Nathan Madien - Perth will be the delay in Australia. The Solomons are easy enough to take but the New Hebreides, New Zealand and Fiji might be delayed because of Australia. All of these places fall under Operation Obsolete not just Australia.

intruder alert - I would have to DoW the Soviets to interfere with their redeployments and I am still a few months away from having my aircraft back from the Pacific.

robou - The Marshalls are a problem certainly but I have some plans to deal with this area :)

I Killed Kenny - Pearl would be the best place for them to defend but they are still trying to retake the Marshalls. I only have 2 Subs stopping them right now.

HannibalBarca - I gain the use of over 100 Japanese divisions which are stuck there defending against a force 5 or 6 times their number which will attack at some point. I am lucky they didn't attack in 1945. The Soviet Union also has more than enough resources for me to never have to worry about energy again.

Juan_de_Marco - No event that I can find for that to happen, I would accept if offered it though. Right now the Bear is the biggest threat and it is growing bolder by the day.

Operation Obsolete

8





0800 March 7th 1946.
BB Divsion 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Ysabel Channel.

Ozawa was informed of the arrival of CA Division 1 in the St. George's Channel. Admiral Takasu would relieve Carrier Group D of its defensive responsibilities.​

mar7460800gr1.jpg

Godo headed for Rabaul to conduct some minor repairs and to read over the details of Operation Mystery. Carrier Group D was going to be part of the force involved in this risky undertaking.​

mar8460400gr1.jpg

BB Division 3 escorted 3. Kaigun down the Australian coast towards Perth. The Tactical bombers were currently trying to destroy the defending division but would alter target before they caused much damage. No invasion could be attempted whilst the province was defended and it could take days for the bombers to return.​

mar8462100gr1.jpg

In contrast southern Australia was progressing very well. The abscence of enemy troops helped of course. Akashika was already moving towards Melbourne in his slow moving landing craft with Carrier Group C keeping a watchful eye on proceedings as they blockaded Tasmania where an enemy fleet was holed up.​

mar8462200gr1.jpg

The Solomons became totally Japanese controlled at 2200 hours on March 8th as the two marine divisions completed their latest invasions. The Bismarck Archipelago was their next target but this area was still being reduced by aircraft. They would invade when possible and headed north in preparation.​

mar10460300gr1.jpg

Rather than clear Perth the bombers had moved north to destroy the enemy division in Carnarvon. Had they just destroyed the one in Perth there would have been no need of further bloodshed in the north.​

mar10460400gr1.jpg

With no targets left on the ground in southern Australia the Tactical bombers in the area decided to visit Tasmania and its port facilities. Two Destroyer Flotillas and five Transport Flotillas would litter the bottom of the harbour after a few days of bombing. Carrier Group C ensured that they stayed put for the bombers.​

mar10460900gr1.jpg

By 0900 hours on March 10th the defences of Admiralty Island had become as weak as they could be. Nakajima led the Dive bombers on their latest raid which would target the organisation of the single division left on the island. Ozawa ordered the marines to head to the area under the protection of his own Battlefleet, BB Division 1.​

mar10462300gr1.jpg

At 2300 hours on March 10th both Melbourne and Sydney were captured by Japanese forces. Only Perth remained to be seized to force an Australian surrender. Carrier Group C would head north shortly to join Carrier Group D in Rabaul.​

mar11462100gr1.jpg

The battle for admiralty Island began at 2100 hours on March 11th. Support from Dive bombers and BB Division 1 would make it a very short fight with another enemy division being captured by Japanese marines, led by General Imamura.

The Allies seemed to be having a communication problem. The United States Navy had clearly not informed their Canadian ally that the waters around the Marshalls was not a safe place to be.​

mar12462200gr1.jpg

The Battleship HMCS Alberta would settle on the bottom of the Magellan Rise after a few hours of bombing from Ichimaru and Genda's Naval bombers.​

The bombers in western Australia had decided that Perth would be the last place they would visit. Two infantry divisions in Broome tried to speed up the process by forcing the Australian division to retreat from Goldsworthy.​

mar14460000gr1.jpg

In the south the Tactical bombers had finished off the Australian fleet in Tasmania and hunted down the only other prey in the area. The single division in Port Lincoln would not make it to Adelaide.​





0000 March 14th 1946.
Intelligence Offices. Tokyo, Japan.

Yamamoto's research team had finally finished its project. Unrestricted Submarine Warfare would help Japanese Submarines a little in the Pacific. This research team was no longer available as its researchers were moved to other teams.​

mar14460000gr2.jpg

Sumimoto would be ordered to conduct research into Advanced Agricultural Production to try and improve Japanese recruitment.​





0300 March 14th 1946.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Ysabel Channel.

Imamura and Banzai captured Admiralty Island at 0300 hours on March 14th. They would leave as soon as their Transports arrived in the port and head for Rabaul.​

mar14460300gr1.jpg

Ozawa would use Admiralty Island to conduct further repairs on his fleet with the occasional voyage into the Ysabel Channel to shoot any enemy troops trying to cross the strait from New Ireland.​





0000 March 15th 1946.
Industry Offices. Tokyo, Japan.

Ginjiro did not have to monitor much production as Japan had little manpower to use for this purpose.​

mar15460000gr1.jpg

Three new Dive bombers squadrons had been completed and flew to Urmuqi in north western China to organise themselves.​





2100 March 15th 1946.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Admiralty Island.

Ozawa was pleased with progress in most areas although Australia was causing a delay with further operations to the east. Operation Obsolete also required the capture of all southern Pacific airbases and ports which included New Zealand. The troops in Australia were supposed to conduct that part of the operation.

His thoughts turned to the latest report that had arrived from the Marshall Islands. Mj. General Kusaka, flying a routine naval patrol in the area, had encountered an enemy fleet that could cause serious harm to all current operations.​

mar15462100gr1.jpg

The most modern fleet at sea, commanded by Admiral English, was heading south through the Marshalls chain. Four extremely modern Aircraft Carriers were in the fleet which also included two Light Carriers for air defence. Even Japanese Naval bombers would not enjoy attacking this fleet but that would be what they were ordered to do. According to intelligence reports this fleet contained half of the United States Navy's current Carriers.​

mar16460600gr1.jpg

Close Air Support aircraft did not worry about Aircraft Carriers very much, they were far more concerned with bombing enemy troops. The armoured division in New Ireland had been fooled into thinking it could cross the strait towards Admiralty Island. The Dive bombers were making it pay.​

mar16462200gr1.jpg

Ichimaru and Genda had spent a few hours bombing English and his Carriers the previous evening and had returned to hunt them at dawn. USS Oriskany would be sunk in the Magellan Rise as damage mounted for the bombers. The fleet was still heading south and showed no signs of changing course despite the damage it was receiving.​

mar17462100gr1.jpg

By dawn on the 17th English had moved into the Southwest Marshalls where only Genda would find him. One of his squadrons was already badly damaged but they attacked nonetheless trying to inflict as much damage as possible in the hope that this fleet would turn around. Ozawa had no intention of engaging it unless he absolutely had to. English had altered course towards Truk and the East Carolines where he arrived in the early hours of March 18th. Trying to catch this fleet with a Japanese one capable of sinking it would not be easy as it was almost twice as fast as the two older Japanese Carrier fleets.

The two Submarine Flotillas that had been guarding the East Carolines had sprinted for port as soon as it was clear this enemy fleet was heading their way. They made it safely as Ozawa also ordered BB Division 1 into the Admiralty Islands to be safe.

Reports indicated that the carriers had turned north upon entering the Carolines which was welcome news for Ozawa. The Naval bombers would hunt them again the next day in the hope of inflicting yet more damage. Operations to the south could continue as long as English continued to head north. He wouldn't be quite so accomodating.​

mar18461000gr1.jpg

Another delay in western Australia would add to the already sizable lack of progress. A large thunderstorm had appeared over Wyndham which prevented all sixteen Japanese Tactical bombers taking off. Once the weather improved it was hoped that the entire force could speed things up a little and pick the correct target to bomb. Time was not on Ozawa's side as the presence of a large enemy Carrier Task Force already showed. The Americans were responding to the latest offensive moves and they had another fleet as large as this one somewhere. He was under no illusion that Carrier Groups C and D could seriously damage these more modern Carriers without losses.

The Imperial Japanese Navy was showing severe signs of old age and even the Battleships would not wish to fight the more modern enemy fleets, even on their own terms. Research was far behind in this particular specialty and it could take years to even update the ship designs let alone build them.​

I am more worried about Remble's navy. Unfortunately, he doesn't have years to build up a modern navy while his enemies are one step ahead.

Cleaning up the Solomans is nice. Finishing off Australia will be better, and just hope that those defenders in New Ireland are not too stubborn.

thatguy - Yes but I need to research the upgrades first. They are at the highest level Japan knows right now.

Nathan Madien - The IJN is not as powerful as it might seem certainly. The ships are fast becoming too old to be of much use in any confrontation but they can still protect the rear lines from enemy invasions.

robou - Fortuantely the Americans don't have too much they can throw at me right now which should mean I can continue operations.

stnylan - I feel kind of bad about how I am clearing New Ireland as it is sort of gamey. Allowing troops to move just to bomb them is not exactly playing fair and I could have done the same to Truk and Ngulu but chose not to.

Operation Obsolete

9





1000 March 18th 1946.
8 Hoheishidan, Gulja Province, Xinjiang, China.

Mj. General Yano, commander of 8 Hoheishidan, had just taken over the responsibility of patrolling the border between China and the Soviet Union from Lt. General Cho, who commanded 25 Hoheishidan.

Yano was a keen young officer who took his duties very seriously and he always made sure that the patrols were thorough. He routinely joined such patrols to ensure they did their job effectively. Today he had decided to join the patrol that would allow an overview of the hills and mountains all around Gulja province.

The border had been deserted on the Soviet side for many months with nothing but a routine patrol report expected to be filed. Yano would not be the first to notice anything unusual, that honour would go to an eagle eyed lookout called Yong.

"There is something moving out there." was all Yong said in the beginning.

"Where?" replied his patrol leader Sergeant Sumana.

"Just over that rise to the north east."

Yano had fairly good eyesight but he could not make anything out so he reached for his field glasses. The peace and quiet that had filled the valleys to the west was about to be shattered.

Several seconds after looking more in depth at the area in question Yano finally began to see what Yong had been seeing. Troops were flooding into the hills on the Soviet side of the border.

"Keep an eye on them Sergeant I need to head back to headquarters and make a report." he told Sumana.

"We will do that sir." was the reply.

Several hours later Yano was explaining what he had seen to the commander of the defences of Gulja, Lt. General Shigeta. His report would be forwarded to North China Army Headquarters where Field Marshall Higashikuni would take such an interest in it that the young Mj. General was soon on an aircraft bound for Lanzhou province where he would be asked more details by the commander of the North China Army.

Higashikuni himself would accompany Yano back to Gulja as he wished to see with his own eyes what was being reported. It would take a full week for Yano to return to Gulja. A lot would have changed since the first sighting of Soviet troops on the border.​





0000 March 19th 1946.
BB Division 1 Flagship. IJN Yamashiro, Admiralty Island.

The concerns of Admiral Ozawa were different to those of Higashikuni. The forces he was commanding were at War with those facing them and the area they were operating in was considerably larger. Intelligence played a large part in operations in the Pacific and the Japanese were winning this silent War.​

mar19460000gr1.jpg

Admiral English had moved north into the South Magellan Seamounts and was picked up by Ichimaru and his bombers. They would inflict a little more damage to the enemy fleet but what concerned Ozawa more was the change in heading of English. He had turned back south clearly looking for an encounter with the Imperial Japanese Navy. Ozawa would do his best to oblige now that he had the forces he needed in the right place.​

mar19460800gr1.jpg

Carrier Group C had joined Carrier Group D in Rabaul and they set sail together, plotting a course north towards the Ysabel Channel where they would hope to meet with the three enemy Carriers. Ozawa was prepared to allow his eight Carriers the chance to sink their American counterparts.​

mar19462300gr1.jpg

As March 19th drew to a close the Dive bombers harassing the defenders of New Ireland had managed to remove the armoured division and would change target to the motorised division that had also decided to try and cross the strait towards Admiralty Island.​

mar20460300gr1.jpg

By 0300 hours on march 20th the thunderstorm had passed by Wyndham allowing the sixteen Tactical bomber squadrons to take to the air once more. They had no choice but to head for Perth now which had seen a second division arrive to reinforce the province. There would only be one left by the time the bombers returned to Wyndham to refuel and await the next dawn.​

mar20460900gr1.jpg

English's fleet was proving to be far to fast for the Japanese Carriers to catch up with, having already passed through the Ysabal Channel and entered the Dampier Strait. Interceptors had found it at 0900 hours on March 20th and both Japanese Carrier fleets altered course to the south west to try and intercept.

The American Carriers could not be allowed to head south as most of the infantry in Rabaul had been embarked on to Transport fleets which were heading south towards the New Hebreides. The two marine divisions had been left behind as they were to be used to assault New Ireland once the defences had been further reduced.​

mar20461100gr1.jpg

Two hours later and English had altered course again, this time north east towards the Ysabel Channel. Neither Japanese Carrier fleet had any chance of catching him. He had been forced to move away from the Transport fleets which was all well and good. The next dawn would see Japanese Dive bombers join in the search for English and his fleet.​

Let's hope you can beat the English!!

If I were you I'd try to lure the CV's to a stop, by baiting them with some subs or something, that way you can catch up and engage them.

You'd have to assemble you whole navy to counter this threat, but I think it is about time that you came out of your cave and obliged the Americans to a battle on their own terms. The Imperial Navy I have read about wasn't one to shy away from battle.

Three invasions began in the New Hebreides at 1400 hours on March 20th with Espiritu Santo the primary target. All of the islands would need to be captured to try and prevent any easy reinforcing by the Allies. Just over two days would be required for the troops to capture these initial islands.​

mar20462100gr1.jpg

2100 hours saw several Dive bombers make contact with Admiral English and inflict some more minor damage to his fleet. He would leave the Ysabel Channel to the north before the remaining bombers could arrive to assist. The USS Enterprise was beginning to show signs of extensive damage from the multitude of minor air attacks.​

mar21460700gr1.jpg

Admiral Kato ordered the troops on his Transports to board their landing craft at 0700 hours on March 21st. The Tactical bombers had finally cleared the defences of Perth which would allow an invasion.​

mar21460700gr2.jpg

All sixteen bomber squadrons were ordered to rebase to Guadalcanal to support operations around the New Hebreides and further south. Ozawa had unwittingly ordered these bombers to exactly the right place at exactly the right time although he did not know it as he issued the orders.​

mar21461300gr1.jpg

Having failed to encounter English both Japanese Carrier Groups sailed for Truk where they could be ready at a moments notice should the American Admiral alter course back towards the Carolines.​

mar21462000gr1.jpg

Two Australian Destroyer Flotillas encountered the Japanese invasion force in the Central South Solomon Trench. BB Division 2 was providing protection and easily stopped the enemy ships from causing any damage. The Battlecruiser IJN Haruna would sink one and IJN Fuso the other. It soon became clear that the enemy ships had managed to report the presence of a Japanese invasion fleet in the New Hebreides.​

mar21462200gr1.jpg

English had been heading away from the area, presumably to a friendly port for repairs. He altered course to due south two hours after the Australian Destroyers had found the Japanese fleets in the South Central Solomon Trench.​

mar22460600gr1.jpg

Ozawa checked his watch at 0600 hours on March 22nd. There were still fifteen hours needed for Japanese troops to capture the islands in the New Hebreides and another five or six hours would be required for the fleets to enter the relative safety of the harbours of those islands. The American Carriers were a fairly long way away but they moved a lot faster than Ozawa liked.​

mar22460300gr1.jpg

The delay in capturing Perth had allowed another Australian division to materialise even though it was out of supply due to the recent captures of the Australian supply depot. Kitajima would hold off this attack after a few hours of fighting but was unlikely to hold if more enemy troops were to show up.​

mar22460600gr2.jpg

The placing of all sixteen Tactical bomber squadrons in Guadalcanal was a stroke of luck for Ozawa. English would have to sail straight through them to reach the Transport ships to the south. The Carrier USS Enterprise would not survive the first encounter with them in the Northwest Gilberts. Night would stop the bombers from causing any more damage but they would be back out at dawn to try and prevent a disaster, which could occur if English reached the Japanese invasion forces.

The American Admiral did not alter course and was clearly determined to stop the invasions. BB Division 2 was no real match for two modern American Carriers if the battle occured during the day and in good weather. For once there were no storms in this area of the Pacific much to Ozawa's annoyance.​

mar22461700gr1.jpg

One of the smaller CA Divisions encountered a South African Transport fleet trying to land troops on one of the undefended islands in the Solomons chain. This was why these fleets were here and they managed to chase the invaders away, only causing minor damage on this occasion. The Allies appeared to be fixed in their thinking with regards to retaking islands they had lost as they had proved time and again with their repeated attempts on Saipan and the other islands in the Marianas.​

Oh I tried to fight them, they are just too quick. Those Carriers would slaughter my Subs. About the only thing I have been able to sink enemy Subs with is my Carriers and these are a lot better than mine are :)

Those invasions seem alright now. Hopefully they are. Clearing up the south Pacific is always a bit of a pain in my experience, but necessary.

I see I didn't wait for the whole update.

I was only saying use you subs to distract English so he stops, enabling you to catch up. If the subs sunk anything that would just be a bonus.

I see you bombers are doing there thing. I just miss all the old naval action from you last AAR. :)

Very nice update, with high intensity.
Large AI fleets are as scary as was the flying Dutch for sailors...

By the way, on a screenshoot where you are bombing CV, one NAV is missing. Is it under repair or destroyed?

event = {

country = JAP

you need a whole bunch of islands and most of the california coast, and then it fires randomly a USA surrenders, event id 68, USA leaves the allies and you make a temporary peace with them (similar to bitter peace, really), in return you get almost all the pacific islands and i think it also forces the USA to give up California, Texas and CSA as nations.

anyway, thinning the allies this way seems fair. not that you have to do it, mind, just bumping up a suggestion...

the event is in the normal hoi2.txt in the event folder, and you can look it up easily by CTRL-F-ing "Attu" since that island only appears in this event.

Why did you research Unrestricted Submarine Warfare? I usually only research that part of the Base Strike path if there is nothing else to research. Subs are just not powerful enough, with or without doctrines. Yamamoto could have researched one of the more important carrier parts of the doctrine tree.

That a serious problem fleet you have found there, commanded by English. Lucky there aren't any more and the AI is somewhat erratic in using them...

# Surrender events - USA surrenders to Japan
#########################################################################
unfortunately it requires peace between japan and the UK and japan and the soviets. the surrender-events for the allies are rather bad (except vichy) as they require to knock out one of the majors and give rather little in return. once you knocked out enough nations to fire the event, you can easily annex them
