That fig to egy move is devastating when it works. If Germany doesn’t take Egypt, then UK gets the ez fleet kill on UK2. It’s an interesting gamble, but it has potential to go wrong if Ukr doesn’t go Russia’s way or if Germany gets a lucky roll in Egy.
It certainly stretches Germany out and forces them to take tons of risks or omit a major battle like SZ2.
Russian fighter in Anglo-Egypt Sudan?
(Re: German 2 inf / 1 art / 1 tank / 1 fighter vs AES forces)with the additional fighter: [52.6% Attacker, 8.7% Tie, 18IPCs lost]
61% chance Russia shot itself in the ass.
