OK, I had some time to look over the moves thus far with the maps….
I see some issues for the allies.
UK staying at the peripherial is not good. I think UK fell for the bait in sz7 big time. I am not sure why UK wouldn’t load 2 inf from australia on their sz40 tpt.
Also, why is there a UK tpt in sz8 and not sz7?
Or why was the new DD not added to sz8 as well?
G2, Germany can move to sz14, add some tpts and be is position to move strongly into the caucasus on G3… .without losing much (if any) tempo. Also, Africa can yield Germany lots of quick cash without any extra units
I see a G2 buy of 2 tpts, 9 inf, tank. This would enable a strong counter to an allied western europe landing UK2/US2 (inf, art could be brought back to SE from algeria)
WHY was the SZ 59 tpt not sunk? Say good bye to 6 inf in buryatia. Russia does not need a second front opened, and Japan should do just that.
Japan should land all their ftrs in range of caucasus on J2… I do not believe that Russian winter can even hold off the German attack on G3 there. Japanese fighters can reinforce the german units once they taken (or moved in unopposed).
This game is set-up for a quick(er) axis game push. US ftr buy may not be bad based on the need to get defense in the game to russia as quickly as possible.
