What were you purchasing with US and what was Japan purchasing? What was the major battle and how did japan come out with so many ships left?
OK the game is a few weeks back and on GTO, so forgive me if my memory fails sometimes.
USSR took West Russia but with losses. USSR strafed Ukraine leaving only the fig. This means 6 armor was available in cauc after USSR1.
G recaptured West Russia but only with few units since they used their airpower for SZ2 and UK cruiser also. Egypt was captured with only 1 armor.
G bought inf + bomber expecting a “fortress of Europe” like scenario.
Allied decided to go KJF UK1, when they bought an IC for India. And hitting FIC
US initial buy was 2 ICs since Japan failed taking China - given the oppurtunity again, I would not have bought the 2nd IC, since it was difficult to maintain control of China all the time.
Allied made sacrificial landings in Africa UK1+US1 and cleared Africa with these units - I think placed some air maybe a US bomber on Gibraltar, and G used their G2 landing to take that out instead of reinforcing Africa.
UK killed the med fleet UK2.
Japan skipped SZ52 and bought 2 transporters and a destroyer.
I think tha naval battle was in round 5 and it was someting like:
US 6 figs, 1 bomber, 2 subs 2 dstr, 1 AC, 1 BB against Japans: 4 figs, 1 sub, 1 dstr, 1 cruiser, 1 AC, and 2 BBs.
First round dice was a disaster for US making 3 hits I think - the battleship 2 hit rule
really punishes a weak first round - retreat was not an option since Japan then would be able to counter with a lot more air units - so it went to the end with UK attempting a lucky punch afterwards (1 sub 2 figs 1 bmbr)- but that was suicide - so game over, but interesting game :)I
