If the fighters die, Taranto is weakened.
Its a small exaggeration, a couple of my bombers always die, you’re going to want 6. And I agree with you im building mechs and tanks and going east.
Gargantua said hes buying 6 tanks with Russia, I haven’t tried that. Seems like so few infantry you only have like 20-23? or so to start with its tiny.
I’m going to get routed south in my current game (167 Axis) but im still going to take novogrod on G3 with ease, whatever his posture that’s a gimme. Italy has 3 tanks and 3 mechs on the continent. Attacking the Syrian air stack left after Taranto wasn’t a good idea I lost 2 bombers.
