Well the reason this came up is following Italy’s declaration on Russia and invasion of Russia, Germany did not declare on Russia, but moved forces into formerly Russian territory. Should Germany get the peacetime NO in that scenario?
Yes germany double dips here. They get the no for peace but their sub blocks the Russian no.
I am experiencing the above scenario in a game that is on hold till later after Turkey Day. I am playing Germany and Italy. I was able to DOW Russia on IT turn 2. I blitzed a tank from Romania through Eastern Poland and into Baltic States (both countries were void of any Russian unit). On German Turn 3 I am not going to DOW Russia. I am going to put a warship in SZ 124. I will move units into Baltic States and Eastern Poland. I will transport a load of two units into Baltic states from SZ 115 and be able to ignore the Russian cruiser and sub there because Germany is not at war with Russia. So Germany will get the bonus for not being at War with Russia and Russia will not get a bonus because of an Axis Warship in SZ 124.
In addition on Russia turn three they cannot attack Italian controlled Eastern Poland or Baltic States or the transport in SZ 115 because they cannot DOW Germany until Turn 4. So does all this ring true? If so it seems rather odd. But I would really enjoy being able to give this experience as a present to my Russia opponent.
Thank you for any replies.
We are back playing this scenario tonight. The Russian Player wants to attack only the Italian tank in Baltic and ignore the German units because he is not at war with Germany. Is this possible? Why or why not? Does a German unit moving into Italian controlled Russian territory (the Baltic) constitute a DOW? Why or why not?
