True, it seems like a waste of IPC’s - 6 vs 2 - and it takes G4 to get them into position.
However, if you can get them into position, those 27 lots of 6 ipc’s can continue to deprive the USA of income for many rnds (maybe…); and maybe it’s more effective to deprive the USA of IPC’s before they get to build something, rather than work out how to destroy it without casualties after they’ve built it.
Getting them there is a problem; but i was wondering if you could send a single sub forward in each sz around the main sub fleet to prevent the DD’s facilitating the US airforce sinking the bulk of the sub fleet - eg: get the fleet to sz103, with one sub in each of sz’s 90, 91, 102, 104, 107, 108; then all survivors and the fleet wipeout all remaining DD’s in the area (20@2 should take out a few DD’s pretty quickly!)
I appreciate this isn’t doing much to help Germany/Japan’s main tasks of crushing UK/USSR/ANZAC, however a big part of the problem is the Big Green Giant coming over in rnd4 or earlier and smashing Germany. If this sort of worked, then it gives both of them plenty of time to complete these tasks.
Is USSR an actual threat to invade Germany? i can see it being harder to crack by rnd 4, but i find it hard to believe they could seriously hurt Germany even by rnd 4…
Any other ideas to stop the rnd4 termination of the Axis?
