    Beh, l'idea e' precisamente che la nazione che sta venendo sopraffatta invii le truppe che erano in quel momento in altri teatri per salvare baracca e burattini.

    Turno decisivo per vari teatri. In NZ catturo Palmerston North senza problemi ed inizio a muovermi per l'isola. In E-Australia Alleato manda le truppe in avanti a NORD di Brisbane ma sono abbastanza coperto. In W-Australia niente di nuovo. Nelle DEI e nell'Arcipelago delle Filippine proseguo le operazioni di pulizia. In Birmania gli ex difensori di Rangoon finalmente si arrendono e do una bottarella anche a dei disperati a NORD. In Cina attraverso il fiume a EST di Chikhiang e sblocco la situazione, accerchiando definitivamente le truppe di Changsha: si parla di migliaia e migliaia di AV; non solo, inizio anche a dilagare a NORD di Chikhiang. Nel NOPAC non succede nulla e nel CENPAC Alleato bislaccamente manda delle BB a bombardare Marcus Island.
    Situazione logistica SOPAC: sorprendentemente buona. Situazione logistica Australia: critica in W-Australia ma presto risolta. Situazione logistica DEI: ottima. Situazione logistica Burma: stabile. Situazione logistica Cina: ottima. Situazione logistica altrove: necessito di più sforzi nel NOPAC, che sto un po' trascurando.
    Situazione industriale: a gonfie vele.

    Turno interlocutorio. Faccio vari sbarchi nelle Filippine proseguendo l'offensiva. In NZ e Australia non succede nulla. In Burma nemmeno. In Cina neanche.
    Situazione logistica SOPAC: ottima. Situazione logistica Australia: ottima. Situazione logistica DEI: ottima. Situazione logistica Burma: in miglioramento. Situazione logistica Cina: ottima.

    In NZ approccio Wellington, che conto di investire fra pochi giorni; la cosa è ottima dato che è una base grande e utilissima.

    In Eastern Australia sweeppo Sydney con qualche gruppo della KB ma ottengo risultati modesti, nonostante io devasti la CAP alleata. A Brisbane Alleato ha la 24th Infantry Division USArmy e 3 divisioni australiane a NORD di essa. Ubicazione delle rimanenti 3 divisioni australiane ignota: si presume fra Melbourne e Sydney.

    In Western Australia approccio le ultime basi in mani alleate. A Truk avviene un mezzo disastro quando una TF di Alleato intercetta le mie TK veloci intente a scaricare benza e ne affonda ben sei senza apparentemente cozzare con le 360 mine di Truk medesima; il danno è grande, ma decisamente risolvibile già nel medio periodo dato che mi sono organizzato bene logisticamente.

    Nelle Filippine catturo Cebu eliminando una divisione filippina e mi appresto a completare l'opera di cattura dell'area.

    In Birmania tutto tace.

    In Cina ho finalmente superato l'enpasse di Chkhiang sfondando sia a EST di essa che a SUD, a Kweilin; la posizione di Chikhiang è ora intenibile per Alleato e i 5-6000AV accerchiati in zona Changsha sono definitivamente tagliati fuori. Resta da capire se mi conviene o meno pulire la sacca prima di avanzare ulteriormente. Con circa 6,000AV in zona Changsha, però, mi sarà difficile sfondare in tempi ragionevoli, mentre allo stato attuale ho il nulla davanti a me.

    Situazione logistica SOPAC: ottima ma la perdita delle petroliere è un guaio. Situazione logistica Australia: ottima. Situazione logistica DEI: ottima. Situazione logistica Burma: si può fare meglio quanto a SUPPLIES ma comunque ok. Situazione logistica Cina: regge, ma la cattura di Changsha e Chikhiang aiuterebbe.
    Situazione industriale: ottima. Accelerato giusto oggi di un mese l'A6M5 ed i pool motori sono in netta crescita, consentendomi di avere il bonus in tempi ragionevoli. Ho deciso che mi farò il match con l'A6M5 fino all'A7M2 fra l'altro. Mi piacerebbe avere ASAP il nuovo Oscar, ma avrò da attendere un poco.

    Presto il bonus sbarchi finisce e finalmente potrò iniziare a dispiegare le mie forze in modo più ragionevole e prudente. Siamo circa 2.7 : 1 ai punti e credo di poter arrivare al 4:1 agilmente prima di Giugno '42.

    io però continuo ad essere contrario alla pratica di andare ad aprire il gioco dal lato nemico per conoscere dei dettagli che ritengo dovrebbero rimanere avvolti nella fog of war. Nello specifico, Io credo che il jappo non dovrebbe sapere dove, quando ed esattamente quanti siano i rinforzi NZ attivati dall'invasione della Nuova Zelanda. 1°: tu non ne hai bisogno, 2° ruba un po' di mistero e fascino dati dalla fog of war

    1) non ci trovo niente di male
    2) Alleato sa di default le medesime cose
    3) Alleato sa di default che io prendo e non produco l'atomica o aerei super-moderni (gli alleati potevano immaginarlo ma non era mica na certezza, cosa che cambia tutto perche' chiaramente l'Alleato ha tutto l'interesse ad essere attendista all'estremo)
    4) se accelero aerei, Alleato lo vede nella schermata informativa sui vari modelli, intelligence mica da nulla
    5) Alleato sa perfettamente dove e come colpire a livello industriale il Giappone nel late game, mentre gli alleati storici ebbero le loro brave difficolta' ed andarono a tentativi; il fatto che molti Alleati siano incompetenti in materia perche' non conoscono l'industria giapponese non e' giustificazione


    Sapere cosa e dove arriva e' anche relativamente accettabile da un punto di vista logico, visto che plausibilmente avrebbero scritto sui giornali qualcosa per calmare la popolazione. Per non parlare del fatto che le unita' in questione erano al fronte contro l'Asse e immagino Rommel si sarebbe accorto dell'assenza di qualche divisione alleata davanti a lui...

    Continuo ad avanzare in NZ.
    Sfondo un bel po' di DD alleati davanti a Sidney con gli incrociatori pesanti imperiali che fanno il vuoto come solito; ciò è un'ottima notizia visto che sono le ultime forze di superficie in mano ad Alleato nel settore. L'attacco aereo seguente su Sidney è un fallimento totale e perdo molti 2E IJNAF (modelli obsoleti e piloti addestrati in GroundBombing quindi superflui).
    Niente di nuovo in Western Australia, ma immagino Alleato voglia fare qualcosa a breve.
    Niente di nuovo nel Pacifico se non che Alleato ha rinforzato Wake. Qui ho da stare più attento: credo voglia fare una manovra bislacca a breve così come a Perth.
    Proseguo la cattura delle isole dell'Arcipelago delle Filippine supportato da circa 150 Sally.
    Catturo Lashio in Birmania.
    Pauso i bombardamenti in Cina dato che non ci sono target utili, ma continuo ad avanzare a rotta di collo: il fronte cinese è sfondato credo e sopratutto il grosso dell'esercito cinese è accerchiato in zona Changsha.
    Nel NOPAC tutto tace, ma Alleato ha rafforzato Kodiak qualche turno fa con dei genieri; la cosa non mi urta minimamente, ma devo monitorare la situazione.

    Situazione logistica buona dovunque. Situazione industriale buona ma si può fare di meglio lato bomber 2E e produzione navale (attendo in gloria il varo delle prossime due CV, previsto fra pochissimo).
    Un congruo numero di PP in pool e riserve strategiche ben posizionate sia nel NOPAC che nelle DEI. Il CENPAC fa (ancora) riferimento a Onshu finché non libero LCU dalla zona delle Filippine.
    Forts e infrastrutture varie in crescita dovunque; sento la mancanza di genieri, piaga che accompagna il Giappone fino al '45, ma posso appunto farci poco nulla. Presto formerò le prime due divisioni tank.

    per dirti. adesso sto facendo un tristissimo scenario delle marianne contro la AI: non so cos'ha nelle basi, non so cosa gli arriva, non so l'esperienza dei suoi piloti, nada de nada. Ieri mi sono trovato yamato e musashi a breve distanza dalle mie TF (che brutta fine che hanno fatto..., le due BB intendo), ma non avevo neanche idea che lo scenario le prevedesse.

    i punti che elenchi tu cadono tutti se l'alleato (io) non vado a ficcare il naso dal lato jappo. e infine: i giornali avranno sicuramente riportato che vista l'aggressione al suolo patrio erano state richiamate le divisioni dal nordafrica, ma certo non riportavano (anche per segreto militare: il nemico ci ascolta!) la composizione esatta, in che porto sarebbero arrivate e quando, fino a indicare quanti aerei e quanti bren sarebbero tornati.

    ma se tu e il tuo avversario non avete nulla in contrario e non ci vedete nulla di male, va benissimo. quando Tim dava dimostrazione di conoscere meglio di me il setup alleato mi dava fastidio, e l'ho accennato. Certo, dopo 6 mesi non gli era più molto utile, ma soprattutto all'inizio è un bell'aiuto: mandare a conquistare la tal base l'esatto numero di AV necessario senza sovrabbondare ti permette di razionalizzare le conquiste. chiaramente per uno come te che ha cominciato la GC 47 volte il setup alleato non è più un mistero.

    A) Gli scenari sono un poco differenti per via del limitato spazio e tempo
    B) i giapponesi sapevano perfettamente chi era dove al 7 Dicembre in termini di truppe (e, parzialmente, aerei). Meno in fatto di navi, ma sapevano le navi presenti nei vari teatri: p.ex. sapevano che c'era il CL tal-dei-tali nelle DEI ma non sapevano se era a Soerabaja o a Batavia.
    C) il poter vedere quali rinforzi d'emergenza arrivano e dove e' un poco forzato ma tant'e'.
    D) puoi giocare coi rinforzi variabili se vuoi e cosi non sai mai quando arriva precisamente la CV tal-dei-tali


    In sostanza, se tu vuoi giocare senza vedere dall'altro lato va benissimo, ma credo tu sia l'unico a farlo. Chiunque guarda l'altro lato ed agisce di conseguenza e non c'e' niente di male a farlo secondo me.
    Il cinese maledetto aveva ragione a guardare il setup alleato secondo me ed e' anche molto realistico se ci pensi: i giapponesi avevano passato anni e anni a studiare appunto la disposizione alleata e sapevano chi era dove meglio che gli sfigati all'HQ ABDA.

    Per me, se ti disturba che uno guardi l'altro lato prendi e giochi coi rinforzi variabili. Il setup iniziale e' conosciuto ed e' realistico lo sia (paradossalmente, gli alleati hanno informazioni che quelli storici non avevano). I rinforzi sono variabili e quindi non puoi sapere precisamente quando la nave A arriva o la B se ne va. I rinforzi di emergenza sono noti e non puoi cambiare la cosa ma tant'e': se si attivano hai ben altri problemi da gestire che la conoscenza giapponese della loro entita'.

    Alleato per contro ha un'intelligence immensa potendo vedere le date di arrivo previste degli aerei giapponesi. In capo a pochi mesi puo' farsi un'idea chiarissima di cosa ha organizzato il giapponese in termini industriali.
    Esempio: vedi che il buon A6M* non avanza (molto) come data finale e ti fai l'idea che il giapponese voglia saltare a pie' pari la linea A6M ed andare dritto per dritto all'A7M2 Sam e, plausibilmente, avere un late game piu' tranquillo. Il che implica il dover premere come un matto nel '43 e nella prima meta' del '44 per sfruttare il vantaggio relativo che va a sparire quando arriva il Sam. Ugualmente, se vedi che il buon Judy non avanza a grandi falcate, significa che il giapponese si sta lanciando sul Grace e valgono le considerazioni di cui sopra.
    Vedi che Oscar-IV e Tojo-IV avanzano veloci? Molte fabbriche R&D su di essi e plausibilmente meno su aerei late game: significa che una politica un poco piu' attendista da parte alleata e' magari saggia visto che Frank-R e compagnia cantante arriveranno relativamente tardi. Vedi che Oscar/Tojo/Tony non avanzano? Il giapponese e' andato giu' violento su aerei late game ed e' quindi meglio premere piu' che si puo' finche' si puo' perche' se uno ti si palesa con il KI-94-II a meta' 1944 sono cazzi da cagare.

    In NZ continuo ad avanzare rapido e senza troppi interventi alleati.
    In Eastern Australia mi appresto ad investire l'importante base di Townsville ma ottengo risultati deludenti nei cieli di Sydney, dove la mia caccia spazza via quella alleata ma i bomber falliscono l'affondo.
    In Western Australia tutto tace.
    Nelle DEI&co proseguo rapido l'avanzata nell'Arcipelago delle Filippine e sono gia' all'assalto di Mindanao.
    In Burma tutto grossomodo tace e semplicemente inseguo sbandati in giro mentre preparo le mie infrastrutture.
    In Cina niente di nuovo.
    Nel NOPAC niente di nuovo.
    Nel Pacifico piu' profondo avviene un altro sbarco bizzarro di Alleato con un gruppo di raiders a Baker Island. Il primo turno reggo e credo di poterli ricacciare in mare dato che mi sa hanno piu' poche squadre non disabled.

    Situazione logistica: ottima dovunque tranne che nell'Arcipelago delle Filippine, dove ho deciso di andare decisamente corto per non appesantire la mia rete, speriamo di aver fatto bene i conti.
    Situazione industriale: non ho avuto tempo di controllare.

    Turno estremamente interlocutorio.

    In NZ proseguo l'avanzata indisturbato.
    In Eastern Australia i miei Betty/Nell falliscono per il secondo giorno di fila l'attacco su un gruppo di navi alleate a EST di Rockhampton. Raggiungo Townsville.
    In Western Australia Alleato manda un fracco di tank a Kargoolie, importante terminal ferroviario, e respinge la mia povera LCU di ARM in loco. Non capisco bene la logica di Alleato nel buttare sempre tutto avanti, ma tant'e'.
    Nelle DEI continuo gli assalti nell'Arcipelago delle Filippine ed oramai restano piu' poche basi in mani alleate; atteso lo scontro finale a Mindanao.
    In Birmania tutto tace mentre proseguo la costruzione di infrastrutture varie.
    In Cina mi appresto ad assaltare Liuchow e pare Alleato si stia disimpegnando in alcune aree intorno a Chikhiang. Il Teatro e' vinto da un po' e sono molto soddisfatto di come stanno andando le cose.
    Nel NOPAC niente di nuovo.
    Nel CENPAC niente di nuovo ed e' confirmato abbia rafforzato Wake.
    A Baker Island respingo il secondo shock attack alleato che ottiene un miserando 1:3; credo i poveretti si arrendano domani, ma mi dispiace non aver affondato i due APD dato che credo Alleato non ne abbia creati molti e ce n'e' sempre un bisogno enorme da parte alleata. Inoltre, ha perso un fracco di AK e AP, cosa che riduce notevolmente le sue capacita' anfibie.

    sempre giocato con i rinforzi variabili, aggiunge un po' di fog, quanto all'analisi delle date di arrivo degli aerei jappo, non ci ho mai neanche pensato... c'è qualche alleato che lo fa? cioè che lavora così di fino?

    Si, peccato che se volessi gli sbarcherei alle spalle in cinque minuti tagliando fuori 4 divisioni a Brisbane ed i tank a Kargoolie.

    Dopo Sidney la difende con le fionde.


    Boh credo tutti lo facciano. Il discorso e' che prende mesi prima che uno inizi a farsi un'idea, ma basta avere un foglio excel con le date previste inizialmente e fare dei check periodici. Non e' niente di time consuming o che devi fare frequentemente, anche una volta al mese basta.

    VENTICINQUEMARZOMILLENOVECENTOQUARANTADUETURNOCENTODIECI

    In NZ raggiungo Wellington. Attacchi aerei alleati diminuiti.
    In Eastern Australia ingaggio una piccola TF che miracolosamente vede il DD Fanning sopravvivere a multipli colpi da 203mm e attacchi aerei vari. Catturo Toowoomba, base decisiva ed essenziale ai miei piani. Townsville piu' difesa del previsto.
    In Western Australia non succede granche' ma pare che i tank mandati a difendere Kargoolie si ritirino di nuovo verso EST.
    Nelle DEI proseguo l'opera di distruzione delle truppe filippine residue. A breve la cattura di Mindanao completera' l'operazione nell'area.
    In Burma non succede nulla, Alleato e' molto passivo su questo fronte.
    In Cina continuo l'offensiva volta a sfruttare lo sfondamento del centro nemico. Dopo qualche giorno di pausa mando anche i bomber sull'AF di Changsa e faccio 20 supply hits circa; l'assenza di fuoco contraereo mi dice chiaramente che sono alla canna del gas quanto a supplies. Pare il cinese voglia disimpegnarsi dall'area intorno a Chikhiang, base che e' ancora in mani nemiche ma che ho superato da qualche turno con un movimento sui fianchi. Asse d'avanzata lungo la ferrovia che da Changsha porta a Kweyiang procede a gonfie vele. Tank danneggiati e distrutti negli scontri a OVEST di Changsha e a Chikhiang sono finalmente tutti grossomodo sostituiti/riparati.
    Nel NOPAC non succede granche'.
    Nel CENPAC sto migliorando la NavS. Una nave singola nemica individuata a EST della Nuova Irlanda: presumo sia un DD o CL singolo mandato per intercettare le mie linee di rifornimento.
    Nel SOPAC Alleato sbarca supplies ulteriori a Baker Island ed il mio tentativo di contrattacco fallisce miseramente: mi terro' sulla difensiva ancora per un poco.

    Situazione logistica Australia: ottima
    Situazione logistica DEI: dopo un mese di contrattempi vari, finalmente risolta ed ho pure portato in loco tutte le STD-... a mia disposizione, cosi da poter fare la conversione a TK in Giugno a Singapore ed averle gia' in zona
    Situazione logistica Burma: in lento ma costante miglioramento
    Situazione logistica Cina: misteriosamente ottima
    Situazione logistica NOPAC: male come sempre perche' non do sufficiente attenzione e risorse al Teatro, per me comunque decisamente secondario
    Situazione logistica CENPAC: ottima dato che ho l'hub di Truk vicino ma mancano i genieri (ne ho circa 1,500 in Australia ed ho prima da completare le infrastrutture li)
    Situazione logistica SOPAC: ottima
    L'assenza di ENG in giro e' il grande problema logistico che ho davanti e la fonte dell'80% dei miei problemi. Ho da soffrire ancora un poco, almeno finche' le infrastrutture in alcune basi chiave non saranno pronte e poi potro' redistribuire i genieri in giro per la mappa. Sto acquistando anche i CombatENG delle divisioni mancesi cosi' da poterli impiegare come ENG normali: e' uno spreco notevole, ma tant'e'. In capo a 2-3 mesi dovrei aver liberato qualche migliaia di squadre di genieri da ridistribuire in giro e quindi dovrei aver grossomodo risolto il problema.
    L'assenza di ENG, infatti, mi rende la costruzione delle varie basi minori lenta o del tutto assente e la cosa si riflette sulla relativa mancanza di NavS e bomber nei posti giusti. Il raid Alleato a Truk di qualche turno fa poteva essere ampiamente prevenuto avessi avuto gli ENG per sviluppare Eniwetok o Taongi, ma purtroppo non li ho. Idem la mossa su Baker Island: avessi avuto ENG a Tabiteuea sarebbe stato facile affondargli tutto. Attendo dunque in gloria di completare i lavori in alcune basi chiave dove ho badilate di ENG tipo Magwe (500ENG). Per ora sono comunque gia' riuscito a completare i lavori a Cocos Island e Palembang, cosa che ha liberato ENG per altre basi nel settore. E' in Australia/Pacifico/NOPAC che arranco.


    Situazione industriale: ottima. Pool di Oscar-Ic sempre vuoti (100/mese la produzione) ma A6M2-Zero procedono molto bene. Gli Oscar, cosi come i bomber 2E, sono in grande domanda per gli upgrade dei gruppi che usano aerei vetusti.
    I cantieri navali producono bene, ma la decisione di produrre la Musashi (Yamato gia' varata con grandissimo anticipo) pesa un poco sulla quantita' di navi che posso tenere accelerate. Vedro' di pausare i sommergibili, cosi da guadagnare un po' di punti da reinvestire nell'accelerare altre navi delle quali ho piu' bisogno.
    Alla fine del bonus sbarchi iniziero' a riorganizzare un poco la disposizione delle flotte in giro per la mappa, dato che allo stato attuale c'e' una confusione immane. A livello industriale, avro' bisogno di accelerare qualche TK (causa perdite subite) e magari anche le STD-... in coda di produzione cosi da poter fare al volo la conversione a TK a Giugno '42. In generale, non produco mai mercantili ma ho deciso in questo match di produrre TK aggiuntive e le STD-... cosi da poter compensare le perdite ed avere zero problemi di approvvigionamento nel mio vasto impero.

    Brutto turno. In NZ Wellington grossomodo regge bene il primo deliberate imperiale.
    In Eastern Australia i miei A6M2-Zero sottoperformano per il secondo turno di fila. Approccio a Brisbane continua.
    In Western Australia nulla di nuovo.
    Nelle DEI un sub alleato mi affonda una minatrice a Singapore ma un convoglio con 55k supplies arriva da Formosa cosi da velocizzare le riparazioni industriali. Arcipelago delle Filippine tutto ok.
    In Birmania tutto ok.
    In Cina continua il disimpegno da Chikhiang e la mia avanzata più o meno dovunque. Le avanguardie sono nell'hex a SUD di Chungking.
    Nel NOPAC un mio DD ed una mia TB colpiscono mine a Dutch Harbor.
    Nel CENPAC tutto tace ma la nave singola alleata in movimento non viene intercettata da una squadra di DD mandata a cacciarla.
    Nel SOPAC nulla di nuovo.

    Situazione logistica grossomodo buona dovunque. Necessari sforzi maggiori per Eastern Australia in termini di FUEL forse.

    Situazione industriale migliorabile rispetto ai motori Ha-33 ed Ha-32 ma ottima per il resto.

    In pochi turni finisce il bonus sbarchi e faro' il punto della situazione sul match. Essendo intorno al 2.7:1 in fatto di punti, credo di essermi assicurato l'autovictory gia' a Giugno 1942 considerato il mio posizionamento generale. In compenso, alcune operazioni prenderanno piu' tempo del previsto.

    In NZ provo ancora a Wellington ma l'attacco va male.
    In Eastern Australia niente di nuovo.
    In Western Australia tutto tace.
    Nelle DEI niente di nuovo.
    In Birmania niente di nuovo.
    In Cina catturo Liuchow con discrete perdite per il cinese.
    Nel NOPAC niente di nuovo ma sono riuscito ad evacuare dei frammenti delle truppe di Dutch Harbor, base che ho deciso di lasciare indietro.
    Nel CENPAC nulla di nuovo. Credo.
    Nel SOPAC ingaggio la TF che stava scaricando a Baker Island ed affondo due xAK; purtroppo gli APD sono intonsi e l'AP si becca soli 7 colpi, sicuramente insufficienti ad affondarla.

    Situazione logistica nel SOPAC in relativo miglioramento. Importante il fatto che i convogli che hanno sbarcato le truppe in NZ sono rientrati e peseranno poco sulla catena logistica.
    Situazione logistica nell'Eastern Australia e' buona in termini di SUPPLIES (circa 200.000ton sbarcate), ma pessima in fatto di FUEL. Credo che cambiero' leggermente i miei piani favorendo lo sfondamento del settore di Townsville, cosi da guadagnare un porto in una posizione ottima per ricevere materiel dalle DEI. Peccato che io abbia il grande stock a Truk............
    Situazione logistica Western Australia stabile. Non ho nemmeno grandi bisogni dopotutto.
    Situazione logistica DEI risolta positivamente. Ho molte dozzine di migliaia di SUPPLIES per velocizzare le riparazioni dei pozzi/industrie e ampliamenti di HI in posizioni chiave.
    Situazione logistica Burma buona. Devo assolutamente sviluppare Tuoungoo per facilitare il flusso di SUPPLIES durante il monsone (non e' proprio cosi semplice la cosa ma l'idea e' di poter avere buone riserve appunto a Tuongoo).
    Situazione logistica Cina eccelsa. Qui sto gia' iniziando a prelevare truppe per altri fronti (nello specifico, una divisione di fanteria e varie unita' di supporto).
    Situazione logistica NOPAC ottima. Vari convogli di rinforzo sono arrivati e l'inverno sta per finire, cosa che mi permettera' di iniziare costruzioni varie.
    Situazione logistica CENPAC ottima. I consumi sono minimi e quindi va tutto bene.

    Situazione industriale buona. Giusto oggi ho avuto un paio di accelerazioni nella R&D e fra Aprile e Maggio '42 iniziano la produzione vari modelli importanti come il Rufe ed il Nick. Sopratutto il nuovo Nell e' importante, dato che ha range in normal di 21hex ed in extended di 26hex: aiutera' molto con la NavS e nel colpire bersagli ben lontani. Ne produrro' addirittura 70 esemplari al mese (per cominciare) e restera' il bomber di punta dell'IJNAF fino a praticamente fine guerra. Sopratutto la possibilita' di fare NavS a lungo raggio mi sara' utile nel contesto attuale: i Mavis sono estremamente richiesti e pochi gruppi sono disponibili.
    Conto di catturare Wake, metterla sotto il General Defense Command HQ [R] cosi da poter almeno utilizzare uno dei due gruppi permanentemente ristretti presenti ad Onshu. La cosa libera altri Mavis da posizionare nel SOPAC, mentre nel CENPAC uso Betty vari (e poi Nell) dato che ci sono tante basi con AF relativamente grandi e non ho bisogno del range estremo dei Mavis.
    Un altro gruppo di PA verra' magari temporaneamente liberato sul lato OVEST della mappa, dove posso fare coi Betty per un po' di tempo. Cocos Island e' stata portata in tempo record ad AF=lvl4 e presto raggiunge addirittura il lvl5 (massimo constentito): mettendo un AirHQ in teoria posso anche disporre di siluri, cosa benvenuta. Le Andamane le copro alla meno peggio in altro modo e Nord-Sumatra e' gia' ben coperta.
    L'area di Perth necessita di PA. La NZ necessita di PA. L'area delle Fiji necessita di PA. Fanno tre gruppi e sono precisamente quelli che ho a disposizione ora come ora.
    A livello industriale, a Luglio arriva l'Emily, aereo eccelso ma ancora distante nel tempo.
    La produzione di Kate-I/Kate-II/Val procede abbastanza bene. La produzione di A6M2-Zero e' ok. La produzione di Oscar-Ic e' ottima, ma spero di poter introdurre l'Oscar-IIa in estate. Anche l'A6M5-Zero e' previsto per l'estate e restera' il modello di punta per l'IJNAF fino all'arrivo del George (aviazione a terra) e del Sam (aviazione imbarcata).
    Devo produrre piu' 2E probabilmente: anche con la produzione monstre di 150 Helen al mese, credo di aver bisogno di circa 100 Lily/Sally che si sommano alla cinquantina di 1E in produzione (fino ad esaurimento motori) e che fanno ASW/addestramento.

    In termini di PP, le cose vanno relativamente bene. Ho comprato giusto ieri una divisione dalla Cina e presto ne compro un'altra. LCU di supporto ed alcuni InfantryGroups da 252AV da comprare as well.



    Come noto, non specifico molto i miei piani, ma posso dire che la mia idea attuale per Aprile e' di rallentare il piu' possibile le operazioni e per migliorare la disposizione delle truppe, la logistica e riparare danni minori alle navi. Nel mentre, svolgero' sopratutto operazioni minori su aree oramai ampiamente isolate ma ancora in mani alleate come Darwin, costa NORD australiana in generale, Townsville e Port Moresby. La fine del bonus sbarchi rallenta un poco il mio ritmo, ma credo di poter svolgere senza problemi ogni operazione.
    Le CV sono di nuovo tutte disponibili, ma probabilmente copriro' queste operazioni minori con delle CVE random cosi da evitare qualche raid minore di Alleato. Se non sbaglio ho 5 CV e 3 CVL, cui si aggiungeranno altre due CV a breve. In linea di principio posso creare due o addirittura tre TF (usando pero' le CVE in questo caso) per tenere ogni angolo di mappa sotto tiro. Gruppi aerei imbarcati in sorprendente forma, nonostante io abbia avuto perdite varie.

    In NZ sbarco a Gisborne, base posizionata sulla costa EST ed abbastanza utile per la NavS.
    In Eastern Australia proseguo manovre varie, sopratutto sui fianchi di Brisbane.
    In Western Australia sbarco qualche robetta sulle due basi a SUD-EST di Perth.
    Nelle DEI mi preparo all'assalto sulla roccaforte alleata a Mindanao, cosi da liberare circa 1,500AV per altri compiti.
    In Birmania niente di nuovo.
    In Cina proseguo l'avanzata sia su Chikhiang che verso Tuyun.
    Nel NOPAC completo l'evacuazione di frammenti di LCU da Dutch Harbor, base che non intendo investire per il momento.
    Nel CENPAC niente di nuovo.
    Nel SOPAC niente di nuovo.

    Situazione logistica NZ/Australia/SOPAC : buona.
    Situazione logistica DEI: ottima.
    Situazione logistica Burma: buona.
    Situazione logistica Cina: ottima e presto migliorera' ulteriomente.
    Situazione logistica NOPAC: molto migliore.
    Situazione logistica CENPAC: buona.

    Situazione industriale: ottima.
    In pochi giorni inizio la produzione del Rufe e dei Mavis-TR, che sono decisamente utili. In un mese invece iniziano la produzione il Nick ed il Betty a lungo raggio, entrambi piu' che benvenuti. In due mesi credo di poter iniziare sia l'Helen-IIa che, volendo, l'A6M3, aereo che non produrro'.
    In estate previsti sia il nuovo Oscar che l'A6M5.
    Produzione navale a gonfie vele e spero di poter ridurre un poco la pressione sui cantieri fra qualche mese. In tre settimane varo un'altra portaerei fra l'altro.
    In arrivo diversi gruppi aerei fra un paio di giorni. Specialmente i fighter dell'IJNAF sono i benvenuti.
    Vari gruppi di fighter della Manciuria sono da un po' di tempo ad Onshu, dove stanno lentamente facendo upgrade a Oscar-Ic prima di essere spediti al fronte.

    Turno estremamente interlocutorio.
    In NZ proseguo ad avanzare e sbarco nell'importante Gisborne.
    In Eastern Australia Alleato continua sporadici bombardamenti aerei mentre avanzo dovunque.
    In Western Australia individuo ed affondo due grandi TK alleate in mezzo al nulla. Molto bene.
    Nelle DEI nulla di nuovo.
    In Birmania colpisco sbandati vari.
    In Cina avanzo a rotta di collo.
    Nel NOPAC niente di nuovo.
    Nel CENPAC niente di nuovo.
    Nel SOPAC credo Alleato abbia sbarcato rinforzi a Pago Pago.

    Situazione logistica: buona dovunque.

    Situazione industriale: buona dovunque.

    TRENTAMARZOMILLENOVECENTOQUARANTADUETURNOCENTOQUINDICI
    In NZ catturo l'importante Hamilton, 150km a SUD di Auckland, e mi appresto a prendere anche Gisborne.
    In Eastern Australia ho fatto affluire un po' di A6M2-Zero ed abbatto una trentina di bomber alleati in giro. Bombardo dal mare e dal cielo Townsville, dove danneggio varie navi nemiche. Fallisco l'ingaggio con gli incrociatori da battaglia Kongo-Class davanti a Sydney ed affondo tre inutili AM.
    In Western Australia tutto tace ed i CA che ieri hanno affondato due grandi TK alleate in mezzo al nulla sono sulla via del ritorno.
    Nelle DEI sono alle battute finali della cattura di Davao.
    In Birmania tutto tace.
    In Cina proseguo i miei movimenti in avanti, con centinaia di migliaia di cinesi rimasti accerchiati indietro.
    Nel NOPAC lancio una carica banzai a Dutch Harbor con l'idea di avere le mie LCU distrutte in tempi rapidi e di ricostruirle a Onshu grazie ai frammenti evacuati qualche turno fa.
    Nel CENPAC tutto tace ma credo Alleato provera' qualcosa a breve.
    Nel SOPAC tutto tace come nel CENPAC e credo che pure qui Alleato provera' qualcosa, probabilmente intorno a Pago Pago.

    Situazione logistica: eccelsa pressoche' dovunque.

    Situazione industriale: ottima e domani inizio la produzione di nuovi aerei. Ancora sciaguratamente indietro quanto a bonus motori alla R&D.

    Dopo la neozelandese col culo di marmo mesi fa, ho fra le mani un culo che rivaleggia tale qualita', cosa buona e giusta.

    In NZ, per l'appunto, avanzo senza problemi ed abbatto vari bomber kiwi.
    In Eastern Australia nulla di rilevante.
    In Western Australia nulla di rilevante.
    Nelle DEI credo di poter sferrare gli assalti finali a Mindanao fra massimo tre giorni.
    In Birmania tutto tace.
    In Cina ottengo un successo notevolissimo, completando l'accerchiamento di Chikhiang, importante base cinese dove ben 1,300AV sono intrappolati. Puliro' la sacca di Chikhiang per migliorare il mio network logistico, ma ho deciso di lasciar perdere la sacca di Changsha per il momento: i 5,000AV cinesi intrappolati nell'area saranno eliminati piu' tardi.
    Nel NOPAC lancio una carica banzai a Dutch Harbor.
    Nel CENPAC tutto tace. Credo.
    Nel SOPAC elimino i marine raiders che erano sbarcati a Baker Island una settimana fa. Tutto calmo per il resto.

    Situazione logistica SOPAC: ottima.
    Situazione logistica Australia: buona.
    Situazione logistica NZ: mediocre.
    Situazione logistica DEI: devo verificare se ci sono cambiamenti ma direi ottima.
    Situazione logistica Burma: in lento ma costante miglioramento.
    Situazione logistica Cina: ottima e sara' ancora migliore dopo che Chikhiang sara' presa.
    Situazione logistica NOPAC: molto buona.

    Situazione industriale: migliorabile.
