• I’d say taking out the UK med navy are must do attacks, as well as taking Karelia and Ukraine.


  • @Bunnies:

    There are no fixed “must attacks” for G1.

    Hitting the UK battleship/transport is often, but not always, one of the attacks Germany should do G1.

    Why not always?  Because something better might present itself.

    West Russia…  :evil:


  • ok then, but excluding some exploitable snafu for russia, does sz2 become a no brainer, or just a good option among others?

    West Russia, Caucasus, and Russia, as opportunity presents.


  • @aqian:

    The key is if you do not conduct SZ2 combat, UK could build a safe fleet in UK1 and start to harassing the north or west coast from UK2 with a BB bombardment.

    And additionally the BB is a “get out of jail, free” card for naval battles. BB, AC +2ftr, 2xDD is 18 defense value and the first 3 hits will be 12 IPC still leaving 14 defense.

    Just to match that defensive power Germany needs 2 Bombers, 2 fighters, 2 subs. And the first three hits reduce it to 11 attack.

    To kill such a fleet, Germany needs to buy correctly, position correctly, and strike immediately when it gets the chance. And the heavy Luftwaffe purchases might leave the ground forces struggling vs. Russia.
