I’d be in favor of changing the Russian NOs to something more historic anyway - not that Larry ever agreed with me.
Russian NO 1: SZ 125/Arkhangelsk - 5 IPC - Lend Lease
Russian NO 2: Leningrad - 5 IPC - retainership of Russias only real European style city, a major port for Russia and Russian pride
Russian NO 3: Stalingrad - 5 IPC - maintenance of industrial capacity, Named after leader of Russia (Russian Pride)
Russian NO 4: Finland + Norway - 5 IPC (has to be owned by Russia, not an allied nation!) - conquering of historical enemy nations
Russian NO 5: Poland + East Poland + Baltic States - 5 IPC (has to be owned by Russia, not an allied nation!) - conquering of historical enemy nations
game effects? who’s going to try and tell me that Russia does not need 10 IPC it can count on for the first few rounds of the game just to keep Germany from taking Moscow in the first 5-9 rounds? I’d say with the changes limit it so that American, British, French and Anzac forces cannot enter any red territory or Russian controlled territory unless Stalingrad OR Leningrad OR Moscow are controlled by the Axis.
i like these NO’s quite a lot!
