Well, I wouldn't say losing Patton would have been a morale drainer...he DID want to go after the Soviets, after all...

Hmm I guess no one expected that last update although trekaddict did mention Yamamoto being killed in another battle.

al_faris, Nathan Madien, SouthCarolinian, HannibalBarca, Sokraates, rampagingmouse, Roman_legion, Pwn*Star, Jon Young - He will be missed.

thatguy - Remind me to stay away from Midway :)

ColossusCrusher, Maj. von Mauser, I Killed Kenny, Thurak - You can argue the Tech Team both ways I suppose. On the one hand its a team and on the other a team needs a leader. I am not sure if I will use this team again after they complete their current project, we shall see.

robou - Ozawa is a good replacement and has a much easier job to do now.

Admiral Yamamot, Reado - All leaders have the same chance to die in combat, its just very rare for a fleet commander as they see a lot less action.

stnylan - Slightly surprising certainly as it always is with a leaders death. Thank you for the edit :)

String Theory - Yamamoto should not have even been available in this scenario so even for a year thats a huge bonus. If they want to make a man who controlled the most powerful Battlefleet afloat and got it sunk a hero, who am I to argue :) The HQ is Brazilian. It might seem like there is a lot going on all over the place but only the Pacific is any real threat right now. India is nothing more than a waste of Allied forces as they have zero air cover.

opaqueice - Thank you :)

Irenicus - In game terms is nothing more than a minor inconvenience. Ozawa is only one skill point below Yamamoto but he is not a Grand Admiral.

Panzer6 - In some ways but remember Yamamoto shouldn't have even been in command in reality.

Ruodnane - Dieing for the Emperor is the way it supposed to work I guess.

Update to follow ...

A Pacific War
10





1400 November 19th 1945.
Temporary Pacific Headquarters. Saipan.

Ozawa had been in charge of his Naval bomber wing, which was undergoing repairs in Saipan, when he was made aware of his new posting. His predecessor had made considerable progress in reducing the threat of the United States Pacific forces and his task would be to carry on with the work already well underway. BB Division 1 was not due back in Saipan for a few days and he would use his current headquarters until it arrived.​

nov19451400gr1.jpg

His first orders were to Admiral Kato who embarked the two marine divisions on Yap and headed for the Central Carolines.​

nov20450100gr1.jpg

The primary target, dictated by the bombers operating in the area, was the island of Ulithi. A severe thunderstorm over Yap's airfield was preventing most aircraft from using its airbase and the operations would be altered to accomodate the poor weather. The storm had already lasted for almost a week and was showing little sign of abating. Tactical bombers had been moved back to the airfields of the Marianas but the interceptors on Yap had no choice but to use its airfield to cover the area.​

nov20451900gr1.jpg

BB Division 2 provided protection as General Imamura led the marines towards the island of Woleai instead of Ulithi. The weather would break in due course and the planned assaults could commence once this occured.​

nov20452000gr1.jpg

Japanese aerial supremacy was challenged around the Bismarck Achipelago by South African interceptors which were both more numerous and more advanced than Fukui's half wing. Damage was severe but he managed to withdraw without losing a squadron. The appearance of more modern enemy interceptors would require some counter but most of Japan's interceptors were already in the Pacific. Upgrades may need to be brought forwards for these aircraft.​

nov21450600gr1.jpg

BB Division 3 had been switched with Carrier Group C as it had a longer range. Nomura would initially escort 8. Kaigun to Wake Island where they would await an intelligence report on Attu Island before proceeding.​

nov22450000gr1.jpg

Ozawa moved his headquarters aboard IJN Yamashiro after its return to Saipan. It sailed almost immediately after 3. Kaigun had embarked two divisions from Saipan's garrison. Both fleets headed back to the Central Marshalls where an invasion of Kwajalein was planned.​

0900 November 22nd 1945.
North China Army Headquarters. Lanzhou, China.

The bombers had done their job as efficiently as ever and the Allied presence in India and Persia had been greatly reduced as a result.​

nov22450900gr1.jpg

The marine division that had captured Multan had been destroyed along with any further reinforcements heading towards Karachi from Persia. Only five enemy divisions now occupied Karachi and they were now outnumbered by Japanese forces.​





0200 November 23rd 1945.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, In Transit.

Despite the damage to IJN Yamashiro it remained the Flagship of BB Division 1 for the time being and it would be repaired as soon as possible. Current operations required its presence as it steamed towards Kwajalein.​

nov23450200gr1.jpg

Imamura and Banzai captured Woleai in the early hours of November 23rd but would not remain on the island for long. The weather had cleared up and the intial plans could now be put into force.

The Americans were not done trying to conduct their own offensive operations and they launched an invasion of their own.​

nov23451700gr1.jpg

Merauke province in New Guinea changed hands once again as an infantry division was landed. Japanese forces were concentrated around the Carolines and this invasion had not been picked up any patrols. Lt. General Nakajima was ordered to Hollandia from the Celebes to contain this latest American threat.​

nov23452100gr1.jpg

Kuribayashi had occupied Kendari and now the Celebes was back under total Japanese control. He would move back to Palu to prevent another invasion of that province that could result in the weaker single Japanese divisions being captured if they were spread further afield.​

nov23452100gr2.jpg

Tsukahara had moved his Tactical bomber wing to Eniwetok where it began to reduce the organisation of the garrison division defending Kwajalein.​

nov24450200gr1.jpg

Japanese marines began the amphibious assault of Ulithi at 0200 hours on November 24th. The garrison had already been weakened by bombers who would return to assist shortly. Naval Gunfire Support would also begin as BB Division 2 opened fire with its large guns. The battle would be over before nightfall with Japanese forces victorious.​

nov24450400gr1.jpg

The arrival of Nagumo and his two Submarine Flotillas off Attu Island provided intelligence required by Ozawa. The island was lightly defended but was already covered in snow as winter had set in in the north. An invasion would be far less likely to succeed as a result but Ozawa would attempt it anyway before any reinforcements could arrive to bolster the defences.​

nov24450600gr1.jpg

An American mechanised division had been observed being loaded in Truk, and much to Ozawa's surprise, had headed towards the Central Carolines. Carrier Group C had also moved into this area for added protection but their arrival turned out to be detrimental to operations. The bad weather would allow the Transport fleet to drop the divison off in Wolelai and reinforce the armoured division already present. Carrier Group C was ordered east to cover Truk to prevent a similar occurance.

Whilst this move would hinder operations it also provided Ozawa with valuable information. The Allies were prepared to weaken Truk's defences to try and keep a foothold in the Central Carolines. This information could prove very useful in the future when the time came to try and capture the Allies only remaining airbase in the Carolines.​

Excellent, this is island hopping at its best. Si the AI is prepared to ship troops from Truk to assist the defense of some tiny island most people don't even know exists. Let's just hope that they won't reinforce Truk with divisions from the continent.

are you getting any new forces organised? I think you may have moved too fast and are getting spread too thin unless you have about nine or so more infantry divisions on the way. Just my personal opinion. Would it be possible to see what your are currently contructing in the next monthly update?

Sokraates - I may have to bait the Allies a little to make them reduce Truk's defence a little. The AI will probably fall for just about any small trick I come up with :)

Murmurandus - I like island hopping, what can I say :)

robou - Thank you. Truk and Admiralty Island seem to be a problem as both are far too well garrisoned right now. I might have to move south of them into the Solomons first.

stnylan - Slowly seems to work. With the Soviets not contemplating an invasion I probably have at least until April '46 to have fun in the Pacific. Maybe they will attack when the snow melts again.

genbrad - I am always short of troops. The invasions of Wake, Eniwetok and Kwajalein took 6 of my reserves from Fukuoka and two of the garrison from Saipan. The other three divisions from Fukuoka are heading towards Attu. Three divisions from the Philippines and my marines are in the Carolines which leaves me precious little else. I can still strip Guam and Palau of a total of 4 divisions but any more will need to come from elsewhere and it will leave these islands a little vunerable. The next place to get stripped of troops is going to be southern Asia as it is very unlikely that an Allied invasion will happen there now. I will put my production in the monthly update.

A Pacific War

1900 November 24th 1945.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, In transit.

Ozawa continued to increase the pressure in the Carolines with a second invasion towards an undefended island.​

nov24451900gr1.jpg

The marines were already coming ashore on Ulithi when three infantry divisions, that used to be based in the Philippines, began a second invasion towards Ulul. BB Division 2 continued to protect both Transport fleets.​

nov24451900gr2.jpg

The American division that had landed in Merauke attacked Wada's infantry division in Kerema. His troops were mid way through their march into the mountains of New Guinea and were already tired, leaving Wada no choice but to withdraw towards Port Moresby, despite the presence of Dive bombers to assist him.​

nov25452200gr1.jpg

The Sam Houston Flotilla had managed to unload its cargo onto Wolelai but it would not survive the return journey as IJN Fuso sent it to the bottom of the Central Carolines.​

nov26450300gr1.jpg

Lt. General Adachi, who had been the garrison commander for Saipan, led the troops ashore as Japanese forces began the invasion of Kwajalein. The defending garrison division had already been softened up by bombing and would surrender after a brief struggle. The return of the Tactical bombers and shore bombardment from BB Division 1 was too much for the defenders to contend with.

Vice Admiral Godo, commander of Carrier Group D repairing in Osaka, was ordered to put to sea without his Carriers to deal with a threat close to the Japanese mainland.​

nov26450500gr1.jpg

A Canadian fleet was way off course and moving along the coast when it ran into Godo and the repairing Battleships. IJN Musashi's new gunnery officer targetted the Light Cruiser HMCS Ontario while IJN Nagato sank the Transport Flotilla.​

nov26452100gr1.jpg

The thunderstorms had abated in the Carolines and clear weather greeted the dawn on November 26th. Kondo led the Tactical bombers towards the two divisions on Wolelai island where they tried to reduce the enemy organisation to allow an invasion.​

nov27450900gr1.jpg

The Americans landed a second division in Merauke on the 27th as the first was close to destruction. The Dive bombers would continue to try and destroy both divisions without support for the time being.​

Two more American Transport Divisions attempted to transit the Central Carolines at 1300 on November 27th. Neither of them would survive the trip as the Heavy Cruiser IJN Ashigara and the Battleship IJN Fuso opened fire.​

nov27451300gr2.jpg

BB Division 3 and 8. Kaigun had rebased to Wake Island without incident and were ordered to set sail north towards the lightly defended Attu Island. Three infantry divisions were on board 8. Kaigun's Transport ships.​

nov27452200gr1.jpg

General Imamura took advantage of the current lack of supply for the American divisions defending Wolelai when he began his invasion at 2200 hours on November 27th. Despite assistance from eight Tactical bomber squadrons and the guns of BB Division 2 Imamura would fail to budge the defenders. A different approach would be needed for this island as it was clear a direct assault would not succeed.​

nov28451600gr1.jpg

More reinforcements had arrived for the Americans in New Guinea. Additional bombers were summoned from India where the Tactical bombers were no longer required. The addition of five modern Tactical bombers should prevent any breakout by the American forces on the island.​

nov28451700gr1.jpg

At 1700 hours on November 28th Japanese troops re-occupied Kwajalein island. Lt. General Adachi would remain here to defend the island that Japan had held at the beginning of the War. The Americans now had only two airbases in the northern Pacific. These were on Attu Island and Pearl Harbour.​

nov30450600gr1.jpg

Lt. General Ito captured the island of Pulusuk in the Central Carolines in the early hours of November 30th. Only one island remained under enemy control in this small area of the Pacific but it was defended by armoured forces. There had been no sign of additional troops movements by the Allies which would weaken Truk.​

nov30452100gr1.jpg

The South African interceptors had moved further south where they attacked the second half wing of Japanese interceptors that were patrolling east of New Guinea. The results would be the same with large Japanese losses but both squadrons would survive. This area was now off limits to Japanese aircraft until upgraded Interceptors were available. The upgrades would begin earlier than planned to counter this renewed threat.​

Interesting to see the south african interceptors moving south. It's probably because of the abundance of black people on the south pacific islands, which the south Africans like to use as training targets :rofl: (tasteless I know but I couldn't pass up the oppertunity).

So while you whittle them down, the US still has enough transports to mount sporadic amphibious attacks. I guess, once they are satisfied with the number of carriers, they will mass produce transports ... so you are left with no choice but to attack the US mainland. All for peace's sake, of course. ;)

P.S.: Didn't you find any secret documents yet? I'm pretty sure the US left some behind on one of those islands.

Ah, these damn South Africans again! Interesting to see that they have such modern fighters.

What's you plan with those armoured units? Attack them from a dozen different angles? Dive bombing won't help much, will it, as they are firmly dug in?

I see the Americans are using the 'stack' strategy again. That could get to be a real pain if they continue to do so, though on the plus side if they do overstack New Guinea at least those troops won't be causing problems elsewhere.
