    Da notare come in 40 turni:

    A) Luzon mia
    B) Singapore/Malesia mie
    C) Sumatra mia (la parte sud)
    D) Giava mia (resta giusto Batavia)
    E) sbarchi nel SoPac gia' avvenuti e sono arrivato fin giu' ad Efate (e Luganville)


    Ho ancora 75 turni di bonus sbarchi su 115. Non male, insomma.

    Dei bersagli iniziali mi mancano ancora:
    I) Borneo (intenzionalmente lasciato indietro causa aviazione sui pozzi)
    II) Mindanao (una campagna sempre rognosa e che prende tempo e truppe) e le isolette delle Filippine (in corso d'opera senza fretta)
    III) Parte S-W delle DEI (sto prendendo Makassar ora ma il resto e' ancora decisamente alleato)
    IV) Burma
    V) Wake

    Lasciare il Borneo indietro è geniale!
    Non ci avevo mai pensato ma hai ragione da vendere.
    Non so se storicamente la cosa fosse fattibile, non credo personalmente , ma nell'economia del gioco è una ottima idea.

    A patto di prendere Miri (nord Borneo). Ci sono 300 Oil e di solito in gran parte danneggiati. Ci vuole tempo per le riparazioni e quell'Oil è fondamentale.

    Balikpapan e Samarinda possono attendere (non troppo) Miri no. Imho.

    Storicamente non era un granche' fattibile se me lo chiedi, perche' avrebbero distrutto i pozzi. Anche vero che comunque storicamente non lo fecero con grande rapidita', quindi booooh


    Io la vedo in modo opposto, figurati

    Secondo me i pozzi sono da prendere il piu' tardi possibile perche' e' decisamente improbabile zittire l'aviazione alleata del tutto e, allo stesso tempo, proteggerli adeguatamente.
    Una volta che le posizioni nemiche sono isolate, e' impossibile ricevano rinforzi e senza ombra di dubbio non ci sono abbastanza truppe o genieri per fortificare adeguatamente, quindi non e' un problema.


    Io prendo sempre tardissimo tutti i pozzi. Tanto la benza prodotta nel mentre non scappa (si, c'e' lo spoilage, ma e' sempre meglio del rischio di verdersi i pozzi brasati).
    Un alleato che sa quel che fa ti bombarda a ripetizione i pozzi appena li prendi e ci rimetti migliaia e migliaia di supplies per ripararli, cosa sconsigliabile. Per non parlare del classico colpo fortunato che magari ti sfonda anche 10-20 punti OIL con una singola bomba.

    In linea di principio abbiamo:
    I) Miri/Brunei (Miri parte con 150 damage all'OIL) : facili da prendere ma difficili da difendere dal cielo causa AF alleati dappertutto nel Borneo
    II) Palembang/Djambi : facilissimi da prendere ma, vista la presenza inquietante degli AF di Giava ad un tiro di schioppo, non e' il massimo della vita catturarli subito. In compenso, Palembang dovrebbe essere facile da difendere.
    III) Medan : la prendo sempre con un po' di ritardo ma non ci sono minacce
    IV) Giava : la roba a Giava e' abbastanza ok-ish, visto che una volta che prendi mettiamo Soerabaja, significa che hai gia' un discreto controllo dell'area.
    V) Balikpapan/Samarinda : buoni AF e terreno di pianura. Facili da prendere e impossibili da rafforzare per l'Alleato. Il terreno di pianura e' un casino rispetto ai bomber e sono anche prossime a Soerabaja, tipico porto dove gli alleati riarmano incrociatori e ForceZ: gente che rompe il cazzo assai. Utilissimo prenderli presto cosi' da rifornire il Pacifico sin da subito.
    VI) Tarakan : richiede un lavorone di preparazione causa batterie costiere coi cannoni laser
    VII) Magwe : essenziale una preparazione notevole prima della cattura e difenderla pesantemente dal day+1 dalla cattura
    VIII) Babo/Boela : generalmente nessuno se li incula
    IX) Cina : se c'e' l'HR sullo strat bombing in Cina, tutto ok.
    X) Altro : i pozzi di Ledo, se presi, sono ottimi e in terreno difensivo buono. I pozzi in Australia sono pochissimi ed inutili. I pozzi in Pakistan un po' lontanucci... I pozzi in West Coast non credo li abbia mai presi nessuno. I pozzi nella parte NORD di Sakhalin sono interessanti ma per prenderli c'e' da dichiarare guerra ai russi quindi non e' un'ideona.


    Riassumendo: se proprio devo prendere qualcosa, cerco di prendere Balikpapan e socia per rifornire il Pacifico (e Babeldaob che parte con tipo sole 25.000FUEL ed e' uno snodo nevralgico di naviglio di ogni tipo). Tarakan pure da prendere subito sfruttando la forte presenza aerea e navale imperiale nell'area nelle prime fasi del match (portare indietro per Tarakan la KB una volta che la mando nel Pacifico e' un po' un'inculata). Tutte e tre queste locations possono essere facilmente difese concentrando i pochi asset aerei moderni a disposizione (A6M2-Zero e Oscar-Ia/b/c).
    In generale, pero', preferisco portare centinaia di migliaia di tonnellate di benza da Onshu al Pacifico inizialmente senza dovermi affidare ai pozzi.
    Contro Kaiser credo di avere circa 750.000ton di benza gia' ora a Truk, tutte da Onshu.

    Diciamo che qua siamo più nell'ordine delle cose, certo che 30.000 son tanti....
    Non sono convinto che sia la soluzione giusta per l'alleato fare mosse dimostrative fini a sé stesse, ma il mondo è bello perché è vario!

    Secondo me invece la postura è ottima. L'idea di un raid mi è piaciuta molto i problemi sono che:
    - Tarawa è un posto inutile anche non fossi stato in loco, chissenefrega tanto non può rifornirla o fare alcunché con la base, specie senza genieri
    - la KB si era mossa dalle DEI verso EST e quindi era evidente fosse andata a Truk. Ora, considerata la situazione generale, non poteva che essere in giro. La scommessa fosse su Wake magari ci stava ma comunque sono ad un tiro di schioppo e con la KB andata verso EST e scomparsa dai radar da qualche turno era un po' un azzardo
    - Dio solo sa perché, era diversi turni che aveva una TF di 4 navi a Tarawa. Il turno prima del suo sbarco avevo appunto distaccato la Hosho coi suoi patetici 12 Claude e 6 Jean a indagare quindi ero già sul chi vive da mo'
    - il reggimento USA gli avrebbe fatto comodo altrove
    - in generale sono contrario ad ogni contromossa prima della fine del bonus sbarchi
    - le navi usate sono state ottime ma, avendole affondate, è un guaio per lui visto che di AP non ne ha tante e sono l'unica cosa che salva alleato fino a '43 inoltrato (hai le APA a inizio '43, vero, ma son pochine inizialmente).


    In generale so che la sua prassi è di mandare tanta gente a Nouméa quindi ho deciso di assaltare Nouméa e Suva in contemporanea con una divisione ciascuna invece che mandarne due a Nouméa e poi fare in sequenza Suva.
    Credo che il caso di incozzare nella KB in navigazione verso Noumea-Suva non sia stata proprio sfortuna, si poteva evitare.
    Ora ha un fracco di poveri diavoli a Nouméa e l'aviazione in loco dopo tipo due o tre turni è già in sofferenza assai, quindi la vedo male. Ci sta una divisione sola non sia sufficiente per Suva invece, cosa che sarebbe oltremodo seccante.

    I tizi controsbarcati a Tarawa facevano parte della riserva per l'operazione su Nouméa-Suva quindi non è che io abbia avuto intoppi dal quel punto di vista, mi è bastato dirottare la TF da sbarco e via.

    12 A6M2-Zero not ready. Meno male vado sempre in giro con 3 a/c di riserva per ogni gruppo.


    In caso di ulteriori violazioni HR in tal senso, vedrò che fare. Presumibilmente inizio a bombardare le industrie cinesi e mando in Cina la Manchurian Garrison. O più probabilmente interrompo unilateralmente il match e amen.
