Here’s my post as far as how I deal with Toranto or not… It as most of you stated what Germany dose round 1.
Ok if seazone 110 dosnt get attacked I tend to Consolidate my navy from 110 with 98 at seazone 92. If they do attack 110 it still won’t matter I feel this idea is a good one. I tend never to scramble for 110 unless the odds are in my favor.
For me it’s about 109 if he dosnt bring a Airforce to take it out I will scramble even if he hits with the sub I’ll have 4 planes to scramble to save the transport.
I use my Fighter and tactical bomber to take out the destroyer in Malta and Non combat move my Aircraft carrier and Cruser and transport to Seazone 92 I pick up with my transport the 1 infantry and AA and drop it off in Algeria I move my destroyer from 98 to seazone 94 as a blocker incase he wants to Invade Algeria it takes away his crusers and battleships shore Bombardment.
I also further renforce it with the transport from 109 to 92 with 1 infantry and 1 AA from Scotland I also fly down a fighter from United Kingdom to Algeria. And a Fighter from Gibralter. Basicaly setting up Algeria with 3 Infantry 2 Aa and 2 Fighters.
The reason for having Algeria is so that turn 2 Germany can not attack seazone 92 with its Airforce and have somewhere to land. And the Destroyer to further Block Italy’s shore bombardment and it dosnt have the numbers to try to take it .
I leave the carrier with 1 spot open only incase Italy leaves a Blocker in seazone 93 I can send down the French fighter to destroy it and land on the Carrier.
Also by holding seazone 92 I can still move 3 spaces back to 110 and block a Sealion and have Germany further invest it’s Airforce to take out my Fleat and less in England. Or I can go on the offensive if Germany dosnt show Sealion and since any blocker isn’t there I can cause havoc by landing anywhere touching seazone 95,96,97…
Egypt will be safe cause I consolidate all my units in Egypt and again Italy can not take it turn one. And turn 2 I can use the Destroyer as a blocker from 81 or take out his navy with very minimal loss’s
My buys are for England round 1 is 7 infantry and 1 Transport … The transport to South Africa
And the 7 infantry as home defense at minimal there’s still 2 planes left in England with 7 extra men at the end of turn one. With England’s navy still intact and a way to detour bout a Sealion and eventualy take out Italy’s navy.
I forgot to mention that I tend to take England’s Pacific Fleat and bring it to the med and I use the French ship as a blocker off the coast of India. That way I still have a second transport from Calcuta that if I’m feeling frogy further asure that I have enough to defend Africa by droping off an infantry and Artiliary in Somalia and having the cruser as shore Bombardment and turn 2 I bring the transport up from South Africa and my Calcuta units to further renforce Egypt or retreat to Anglo-Egypt and get it back on the counter offensive.
I hope this helps.
