No, they're also good for killing the Italian fleet in the Med or eventually killing the German fleet when the Baltic is opened

After 5 games of Europe and 2 of Global, I just assume that I'm not going to have much of an Italian fleet after UK1, aside from maybe saving the the destr/cruis/transport for a turn. Though this is one of the first games that I didn't go all out on the UK navy G1 -- I haven't really seen a correlation between taking out the UK home fleet and saving my Italian navy, the UK player will sink it no matter what I do up north.

As far as the Baltic navy goes, the Kill Russia strategy uses it to take out the Russian navy early, then maybe reinforce Norway/Finland with the transport, but I pretty much gave up on Norway anyways. I think the UK player eventually took it out with planes.

I definitely see the importance of taking out UK's navy G1 if you're going for any kind of naval/Sealion build, but when you're focused completely on a land battle with Russia, I say cut your losses. I like taking out the transports, because that postpones a landing until UK2. I can handle the early UK landings, and by US4, I'm ready for the bigger American landings too (but it also really helps to have Japan in Alaska/Hawaii).

 Its just a rare opportunity to have them left open. Also makes it more likely the Italian fleet will live and gives the UK an opportunity to flub up and underprepare for sealion.

I really like your thoughts on the eastern front.  In my current game Italy is making twenty something so they can push a couole troops into Russia and have been 'backed up' towards the Caucasus or India by the brits who are pushing north from south africa.
