Now this should throw the cat amidst the pigeons. Of course, there are still a fair few divisions in Burma and they likely take a while to catch. Perhaps it might be time to start a little convoy raiding to see if you can reduce their supplies (once you cut them off from India proper, of course)

After catching up on all the reading, great AAR btw, I have noticed that your carrier fleets keep getting stiffed by lack of proper weather for fighters. Do you have any suggestions to a good fleet make up that would allow night-battles/bad weather but yet still enjoy the luxury of long-range combat in good weather....


Thanks and a a great aar

I think that the only thing that you can do is to put some CA in case that the fleets close range ,but if your carriers keep the fleet at their range CAs will not fire anything.

germanpeon - That army is pretty large yes and more modern. We shall see what they think of having enemy troops behind them :)

Maj. von Mauser - Your welcome. The USN is indeed becoming very active.

Murmurandus - My evil twin writes some responses ;)

Sokraates - Thank you. The AI is my enemies main weakness, which is probably just as well.

Deus - The main Submarine fleet is still several months away and will need a pretty long time in port to repair itself. I might use a Battlefleet to convoy raid though.

Ektoras - Thank you. The Soviets will come and the Soviets will die. It might take a while but they will, or at least they had better. I am trying to add a little more dialogue this time around but most of the updates will probably be straight combat with the normal explainations of whats going on. Dialogue does seem to be fairly popular so it will be used when its appropriate but I do not wish to make this too dialogue heavy.

OneArmed - The invasion does look like it will succeed initially at least. Very little Soviet build up yet but some.

Reado, sbr - Thank you :)

stnylan - I have every confidence in the AI to almost completely ignore this invasion until its far too late. Convoy raiding would have to be by Battlefleet unless this drags on for months, which it could do.

Striker475 - Forts are defensive. If the Soviets wish to attack Japan and lose their Country as a result it is their choice :)

Felamid, Ektoras - Thanks. To be completely honest I dislike Carrier fleets purely because they are almost useless 50% of the time. Give them good weather and daylight and they are devastating but at night they are far too vunerable.

There is no real way to ensure that a CTF will close to guns range at night as it will usually stay at CV range as it tries to do during the day. The best all round Battlefleet for any situation, in my opinion, contains a lot of SHBB's with escorts and 2 CVL's to allow it to close with CTF's.

The biggest problem the IJN is facing is their doctrine disadvantage which is allowing enemy ships to close when they really shouldn't be able to. Some of this has to do with them escorting Transports which drags their positioning down a lot but its also nearly always present in other battles. It is pretty rare that my Battleships get to fire at their max range rather than their enemies and the same seems to be true for the Carriers.

Update to follow ...

Operation Dilemma
2





0000 December 8th 1944.
North China Army Headquarters. Jinghong, China.

Higashikuni was watching British forces continue their advance into Siam without reacting to the invasion behind thier lines. There were an unknown amount of enemy troops in India and there could be enough to stop the invasion as far as he knew.​

dec8440000gr1.jpg

More British troops had entered Baoshan where Lt. General Shimoyama was in the process of making them regret their advance. Redeploying forces from China were due to arrive in Xiaguan within the next few days which would give Higashikuni enough troops to attack this area after they had recovered from their movement.​

dec8440200gr2.jpg

The invasion of Cuttack had been completed successfully and there now twelve Japanese infantry divisions in the province recovering from their landing. Their primary target was still Calcutta before it could be reinforced.

Both Transport fleets, escorted by Carrier Group C, headed back towards southern Siam to pick up more troops from Alor Star. This would weaken Japanese defences in this area but the British force facing them was slowly being destroyed and was no longer as potent a threat.​

dec8441200gr1.jpg

Nagano's Carriers encountered the same small British fleet as they set sail towards Alor Star, this time they would manage to sink the Light Cruiser HMS Bellona. Aircraft from IJN Junyo would be credited with sinking this vessel.

Concern was beginning to mount for the combat effectiveness of Carrier Group C as its Carriers slowly began to take damage from small enemy fleets, with their escorting ships failing to stop such attacks.​





0000 December 9th 1944.
The Skies Above the Mariana Trench.

Ozawa was already airborne and searching for the large American Battlefleet known to be in the area. Unfortunately his aircraft got side tracked and attacked a much smaller fleet.​

dec9440000gr1.jpg

The two Destroyer Divisions would suffer as a result, but the main American fleet would escape the Naval bombers for now. Interceptor squadrons were still following its progress as it entered the North Mariana Trench.​





0300 December 9th 1944.
24 Gundan Headquarters. Cuttack, India.

General Ueda, commanding forces in India, noted that his forces had now reorganised from their invasion and he gave the orders to break out of the beach head.​

dec9440300gr1.jpg

He led nine divisions towards Calcutta and left three to defend Cuttack. The single British division blocking his advance was quickly overcome and forced to retreat.​





0700 December 9th 1944.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Gulf of Martapan.

The situation around the Marianas had worsened with the arrival of the large American fleet and Yamamoto was keeping a very close eye on proceedings.​

dec9440700gr1.jpg

The Battleships had detected and attacked the Submarine fleet guarding the North Mariana Trench with 6 Sensuikantai being sunk before Admiral Suekuni could withdraw to the safety of Saipan harbour. The Light Cruiser USS Trenton would be the first enemy ship for several months to sink a Japanese vessel.​

dec9442200gr1.jpg

In retaliation Ozawa finally caught up with Admiral Turner and began to exact vengeance upon the Battleship USS California. Ozawa pursued the fleet into the South East Mariana Basin where the USS California came close to sinking. Turner would guide his fleet south and into probable Allied air cover which would stop the bombers being able to finish the sticken Battleship. The Naval bombers could easily reach the areas around the Carolines but this area was almost certainly patrolled by interceptors and was therefore a no go area for Ozawa.

While he was considering the options of following Turner or not other news convinced him that the USS California would be safe for now.​

dec11440600gr1.jpg

The United States Navy had sent two Battlefleets not one into the Marianas. The second fleet was even more powerful than the first, with one Aircraft Carrier as well as what looked to be the rest of the American Battleships. These ships were the more modern variants in the United States naval arsenal. The USS Bon Homme Richard was the most modern Aircraft Carrier afloat and to make matters even worse the fleet was commanded by one of America's better Admirals in Spruance.​





0600 December 11th 1944.
Industry Offices. Tokyo, Japan.

Ginjiro had managed to reduce the populations dissent to zero after several days of allowing the supply stockpile to slowly reduce to speed up the process.​

dec11440600gr4.jpg

With the dissent gone he channeled the extra production back into supplies to repair the hole that he had created. The production would remain as it was for a few days to stabalise the situation.​





0800 December 11th 1944.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Gulf of Martapan.

Yamamoto's decision to bring BB Division 1 to Singapore proved to be the right one as Koga found an enemy fleet trying to navigate the Bangka Strait and possibly bring reinforcements to Burma.​

dec11440800g1.jpg

Only one Transport fleet would be sunk on this occasion but it was forced to turn around. The Battleship IJN Fuso would sink the 31st Transport Division.​

dec11442300g1.jpg

Ozawa caught up to the new American fleet off the coast of Guam and he began to try and convince Spruance to leave the area. The American Admiral had other plans as he continued to sail his fleet towards Palau.​

dec11442300g2.jpg

Yamamoto's fleet had detected a Brazilian Transport fleet trying to run his blockade. It would not succeed but would also not be sunk. The Barazilian Navy was proving to be very hard to sink.​





0000 December 12th 1944.
Industry Offices. Tokyo, Japan.

Japanese industry was not producing very much in the way of Armed forces for the time being but what it was producing was needed.​

dec12440000g1.jpg

Three new modern Tactical bomber squadrons rolled off the production line and were ordered south to Saigon to regroup and prepare for combat. Lt. General Itabana, a ground attack specialist, would command these new aircraft. The vast majority of Japanese Tactical bomber commanders were anti-ship specialists.​





0000 December 12th 1944.
Intelligence Offices. Tokyo, Japan.

Minister Kinjiro was not the only one to receive good news this day. Japan's intelligence Minster also had some reports that were favourable.​

dec12440000g2.jpg

Tokyo Arsenal had concluded their research into an improved Infantry division. Nakajima were handed a contract to improve on the present Interceptor design by adding a rocket to it.​

dec12440000g3.jpg

Ginjiro was informed of the completion of this research and he switched production from supplies to raising a large amount of the new Infantry divisions. He ordered a total of sixty in four batches of fifteen. Japan did not possess enough manpower to fully outfit these divisions at this time, but as it would take several months to complete the production, he concluded that there would be enough by the time it was needed.​





0000 December 12th 1944.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Gulf of Martapan.

Admiral Mikawa had reached Alor Star without incident and he hastily embarked another four divisions from the front line.​

dec12440000g4.jpg

He set sail for Cuttack to reinforce the Japanese beach head in India. Carrier Group C would escort Mikawa north west while the second Transport fleet waited for three more infantry divsions to arrive before following along behind.​





0100 December 12th 1944.
North China Army Headquarters. Jinghong, China.

The British forces in Baoshan had dug in enough to prevent any major damage from the dive bombers that were being employed against them. Higashikuni sent out orders to prevent these troops digging in any further.​

dec12440100g1.jpg

Nine divisions, including Hoshinato's armoured korps, attacked the defenders of Baoshan supported by dive bombers. General Sakai did no take long to dislodge the enemy troops from their mountain. He did not follow them.​





0400 December 12th 1944.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Gulf of Martapan.

Spruance's fleet had moved into the Palau Trench and continued to head south west. It could very well be heading towards the Japanese invasion area which had to be stopped.​

dec12440400g2.jpg

Ozawa had already moved his bombers to Davao in anticipation of the movements of the enemy fleet but, as it would turn out, he would not be able to bomb them in the Celebes Sea. The patrolling interceptor squadron had been attacked by four South African interceptor squadrons and had luckily escaped alive. These enemy aircraft would continue to patrol the region making it far to dangerous to try and conduct bombing runs. Ozawa was ordered to move to Saigon instead where he would close the air gap by patrolling north of Borneo.​

dec12440500g1.jpg

The American Transport fleet that had tried to pass BB Division 2 tried again. It failed again, this time losing three Transport fleets in the process. Koga's Flagship, the Battleship IJN Nagato, would sink one with IJN Fuso accounting for the other two.​

dec12442300g1.jpg

As second fleet was detected shortly afterwards, this time with two Destroyer Divisions. IJN Nagato would sink one and the Heavy Cruiser IJN Suzuya the other. The Heavy Cruiser would receive significant damage in return.

The United States Navy had clearly decided to increase its activity in response to recent Japanese movements.​

Promising in India.

Will increased allied air activity remove the IJN's eyes in the sky and could that lead to disaster? Seems to me that your naval success has often been intelligence lead (which is to be commended!) and loosing that could prove awkward.

I do think this is one of the best demonstrations that I've read of how to use naval power well.

The Americans really are taking things seriously, that new carrier fleet looks like trouble.

I'm glad to see the silly Englanders are taking a beating, hopefully they learn a lesson.

Nice update. ;)

As much as you need infantry, are you sure that you should use all of your MP? Considering your significant MP problems as Germany when you had a land connection, you are going to have much larger MP issue since you cant make use of foreign MP.

Anyway, I am sure that you made the right decision. I would never doubt you after your last game. :cool:

That's quite an American fleet. I hope the IJN can deal with it!

Operation Dilemma looks good, are you planning to isolate the Allies in Burma?

In overall, I think the Japanese Empire has fought well since the start of this AAR. Let's hope that you can keep this up! :)

How is Siam feeling at the moment? Are they feeling uneasy about the British advancing into their country? Or has the Japanese reassured them somehow?

60 division? Now that's what I call overkill. At least considering the Japanese industry. When will the first 15 divisions be ready?

Regarding positioning: Do axis nations always have inferior technology, the wrong doctrines or does the AI simply cheat? It's interesting to note that throughout the whole German campaign enemy positioning was better than yours, though at the end of the campaign you numbers proved decisive.

Now you have the same problem, once again proving that carriers are very vulnerable and closing in on them is easy. Even with your inferior positioning as Germany and Japan you always succeeded in closing the range. Now we see that even light cruiser can do it and do significantly damage your carriers.

Thank god it's only the AI. ;)

Still no summary cn be made on the Indian campaign. Waiting for more action. :)

The summary is easy:

"People of Glorious Japan! Our campaign in India has proven the great success that was predicted by our Glorious Tenno! The enemy defenses have been brushed aside. The dishonourable Allied troops and fleets now cower in fear as our Glorious Army marches on unvanquished.

And don't pay attention to the smoke coming from our carriers. That's just our sailors having a victory pipe.

Glory to the Glory-laden Empire of Glorious Japan!"
