opening map, looks like rough terrain thru out the map. 2 oil, 1 raw right by my capital.

Meeting the neighbors. The Empire shows it's ugly head, too close to my capital for comfort

Met my other neighbors NEW UNION, the Empire is pushing south crowding me. so far i only control 1 RAW site, need more. I built a cargo ship and landed 2 units behind the empire units and have 2 more units in route. Plan is too cut off the southern empire units at the narrowest part of the land mass and cut there supply. I only see 1 weak New Union unit holding a city, maybe i can get the city before they reinforce it.

I cut off the southern Empire forces and managed to take the city from New Union before they reinforced it.

plan is too reinforce the northern boundary with the Empire and keep those troops cut off, dispose of pocketed troops and then push north.

Still only seen 2 units from the New Union, the weak unit i kicked out of the city and a cargo ship.

The Empire continues to push south, maybe they haven't got the word yet that there cut off. the Empire did cut off my new city.Haven't seen much from New Union, which is good because i don't have the troops yet to shuttle over there. the terrain is brutal, i don't think i'll be investing in any armor. My armored cars are only good fighting on the roads.

plan is to hold against the Empire down south and reinforce the northern line and keep them bottled up and finish them off when there readiness drops.

i'll take a wait and see attitude with the New Union.

Tech investment.

the terrain is rough, no tank investment coming. going to invest in Artillery, planes, cruiser, but for sure going to upgrade my infantry troops.

Reinforced northern line, southern empire troops dying on the vine.Will clear out the pockets and then shift some troops to the west in case New Union gets froggy. Not much action from New Union yet.
then push north against The Empire. Need to clean up some C&C issues, still only have my Supreme HQ handling everything.

Cleaned out the pockets of Empire troops, shifted forces west and am engaged with New Union forces now also. Claimed a level3 raw from New Union. Massing troops at northern border with the empire, new HQ now running the northern empire task force, ready to push north.

2 months later we finally cracked the line and have started pushing north. Had to bring alot of Artillery and some cruisers and land troops behind there lines to get it done. No sealing the doorway now. I finally was able to tech my infantry up to level 2. I will probably gather supply and PP's and auto upgrade all my infantry to level 2, so i'll have to sit and hold for a couple turns so there readiness goes back up.

Situation to the west on "the road" . Took an oil from New Union and am pushing down the road not meeting much heavy resistance. New HQ running western task force.

Hard and slow going, but the noose is tightening on the empires capital city Vienna. Pound them with artillery to soften them up and attack the weak links. I have several planes but they have alot of flak mixed in, so i have to be selective when i fly missions. I also have my cruisers blocking Vienna.

Attempting to split the defenders. Some of my units are getting ground down, it's been a hard slog.
My cruisers continue to do anti-supply work.

Western task force:

the units on "the road" were getting hammered by heavy arty, i pulled them back. Switched to making my push farther inland and my cruiser is blocking there city.

Split the defenders of Vienna, how many more months until the city falls. Pulled my most worn down troops off the line and will combine units with near same experience level and hold them out of the fighting until there readiness returns.

After several months of reorging, combining units, and getting replacements and upgrading all my infantry to level3 were ready to finish this phase. Cleared out the pocketed vienna units, they managed to break the pocket 3 times. I finally landed some more troops to finish them off. I'm hammering them with artillery, can't risk my planes with all the flak 2 they have mixed in.

Front line western task force. No flak down here so i'm hammering them by air and the little arty i have down here. Still resupply troops in the dead zone by air.

Not pictured: Vienna about to fall

Both cities fall on the same turn. Just a matter of moping up and clearing out the remaining New Union forces. The Continent is mine.

While clearing the continent i'll be stocking up on invasion supplies, going to need more cargo ships
and cargo planes. Invested in paratroopers. Still have not put any PP into tanks, the terrain on the other land masses don't look anymore tank friendly then this one.

Continent cleared and plan for next phases complete. Gathering needed men, material, and supply for upcoming operation.

Nice AAR, clear pics with your plans drawn in.

You can use your Engineers to build roads, will cost you some raw but save on the oil and pp neede to build and fly your transporters.

**budd** -> RE: new AAR (10/29/2011 8:44:32 PM)

Yea i'm pretty bad about forgetting about my engineers leaving them idle while @ war. roads just cost EP and raw if i remember correctly.

The invasion prep continues, nothing worth a picture.
4 months in and i haven't quite got all my men and materials assembled. Only thing of note was i lost 4 cruisers while scouting the landing zones to planes, lesson learned . I figure 4 more months to get every thing assembled and then were off. I have 1 task force ready to go, just have to produce more cruisers for escort and supply lane protection. My paratroopers are ready to go, 4 units of 40 will be dropping. I added a small taskforce with the paratroopers to follow them up, engineers, infantry, and flak, hoping to build an airstrip pretty quick for air support. the first wave of transports will contain cavalry,infantry,engineers,arty,flak and a HQ. Second wave will contain a few armored cars and many more infantry and cavalry, which are now upgraded to level4. In hindsight while the prep was going on i should of dropped some units off to scout the area.

man logistics are tedious[;)] At some point my type A personality is just going to have to jump off and go. I keep thinking of things i forgot[:D] first need more cruisers, O they have planes, need flak, o forgot to load my HQ's with extra supply, maybe i should send more engineers, and so on and so on.

Josh -> RE: new AAR (10/30/2011 11:36:08 AM)

Nice AAR Budd. So you lost four cruisers to enemy planes? That's a bit odd cause usually cruisers are like Flak floating on water, planekillers. Or did your opponent overwhelm you with numbers? Like 40 planes to 4 cruisers.
Cruisers are my favorites, they build up Exp when you use them for shore bombardment, and then they are even more deadly against planes.
