    Germans round 2

    I think I can explain how I think before commencing battles.

    Regarding the purchase G will have 3 subs that will be able to stay out of touch from des (unless there’ll be a J2DOW), hence no subs need to be bought this turn.

    I’m content with 1 des for fleet, eyeing the pesky russian sub in z125. Sinking it is valuable, since it may later work as can-opener for US/UK.

    I considered a carrier in order to SBR London, but make priority of pansar (12 mech, 1 tank) for Barbarossa. Also, the two bombers are needed down south. The Blitz is fun, but would risk valuable air for no real benefit. UK will likely anyway focus production to Africa and ME, unless G goes for a Sea Lion.

    SL is not really an option for me at this stage, since it’s far too costly and would take the edge away against Russia. Crushia is of the highest importance, so harrassing UK will sadly have to wait.

    2 inf will be built in WG to keep the tr active and creating threats.


  • The battles will be z96 taking out the UK cr and Greece, which is to help Italy out.

    If the cr hits a tac will be taken as casualty. All available air will land in Alexandria, to stabilize the italian stack there.

    I’m gambling the defenders of Greece won’t roll 4/4. Counting on 1/4, but also 2/4 is not unlikely. Allocating 3 inf for the attack should be enough for soaking casualties. The attack has a power of 24, so will hopefully get 4 hits or more and wipe out the opposition in one swift strike. The other 2 inf will go to Romania.

    Taking Greece with G has the upside of having an easier time of building an ab there if need be.

  • z96 was pretty sick. Two battle rounds without any hits, then both sides hit 1 on the third go. Especially weird for G, since there was power 13 against 3.

    Had to take the tac as casualty, since I need to maximize the defenses of Alexandria. It’s slightly shaky, but atleast has 75-80 % on the defense with a slightly negative TUV-swing for the aggressor during a max attack. Should be very bad for UK if such an attack fails.

    Luckily enough there were no casualties in Greece. The opposition was simply overwhelmed by the terrifying nazi advance.

    Have to point out the sneaky move of putting a german inf on the italian tr. The idea is to be able to take both Cyprus and Crete with only having to utilize 1 tr. This would be more troublesome if the french des was in striking range of z98, but could be countered by blocking. Then it would however begin to be a more expensive investment than the efforts worth.

    Since R doesn’t have its pansar available to pressure the Baltic states and 3 inf weren’t placed in Leningrad it will be sufficient to clamp down there with pansar. Therefore all inf and art move to Romania. Then there’s the option of entering Bessarabia or E Poland.

    Both routes have merit. The former pressures Ukraine and the mIC there, while the latter is a more formidable route to Moscow. Now G will rely heavily on the italian can-openers moving in.

    Now Russia may look over its defensive positioning. From the looks of it a G3DOW is neatly prepared.

  • my very traditional proposal … since evidently Hitler already has Barbarossa in mind

    the sub from sz125 I try to move him away for the moment … I might need somewhere else (I could think of dissuading the attack by keeping a fighter there)

    other possibilities? … opinions?

    PS

    the fast means for now I still keep them ready for a possible intervention in China


  • 2021

    @trulpen @Avner

    Sorry, been away from this for a few turns, I’ll try to catch up and probably ask some stupid questions.

    Looking at the proposed Russia move it looks good to me against a possible G2 DOW but I would assume it’ll probably be on G3 so we keeping an eye on where we want to be for that.

    The fast movers in Kazakhstan are interesting, in the few BM games I’ve played I’ve put fast movers in Novgorod to try to slow down the advance in the north but still be able to pull out without getting trapped. I suppose the thought here is that those units can do more good slowing the Japanese in China than slowing the Germans in Russia, but they can still get back to Moscow when needed?

  • 2021

    @trulpen @Avner

    I’ve assumed there is nothing funky planned for them in the Middle East.


  • By now it will be a Dow in G3 … but I can still keep the fast means at a distance I think … for a possible defense of Moscow they should be able to go back in case

  • 2021

    @avner The purchase is all infantry with an artillery, is it the plan to accumulate as much infantry as possible over the next few turns?


  • @flyingbadger

    I would say yes since Hitler seems to me willing to bet on Moscow …

    Or am I wrong?

  • 2021

    @avner Are we going to try and stall the fall of Novgorod by placing 3 infantry there?

  • Ok, time for some feedback then.

    Like I pointed out after R1, if only inf had been bought, Russia would be able to mobilize 13 inf R3. At this stage the art won’t matter as counter-measure against a more powerful german army, so one more inf for defense would be more valuable. Sometimes it’s a close call, so might matter.

    The placement of 3 inf in Novgorod doesn’t hamper the german advance much. If Italy grabs the Baltic states, then G can attack with 2 inf, 2 mech, 1 fig, 2 tac.

    Sure, it would mean sacrificing a tr, but looks to be worth it. Any russians in the north are dead and would be of more use in and around Moscow.

    One possibility to deny this opportunity would be to block the Baltic states with atleast 3 inf. However, that also gets a bit expensive. Don’t think Russia can afford it.

    There has not been a DOW between Russia and Japan yet. Both definitely prefer the other to DOW. With the big stack leaving west, it does look like there might be time for a northern intrusion at some stage.

    Japan’s priority right now is to secure China and the islands, so that idea will have to wait.

    I like to keep atleast 12 inf, 2 aa around for a possible landing of US-troops in Korea. Then the russian support will be very valuable support. Also keeping Japan on its toes has some worth. As it looks now, Japan can relax a bit from relieved pressure from the north and can focus whole-heartedly towards the south.

  • Feels like a bit of waste to attack 1 inf with a ton of air, but I’m aiming at a J2DOW so it has no other use at the moment.

    Noticed I had slipped in the previous turn and not moved over 1 inf, 1 tank to Korea with the tr from z20. This is something I always do (unless something exceptional appears in the north). Since this is a tutor game mainly for the learning experience, I trust it’s ok.

    Annexed FIC, losing 8 IPC of income, but I really don’t like UK-Pac to get it since it’s pro-axis now. The loss of income can then be said to be 6 IPC. Being able to build a mIC there makes the loss more of an investment, which I think is well worth it.

    Building 3 inf in Shantung, 1 inf, 1 marine in Tokyo and 1 tr, 1 ac in z6.

    The marine makes cr and bs better and this particular marine will have an important task of grabbing Guam. It’s important to get the mobilization of fleet going and in the early rounds carriers are the absolute best for Japan (not underestimating the need of des and sub). The reason is being able to utilize all that abundant air-force.

    Normally a combo of ac + 2 air costs 36-38 IPC, but for Japan it will only cost 16 IPC until about 10 carriers have been reached.

    Having a viable fleet to be able to contest the Pacific is key to Japans success. Especially trying to keep control of the DEI is of outmost importance, but also pressuring the USN and not allowing it to have its way too easily is necessary.

    Doing a bit of a gamble in Kweichow, taunting the chinese to attack. If an eventual attack goes according to probability (55 %, but -6 TUV), it’s a good outcome for Japan, getting rid of a lot of pesky chinese troops and being able to control Yunnan more readily.

    If China dare not attack, then another point of the maneuver is to pressure the chinese stack to abandon Szechwan, also with the benifit of getting solid control of Yunnan.

    I considered boosting my stack with the mech and beating back the guerilla with air only. I choose not to, partly because of the 1/6 probability of losing air and partly because I want to reserve the mech for an attack on Kwangtung.

  • Noticed I missed to move 1 inf from Jehol to Chahar, despite all the previous talk of guerilla. Corrected it with the last post.

    @trulpen said in Tutor game: trulpen (X) vs Avner [and everyone else] (A+23) BM3:

    I like to keep atleast 12 inf, 2 aa around for a possible landing of US-troops in Korea. Then the russian support will be very valuable support. Also keeping Japan on its toes has some worth. As it looks now, Japan can relax a bit from relieved pressure from the north and can focus whole-heartedly towards the south.

    Is it the all or nothing with the Siberian units? Either bring them all back or leave them all there for the purposes dicussed previously, I’d guess if you dilute them then they become much less effective and easier for Germany or Japan to eliminate.
