Italy: Do you need this?
I have found it’s still very difficult for Germany to survive if Russia, Britain and USA team up.
The primary reason for this is the difficulty in sustaining a German navy. Even at 6 IPC each, subs are expensive when you need to buy tanks and fighters every round.
That being said, I won my first game playing the Axis. I was aided by my opponent’s poor play as he ignored Japan. My Japanese units conquered Western USA, Central USA, Mexico, Western and Eastern Canada and it was over.
Regarding Ships. Ships are organized by size/cost. The more the ship costs the bigger the size of the mold/unit is.
The two that are hardest to distinguish is the cruiser and destroyer. The destroyer is the cheaper of the two, and therefore also the smaller of the two.
If you are confused - just line up one of each type of all the ships somewhere off to the side, so you can see the differences.
My friend was Axis and myself the Allies. I had just taken Germany with Uk and USA while he was trying to invade russia. oh I should mention he was playing the game and watching TV at the same time. he started building up japan with transports armed with tanks infantry and artillery, 6 loaded transports sitting in
on the coast line of japan. so i put a battleship in 55. on his next turn he moved all 6 loaded transports to zone 57 with out any navel escorts. of course on my turn i moved the battleship into zone 57 with his transports baaaam all gone he looked up at me and said ( where the heck did that come from ? how the heck can Axis win when the allies have cloaking and stealth abbilites ? LOL )
I think he will NOT be watching TV while playing next time, what do you think ? ? ? LOL
