacks so that an air general could indeed command 16 divisions.

    How ever easy Remble might make it seem, everyone should realize the intense amount of micro it requires to coordinate those bombers and defend them from air attack.

    I am currently playing Germany with 5 groups of 16. It is quite difficult.

    scroll down until you find "Maximum size of air stacks" and change it to as big a number as you want. Maybe it is ARMA only though?

    Velko - I like building infrastructure

    LuXun - Some encirclements might be possible but I am still a little short on troops to try such a move without risking being cut off myself.

    cosminus - Eventually I will research better ships but they are not high priority for now as the Naval War is not a pressing issue.

    gooy - Infrastructure does have some uses even though it is not exactly vital. It does allow me to use some IC

    Thurak, alan_le_cowboy - Thank you. Modern no, better than most of my Destroyers yes, hence modern

    Nathan Madien, Sokraates - Infrastructure is as explained by Sokraates.

    Avatar018 - Progress is adequate for now

    Hermann Steiner, alan_le_cowboy, Sokraates - Thank you. My little six tanks are suddenly looking like a much more powerful force. Zero manpower is one reason I am building Infrastructure. Infrastructure helps with supply, repairs and org recovery but is just a luxury item for me. Factory build times are not affected by Infrastructure in DD.

    EnglandWarrior - Just as well my Interceptors had something to attack or it would have been a huge waste of organisation

    Austria Hungary - I don't have ARMA but you have found how well it can work. Thank you for explaining how you went about using your airforce

    serutan - My limited offensive in Europe is merely an opportunity thing and is not designed to actually get far just yet. I am waiting for the newcomers to arrive though

    harezmi - The Emperor believes that His people deserve a modern road and rail system as a reward for all of their hard work

    Beppo - Thank you. The Infrastructure is almost entirely roleplaying as it would almost certainly be done given the current circumstances. I do really like building it though. I have upgraded the entire Soviet Infrastructure several times during games so a few little provinces is nothing much really

    safferli - There are some minor benefits from building Infrastructure up but it is not necessary as I have big provinces on the home islands that can easily do that already. I was merely playing at being a writer

    Inner Circle -

    Update to follow ...

    Operation Influx

    21






    1100 February 22nd 1949.
    Africa Army Headquarters. Abadan, Persia.
    The two Marine divisions continued to be used to hasten the expansion of Japanese holdings in Africa as they swept north along the eastern coast.

    The invasion of Djibouti went without a hitch allowing another airfield and port to be denied to the enemy. Both divisions would be embarked back onto their Transport ships immediately.




    1100 February 22nd 1949.
    The Skies Over the Western Front.
    The transfer of Tanaka and Fukui to the Middle East had left a shortage of Interceptor wings in Europe which required a little re-organisation. Saboru and Watanabe would be used to escort both Dive bomber groups which would leave Fukudome's wing to conduct air superiority missions for the time being.

    The arrival of a Dutch Tactical bomber squadron was greeted by Fukudome over Kiev as it tried to attack the airfield. None of the bombers would return to their base.

    Sakai and Obata found a Transport fleet in the Gulf of Finland during their latest search of the Baltic for enemy shipping. Whatever troops were onboard would not make it to shore before their Transports were sunk.

    By February 23rd Fukudome had moved to Sevastopol to halt more bombing runs against Hata's Headquarters. The Spanish Airforce had now arrived at the front where it too found itself outclassed by the more modern and experienced Japanese aircraft. None of the Spanish squadrons would be totally destroyed but they would all suffer heavy damage before escaping.

    Shimoyama had moved north from Kiev to conduct attacks around Brest Litovsk while Nakajima hunted further north around Kaunas. The arrival of the Japanese Armour in Bialystok had opened a larger gap in the Allied lines but Hata did not possess enough spare troops to advance further. Allied forces were moving to block the advance but there were not very many reserve divisions behind the front line.

    American fleets were still trying to move to land additional forces in Finland but none of them were getting through as Obata led the attacks against them as they tried to navigate through the narrow channels off Turku.




    0400 February 24th 1949.
    Africa Army Headquarters. Abadan, Persia.
    After being picked up in Djibouti the two Marine divisions had headed north along the Red Sea giving them more landing opportunities against undefended beaches.

    They would split up on this occasion with Imamura making for Port Sudan as Banzai headed towards the port of Massaua. Capturing this province would remove the last Allied port in this part of the World.

    Admiral Kaga arrived in Djubouti a few hours later where he dis-embarked four of the six Infantry divisions that he carried from Diego Garcia. He would set sail one more and deposit the remaining two divisions in Mogadishu to the south. These troops would capture the remaining coastline in the north and head towards Addis Ababa to try and annex Ethiopia.




    2200 February 24th 1949.
    North China Army Headquarters. Stalingrad, Soviet Union.
    The successful attacks against Allied shipping in the Baltic Sea had allowed Kanin to slowly advance and re-claim territory that had been seized during the Allied landings in Finland.

    Mj. General Wakamatsu captured Oulu which had been the major port being used by the Allies in Finland. Another division was closing in on Viipuri in the south leaving Wakamatsu to take Vaasa.

    Fukudome was again in action over Sevastopol on February 25th as he intercepted two bomber squadrons from El Salvador. Both were shot down before having any chance of escaping. Romanian Interceptors were still flying regular air patrols over the Black Sea but were being ignored for the time being by Hata's air Commanders.

    More American ships tried to dodge the two Japanese Tactical bomber wings patrolling the Baltic to no avail. Kanin was sure they would continue to try and may well succeed in landing in Finland again once the bombers moved onto other targets.




    1500 February 26th 1949.
    Central Asia Army Headquarters. Sevastopol, Soviet Union.
    Hata had given orders to advance around Kiev which would capture Zhitomir and Vinnitsa and establish a buffer to protect Kiev from direct attack.

    The Allies were not willing to allow Hata to control Zhitomir just yet and forced the advancing Infantry to withdraw back towards Kiev. Time was on Hata's side and he was slowly gaining a numerical advantage, but that would likely switch again once troops from Italy, Spain and other recent additions to the Allied cause arrived.

    Ground attacks missions were being pushed deeper and deeper into Allied territory as both groups tried to hunt down easier targets. There were not very many to be found but there were still more advancing towards the front. A large number of enemy troops seemed to have left Chisinev on the Romanian border and they could easily be moving north to try and strengthen the Allied center.

    Attacking deep behind enemy lines did open the bombers up to more frequent Allied interceptions. Most of the Allied air superiority aircraft had already been dealt with locally but some remained. The two Canadian Interceptor squadrons that attempeted to bounce Nakajima over Radom did not get far as the bomber escort wing forced them to return to base with heavy losses.




    0300 February 30th 1949.
    The Skies Above Addis Ababa.
    Itabana had received orders to head south to Djibouti and conduct a reconnaisance attack towards the Ethiopian capital to ascertain the Country's defences.

    A more modern Infantry division in Addis Ababa was all that Itabana found, and it would not be there for long, which would leave Japanese troops with an enemy free march towards the Ethiopian capital.

    Hey first reply to the update - nice update

    Ethiopia will be gone soon and a nice hole appearing in the Allies' lines

    Should incur an org loss for the allied divisions as they are forced to march over the land where so many thousands of their fellow soldiers perished.

    Now i appear after a long time of lurking.
    Nice to see that the world conquest is progressing well.
    But i have to correct you. Factory building time is affected by infrastructure in DD. Add some factories to your building list in provinces with different IC values and you will see the difference. Than you can cancel it, if you want.
    But i suggest to build some factories, it doesn't cost any manpower.
    I would also suggest to research better ships, because they have such a long building time, so long term planning with naval builds is better than spontanous decisions.

    Nice work again. I'm glad to see Ethiopia taken care of soon. I wish you had ten or so more divisions in Russia so you could close some pockets. That would speed things up quite a bit.

    The fact that Remble is so over extended is what is making this AAR such a good read.

    Keep it going, and it would be a lovely bonus to remove the Ethopians fromt he allies

    It seems the US is determined to either once again land in (former) Finland or have all available transports destroyed. The second option looks much more likely.

    There is a lot of things to be said about the AI, but not that it's intentionally playing to lose.

    Not that it makes a difference in the end, mind you.

    cjwet is correct, the speed at which factories are created is linked to the amount of infrastructure in that province (in DD at least). The minimum infrastructure needed to build a factory is 40%.

    But the factory require one manpower to build. This is not explicitly said in the production fodder but you can see your MP decrease with 1 after you add a factory in the production queue.

    It doesn't look like the Allies are even bothering to try.

    In the latter versions of DD (which IIRC Remble is using) factory build times (as per the production screen) are not affected by the infrastructure level. The time which it takes a factory to come "on line" (once it has been built) and/or the recovery time if it is bombed is affected by the level.

    In provinces with high infrastructure factories will be completed faster than in lower ones. If you are playing DD this does not apply. A factory built in a 40% infra province will be built in exactly same time as in a 100% infra province

    To add onto this response, when you build a new factory, the times to finish look to be different, but the instant you let a day go by, they all change to the same day.

    Always something new.
    And to think about all this IC I have spend on Infra because I checked dates on the first day and believed Paradox, but did not bother to check next day ...
