I like to do this sometimes. � Instead of buying a Navy in G1 - I’ll just do a basic buy, either troops or a plane and troops. � UKE will lower their defenses (I didn’t buy Navy, I’m obviously not going UK) and will focus on the med or Africa. � G2 - transports (5-7 depending), launch on G3 - take it 85% of the time. � Then just move on down to Gib, let Italy out - and take out US. � Hasn’t worked quite like that yet, but its come close a couple of times.
My 92 stack gives the UK incredible flexibility in defending sealion, and still threatening italy. I would have like 5 less infantry than normal, but I will be bringing home all of my air, navy, and maybe the malta garrison. Easily makes up for it.
So you stack 92 on UK1 - you’re going to be leaving the Med on UK2 to protect against Sealion? Then Italy grabs Gib on their turn…
Maybe I’m a stupid player, but I send the house as Italy when UK sits in 92. I then let Germany clean up on their turn (planes from Italy, HB’s from W. Germany). It only sets me back 1 round.
Are you buying an AB UK1 for Gib?
I would leave the med only if Germany had a super strong sealion. I would calculate how much that is needed to hold it, and send the rest on italy. Usually I would buy an airbase if I need to scramble. This move helps to preserve the UK fleet and to give options UK2.
