I’m in a global right now as the Axis player. Its now UK3, Japan has done a successful J3 India & has control of all China (less 4 territories I just have to walk into), India & all SE Asia (less Hong Kong, Malaya & 1 other UK straggler I’ll have to clean up w/ J4 battle to take), Japan averted a US Strike against the homeland & w/ no more transport troops have moved their fleet from J6 towards Flip, where they are now staging along with Anzac.
On the Europe side Italy has cleared the Med, still retaining most of its fleet & is poised to take Egypt on I3, However the US has got Gib & had anchored a small fleet w/ loaded CV off Gib. US-east purchased 5-subs & 4-cruisers last round! The UK @ this point has not reinforced London, but they will this round. Germany is poised to take Ukraine & Novgorod on G4 & Russia has abandoned Stalingrad entirely & amassing in Moscow.
So Now most of my German forces & planes are on the eastern front w/ just token forces in France, Germany & central territories, so I’m fearing a big onslaught/invasion coming from US/UK w/i a couple rounds.
But for now, how the heck do I deal with all those Russian tanks in Moscow? He’s got 21 there right now, w/ 8inf & 2-fghtrs. It will take next round to knock out the northern & southern factories, & 2-more rounds just to make it to Moscow w/what ever units I have left from the prev rounds battles. Currently I only have about 13 tanks, 20inf, 2mech, 4art, 1 bmr, 5fgntrs, & 4tacs combined w/my north & south armies to last for the next 3-rounds to Moscow! & Russia is buying 7-tanks per round w/ an inf or 2 (as he took the oil fields early & has a couple pro-axis territories as well) so he’s making good IPC’s.
I’m just afraid that by the time I get to Moscow, with my current force, that Moscow will be too big & wipe me out, or If I wait to build for a couple more rounds, so will Moscow, & be even bigger. Because I still have the US/UK invasion coming, so I’ll have to divert some of my IPC’s to reinforce there.
So is this an insurmountable situation in the coming rounds @ this point???
