i’m pretty sure the money russia get’s in the convoy is supposed to be from the usa, The far east money isn’t represented too well. They don’t get it when archangel falls because this is where the allies landed their supplies.
if the game were 98% realistic, it would have to start earlier. If it were 98% realistic, and it started in 1941 germany would win since they wouldn’t make the same mistakes they did in the real war. I could argue that the allies made most of their terrible mistakes before the war started. Germany made a few key mistakes once the war was underway that cost them the war.
regardless, it’s a fun game
i just played a game that took 15 turns (i finally got moscow)
i think it was 73 inf 24 rtl 39 arm attacking 86 infantry 16 rtl and 22 ftrs
obviously the allies sent in fighters! Had they sent a few more he certainly could have, instead he build a large ineffective fleet, i would have lost (i took moscow with 19 arm))
if you figure that germany has 2x the production of russia, but i’m considering the strategy where the allies mainly build fighters, and send them all to moscow russia bids armor with the bid so they can get finland and norway asap, then infantry so if leningrad falls, the allies can land in norway instead) The usa can build 3 fighters a turn, the uk 2, this is the same as 10 infantry, or 30 ipc’s. At this rate, you can almost say it’s russia against germany, russia get’s 54 ipc’s a turn, germany get’s 40. remember russia has finland and norway. Of course it is even harder for germany since moscow is 4 turns away. All russia has to do is hold out, eventually with 30-40 fighters, they can kill the german stack… or if they have enough to hold a few turns, the allies can build their fleet, or whatever, the allies are cashing out extremely high.
you can build a few bombers as allies, and leave leningrad and stalingrad open (germany takes, sbr it!) If germany sends into ME, russia just get’s stronger (i personally thing sending there is a waste of troops). Usa and uk have to build subs and stuff the first turn or so to get the convoys though. Not really sure, but it might work. I’ll try it my next game.
@Conni_Hu Because you asked for a non-specific answer:
Overview: You need to make a beeline for Moscow ASAP, but also make sure to scoop up Leningrad along the way, as it is the main point the Western Allies will attempt to land in to reinforce the Soviets. Making any effort to attack southern Russia or North Africa (beyond just using the units you began the game with in those areas) is ill-advised, as capturing Moscow will effectively end the game due to the USSR no longer being able to collect income or field an army.
Round 1: Attack East Poland and Baltic States with everything that can reach. More should go to Baltic States.
Round 2: Attack Belorussia and Leningrad with everything that can reach. Most of your troops should go to Belorussia.
Round 3: Attack Moscow with everything that can reach.
What you do in other areas of the map is outside of the scope of your question, but you should be taking steps to slow down the USA/UK Navies.
If this answer is too in-depth for you, I apologize. Please refer to just the “overview” for the shortest possible explanation.
