Inspired by the 1947 scenario. It's supposed to be a fun scenario, with equal chances of victory.
So the setting is this:
Axis 'win' WW2. In 1946 Hitler dies and this cause Germany to go into 'chaos' as power blocks struggle for control. Allies use this to mobilise their forces and in 1947 launch their attack.
The Axis minors and puppets start mobilised, as they are the first ones to see the dangers. Germany starts with SS units mobilised but partly in re-org. Rest of Axis units mobilise within first 20 turns. Also German replacements start from turn 10.
All nationalities have their own squads. This is of course the equipment that comes in big numbers, ie. rifle squads, but not ferry-bridging squads.
Also all axis minors reconstruct in their own capitals. Which means that once they are overrun their unit will no longer reconstruct, and since their equipment is nation specific there is no need to toy with replacement changes.
Untis will be divisions and brigades. Time scale one turn = one week, hex 20kms.
My problem is, how to divide the east and how to make the OOB's.
For example I figured Germany will have around 300 infantry divisions and 38 SS Panzer divisions...but what else? Flak divisions but how many? Artillery and werfer brigades probaply...but again, how many? Mechanized divisions? Motorised divisions?
Anyways, the minor axis. This is how I figured it to look like:
Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Ukraine, Italy
Axis puppets(ie. poor quality units):
White Russia(St. Petersburg to Stalingrad...a buffer zone), France, Greece, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Yugoslavia
And what about Spain and Turkey?
And regarding the puppets, once they fall to allies their armies will mobilise. I figured it will take about a year for those armies to be 'built', in other words 5 turns. This means Axis has to defend those countries or risk reinforcing the allies heavily.
Here's an example of what a german infantry division would look like:
36 x german engineer squads
9 x motorcycle squads
261 x german rifle squads
21 x german SMG squad
110 x HMG
20 x 75mm ig
6 x 150mm ig
54 x 81mm mortar
9 x ferry-bridging squad
24 x 105mm howitzer
12 x 150mm howitzer
14 x Hetzer or Stug IIIG
12 x 120mm mortar
9 x 50mm ATG
21 x 75mm ATG
12 x truck 20mm AA
42 x halftracks
3 x armoured car
276 x truck
504 x horse team
0/282 x german assault squads
Rifle and SMG squads switch to Assault squads starting in 1948
total of 282 assault squads
The trucks and horse teams will probaply be less...for gameplay purposes.
