Id say that the axis, despite being down…26, give or take, do not need extra IPCs, though it wouldnt totally unbalance the game if they did. They just half to take advantage of things like the british being so spread out.

RE: Newbie needs help countering Russian Black Sea Sub Build
Hmm…Its interesting, I just finished a game and a reletivly similer chain of events happend throughout. My counter to a black sea sub is a simple mediterain destroyer. More often than not, the destroyer wins in combat, espeically on the offensive, so the sub wasnt able to inpact beyond me burning those 8 IPCs.
On the other side of the world, in the pacific, the US had been mostly fighting there early in the game, though I too was able to hold him back, while grabbing control of india, austraila and new zealand. Eventually I managed to force his navy to the north and south parts of the pacific, allowing me to sneak a transport in to capture Panama, effectivly stopping him from retreating out of the pacific. After a grueling fight with some awful roleing on my part, I had won the pacific, and was able to launch amphibous attacks against Los Angelas. At this point I had eight-8-victory locations. Supprising enough, My overwhelming forces couldnt breach The eastern States, so I bunkered down on the West Coast, building a factory.
My only chance of losing was if The Russians or British Managed to take one of my Germany Cities. It wouldnt be too huge or a loss if France or Italy fell, but if Berlin came crashing down, the other too would follow suite, at least, in this situation. After a few turns of mobilization and massing of troops, I realised my defense in Europe wasnt going to be able to hold out for much longer, but Washington wasnt going down anytime soon.
My last strategy was to launch my excess Japanese ships into the Atlantic. I changed my scheme of production at LA to more defensive choices, because I was not going to try taking down Washington again. After Two turns battle in the Atlantic, I finished off his British Fleets, and Launched the amphibious attacks onGreat Britain. The forces there were more focused on offensive purposes, so, with combined armies from france I was able invade and capture London. Game set and match. No thanks to his black sea strategies or Pacific assaults.
