Agree with munck on this one. If Russia wants to lose or just sacrifice itself for the allies try this out. I take neutrals as Russia so the allies can’t get them. I’ll also attack Vichy so French don’t get their land back later. I don’t want France liberated fast I want it to be a slow attrition so Russia can take more land somewhere else while the other guys are distracted.
Russia is separate from the allies!!!
They only have the same enemy. It’s a 3 player game!!
It is separate; but the Soviet’s natural enemy is Central Europe, and an enemy of my enemy is my friend.
If the Soviet’s are being oppressed and pushed hard and need a second front opened, the Soviet’s declaring war on suitable target that the allies could capture.
Spain or Portugal, Greece or Yugoslavia, Holland, Belgium and Denmark, all out of reach of the Soviet’s, and all landing pads for the allies to open a second front.
Directly it does not add, or take away victory points, its purpose is to allow the allies to open a front, to land troops, or acquire IPP’s.
Look at Portugal, if Spain is axis aligned, and the Americans need to land, Portugal is an option, if Spain is neutral, Soviet’s go to war against them, flip them to axis, but before Germany or Spain could react, the Allies land in Barcelona and Asturia-Valencia, locking the Iberian peninsula down and having an immediate front line in Europe in good defensive terrain.
It takes axis pressure off of the Soviets, and gives them breathing room.
