Let’s think about this … Remember you can’t attack everything at once ad there are allways calculated risks to everything… With that being said!
The Main goal for Attacking Russiaround 1 is to cause confusion, to catch them off guard, and to take away as many men and set your self up for succsuss!
Your all wondering what I do as far as my navel with England sure!
I attack sea zone 111 with 2 subs 1 fighter 1 tactical and 1 Stratigic bomber!
And sea zone 110 with 2 subs 3 fighters and 3 tactical and 1 Stratigic bomber
The remaining sub I use in 106 it’s a fair fight and 50/50 let luck play it’s roll!
Now I find your putting to much emphasis on sea zone 115 with the battleship and cruser with my transport! Frankly speaking war is won with boots on the ground and not in the sea!
And I’ll explain say I win Baltic states round 1 I’ll have 4 infantry 1 Artiliary and 3 tanks there.
And when Russia goes round 1 and attacks the battleship and cruser it has no counter offensive agenst Baltic states at all it’s planes are used else where and all it can muster up is 7 Infantry and 1artiliary. Far to weak to attempt to take back Baltic states. So when Germany round 2 comes along I can further renforce it with the 10 Infantry from now Poland that was non combat moved there round 1 and my Roud 1 buy (1 tank,6 mech).
Novgorod can only produce 3 units there at a time and even if it renforces it with its 2 mechs 2 tanks 2 fighters and 1 tactical plus 6 more units from its previous 2 round … It will still fall round 3 regardless …
Baltic states will have its 4 men and 1 Artiliary 3 tanks from round 1 there… Round 2 will further renforce it with 10 men 2 Artiliary and 1 tank ,6 mech from its round 1 buy for a potential total of 14 men 3 Artiliary 4 tanks and 6 mech going round 3 not counting the potential wheight of the Germany Airforce or the 7 infantry marching from Finland to Karelia
And even if it kills or attacks my Fleat in 115 it’s fate will be sealed cause again it won’t be able to take back Baltic states plus if it marches west to Finland it’s gonna attack me with what 5 infantry with no planes (since there being used for sea zone 115) and it’s gonna attack 7 infantry? At a defense factor of 2 with 5 infantry at 1? I just don’t see it.
As far as Italy the game is not won or loss with Italy by far it’s a side show if Germany takes Russia by round 6 it’s to late for America to come to war to even begin to help and England is to pre occupied for atlest 3-4 round with Italy and if Italy stumbles in Africa guess what welcome to the Italian Atlantic wall that further secures the German victory in the west .
Not only that if Novgorod falls with all it’s Airforce tanks and mech in there to Germany you might aswell forfit the game…
England horrasing Italy and Germany isn’t gonna stifle there victory over Russia and worrying about " what if" isn’t how this game is played there will allways be an inherent risk in everything you do it jus has to be worth it in the end!
Fellas… “May the dice be forever in your favor”
