Astonishing fightback. The question is when the Bear will decide to take a swipe at Manchuria and Korea....and how the hell you're going to hold it off.

Possibly forts along the Yalu? And preparing a somewhat decent Kwantung Army (at least compared to the one that faced the Soviets IRL).......

What bothers me as well is the nasty habit of AI USA to drop 40+divisions amphibious assaults in Korea or Manchuria.

On the other hand, that may not work so well against a non-AI Japan... :D

Agreed. Not with all those Japanese planes watching half the Pacific and finding anything :)

IJN Yamashiro sank the Queen Elizabeth Flotilla.

(Long time listener, first-time caller).

As well as shortages of vital supplies of tea due to the collapse of China (and soon India), the poor Brits must suffer the outrage of loosing a great deal of their famous ocean liners and troop ships to the Japanese.

A great aar, as ever. I commend your skills and wish you continued success.

Oh yes, they must be suffering greatly. For what is English culture without tea? :)

TimEmm - Well spotted. That is IJN Suzuya that got damaged a while back. She might see a port soon once I have spare capacity to begin repairs again.

Maj. von Mauser, Murmurandus - Thank you. They put up a mighty fight apparently. Happy birthday Murmurandus by the way ;)

Nathan Madien - I might need mountaineers for that and I believe I actually don't have any of them.

Deus, Mangudai - As long as they have tea they fear nothing.

thatguy - Thank you :) Lurking is allowed in this AAR :D

Striker475, Winner - The Bear will do what the Bear does I expect. Send several million men against its foe and hope that that will do the trick. There will be an Army of sorts to face them. How good it is depends on how long they wait before attacking.

UncleAlias, Thurak - I think I have managed to convince the Americans that trying to reach Asia with Transport ships is not a good idea. Of course this might not stop them trying.

Ruodnane - Thank you and welcome to both the forums and this AAR :) The ocean liners are a crippling blow I would think.

Update to follow ...

Operation Dilemma
8





0200 January 11th 1945.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Gulf of Martapan.

The renewed spotting missions in the Celebes Sea did not take long to find enemy shipping.​

jan11450200gr1.jpg

What looked to be the remains of Admiral Fletcher's fleet was transitting the area after apparently coming from the west. The discovery of the fleet did not concern Yamamoto but the fact that it had come from the west was a larger problem. More than just this fleet could have used the air gap to penetrate the defences. Ozawa was informed of the fleets whereabouts, and as long as no better target showed up, he would pay the fleet a visit the next morning.​

jan11450400gr1.jpg

A British Strategic bomber wing had been bombing the area around Calcutta for a few days and Fukui had been rebased to try and halt the attacks. The standard procedure to not attack these aircraft was in place for a reason and Fukui got much the worse of the combat.​

jan11450700gr1.jpg

A higher priority target would see the Naval bombers operating in the Mariana Trench as two more enemy Transport Flotillas were spotted off Saipan. The Submarines would force them to leave but they could hopefully be destroyed by bombers before they could escape the area.​

jan11450700gr2.jpg

The single Siamese Tactical bomber squadron, a much older aircraft type, was carrying out patrols around mainland Japan and had spotted two American Destroyer Divisions in Tokyo Bay.

Admiral Nomura was ordered after them and this time he managed to sink both without losing any of his own ships. The two massive Battleships, IJN Yamato and IJN Musashi, would sink one each.​

jan11450900gr1.jpg

Other news was not so good. Carrier Group C had found three enemy Transport fleets but had failed to sink any of them. Nagano went after them initially but other events would alter his course shortly.​

jan11450900gr2.jpg

BB Division 2 had caught the previous fleet that they had encountered in the Mentawi Strait. This time none would escape. Koga's Flagship, IJN Nagato, would claim all three American Divisions.

With the Transport fleet that had evaded Carrier Group C heading into Koga's patrol area he would go after it instead of Nagano.​

jan11451200gr1.jpg

Carrier Group C headed west instead, to try and catch another American Transport division that was heading north west.​





0000 January 12th 1945.
Diplomatic Offices. Tokyo, Japan.

A major change had occurred on the World stage that would have a direct bearing on the current War that had most of the World fighting Japan.​

jan12450000gr1.jpg

The American President Roosevelt had died and had been replaced by Truman. The odds of trying to deal with the new enemy Head of State were remote as he was considered to be more hard line by Mamoru. He passed the news on to the rest of the Cabinet.​





0000 January 12th 1945.
North China Army Headquarters. JInghong, China.

Higashikuni was satisfied with current progress in both India and Burma with a slow but steady build up of enemy troops in India being his only real concern for the time being. The British had been prevented from reinforcing Burma so far and Yamamoto was confident this would continue to be the case.​

jan12450000gr2.jpg

There were still some enemy troop movements that were not being detected as two more divisions arrived to try and defend Baoshan province. They had arrived without their commander again and the Dive bombers were already in the area. The results were fairly swift this time as the British troops retreated with the bombers in hot pursuit.​

0800 January 12th 1945.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Gulf of Martpan.

The latest spotting report from aircraft in the Mariana trench was not good news. The fleet that had been detected could easily support an invasion and protect the Transport ships if they arrived.​

jan12450800gr1.jpg

Suekuni's Submarine fleet prudently headed directly for the safety of Saipan as the message was passed to all ships an aircraft in the area of the new enemy fleets arrival.​

jan12450800gr2.jpg

Mj. General Genda was already in the area with his Naval bomber wing and it did not take long for Ozawa and four interceptor squadrons to arrive to assist. Admiral Spruance had brought the damaged Carrier, USS Bon Homme Richard, and his six remaining Battleships into hostile waters. There were no Transport fleets sighted so far but Spruance was showing no inclination to leave the North Mariana Trench so far.​

jan12451800gr1.jpg

BB Division 2 had found the fleeing American Transport fleet in the West Java Trench. His gun ships had a better time of sinking these ships than the Carriers as two were sunk by the Heavy Cruiser IJN Suzuya and the Battleship IJN Nagato. The third would escape for the time being.​

jan13450100gr1.jpg

By 0100 hours on January 13th the most modern known American Carrier had sunk. The bombers had deliberately targetted the USS Bon Homme Richard and now switched their attention to the rest of Spruance's fleet.​





2200 January 12th 1945.
North China Army Headquarters. Jinghong, China.

Another British attack had started in India. They seemed to be determined to try and force Japanese troops out of Ranchi.​

jan12452200gr2.jpg

This time Nishihara would ask for assistance as the three enemy divisions were in slightly better condition and did pose slightly more of a threat. Higashikuni's response to the Allied aggression arrived within two hours.​

jan13450200gr1.jpg

Attacks were launched against both enemy forces advancing towards Ranchi with three Japanese divisions, led by General Kawabe, attacking Jabalpur with support from the Tactical bomber wings.

General Ueda himself led the other attack towards Lucknow in the north. All of the attacks ended within two hours with Ranchi holding in place. Kawabe called off his attack as soon as the British halted theirs and Ueda forced the enemy troops out of Lucknow but did not follow.

The various Headquarters and Flagships were receiving large amounts of combat reports all over the Pacific as well as in Asia. The reports were mostly standard with bombing reports and enemy fleet sightings most prevalent.

Air General Kondo had managed to convince Ichimaru that it was his turn to lead the bombers in India today.​

jan13450400gr1.jpg

He was targetting the British militia division in Jabalpur for the time being. Targets were becoming slightly less common in Burma and the Tactical bombers would spend a few days thinning out the British forces in India to prevent further attacks in the region.​





0700 January 13th 1945.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Gulf of Martapan.

The additional aircraft that Yamamoto had requested to bolster the defences on the Marianas had arrived almost immediately. The extra defensive ground forces took longer to arrive.​

jan13450700gr1.jpg

Admiral Mikawa had been given the task of delivering three infantry divisions to the islands and he had arrived at his first port of call. Palau saw its defences increase by 33% with Mikawa still needing to reach both Guam and Saipan to complete his current mission. There was the small matter of a large American fleet parked in the North Mariana Trench that could stop his progress.​

jan13450900gr1.jpg

The Naval bombers and interceptors had returned to try and sink more of Spruance's fleet with the USS Indiana now his flagship. He still showed no sign of wishing to vacate the area and the Japanese aircraft were tiring, making it more dificult to inflict large amounts of damage to the enemy Battleships.​

jan13451100gr1.jpg

Carrier Group C had encountered a British Submarine Flotilla in the Nine Degree Channel which was promptly sunk by aircraft from IJN Zuikaku. The Submarines had escaped an earlier encounter with Nagano and his Carriers. There was no sign of the Transport fleet that Carrier Group C was hunting for the moment.​

FDR dies. Hmm, In my games he has never died while in office. However a nice little naval update.

Edit: You sneaky you, updating while I reply. :D

The other half was good too. How big is the difference of the figthing spirit of the burma based british forces compared to the India based? :)

It looks like the modern allied carriers are coming online. Maybe you should research the next level of naval bomber and maybe build a few more squadrons?

From the last screenshot I see that operation (or rather "sub-operation") Paint-South-India-Yellow" is progressing well.

How does the AI chose a flagship? I always thought the most modern ship would be the flagship but now I see that the USS Indiana (BBIV) is flagship instead of a BBV.

Apart from that, it's a nice update. Now what's the status on the proposed landings in Burma?

I'd love to see a status report of the Indian theatre, if you wouldn't mind. Since you've dealt so much damage with the amphibious assault.

Also, my money's on the Bear launching Operation April Storm.

Strategic bombers III with escorts ('43) against Interceptors IV ('40) - sounds ok to me that the strats win.

Are you still not repairing anything? In one of the last updates you mentioned that. Not even your damaged big ships (especially the BB-VII's) that take ages to regain full strength? I mean - those BB's one month earlier back in action maybe worth 2/3 days more dissent reducing.

A major change had occurred on the World stage that would have a direct bearing on the current War that had most of the World fighting Japan.​

The American President Roosevelt had died and had been replaced by Truman. The odds of trying to deal with the new enemy Head of State were remote as he was considered to be more hard line by Mamoru. He passed the news on to the rest of the Cabinet.​

January 20th, 1945: "I only wish Roosevelt had lived to witness this day. As such, I am now the commander-in-chief. We shall continue our policy of engaging the Japanese navy in her waters and we shall continue our policy of throwing our transports at the Japanese navy. We shall continue on our course until we completely wear out the Japanese navy's ability to make war. After all, they can only sink so many ships and transports before reaching the breaking point."
