Wait? This means I might actually be playing and interpreting a rule CORRECTLY???
I’m sorry, this is a foreign experience….
Ok. Back from cloud 9.
Thank you guys all for assisting me in grasping this.
I’ll be back im sure with more questions.
Is it recommended that you attack zeasone 14 with 2 submarines, aswell as taking an infantry unit to land on gibraltar? This would destroy the brittish fighter, but since you will most likely lose your transport (and destroyer if you move it in to protect the transport).
Is it recommended to make a gamble and attack seazone 11 with just one submarine? I have previously played the 1942 version of the game and it got an exellent game guide for Germany, but I´m not sure what types of strategies you should try as Germany in this version of the game.
It depends on what R does.
If R has stacked West Russia with everything it has, then my G air can be used against the GB navy. I which case most likely 1 sub, 1 battleship, 2 fighters against sz8. 1 sub, 1 destroyer, 1 bomber and 1 fig vs sz14. Leaving a sub to attack sz11 with my fingers crossed!
But if R is daft enough to give me an opportunity that requires my G air, then I feel able to take some risks in the Atlantic, given Moscow’s anticipated speedy fall. sz8 - 1 battleship and 2 subs. sz 14 - just the sub, keeping the destroyer back. If I am feeling particularly lucky I use just 1 sub in sz8 and the other against sz11, which avoids my having 2 subs in one sz for the GB destroyer to target with air support.
I think two subs to 14 is definitely the way to go. Sink a carrier and not have to fight the fighter!
I also think Africa is not worth the effort for Germany, so its worth dumping a unit in Gibraltar is worth taking away a UK fighter. Even though it’ll cost you the transport, if you’re not going to go for Africa, its an acceptable loss. (I even sometimes tank the armor from Africa and put it in Gibraltar. Sure I’m stranding a tank instead of any infantry, but its a tank that won’t to any more than have a 50-50 chance of knocking out an allied infantry when it is attacked, so I might as well waste the tank instead of an infantry from Europe.)
If your strategy involves pushing Africa or the Middle East with Germany, I still think its worth going after that carrier, but better to save your transport and let that UK fighter live to fight another day.
