• I’ve seen the Germans take all 3 mainland French tt on turn one, however they failed to take out all of the royal navy, though in a risky gambit the German player did manage to sink the DD and get a hit on the AC off the coast of Gibtraltar. They killed off everything else except the BB abd DD in the english channel, which he paid for the next turn when this fleet sunk the German Cruiser and BB.

    I think the best tactic for the Germans after the fall of France is to build 2 concentrations, one of fighters in France and one of Tanks in Poland/Rumania, and support these with Tac bombers

    Sounds good, but don’t forget you also need ample cannonfodder (infantry).


  • Yes indeed, I would think that initialy the infantry from southern Germand and Germany would provide the nesscary cannon fodder, combined with the troops already in eastern Europe.

    My stratgey for Germany is to keep a large stack of Tac bombers centraly located in their tt, like in western Germany. Then keeping a stack or 2 of fighters in France, and stacks of tanks in the east so that you can strike at both Britian and the Soviet Union, using the stac of tacs (hehe stack of tacs  :-D ) as a fire brigade of sorts. This way you can rapidly respond to both fronts, keeping Britian in check and making advances in the Soviet Union at will.


  • My concern is having to defend another factory in S. France from the U.S.A.  ie from a Gibraltar attack.

    I would prefer a minor factory in Yugo


  • I can see a fair case for both. My strat with Italy is to focus on the Balkans and keep my fleet in the eastern Med, away from the British in the Atlantic and close enough to redeploy to Egypt/mid-east should I need to. I would prefer the Germans to have southern France just so they have an easy jumping point and because, with the larger income, can more easily afford to build fleets there as nesscary.

    @jeffdestroyer:

    Remember, with the fighter stacks I mentioned and the Tac bomber firebrigade, you could easily counter attack and destroy any invasion in that area
