it is bc it opens the door for a german blitz.
key trick isnt the infantry thing thats too slow. daves move is to grab the tank off africa to add another one, and use the yugoslavia retreat trick with both germany and italy in sucession
We want to try this for the axis next game.
May this be a hlepfull option to support the axis advance throug southwest Russia?
Recent game - Italy (1) sent 1 inf to Bulgaria at I(2) Italy took Greece from UK (which took it last turn)
My last axis win was Germany Sealion and delayed attack on USSR till turn 4. It made sense to give Italy Bulgaria for the additional 4 infantry. Indeed, it helped them get Iraq and create a Soviet southern front.
Does Italy taking Bulgaria detract too much from the Germans on the Eastern front? Or do the 4 inf and 1 IPC not make that much of a difference? I haven’t tried it yet
I would think its good to give extra guys and ipc’s to Italy. You can add a couple Italian tanks to start driving into Russia (maybe to can opener). You could also get them into the African fight if you can keep the Italian navy a float.
I will say I like to take Yugo w/Germany for a possible IC build if it looks like the Italian navy is going under. A few German subs in the Med (with German air) could help axis turn things right. Plus both Italy and Germany can build in the same sz. I know Greece gives you this option too, but it can be invaded to easy from sz 99.
