“if pear harbour is not attacked than on us2 there will be 3 stacked carrier’s, 1 bb, 1des, 2subs, 1 trns in solomon ils.”
Where do you get two subs? I can see the subs, yes, with UK moving Australian sub east, but that’s a fodder sub, not an attack sub.
Also, there should not be six fighters. Four fighters, sure. Six, no.
To the first post: Basically, you sacrifice your Germany game to distract Japan. Even then, Japan has the option of forgoing Pearl and smashing Russia quickly. I’ve run into USSR Burytia defense before. What I did was:
1. Attack with Asian-based infantry AND the transport from Japan, giving 3-4 infantry plus heavy fighter cover, plus battleship support shot. The Japanese infantry mostly die, but USSR’s power is completely wiped out. The battleship doubles as an escort for Japanese transports, so fighters strafing the Japanese fleet from Pearl are much less of a problem.
2. Kill UK fleet. There really isn’t much else for all of Japan’s naval killing power to do.
If you parked the UK fleet in range of a Jap battleship, that UK fleet will get blown up in all likelihood. If you went southwest of Australia, it takes forever to link up with the US fleet, and the Japs will probably start hunting the UK fleet in earnest on J2. (The UK fleet should not survive).
With the listed move of UK fleet to Kwangtung and Russian fighter, that UK navy is not in good position. Against 13344 (one Russian), I easily have 01133334. That’s a free hit on my battleship, three fighters, a destroyer, and the battleship attack. Which does not SEEM to be awful, but it is actually pretty bad. Because A) I can attack and then retreat, taking a free hit on my battleship, B) I will still probably be in good position against China and Burytia with 3 fighters and 1 bomber, C) I can forgo Burytia for the already explained reason (Burytia can’t go far), and hit China with 2 fighters, adding a fighter and bomber to my attack, D) if Japan attacks and retreats, UK has nowhere to run, and can’t even counterattack effectively because of the Japanese battleship soaking up a hit (UK will probably lose transport and destroyer to attack, leaving carrier, fighter, and UK bomber, which is not good against battleship plus loaded carrier), E) because the Allied fleet is in hostile territory, it has no place to land fighters, so it must lose fighters BEFORE the carriers, or Japan can just pull out and watch the fighters splash into the ocean.
E) is not certain, but 2 inf 1 fighter vs 3 inf is NOT great odds to base fighter landings on. And even if the fighters COULD land, they could be wiped out with if Japan simply took Kwangtung back first, or did any other number of horribly interesting moves.
Immediately horrible position against Germany, with only one territory taken, and less German losses (barring a lucky attack in Ukraine), with additional losses in either West Russia (due to one tank less attacking per round), or Ukraine (due to unfavorable odds). Loss of fighter means more forces must be committed to trade land with Germany. Use of Indian transport against Kwangtung means Germany should have held Anglo-Egypt past UK1, which means German-held Africa.
Japan has the option either of 1) attacking Pearl Harbor anyways, in which case the Burytia infantry have to mostly retreat (anything on the coast will be completely obliterated on J2), so Russia can really only afford to leave 1-2 infantry on the coast.
Or Japan can go 2) attack with high likelihood of capturing Burytia, wipe out China, kill all UK navy. UK navy may not be vulnerable, in which case Japan can consolidate its navy to ensure wiping out the UK navy on J2 or J3 (UK can flee, but then it can’t assist much in the Pacific battle until very late). In this case, you have a strong Germany (as already described), and a strong Japan on the mainland. Allied India is more resistant, but the fact is that that strength came from bleeding off Russia’s reserves.
All said, the moves in the first post are not necessarily horrible, but I also must say I do not see a clear gain for the Allies with those moves either.
