DN: The SNLF IIIs in Glory will have IDs of 1Comb thru 8Comb (1 thru 6 at start) which correspond to the Japanese SNLF ‘regiments’. These regts were sometimes given names, such as the Kure SNLF, but in Grand Glory the units will have numbers so that any combination of battalions may be the components. The SNLF II Breakdown Box allows the Japanese player (historical) to break down SNLF IIs into half components. This practice was used both in the Philippines (1Sase) and against Wake/New Ireland (2Maiz).
PRODUCTION

CONDITIONAL REINFORCEMENTS
No change, except for changes listed below.
#2) Japanese Engineers
Units to which this applies:
Add,

Remove,
1×5-3-5 Para III…Yok.
Ignore any reference to 5-3-6 Para III and 1-5 Para…2Yoko & 4Yok.
Remove,
1×1-2-5 Para II…2Yoko and 1×1-5 Para II…4Yoko
DN: The 2Yoko and 4Yoko are not para-trained.
#7) Upgrading Units
Ignore any reference to the listed upgrades.
DN: The 65R is a six battalion brigade with no artillery, and though its six sister brigades in Japan were converted to divisions, the 65R never was as it was diverted to the Pacific as separate parts. (Later in the war a 65th Div was raised independently.) Also, these brigades are not actually reserve units but instead are referred to by the Japanese as infantry groups (HD). These units were holding units for the excess trained infantry from the training command.
The 4th Division is changed in the upgraded OB and is shown with its normal strength, but is missing 3 strength points.
The Japanese have a number of heavy artillery regiments that are small units (btns-sized). Their artillery regiments are normally either, 16 or 24 heavy guns – 105mm or 150mm. The small “regiments” are normally 8 guns – 105mm. These units did not change/upgrade as this is the IJAs standard TO&E.
 
#8) The Japanese Imperial General HQs Strategic Reserve
Add,
Any forces listed in the upgraded OB as ‘reserve ‘are considered part of this CR.
Replace,
Listed items that are part of Imperial Japanese Navy.
With,
Available in Southeast Holding Box:
2x 7F5                                   0/17                       A6M2
DN: These two air units are part of the Yamada Naval Air Group (Kok), 22 Naval Flotillas, based in Cochin-china. Note that there are no land-based A6M2s available in Japan at this time. Also, only the A6M2s of the Tainan Kok on Formosa were upgraded to the new range.
 
Available at Hainan Holding Box:
Ignore. Including ’assembly’.
DN: The 2Yoko is not a para unit, but it is available as a SNLF btn. Historically it invaded western Borneo – 1×1-6 SNLF…2Yoko. The 4Yoko is not available in TDDH as it is part of the Garrison of Hainan and it is in its naval guard mode. In Glory, SNLF IIs may convert to naval guard units (and back). The 17 range Zeros will begin upgrading to a 23 range from the MAR I 42 turn in the campaign OB.

1×0-1-4 hv AA II      AA=1                                anyT

4×1-2-5 Nvl Trps II…1T, 2T, 30T, 31T, 32T
4×0-1-4 hv AA II       AA=1…2T, 3T, 30T, 31T, 32T
DN: The 3T has no parent brigade as it has no naval guard unit. Instead the 6Yoko served in that role.

DN: Additional:
1-A5M4. The A5M4 (Claude-II) has its range augmented as its long range includes a total of 490 liters of fuel, with a 160 liter drop tank.  Now, with 330 liters of on-board fuel, it has a range of 658 miles (1092 KM+/-), resulting in a ratio of fuel use of 1.99 liters/mile. The additional fuel provides for a 32% increase in range, or 490 liters multiplied by 1.99 ratio, equals 975 miles [975 divided by 64=15]. In addition, there were also attachments on the wings for two 133 L drop tanks ca. 1941.
