UK barbarossa strategies


  • TripleA

    If the Russia NO is corrected, I would like a black sea fleet for russia, 2 cruisers a destroyer and a transport. Historic accuracy would be a nice compensation. Sprinkle a bomber on top plz 🙂



  • Did you forget I don’t sacrifice my fleet in the Med against the Italian fleets on UK1?  Maybe I didn’t mention that - my bad.

    I utilize the Med fleet behind the Suez to escort TT’s from the Italian Bomber (I didn’t realize the Germans can reach from Wgr).

    In any case, if Germany is sending bombers at a TT in Africa and behind the Suez, then I’m feeling good about the Allied Strategy.

    Well in that case, Italy should have no problem becoming a 30+ IPC/Round power in no time, which kinda lesser A LOT the russian threat. Italy will constantly threaten The mid-east at minimum, making it very difficult for russian units to grab african territories.

    Why?  That’s a huge bonus to Russia; that’ll serve only to tie up and destroy about 2 German planes every game.
    Historically, it’s not like Russia ever threatened Romania or Bulgaria with an invasion…so it’s hard to justify that way.
    We could propose an awful lot of “historical” placements which would also be pretty unbalancing.


  • TripleA

    germany does not have to sink black sea russian ships you know, he can ignore it.



  • Not if there’s a Russian transport threatening the Balkans - Bulgaria (4 IPCs)/Romania (6 IPCs)/Greece (2 IPCs).  Germany can never let that stay, once at war.


  • TripleA

    yeah sure it can, whatever goes there dies.



  • Um yes.  And it’s absolutely worth it -

    3 IPC infantry to earn 4-6 IPCs, and force Germany to devote resources towards taking it back.
      -in addition to killing, on average, at least 1 IPC of German infantry on defense.
    Looking at it only numerically, it’s entirely in Russia’s favor to suicide infantry into the Balkans every single turn it can.

    As Germany, it would be very poor tactical play to allow Russia to do that even once.


  • TripleA

    well it is still less than the money russia would make off of the national objective.



  • I’m a bit confused as to what you mean there.

    Still interested in this little discussion we’re having but -

    What was our topic here again?
    UK’s actions in the face of a Barbarossa?

    Taranto, help Russia get African/Mideast territories, crush Italy.
    What else?


  • TripleA

    well yeah, focus italy. that is my suggestion. blast away and ball till you fall. eventually convoy disrupt sz 97 to hell!

    Bam…that’s it.  Most games are going that direction.  Rome and Cairo are the kickbacks before Moscow goes down.  From there it gets even- very long slow grind.

    The battle is won in the Med/Africa/MidEast region period.  It gets very tactical and dicey here, which is why I think the game is even, Allied advantaged as the game gets longer, past 10 rounds.
