    Purtroppo no, anche se ora è tranquillo.


    Ero molto preso dal lavoro. Oggi ho (finalmente) ripreso entrambi i match.

    IL GRANDE RECAP DELLA MORTE


    Cosa stavo facendo? Iddio solo lo sa.

    La panoramica è interessante.

    In Cina le cose vanno a gonfie vele:
    bombchina.JPG

    E, sopratutto, ho raggiunto giusto oggi Chikihang.

    Kaiser si è misteriosamente fatto intrappolare centinaia di migliaia di cinesi nell'area di Changsha. Stimo in oltre 5,000AV le forze nemiche insaccate.

    Ciò ha una serie infinita di ramificazioni, ma le principali sono che:
    • La strada per Chungking è aperta
    • Il grosso delle truppe cinesi verrà spazzato via e, pur "rinascendo" magicamente a Chungking, le truppe iniziali hanno TOE complessivamente decenti e le truppe "rinate" fanno invece cacare e sono inutili a bestie e genti
    Inoltre, le centinaia di migliaia di cinesi nell'area di Changsha superano malamente gli SL, con annessi malus di ogni tipo. Molto bene.

    Changsha medesima è saldamente assediata dagli imperiali.


    Nelle DEI tutto grossomodo tace. Sto completando ora la conquista di Timor, ultima zona rilevante in mani alleate.
    Resta il nodo Mindanao, area che odio con tutto me stesso e cerco sempre di evitare come la peste. Conto di spedirci il corrispettivo di una divisione a breve.


    Burma procede ottimamente. Meiktila è caduta oggi ed il cerchio intorno a Magwe si stringe sempre di più.

    Pare gli alleati non vogliano offrire resistenza in loco. Molto bene.


    PACIFICO

    Nel NoPac ho catturato con somma gioia Attu Island e non pare vi siano segni di vita alleati. Molto bene.

    Nel CenPac sono indietrissimo: manco ho catturato Wake.

    Nel SoPac in compenso ho catturato l'area di Tabiteuea (massacrando anche un maldestro sbarco alleato a Tarawa), le Ellice Islands, Baker Island e Suva.
    Il perimetro è grossomodo stabile.
    Noumea, notoriamente, è caduta.

    Per oscure ragioni, Kaiser dà grande importanza all'inconsequenziale Noumea e la mia serie di vittorie in loco credo mi abbia assicurato un sereno 1943. Raoul Island, pure, è in mani imperiali.

    La logistica è attualmente un poco stressata in fatto di benza, ma ho circa 600,000ton a Truk e le TK/AO per trasportarlo alla bisogna. Il problema attuale è più riguardante la dimensione dei porti a mia disposizione che altro.

    4 CV USA sono affondate ed io per contro ho perso scioccamente la Kaga. Una Midway al contrario.
    Considerato che avrà a disposizione solamente 2 US CV per il resto del 1942, direi che va tutto bene. Il mio programma di produzione navale è stato accelerato dopo l'affondamento della Kaga e credo di poter sostituire la perdita in tempi molto ragionevoli.

    Con lo sfondamento delle posizioni alleate a Noumea e dintorni, ho l'upper hand in tutto il Pacifico, cosa più che benvenuta.

    In tutto ciò, l'altro ieri sono sbarcato a Geraldton con 4 divisioni di fanteria ed oggi l'ho conquistata, massacrandone la spaurita guarnigione.

    Iniziano a scarseggiare SNLF e NavGuards. La prossima infornata di NavGuards di rinforzo arriva in due settimane. 7 NavGuards per un totale di 420AV, anche se di discutibile exp (50) e coi notoriamente infami TOE delle NavGuards giapponesi.

    Il grande vantaggio è che le portaerei americane fuori gioco rendono un'operazione anfibia alleata nella seconda metà del '42 del tutto suicida. Quindi, mi devo più che altro preoccupare di puntate minori vicino alle basi alleate.



    Last, but not least, la produzione aerea imperiale è ottima e le perdite limitate. Unendo ciò ad una guerra terrestre molto poco costosa, il risultato netto è ottimo.
    In mare ho avuto l'erroraccio che mi è costato la Kaga ed un paio di CS, ma direi che ho avuto perdite decisamente modeste: 158 navi affondate di ogni tipo, di cui, per la gioia di @cohimbra che sa di quel che parlo:
    - 3 CL (errore a Suva - 2 vecchissimi Tenryu Class [1919]; 1 Yubari Class [1923])
    - 2 CS (errore a Suva)
    - 1 CV (errore a Suva)
    - 2 CA (affondando la Force Z - 1 Takao Class [1930]; 1 Mogami Class [1934])
    - 13 DD (6 causa mine; 2 causa sub; 3 causa navi nemiche; 2 causa aerei nemici - 4 della vecchissima Momi Class [1919]; 6 di varie classi mediocri; 3 ottimi Fubuki(II) Class [1928-1930])


    Gli alleati hanno perso un fracco di robaccia. Ad occhio direi:
    - 4 US CV
    - 2 US CA
    - 9 CL di varie nazionalità
    - 3 BB/BC
    - 32 DD

    Il punto comunque è l'aver portato avanti il mio piano strategico senza intoppi.


    La situazione ad oggi:

    Piccole perle.

    Al 7 Dicembre 1941 il Giappone dispone di 18 CA.

    Nessun ulteriore CA viene prodotto durante la guerra.

    Ne ho persi 2.

    Il che porta il totale a 16. Perfetto per fare 4 divisioni incrociatori.


    Furutaka-Class.
    4 esemplari varati fra il 1926 ed il 1927. Sono fragili e discutibili.
    Questo il capofila:
    upload_2021-10-20_15-10-47.png

    Hanno sia pochi long lance che pochi cannoni, solo 6 da 200mm.
    Sostanzialmente, sono CA di una generazione precedente a quelli più moderni e decisamente superati.
    La loro utilità è in scontri di superficie con unità similmente obsolescenti tipo i CA della Royal Navy e i CL pre-Brooklyn-Class.

    I 4 esemplari sono: Furutaka; Kako; Aoba; Kinugasa.

    Formeranno la CruDiv4, il cui compito e location sono naturalmente top secret.


    Si passa poi alla Myōkō-Class. 4 esemplari varati nel 1929.
    Questo il capofila:
    upload_2021-10-20_15-15-50.png

    Intuibilmente, si parla di tutt'altra classe rispetto ai Furutaka. I Myōkō hanno già le caratteristiche moderne dei CA della seconda metà degli anni '30 e sono ottimamente protetti (102mm di belt armor vs 76mm dei Furutaka), oltre che dotati di ben 10 cannoni da 200mm in cinque torrette doppie.

    La Myōkō-Class è composta da: Myōkō; Nachi; Ashigara; Haguro.

    Formeranno la CruDiv3, che potrà quindi schierare ben 40 cannoni da 200mm, una bordata da 32 long lance per lato e 12 FP per compiti di scouting.


    Si passa poi alle rimanenti 3 classi di CA imperiali: Takao-Class; Mogami-Class; Tone-Class.

    Dei 4 Takao iniziali me ne restano 3 (l'Atago è affondato come un sasso) e dei 4 Mogami, pure, me ne restano 3 (il Kumano è venuto giù anche più velocemente di un sasso). Ho entrambi i preziosi Tone-Class a galla però.
    Il risultato logico è di spartire i due Tone-Class in sostituzione del Takao e del Mogami-Class affondati e formare così le due più moderne CruDiv imperiali.

    La CruDiv2 sarà formata da: Takao; Chōkai; Maya; Tone.
    Il capofila della Takao-Class (indicato come sottoclasse Maya-Class dal gioco):
    upload_2021-10-20_15-22-30.png

    Molto simili ai precedenti Myōkō-Class, i Takao-Class non rappresentano una grande differenza.
    Veloci, ben armati e decisamente capaci di condurre operazioni indipendenti, sono ideali per duelli contro forze di superficie nemiche.
    La Tone-Class:
    upload_2021-10-20_15-24-24.png

    La Tone-Class ha una velocità di punta decisamente maggiore (35knts) ed imbarca "solo" 8 cannoni da 200mm. In compenso, porta a bordo ben 5FP, cosa utilissima per compiti di ricognizione. A ciò si aggiunge l'autonomia gigantesca data da ottimi serbatoi di carburante.

    Con 3 Takao-Class+1Tone-Class, la CruDiv2 rappresenta un'ottima forza d'intervento in aree contestate dove non dispongo di sufficiente NavS o copertura aerea.


    La CruDiv1 è composta dall'eccelsa Mogami-Class e dal Tone-Class rimanente.
    La Mogami-Class:
    upload_2021-10-20_15-27-22.png
    Veloce, ottimamente blindata e con 10 cannoni da 200mm in posizione convenzionale, la Mogami-Class rappresenta l'apice della produzione di CA imperiali.
    I 3 Mogami-Class rimanenti, Mogami; Mikuma; Suzuya, saranno accorpati al CA Chikuma della Tone-Class.

    Da Luglio 1942 è possibile una lunghissima conversione (240 giorni) che praticamente rende i Mogami-Class una sorta di super-Tone-Class. Si vanno a perdere le due torrette di poppa e la capacità di FP imbarcati cresce a 11. Non credo di fare tale conversione.


    Questo è quanto. La seduta sui CA è tolta. Inshallah.


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Le BB sono invece decisamente lineari nella loro riorganizzazione. Sostanzialmente:
    • le 4 Fuso/Ise-Class (25knts) se ne stanno per i fatti loro.
    • le 2 Nagato-Class (25knts) pure
    • le 2 Yamato-Class (27knts) sono scorta pesante
    • i 4 incrociatori da battaglia Kongo-Class si beccano il 90% dei compiti seri come solito (a causa dei 30knts di velocità)

    In tutto ciò, avrò anche da farmi coraggio e riorganizzare i DD, cosa che mi prende sempre una marea di tempo e della quale sono perennemente insoddisfatto.

    I CL non li riorganizzo affatto invece. Gli unici CL di cui mi curo sono i 6 Nagara-Class che possono diventare CLAA dopo sei mesi di conversione a partire dal 01-Gennaio-1944.
    Ci sarebbero anche i Tenryu-Class, vetusti ed inutili a bestie e genti, ma li ho persi entrambi. Avrebbero potuto fare una discutibile conversione a CLAA. montando 8 127mm DP, ma tnat'è. Il punto è salvare i Nagara-Class che sono relativamente ok come CLAA nel late game (i Tenryu sono meno che inutili ed occupano solo spazio nelle TF).
    Gli altri CL di cui mi curo sono i Kitakami-Class. Due CL armati con 40 long lance ciascuno. Possono fare un upgrade che rimuove i long lance ma me ne guardo bene. Li uso, se posso, in coppia assieme a vari DD pesantemente armati con la visione di una gigantesca salva di long lance sparata contro il nemico e fugone seguente.


    Tutte queste riorganizzazioni, comunque, saranno effettuate alla fine della fase di espansione imperiale.

    "10 lanciasiluri quadrupli"... Mica cazzi.

    In notturna Oi e Kitakami fanno sfaceli se ben comandati. Il problema è che devi fermarne gli upgrade e quindi non montano radar o altre amenità che arrivano più in là.

    C'è anche un DD sperimentale che monta 15 long lance, ma viene varato nel tardo '42.

    Con una bordata di 40 long lance, i due Kitakami sono devastanti. E, sì, fanno grossi danni anche alle navi più grosse. Fai conto che i siluri aviolanciati giapponesi avevano 235KG di esplosivo, mentre un long lance ne ha 490. In sostanza beccarsi un long lance è come beccarsi due siluri lanciati da un Kate o Betty.
    Ed i danni non vanno in modo lineare, sarebbe a dire che una singola bomba da 1000KG fa molti più danni di due da 500KG in linea di principio. Chiaramente ci sono tante altre cose da considerare: per esempio, è meglio colpire una CV con un paio di bombe da 250KG che con una singola perché è più probabile mettere fuori uso il ponte di volo. Uguale con le piste degli aeroporti.
    E con le navi in uno shipyard c'è da raggiungere i 100 di system damage e paradossalmente è meglio colpirle con più bombe piccole che con poche grosse.

    Nello stesso spirito, in scontri navali vari in notturna mid-war i CL americani fanno scempio perché sparano un fottio di cannonate di medio calibro ed hanno ragione anche di navi ben più blindate: danno alle fiamme la sovrastruttura, massacrano l'equipaggio e rovinano i "systems", rendendo il controllo danni imperiale, già di per sé immondo, del tutto inutile.
    Persi la Hiei a SUD di Socotra in questo modo.


    Il trick coi long lance è di avere un comandante moderatamente aggressivo e con tanta "NAV" skill. Idealmente, si pone in posizione migliore del nemico, spara la salva di siluri e poi si ritira. Comandanti troppo aggressivi cercano di continuare a combattere fino alla fine e non vuoi certo Oi e Kitakami ingaggino a cannonate. Comandanti con Nav skill meno che stellare non garantiscono di avere il posizionamento migliore, e magari anche surprise, sul nemico ad inizio scontro ed il posizionamento è chiave per affondare il nemico coi siluri.
    Meno moonlight c'è e meglio è. Se le navi nemiche possono essere ingaggiate prima da un'altra TF, meglio: ci sta che sopratutto le navi grosse siano in fiamme dopo il primo scontro e diventano grossi ed invitanti bersagli nella scura notte del Pacifico.



    EDIT:
    Il CL Kitakami prima dell'upgrade che gli fa perdere i siluri:
    upload_2021-10-21_16-27-34.png

    Dopo la conversione (da 40 a soli 12 long lance):
    upload_2021-10-21_16-28-21.png

    Ed il DD sperimentale Shimakaze coi suoi rispettabili 15 long lance in posizione centrale:
    upload_2021-10-21_16-29-29.png

    Ed i siluri imperiali:
    upload_2021-10-21_16-30-44.png
    Il Type 93 610mm è il long lance.
    Il Type 95 530mm è il siluro tipico dei sub.
    Il Type 91 450mm è invece il siluro aviolanciato.

    Come si vede, i long lance hanno "effect" doppio rispetto ai siluri aerei, mentre i siluri dei sub sono grossomodo comparabili ai suddetti long lance.
    Il problema evidente dei long lance è che sono lanciati da navi di superficie e quindi è un po' un casino mettersi in posizione per colpire qualcosa e servono salve grosse. Idealmente, con moonlight bassissima ed un ottimo capo TF, ci si spotta col nemico a brevissima distanza e la salva di long lance iniziale è devastante, cosa storicamente appropriata.

    La tipica TF di 4xCA+8xDD ha grossomodo: 16 long lance per ciascun CA e 8 per ciascun DD. I CA lanciano una salva da 8 ciascuno (sono divisi per lato), mentre i DD lanciano tutti i siluri a prescindere (posizione centrale). Il che fa una salva ideale di 12*8=96 siluri. Se lo scontro inizia sotto le 5,000yards, è una carneficina.
    Coi Kitakami/Oi e Shimakaze, invece, si ha una tipica TF di 2xCL+Shimakaze+5xDD.
    Il che fa una simpatica bordata di 40 long lance dei CL + 15 dello Shimakaze e 40 dei DD per un totale di 95 siluri.

    Chiaramente è già tanto se le navi sparano il 50% dei siluri nel corso di tutto il combattimento, quindi si parla in termini astratti. Ma anche "soli" 30 siluri sono un bel problema per la TF nemica se c'è roba più grossa di un CL.
