Hello fellow wargamers
Played the game on field marshal level and got decisives on the previous scenarios. Now Sea lion was in order.
I figured that I might as well invest heavily on airforces as the battle for Britain historically was all about air superiority.
So i started with buying both new scenario units as fighters. With my three older core fighters and the aux fighter it gave me 6 fighters to start with. I also had 1 strat bomber and three tac bombers in core. No need for many land units.
only reinforced (and elite reinforced my air units at deployment phase).
Now gaining air and naval superiority only took about four turns (there might be the occasional allied tac bomber flying in later turns, but thats not much of a problem).
Then I invaded the coast. My paras secured one (non objective) city in the north in case I needed extra core to buy on land and the central airfield.
I managed in the end to score a marginal victory 4 turns before the end. Now I could probably have squeezed the decisive If i had been two turns faster, but I think that would have cost me half my core i didn't go for that.

And now the debriefing ... The Germans have to pull back because of an imminent counterattack???
eeeeehhmmm...London has fallen, the royal navy is on the run, the airforce is destroyed and my complete core force is running rampant on the map. That does sound a bit odd...

Maybe I will play the scenario again just to see what happens if you get the decisive victory, but has anyone scored the decisive in 1940 Sea Lion on field marshal level yet? and what happens then???
I am curious what the next scenario will be...USA in 1940 maybe?

And for Slitherine games designers: please make it *slightly* more logical on a strategic scale. I don't think it would be historically possible if the Germans beat the Brits in 1940 and the USA is not even in the war yet, that a great counter offensive will be launched from the North.
Although some of my Scottish friends might seriously disagree on that point ;)
