I took out the damaged ships from my main fleet (two CV's were a bit damaged), and added the two BB's. My main fleet now have 6 CV's and 2 BB's (+ the 2 CV's in repair).
0055.png


I got 300 IC! I also make the serial on the CA's longer, so I make 8 more when these one finishes. As for the CL's I just produce one series, because I need to save a bit on IC usage. I have plenty of ships in production as it is.
0056.png


Offensive Chit is over.
0057.png


Rebasing 10 transports to Iwo Jima. I will merge them with a transport fleet (with combat ships).

0059.png



Adding two series of Transport 1941 ships, so I can upgrade my transport fleet. As they have a bit better range, but maybe more important better speed.

OMG I read almost the entire AAR in one read, except for the last few pages of the invasion of USA.

Love it. Your AAR is great. Its in-depth with plenty of tips. Very helpful to anyone wanting to play Japan or a Naval focused nation. The small auto return button in regard to naval landings...never noticed it before now.
A really good read and a great inspiration. Thankyou!

In terms of your question about Wargames, yes they do help. Impressive, btw; how you just kept on investing in one wargame after another.

Also. Something tells me that you are more than ready to go multiplayer. That is if you havent already done that. I think your gonna annex USA too. Good plans btw. Good situations maps.

Thanks for the feedback and nice compliments. I am not the best at writing english (second language) and I don't have so much interest in story-telling or time/interest to invest to historical facts. So I try to just take some good screenshots and let them do the talking. I am actually pasting each one right into paint so I can edit it on the go, it makes it so much easier for making the AAR. But I can do with some spellchecking when I look back at posts.

When I look back at the AAR, I wonder where the 4 CV's I set into production in May 1941 according to post 103 (page 6) went? It is not in production now. But, the game has crashed several times, so it could be it crashed and then I did not remake them or something. Good about the wargames, I would maybe even have done a few more if I actually knew they were helpful.

Got quite good grasp on the game mechanics and read a lot on the forums, so I have tried to make the AAR something new players can learn from. And yeah, it is a lot of naval, so perfect AAR for learning such stuff. That being said, I am not a really into the math behind everything so I can't argue for the "perfect fleet" or anything like that. I mainly did this AAR because I could not find any Japan AAR where they got to Pearl Harbour, and I was trying to take USA as Japan, which I failed at 3-4 times before I started this AAR. I did some research, then knowing I needed lots of MTN divisions for west-coast of USA. And I realized the Light Infantery doctrine probably is the best for Japan, as it peaks in 1942-1943, and it has a lot better org-regain than for example Mobile Doctrine, so I did not try to switch this time.


As for multi-player. I am not sure. A game takes such long time, and my game even crashes every now and then.

It could be. I am trying to launch a Panama invasion as fast as possible, which is not to fast. Hoping to finish off USA early 1943. Soviet Union is my next target if I would win against USA.

As for nukes go, does someone now how the nuke range could be in 1945-1946? If I annex everything around my main-islands, in thousands of km, are they safe from nukes then?

13th September - 28th September 1942


Transporting 4 INF and 4 GAR to Philipphines from main islands.
0095.png



I have got some of the strategic redeployed units. But they are still really low on ORG.
0096.png


Strategic Redeploying these two CAV division to the north. Maybe a bit to close to the frontline, but I had already taken the screen shot when I started thinking that.
0097.png


Overview. Everything going really good at the moment. Except that there are a few US divisions closing in from the east.
0098.png


Getting my two wings of 4x INT to do some daytime Air Supueriority, I just have them quite far back for now, as I don't want to risk losing the province they are based at.
0099.png


Overview. No battles going on right now.
0100.png


I have rebased my main fleet in the Philepphines, they will follow the marines over to USA.
0101.png


The 4 INF divisions I just transported to Phillephines I am transporting to Wotje. These divisions will do the island hopping from now on.
0102.png


I am losing Denver, so I retreat from it to Colorado Springs.
0103.png


Overview.
0104.png


Adding these two MTN division into the attack on Salt Lake City.
0105.png


The result.
0106.png


Helping out attack with 4 MTN units that got strategic redeployed in, so they are not full ORG at all.
0107.png


Lost Great Falls in the north.
0108.png


Both attacks going good.
0109.png


Overview over production. Everything looks really good. I have spare IC, resources are floating, and I have both convoys and escortes. I currently have 5 series of convoy transports in production.
0110.png


Transporting my MAR divisions to USA, to be ready for Panama Canal attack. They will not arrive San Diego before 24th October. Which means Panama Canal attack probably will not be before in December.
0111.png


I made a pocket! Looks good now.
0112.png


USA information. They only have 33 INF and 4 ARM divisions, and this is before the 5-6-7-8 divisions I might destroy in the pocket above.

Interestingly USA is focusing on producing a strong navy. Which seems a bit stupid of them as they will not have time to get out any other ships than destroyers before the war could be over.

Hi. I am back again. I have played some more, and I am going to put out my progress again here. I have had a break since January, as I have been travelling a bit and moving twice. But I am back again with more posts. The game has been running smoothly without any crashes so far, which is really nice.

28th of September - 6th of October

New units ready to deploy.

6th of October 1942 - 11th of October 1942


Just seeing a bit on organization regain levels. These ARM divisions are placed in mountain province, but I don't think it should affect organization regain. But, I think infrastructure does that, because of supply efficiency. Found this on a thread when I googled:

"- difference between unit morale and default morale (30)
- current supply efficiency
- percentage of maximum organization left (4 steps: 0<25<50<75<100 => regain at 3x/2x/1x/0.5x normal rate)
- bad weather (snow, storm, blizzard, mud)
- whether the unit is in a friendly or occupied (enemy) province"

https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/organization-regain.809892/
0125.png

Some MOT divisions placed in a forest. But I don't know the infrastructure levels.
0126.png


These ARM at home have a really good organization regain.
0127.png

In the north. Moving some units.
0128.png


The rebels are crushed.
0129.png

Destroying more US division(s) (one will be destroyed) in Salt Lake City.
0130.png

Attacking Casper.
0131.png

Ongoing battles.
0132.png

Moving divisions in South-East USA. 23 Japanese divisions in the picture.
0133.png

Support attacking Casper with two divisions in Billings. They supported the Bozeman attack which is already won.
0134.png

Two Canadian divisions destroyed in Victoria.

11th October 1942 - 17th October 1942

Three US divisions have landed in Victoria. I am counituing the attack with my four MTN divisions.
0137.png


Just finished researching "1940 Naval Infantery Division". My next technology will be "Improved Field Artillery" as I have blueprint for it (I guess one of my puppets have researched it already).
0138.png


Tulsa is taken by a US ARM division.
0139.png


17th December my two CAV will arrive in Rankin Inlet. I guess it should be quite cold thee in December.
0140.png


Intelligence report of USA. They have 36 infantery divisions and 2 ARM divisions. Not good that it is going up. If I meet 60 US divisions, then I could be in for some trouble. They still have their IC at around 430, so they could pump out a lot of divisions.
0142.png


Victory at Casper.
0143.png


In South East USA I have met some resistance at Jackson in a US ARM division. I am attacking in with four MOT divisions, and also sending two MOT divisions around its right flank.
0144.png


USA is taking back undefended provinces.
0145.png


More of the attacks in South-East USA. I am moving two MOT divisions to Birmingham, Al to complete the encirclement of the US AMR division in Jackson. Also added two CAV divisions to the attack of Jackson.
0146.png


Overview of USA. They have 425 IC.
0147.png

Victory in Jackson.

Moving these 4 divisions to USA; 2 ARM and 4 MIL.
0149.png


Destroyed 4 US divisions in Victoria!
0150.png


Met some resistance at Rankin Inlet, but looks like I will win the attack still.
0151.png


Troops movements in South-East USA. US ARM division in Jackson is soon going to be destroyed as it is reatreating into japanese province with two MOT divisions.
0152.png


Strategic redeploying 6 INF divisions to South-East USA.
0153.png


Overview of Mid-USA front.
0154.png


Terrain map-mode of same area. Soon getting out of the mountains and into the plains on the other side. But since I have so many MTN divisions there, I will maybe lose some of my advantage fighting on flat ground.
0155.png


Managed to sink some British transports with my SUBs. UK still have 211 IC and is a major power. I want to keep them in the fight with Germany, and I am going to (try to) take out Germany first (if I managed to knock out USA first).
0156.png


Intelligence report of UK. They have 130 INF divisions, 3 ARM division, 26 fighters and only 4 bombers. 6 BB and 5 CV is not that good, but hopefully enough to keep the Germans out of doing any landings on the UK islands.
0157.png


USA is advaning in the South-East.
0158.png


One more US division landed in Victoria.
0159.png


Gave some support attack to the Rankin Inlet attack.
0160.png


Also attacking Prince Albert with more units; two CAV divisions.
0161.png


Destroyed one more US division in Victoria.
0162.png


Overview of South-East USA.
0163.png


Destroyed a US division in Bozeman. Also getting attacked in Edmonton; 3 US divisions against my 2 two (not full ORG) MTN divisions. Need reinforcements.
0164.png


Reinforcing Edmonton with two CAV division.
0165.png


MOT org regain when moving in USA; 0.03 each day.

25th October 1942 - 4th November 1942

Reatreating my two MTN divisions from Edmonton as they were about to lose the battle.
0167.png


Terrain map mode of the north north Canada front.
0168.png


My 10 MAR divisions just arrived in San Diego. They will need many days of just sitting there, before the Panama attack, with a ORG regain of 0.51.
0169.png


Destroyed the US ARM division reatreating from Jackson.
0170.png


Attacking Fort Peck in North-Mid USA. Terrain Map mode, attacking into plain now.
0171.png


I am constantly getting bombed at the front in South-East USA. But with some limited airbases, it is difficult to get my interceptors closed to the front.
0172.png


Some more ORG regain pictures. I don't know what kind of infrastructure was in the province (I think it should affect), so I don't know the value of the information.
0173.png


Strategic redeploying two MTN divisions that just took Victoria to the front at Calgary.
0174.png


Getting attacked at Tupelo by two US INF divisions and a HQ, against my two MOT divisions. Need reinforcements.
0175.png


Reinforcing Tupelo with 2x2 MOT from nearby provinces.
0176.png


Victory at Fort Peck.
0177.png


Denver is taken back by US forces. And if you are interested in what Brazil have in industrial capacity it is currently 50.
0178.png


Not looking good in Tupelo. Hopefully help will arrive before defeat.
0179.png


Counter-attacking Denver again with 6 divisions.
0180.png


Birmingham Al, from where two MOT divisions are reinforcing Tupelo is attacked by two US divisions. I will continue reinforcing Tupelo and leaving Birmingham, Al undefended.
0181.png


Victory at Denver.
0182.png


Reinforcements arrived Tupelo. It should be able to hold now. US forces advancing into the undefended province Birmingham, Al.
0183.png


Overview of South-East USA. I am about to encircle a US paratrooper division in Pens***a.
0184.png


Anchorage is revolting. I currently have a MIL division there. Hopefully it will crush the partisans.
0185.png


Adding two MTN divisions to the attack of Edmonton. I already had two CAV divisions moving there when I lost it, so they are already halfway there.

Attacking Kansas City from Tulsa with two ARM divisions.
0188.png


Setting "Air Supiority" mission in day time for my four INT wings based at Mobile. It is weird they don't have range enough for flying in Jackson even though they have range enough to go to provinces which are further away.
0189.png


Moving two MOT division back to Macon to block the retreat of the one encircled US paratrooper division.

Support attacking Kansas City with two INF divisions.
0192.png


I am being attacked by two US divisions, which one is a tank, in Pine Bluff. My two CAV divisions will lose this, so I move in two CAV division from nearby province in support.
0193.png


My 8 Light Cruisers just finished. They will be deployed in home islands right away as undeployed ships take huge TC load.
0194.png


Holding out at Tupelo but my MOT divisions there don't have much org. Pine Bluff is also still holding.
0195.png


I decide to retreat from Tupelo as my MOT divisions are low org, and I need forces in Vicksburg/Pine Bluff.
0196.png


Battle of Flin Flon. I am meeting some US resistance, but I probably manage with my two MTN divisions.
0197.png


Strategic redeployed my two new ARM divisions from Los Angeles to Mobile.

Economy screen. You can see some of my production here. I get more fighting divisions around 13th-15th December.
0208.png


Victory at Pine Bluff.
0209.png


USA intelligence report. A bit less divisions now with 28 infantery divisions and 1 ARM.
0211.png


Partisans appear in Juneau. I send one of the divisions in Victoria to crush the partisans.
0212.png


Adding 4 more series of MIL production. I produce them with MP-brigades already attached, I lose a tiny bit of efficency, but it makes my life a bit easier also.
0213.png


Overview of USA front
0214.png


Rebasing a escorted transport fleet back to Japan main islands, so it can bring more troops to the USA again.
0215.png


Attacking Omaha with two MTN divisions that are not full organization (ORG).
0216.png


I am being attacked in Vicksburg. My four divisions there are low on ORG, so I make a attack on Tupelo with two other really low ORG divisions to help them out.
0217.png


I end up winning both battles.
0218.png


I think Tupelo got reinforced again. I at least quit the attack as I met resistance again.
0219.png


Attacking Regina.

November 22nd 1942 - 30th November 1942

Naval landing on Guam underway.
0221.png


I had "auto-return to base" turned on when setting the naval landing mission. I rebase the ships to Guam so I the four INF divisions can do more landings.
0222.png


Two new transports just finished production.
0223.png


Naval landing at Truk next.
0224.png


More GAR finished production. These will be used on protecting islands.
0225.png


Always nice when you repel attacks on your convoys.
0226.png


Success in defending Vicksburg.
0227.png


Miami is in Japanese hands.
0228.png


Attacking Nebraska City.
0229.png


Meeting some problems in the attack. A US HQ also just arrived in Nebraska City.
0230.png


Truk is defended by 4 UK divisions. So I quit my attack an return back to Guam.
0231.png


What is the combat effectiveness of HQs? I hope that "Defensive effectiviness 131 percent." does not affect the other divisions also.
0232.png


I quit the Nebraska City attack as I am not winning it.

1st December 1942 - 5th December 1942

I am a bit worried about Anchorage, where my MIL division is still fighting the partisans, since there is advancing one more division of partisans from east. So I get reinforcements from nearby.
0234.png


My two ARM divisions at Kansas City is being attacked.
0235.png


I attack Nebraska City, from where US is attacking my two ARM at Kansas City, to help them out.
0236.png


Victory at Omaha. Also going good at Regina.
0237.png


Overview of South-East USA.
0238.png


Getting out my 2nd Fleet to protect som transports that are rebasing to Nagoya.
0239.png


Attacking Jonesboro.
0240.png


I need to read up on what HQs do, and I should use them more myself.
0241.png


I retreat my two ARM divisions from Kansas City. Nebraska City is reinforced with one US CAV division.
0242.png

5th December 1942 - 12th December 1942

Overview of South-East USA.
0245.png


I am have a unused HQ, I am bringing to Denver.
0246.png


Victory at Jonesboro.
0247.png


My new MTN divisions are soon ready. I make two of the series longer as I can afford my current production spending. My IC is also going up all the time as the IC in occupied US provinces repairs.
0248.png


I currently have 106 divisions in USA/Canada.
0249.png


Still fighting in Nebraska City.
0250.png


Just finished researching "1942 Infantery Division". I go on researching "Basic Electronic Computers" next.
0251.png


Trying an attack on Little Rock. Also sending MOT around to Fort Smith for an encirclement.
0252.png


I stop the attack on Little Rock. My divisions are low on ORG and that is not the one US ARM division I was attacking.

13th December 1942 - December 16th 1942

Just finished researching "Fighter Veteran Iniative". I then proceed down the tactical bomber doctrine to get night bombing.
0254.png


South-East USA
0255.png


Battle of Nebraska City looking good so far.
0256.png


Intelligence report of USA. They only have 22 infantery division! I guess I have destroyed some, but if that number is correct, I am winning this.
0257.png


10 new divisions ready to deploy. They are going straight to USA.
0258.png


I took all the 10 above, except I traded 2 MIL for 2 GAR, that I am going to place on Pearl Harbour, so the two INF divisions there can fight in USA.
0259.png


Finished researching "Improved Field Artillery". I decided that I am not going to build tactical bombers. But instead going for strategic bombers and CAS. So I research strategic bombing doctrine instead.
0260.png


I cancel the tactical bomber doctrine researching. I will from night bombardment technology down the strategic bomber doctrine tree, also be able to research the night fighting technologies. I can't get such an "night technology" from the close-air-support bomber doctrine.
0261.png


I choose a on-board aircraft radar as my next technology as it is a 1941 technology. I try to not research so much 1942-1943 non-critical technologies so I can catch up on escpecially air technology.
