Hey guys! Just a strategy I was thinking about and wanted to know what you guys thought about UK putting an IC on Egypt.
Now, I realize that most G1 strats say that taking Egypt is a must. It’s just that it really doesn’t happen much in my play group. So lets just assume, for the sake of the thread that Egypt is untouched by G1, or that it miraculously held max aggression of what I can tell is 1inf+1arm from Lybia, 1inf+1arm from SE,1 ftr from balkans, and the bomber.
My purchase for UK1 are: 1 IC (15), and 1 aircraft carrier (14)
-If on G1 Norway is left weak then I like to take the transport from Canada, load that tank, and join the other transport in SZ2, adding a infantry and hitting Norway with 2 inf + 2arm + bombardment roll from the BB + 2 ftr all from SZ3.
-If Norway is somewhat defended then I will redirect the transport and BB to offload+bomb Algeria
-Strategic bombing run on Germany
Non Combat move:
-I would completely evacuate India, taking 1inf and the AA gun and loading them on the transport then dropping them off in Egypt. The single fighter from the Indian aircraft carrier would also land in Egypt for added defense from a G2 attack. The rest of the India infantry would move to Persia.
-The remaining Indian Navy would end in SZ33 to stay out of range from a J1 East Indies Navy.
The IC would obviously be put in Egypt, and if Norway was attacked then the Aircraft Carrier would be placed in SZ3, allowing the fighters that attacked Norway to land on it. Or put the Aircraft Carrier in SZ2 if you attacked Algeria.
-The point would be to establish a foothold for UK other then London. And allowing UK to purchase 2 tanks a turn to help Russia on UK4.
-Once you get the Egypt ‘engine’ pumping out 2 tanks a turn, it gets really hard for Germany to hold Russia back and UK wil always have 2 tanks on Egypt and 2 tanks in Persia, until the ‘engine’ is stopped.
- UK is very dependent on US fortifying London, as it would be left with only 1 arti, and 1 bomber for defense. US flying over its fighter and bomber are a must.
