Yeah the game we are playing right now (very early) the Austrians are fighting at least two fronts.
The CP plan was to take out Rome first (thinking they are the weakest), but to also threaten Russia. Austria smashed Venice, and the Germans came through the Swiss in pretty much in full force. The Italians used the Libyans to activate the Albanians, and pulled everything else to Tuscany to dig in defensively. This halted the Austrian advance (about even, but Italy is playing def). As this was going on I sent everything the French had to Burgundy F1, and now the French and Portuguese (transported to Med) are holding Piedmont with the biggest force of the 4 powers, and a couple ftrs. If the CP try to breakthrough the Italian line, the French will crush whats left of them and that front will be about done (so not sure, but I think they will probably back peddle, or try to regroup against a determined France).
There are about a doz German units in Belgium facing the same amount of units in Picardy, so that front is also stagnant, and the CP don’t have many reinforcements coming.
The Eastern front is pretty interesting though. The Austrians have over 30 units, the Germans 25, and the Turks even have over 20 units funneling up through the south (UK got stuck in Afghanistan of all places and is now behind in her duties?). Russia didn’t fight for Poland, so has about 60 units at its disposal (w/probable air support) to strike or def as she feels fit (all could bulk up on Ukraine?). The Russians could probably take a triple hit, because of the peace mail the CP would have to do, and most of the limited CP air power went towards Italy. Russia becomes a powerhouse in this game, and is very difficult to take down because she normally out numbers the attackers big time in 1 on 1 battles when defending if she is patient. If the CP can’t take out Russia, or force a Revolution by say the 5th turn (doubtful) the French and Italians will be stomping their way into either Vienna (closer from Italy/Swiss), maybe Berlin. The Germans are absolutely no threat to Paris at this time, and the UK/US will be coming over in force very soon.
