Thanks for the analysis AllyAxis.
One thing to note is that Russia also has 2 AA guns in Novgorod, so they cna actually have 4 in Moscow. Also, IN most games I have played Germany can’t afford to send all of its planes to Moscow even jsut for that attack, so I don’t see 12 or less shots bothering the soviets that much. Let’s not forget the cumulative effects of those 4 extra hits over multiple rounds, either.
Did Japan ever get that new NO of theirs? Did Normandy or SZ 91 Survive Germany’s first turn? What did UK do to the Italian navy on round 1?
Obviously I haven’t seen the game but it seems like Itlay is having a pretty easy go of things even though UK barely had to worry about sealion.
I have already taken Lenningrad and Moscow only has 2 AA guns. They never moved them anywhere else and died in Lenningrad. I have a plan but just in case my Allied player is reading I cannot reveal it yet. I will be able to get more than 6 planes to moscow for sure before my final attack. I am starting turn 7.
I took out the British Navy Turn 1 except for Canada and Sea Zone 109 destroyer /transport.
I went ALL AXIS on the Soviets strategy. So basically I only took land DEI, China to generate IPC’s to build tanks. I built a Major in Kiangsu on turn 3 and piped 7 tanks and 5 infantry and am currently sucking the life out of the Soviet Union. So no . I ignored the new NO completely. I also Ignored Amur and went north of it and south of it.
British Navy attacked the Italian Battleship and Cruiser but failed to take it. Italy survived with damaged battleship but I lost a scrambled fighter. no biggie the transport and Battleship were alive to fight another day with the cruiser destroyer sub and transport in SZ 95.
they did destroy the Malta Italian fleet SZ 96. but he lost his entire navy in the Mediterranean and there was nothing he could do to deny my 5 IPC bonus for Italys entire game. he just didn’t have enough power the rest of the game with his navy unless america committed to it which they did not. they went KJF while I basically got cash built tanks headed west to Soviet russia fortified japan’s capital and said screw the pacific map.
I will post links to my photo journal probably in a new thread. Not my best photo journal but its something. IF they will let me post links to my fb page where I host the images as public images.
I’m loading them now. But it will take a while to label them . I have them organized.
