1st: i have to clarify something: i never, i repeat, never, said that i would go to seazone 115. i just asked if a naval base could be used in that zone and 127. that is all. i do not understand why you always mention that! grin
Sorry my mistake, but caused by your inaccuracy
as germany i wipe out all of the british fleet surrounding the uk.
OK got that
so there is no destroyer to attack with
Sure there is, take the one along with the carrier of Gibraltar :roll:
and the three or four time i played germany the battleship never got hit
But defenders got 2x 50% chances, so one hit would be average.
this means you have three fighters, a tactical bomber and a carrier to attack a german fleet consisting of destroyer, cruiser, battleship.
add the destroyer
maybe a german carrier is a good choice.
and erase maybe
but one fact is clear, you can only attack one navy! not both. repelling a german sealion or doing taranto raid? what would you do?
If you threat Sea Lion (with your original builds) on G1,
I would surely wipe out the german fleet.
leaving taranto raid means giving the italian everything he wants to have. two transports, a battleship etc. no difficult buys, just troops…which means an easier access to africa an helping germany out in russia as well.
With no Taranto Raid the Italian will become strong, but never strong enough to hold of the US (if it goes KIF), I think if germany is “weak” (because complete G1 buy is lost) Italy can´t win the Game for the Axis.
i say, minimum two planes, a carrier damaged with no option of salvation… evil giving the german time to recover…italy strong in the med etc. i think you get it…
I would rather sacrifice the carrier and save the planes, the carrier would only be prey for the luftwaffe or (remaining) subs.
okay. then lets assume this: G1 buy is a carrier and two transports. G2 fleet moves to seazone 127 (this means that the british attack got repelled nor never occured). so it is obvious that the german fleet has to return to seazone 112. so i would buy 2 subs instead of one as germany in G2. maybe in G3 as well
Ok lets say UK got frightend and UK1 build only Inf,
gathering fleet at Sz91 (gibraltar) or sz106 (canda), move the cursier from 85 on its way north (gibraltar at best at UK2). This move I make everytime by the way, so no special to counter your operation sea bear
So on G2 I see that you move to 127, so I move my fleet to 109 and build 3-4 subs,
so 1 carrier + 2 Destroyer (1 form canada) 3 subs , 3 fighters , 1 tactical and maybe the cruiser if moved to gibralter on UK2 and survied until UK3.
So 1x0 , 5x2 , 3-4x3 , 1x4 (11-12Hits)
This against 1 Cruiser 1 Battleship 1 carrier 2 Fighters and 2-4 subs
2-4x1 1x2 , 1x3 , 3x4 (with 9-11 Hits)
Destroyer for defend (and against sub build on UK2) would be better choice.
But anyway I admit that would be hard (because the subs soak hits)for UK,
so better attack on UK1 I think. But if you move again to sz127 on G4 and have to return to sz127 on G5 than its over b/c of the US.
Or your fleet stays in 127 (where it is of little use).
