You are an underdog in that battle, and if you lose or even draw you have no planes to defend England and Germany still has three transports. UK will fall terribly turn three, taking poor Canada with it. sad
Yeah, perhaps, it all depends on the rolls. But you know what, at least I am somebody on this Forum who will put up a fight. I am like Churchill in this game. I know I am gonna have casualties and loose units and I don’t pussyfoot around to try and keep my precious stacks alive while my enemy gets the advantage. Maybe some of you should read some Sun Tzu and play REAL games with REAL dice against opponents you are REALLY in front of instead of all this email crap.
I ask you this who think a British counter attack to be futile. What would you do instead? Assuming you are trying to protect your airpower ( and don’t forget the two aircraft, one TAC and one Fighter, you have on the carrier next to Gibraltar)
would you just sit there and polish you pretty fighters for the Hun to blow them up the next day? If you would, you and Neville (Pussy) Chamberlain would become fast friends.
I wouldn’t attack if the odds were grossly out of favor, but if they were equal or close to it, then I will hit your Kriegsmarine and take some of them to the bottom. “Fortune Favors the Bold”, the man who said that never lost a battle.
