TDJ that’s classic. Mr. T. says “Tanks are strong!” Is that from the Caspian Sub paper?
Blitz2: It never hurts to try but I would have to agree with both Dan and TDJ, buy ground forces.
It might work in AA 1942 but not really in revised?
It should be even worst in AA42: 1 less hit and 3 less dice points. Germany could ignore it, of course, and even mimic building tons of navy. Since you, as soviet, gave them time in east, Germany could buy a uber fleet to create havoc in allied fleets. A powerful german combo would be: take gib, kill z2 or z1, send 2 subs to English channel, buy, say, ac, bb, 2 inf, tons of subs or any other wicked combo (join fleets round 2 or 3, ouch!). UK will struggle to keep the pace, and USA cannot join the fight and also buy enough land guys to protect their rear/contest Africa (silly Bering strait icecap ) OR germans could still do the moves and simply make a tank rush while Japan does the same
In Revised, it could be interesting trying, but without a bid. I doubt it can work by the way, it’s just slightly better
A note: stick to Revised, it’s better than AA42 (KFJ is viable and also Polar Express)
