    @OwenToo said in OwenToo (Allies) vs Simon33 (Axis) BM3:

    We will let it stand. I would not likely have taken down a bomber with my intercept

    Are you sure? We can use the “Roll Dice” feature if you want to intercept.

    I assumed no intercept in Moscow.

  • RE: Germany playbook: overall strategy guide

    @weddingsinger yeah but once you start delaying the Moscow assault more troops will be bought by USSR and so you’ll need to invest much more in taking Moscow. So I think that it is indeed a problem. Perhaps you can do something with the CV that makes it worthwhile, I’m just not convinced of that.

    Taking Gibraltar pretty much requires a J3 (or later) DOW. Otherwise USA will smash you in SZ91. So for all that Axis sacrifice, are you getting Egypt? Not that likely.
