why would japan have to attack russia I have won many times as germany without sealion and japanese help in barbarossa.
Oh , and if you check out the early GNazi buys, my Axis opponent even admits he didn’t buy enough tanks since he used his airforce to destroy the British Navy in turn 2 and the Mediterranean Navy in turn 3 early in the game. so the extra 9 IPCs from the far east could have been elminated earlier. He didn’t hit it till Japan Turn 8 which meant the Soviets colleted 72 IPCs for the game from the far east. cutting it down by turn 5 or 6 well after Germany was pressuring the Soviets and with Japan stomping to to india could have swung the war against the Allies! I had also moved 15 far east troops all the way back to moscow and they were big help in retaking Stalingrad.
