good points here from all, when we talk about Italy entering the war, I am finding that the trigger can be
the invasion of Norway and Denmark, with Italy sitting at 75% or above, and Lux being DoW also, that when the German
turn is finished in April I think, Italy goes balistic, and in the war immediately before the allied turn
Now not only do the Allies have the initiative, but any chance of hiding the RM is basically gone.
I have seen Italy at 82% by dec 1939 or jan 40, all from the allies abandoning french N afr, syria and even Gib.
I think minefields around naval bases is good, helgoland in kiel area, gib, eng channel and such.
Gulf of Finalnd is a great example, but I also think the WR/Dip effects should apply to neighboring countries in
a fashion, such as french or Uk fleets go into adriatic, yugo would be affected to the axis, same w norway, especially
since the Norway convoy route takes a beating from T1, when they were actually Norwegian ships.
Now what about inherent Uboats, like the type II coastal uboats that were defending norway convoys?
Also whats the thought that italy recieves either the upgrade to aquilia CV from the Roma, but what about the other 3 keels
laid by Italy in early 1939, littorio and 2 other sister ships?
