Generally pacific builds consists of a 2 to 1 ratio of subs-destroyer. Following turn is 5-6 bombers. This forces Japan to start building fleet instead of troops for India/China crush.
I just had to give som additional thumbs up fo9r this comment 😄 Buying other combat ships than subs, dds (Or CW + ftrs) is rarely correct. the 2 to 1 ratio shos that sean knows how fodder works and how it is the most important thing in these battles.
The only reason to stop buying the subs is if japan for some reason dont respond with fleetbuilding and only buys planes instead. But then you should win anyways 😄
which is why i said that it didn’t work against a too planeheavy japan. on theory, the DDs + other surface ships ofc needs to be enough to stop all the planes of japan + 2 rounds of plane only builds of japan.
What would prevent japan from attacking your fleet of subs-destroyers with air and a few destroyers. With 20+ planes they can whipe out your whole fleet with minimal losses as subs cant even hit the planes.
I normaly go for a carrier heavy fleet followed by subs destroyers for attacking power. Ideally i want my carriers to bait an early attack from japan that i can crush in the counter and get his carriers and BB out of the way so anzac and UKP can clean up the rest.
Graphic comparison between Global and Original Game Setup
This is a comparison between AA Global 1940 and the Original 2nd addition 1942. The original bit map files are over 12mg, I had to save them as two files, convert them to png files, then strip out information from the Global Map like neutral units, city names, sea zone numbers and such in order for the file to get under 256k.
The game has quite evolved over the years from checkers to 3d chess. Doubled sea zones and tripled in territories. And the numbers of units involved is most impressive when you look at how few units were involved in the setup of the original game.

These are really excellent maps, man. Great job!
Thanks for the memories. How many hours of my life did I give to that old Map!
I remember having 7 players on that one Map. Germany played by 2, and USA played by 2.
Nice Map, Thank you!
Just need one with the original setup…
