I’ve been lurking around here for a little while now and I owe my first a&a victories at least partially to you guys, props!
In the department of Germany, USSR and Japan I’ve read amazing things that really helped form a new perspective of the playing field. But I kind of lack these insights regarding the UK and USA, strategies usually have " well then the UK or US can land here" type of element in them but never specifics and certainly not in the level of detail of some german or russian strategies.
The problem I face in allied games is that the USA doesn’t really influence a lot the game. Its hard to do anyting in the pacific due to the massive fleet buildup needed to achieve anything and it takes a very long time before US land forces can land in a continious stream in any european or africa zone.
Usually I move my land forces to canada, place transports in the sea there. Continue to buy transports and land units and eventually get some sort of transport train going on with 4 transports at the sea at norway/algeria/western europe and 4 at canada. But I think it takes too long to build up and it takes too long to make any sort of difference
So what should the US do?
In my head I am playing with the idea of building fighters, flying them to england the next turn and to any frontline russian zone the turn after. Eventually you get a stream of 3/4 fighters going into the frontline. This should make it really hard to take out any russian stack.
The US can get involved a lot faster and strenghten crucial stacks. Isn’ t this an effective way of putting those US IPCs to work ?
Another idea that doesn’ t want to leave my head is investing heavy in bombers and start strategic bombardments on germany. With 5 bombers you can hit him for anywhere between 5 and 30 ipcs, expected value being 15.
please tell me what you guys think you should do with america.
