I broke into the VASSAL file and changed the morale before setting the DRMs. At that point I just rerolled for each province. Better result for the SVN this time and it saves you some eye strain.

I've tried to bold the relevant portions from the logfile.

Rex> - Strat Bombing
<Rex> - Trail effectiveness is placed back in same space with optimal
* Trail Effectiveness moves 3 -> 4 *
<Rex> - I'll spend 33 air points on the trail. and 36 on unrestrained bombing in the north
<Rex> - Air Defense is Zero
<Rex> - Trail roll is on row 13
<Rex> - Hits roll
*** 1d6 = 6 *** <Rex>
<Rex> - Puts it on row 19, whihc is 2 hits.
<Rex> - Effectiveness goes up 2 boxes
* Trail Effectiveness moves 4 -> 2 *
<Rex> - losses
*** 1d6 = 5 *** <Rex>
<Rex> - modified row 18 is 1 [air point] loss
<Rex> - Now rolling for the North. Starts on Row 14
<Rex> - rolling for losses
*** 1d6 = 2 *** <Rex>
<Rex> - Row 16 is 3 losses
<Rex> - Air losses
*** 1d6 = 4 *** <Rex>
<Rex> - Row 18 is 1 [air point] loss
Rex> - SVN Morale +4 for unrestrained bombing
<Rex> - Rolling for US morale loss [-(1+d/2)]
*** 1d6 = 3 *** <Rex>
<Rex> - -3 to US Morale
* x1 moves SVN Morale0 -> SVN Morale4 *
* x1 moves US Morale8 -> US Morale5 *
<Rex> - SVN is @74 and US drops to 515

Now need the VC Sea commitment.

With a commitment of 2, the index # was 54. I have 3 naval points, so I roll 3 dice. I rolled 5,4,5, for a modified number of 40. The highest index number that doesn't exceed this was 38, which translates to 8 supply points actually getting through.

SVN politics to follow shortly.

I updated the command for the SVN divisions (the 9th is now in III Corps). I *think* that all the independent regiments are assigned to the correct corps still.

During the replacement segment, the leader of the 23rd Division was replaced. New leader is a C1.

Coup roll was a 9, which put the I-Corps general as Wavering and the Air Force and II Corps generals as Pro Coup. But there are still 4 Loyal generals, so no coup. The Air Force General's loyalty dropped (II Corps is already at the bottom).

SVN Moral Adjustments:

-1 (Pop 191-220 [213])
+10    (new US commitment 20% of 143 is 28.6, but capped at 10)
-2 (Ky)
-------------
+7 Net gain

SVN Morale is now at 81

US Morale adjustment:

-2 (US commitment b/t 151 and 250 [168])
-2  (New commitment of up to 25)
-24 (for each 5 points of new  commitment past 25)
----------------------
-28 total

US Morale at 487

NVA morale is next, but since that's just bookkeeping, I'll move on to US/ARVN recruitment.

Starting out by withdrawing some US units:

2/, 3/, and 4/173 (-3) (from 5633)

1st Division: 2/1, 3/1, 1/2, 3/2 (-4) (from 5549)

1st Marine:  1M, 1/7, 3/5 (-3)  (2866, 2766, and 2767 respectively)

2/199 (1367); 3/199 (1466) (-2)

Commitment Drop: -12

New Commitment:

8 175mm Art:  (+12 commitment)
7 155mm Art:  (+7)
30 Air points:  (+10)
28 SVN Supplies (+4)
8 Air Mobile  (+4)

New Commitment:  37
Net Net Commitment: 25

I used the SVN supplies to upgrade ARVN units.

12 infantry battalions:  (8 points)
4 infantry regiments:  (12 points)
4 Division HQs:         (8 points)

I think that's everything for me. Over to you for Commie reinforcements.

Sorry for the delay. Moving into a new house and the start of the semester at ASU has me tied up.  Should be able to do some infiltrating by Tuesday night.

Hi guys.  Looks like life got in the way and stalled the game.

I'm looking for a game if anyone is interested.  I prefer online with Vassal.  I can do 1 session per week to start with.

Thanks
