Italian starting navy
recommend: 1 dd or 1 CA, plus transport
recommend: you buy lots of subs
British starting navy ( in europe area)
Note: They will buy whatever they have lost plus carrier and transports, but if you look weak they will build cruisers and destroyers and take you out.
on the basis of this and the fact that the German player must make as many attacks on UK naval with sea and air elements, i really don’t see how this is happening unless:your not making these attacks at all Germany is not buying any naval Your not making any other threats and basically parking the fleet in the Baltic.
You have the tools to make the british player hurt for like 3 turns, during that time you need to use your naval to attack and you need to buy subs and other naval to keep the thing going for a while, while you get the land build up for the Soviets.
