As I’m really new to AA50 42ED, is Italy as weak as I think they are? On UK1, the British can pull out of Egypt and instead stack Trans-Jordan. (I’m assuming the Indian ships are no more). Unless Germany takes Gibraltar, Italy only collects for one NO on Italy 1. The UK can land their two fighters in French West Africa and land the Aussie plane on India for a total force of 5 inf, 1 art, 1 tank, 4 fighters, the starting bomber + possible purchased bomber ALL in range of Egypt on UK2. For Egypt to hold, Japan and or Germany will need to commit fighters. Then rounds 2 and 3, both Allies can land Algeria and continue to hold T-J. If they do, then Italy won’t collect for either NO in the foreseeable future and will struggle to get anything out of Africa.
Am I missing something, or is this necessary to counter Russia’s weakness(Or maybe I’m just playing Russia poorly)?
