RE: Need help : UK is dead before they even start…
I wouldn’t be too sure about an Indian IC. As Japan, I’ve been able to take India quite easily during J1, without losing too much power elsewhere.
Japan has two fighters on the mainland, both of which can immediately attack India. There’s also a bomber on the main island that is in range. Also, one tranny with the 2inf 1ftr in the Philipines, backed by the 1AC 1BB 1ftr by the Caroline Islands (the boats should not be able to make it: the AC will allow the 2ftr to land after attacking the tranny), means it can destroy the British tranny (and/or sub) that could possibly be defending the Indian coast at that point, and land its troops for a total of 4inf 2ftr 1bmr of attacking forces against a British maximum of 2inf 1ftr defending forces.
Even if Russia devotes its entire initial air force to India’s defence, the end result will be 2inf 3ftr of defence, and that still doesn’t quite stack up to Japan’s invading army (and at the cost of Russia’s air force).
Attacking FIC wouldn’t be efficient, either. Even if you dice-whipped Japan and took FIC, the tranny from Philipines would still be a threat, and could easily claim the now-defenseless India, and its IC. (not to mention the substantial forces that can easily reclaim French Indo-China)
So there ya go. Japan definitely can, and probably will, take India by the end of the first round. (unless the UK gets a lot of help from its allies, and even then, it’s iffy) Then, Japan can use the IC to stage against China or Russia, while coming from the northeast. It’s a significant loss in resources for the UK, and a significant gain for Japan.
Correct me if I’m wrong. This is just from analysing the starting position of each country. I may have missed something. ><;
