We know about that one - most Russian players just keep the sub there for some reason. I guess for the possible defense when a destroyer/plane go to take it out to cut the bonus.
The Russian sub is usually kept there, as Variance said, for the purpose of Convoying Norway / Germany. Kind of a little Russian jab that just sits there, taking 2-3 ipc’s per turn, until Germany does something about it.
UK Mediterranean fleet vs Sealion
Alpha +2 - Can London survive if Germany threatens Sealion (rounds 3 or 4), and UK uses its starting Mediterranean navy and airforce to battle Italy? Should UK send some of its Med planes and/or ships to London on UK2 or UK3?
It seems that if UK builds infantry and maybe 1 fighter in London for the first 2 - 3 rounds, it is still vulnerable to Sealion. But if it removes part or all of its Med fleet, then Italy runs wild.

well, italy runnign wild is EASILY made up by the fact that germany made 70+ ipcs worth of transports that will hardly do anything to help him vs russia besides threatening Novgorod.
With US entering the war soon, italy will be beaten, you would just need to conserve your afircan forces and try to slow down or contain italian advances. You dont need to hold egypt, you just need to prevent him from getting too much more. Usually of germany tries to sealion, Japan does not bother you on J2 to prvent US from entering earlier. The extra money you wil collect from controling your stuff in the pacific can be used to make stuff than can reinforce persia. Eventually when germany is going full bore on russia, you can just leave a strong garrison on uk and start wearing italy down and investing your money into africa/persia from the europe side.
