If Germany pretends it is alone on the map against England I believe they can forceably capture London on G4 after dropping a large number of units in scotland G3. The G3 Landing only has 60ish attack pips not a sure thing.
The G3 landing I calculate 81 pips vs 60, assuming Germany has five planes survive the AA gun and made a G2 Scotland landing. England narrow the gap by attacking sz111 or Scotland, but not by enough. I’ve presented these figures in the first post, edited last night. Check it out!
How many land ASSUMING Germany lands everything they can, 20 land units G3 and I think 16 G4 what is left to defend or retake Berlin? You can build 3 in Berlin G5. A bunch of tanks in W Germany with your 80ipc and also a few mech in france and a tac bomber in normandy?
What can be mustered to the defense of Germany depends on the strength and position of Italy, as well as exactly what America is doing. This is probably going to require (much) more play testing. Fortunately that’s fun!
Your Japanese ally could pour into siberia trying to hunt the 18 inf down and busting the line to distract Russia. Japan going after India probably isnt going to happan presuming Japan waits to attack until J4 just so america cant help defend London. By then india owns the DEI and is making 27ipc a turn.
Japan won’t be far into Siberia this early, but every dollar taken from Russia helps. By turn two Japan should have a major IC in Manchuria and should be in India by turn four. SBRs against Russia should begin as soon as a landing strip has been established. This brings a lot of pressure to Russia, but not soon enough to stop a R5 invasion of Berlin. germany needs to hold out a little longer.
One of these days I’m going to look seriously at harassing North America with Japan. I don’t expect they’ll do very well, but the diversion may be enough to save Italy and German occupied England. One of these days…
