Turn 11 report
Things are getting ready to nut up now!
Germany is preparing to launch their first V-rockets. Uk infrastructure is gonna be in for a hard time. UK has been trading control of Norway and Denmark but Germany finally pushed them out. UK counter attacked in Holland and Normandy but are still facing rocket attacks from France,West Germany and Norway. England was able to draw off 10 units from Leningrad with their repeated Norway attacks preventing Germany from a blitzkrieg attack on Russia.
With key Italian victories in Western Ukraine and Belarus, Germany is poised to launch their long awaited blitzkrieg attack. While the outcome is in doubt, the new me 262’s entering the battlefield could prove the deciding factor. Germany’s U-boats have been contained since rd 7, but with the promise of Herr Speer of a soon to be super sub,confidence is growing.
The Soviet Union has more than proved their mettle. Facing simultaneous attacks from Germany and Japan, She has successfully counter attacked and was even able to bring China back to life. Although being slowly pushed back by the dual onslaught the arrival of advanced artillery and mechanized units have boosted her power and flexibility. Being able to successfully hold Archangel, in combination with the British blockade, She has had a consistent income.
Japan has been in a naval arms race with the US and is being pressured hard in the New Guinea, Java zones. Marines from both sides have seen a lot of action. Her offensive in the Soviet Far East is going well, currently being in Buryatria. However Soviet paratrooper assisted counterattacks have forced Her to retreat in Northwest China. Her main fleet is in the Phillipines while the US with minor ANZAC help is in NSW. India is starting to project some power towards Yunnan, but so far Japanese air and naval threat have kept Her in check.
The US has been primarily focused on Japan, but has a small carrier fleet with cruiser destroyer presence outside of Gibralter along with a bomber. A coordinated attack with UK against Germany is being recommended by General Marshall. With a strong presence in NSW, with additional forces in Pearl Harbor and Western US, the tide is slowly turning. The soon to be arrival of long range B-29s has US confidence high.
Italy has prevented allied blockade attacks and until last turn collected the Med bonus. Doesn’t look like she’ll be doing either any more. The remnants of her African Army fought well only being eliminated rd 10. With no previous Mediterranean threat She was able to concentrate on air and mechanized forces for key eastern front attacks.
UK has prepared for rocket attacks by stacking England with heavy land builds. The survival of her original fleet continues to provide options for amphibious attacks. Africa is finally under control with a factory built last turn in Egypt. A few mechanized units and a fighter have made it to India.
ANZAC’s Royal Navy was overruled and She spent 30 bucks on AB, NB upgrades. Her US Allies refused to sail otherwise. Her income has been back and forth but fortunate enough to have a few 15 dollar rounds.
France has been " chomping at the bit" to get back in the fight, but strategic common sense has held her back. She still has two cruisers,destroyers, a transport and a dude. Biding her time.
Fun Stuff Midnight!
Really starting to like the fact you have to buy infrastructure. Not only historical to a large degree, but limits your movements which… well yeah changes lot’s of things:)
It’s not like the first time playing Global 40. It’s like the first time playing '39
