I’m assuming that nobody has payed any attention to anything I’ve outlined in this strategy. I don’t know how much more I can say on the strategy. I might make another shorter video showing a push through the North. If someone could describe their German strategy going through the North I’ll gladly post a video on it.
Well, again, I’m not going to watch a 90 minute video. Maybe some bullet points?
Northern route gives Germany access to 5 or 6 Russian IPCs without being in striking range of Bryansk. 5 if Russia parks in Smolensk.
Southern route givers Germany access to 1 ipc without being in striking distance of Bryansk, though presumably they’re too strong and can occupy one of the Ukraine’s without being attacked for a -3 to Russia, at least early on.
As for a northern attack, I’ve got two options:
If Sealion, I basically cede Scandanavia (1 blocker in Finland to slow down Russia, if he has a tank to blitz to Norway) and keep a stack in eastern Europe
On G4 I can retake Norway, if needed
On G5 I can take Finland, Karealia, Baltic States, Novgorod, and Eastern Poland (Russia -5 ipc)
G6 is usually solidifying that. 5+ German transports dropping reinforcements on Novgorod or Baltic
G7 I can start to bomb the tar out of Moscow, take Belarus in force, fight over Ukraine and Western Ukraine (low stakes, single guy, or let Italy take it)
Without Sealion, invade G2, Eastern Poland, Baltic States, Karelia (Russia -3 ipc)
G3 take Novgorod and Belarus (if Russia is aggressive, one of these might wait til G4) and start bombing Moscow
G4 take Belarus, etc.
