Yup, it did.
I've only seen it happen on weak and/or very low morale/readiness units and against air units.

The only difference here I note is that the American BB has a pip of experience and is at level 1 vs. the UK BBs which don't have the pip of experience.
Not sure of the Panzer's morale/readiness before I started bombarding it, but the American BB was last of the 4 to bombard.

It's kind of funny, because when I was using the same 4 Battleships against an Italian unit in Albania/Yugo I never did any strength damage in 5-7 turns of constant bombardment against a Corps.

Maybe supply level has something to do with it too?

My Panzer had high supply and normal morale so this was unexpected. There is probably a very small chance that this can happen and now it did.

Yes, it did.

I suspect a major factor was the price of going all out for the Axis high water mark. In particular: The early end of Tech investment (and I suspect minimal German Industrial investment) along with ignoring Greece.

Oddly, Germany's morale was still higher (prior to the loss Dusseldorf) than the UK's. There appears no way to get the UK's morale back. They didn't loose any battles and won far more than they had 'draws' for the past nearly 2 years but still saw their morale slip 3 or 4 percent over that time.

Allied Turn November 28, 1944

Previous Axis Turn:
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear in Europe.

A few units show up north and east of Berlin. Including 1 AA, 1 AT unit and a Cavalry Division and a Volkssturm Garrison.
A German Destroyer and a half strength Battleship bombard a Soviet Paratrooper southwest of Kolberg.



Allied Turn
Frozen in the Arctic. Clear in Europe.

Russian Fighters recon south of Potsdam to report on the defenses south of Berlin. They take 2 damage from a German Army they fly over.
American and UK fly their own Recon missions with the USAAC Piñata, Maritime bombers and even a fighter.

In Northwestern Germany, UK forces move eastward uncontested taking Wilhelmshaven and Osnabruck.
In Southern portion of the western front, UK forces liberate Mulhouse and Occupy Stuttgart and Mannheim.
In the center a US Army rushes through Kassel and destroys a 1 strength Tactical bomber in Erfurt.
US forces capture Schweinfurt and Wurzburg uncontested.
2 US Corps destroy a Garrison in Nurnberg, at the cost of 2 damage to one of the Corps.
US forces from the southern front capture Nurnberg and Regensberg.
A half strength Soviet Corps captures Brno and spots a German HQ in Prague and a Panzer unit northeast of the city behind fortifications.
An Italian Corps captures Linz and Budweis.

The 2 cut off German Corps in Croatia are destroyed by the combined efforts of the Greeks, UK, US and even a Romanian Cavalry division in the area.
The Hungarian Corps in Budapest is bombed twice and then destroyed by a UK Armor unit. The city is quickly taken before the Russians arrive.

Northeast of Neustrelitz a German Cavalry division is destroyed by a Russian Mech and a Russian Army.
Another Russian Mech circles to the northwest of Neustrelitz and attacks Von Leeb's HQ in the town doing 9 damage over 2 attacks.
A 7 strength Shock Army moves north of the town and destroys the HQ.
An 11 strength regular Army attacks the AT gun to the southeast of the Neustrelitz, doing 4 damage while taking 2.
A 9 strength Armor destroys a Garrison to its south (and to the northeast of Berlin).
A 6 strength Russian Tactical bomber hits the AT for 2 damage (bringing it to a 4), while taking 1 back.
With the AT units ZOC removed, the Armor unit swings through Neustrelitz and destroys a German fighter air field northwest of Berlin.
With 2 hexes next to Berlin now vacant, a 12 strength (3 exp) Shock Army moves next to Berlin (where the Garrison formerly was) and paratroopers land to the northwest of the city amongst the ruined Me109s and FW190s.
Frankfurt (Oder) is taken via an Adjacent Armor and Katyusha strikes. A Shock Army moves into the town and strikes a AA gun to the north, doing 6 damage for 1 back.
The AA gun is then destroyed by another Russian Army that moves to the north of it.
A Shock Army (8 strength) and a Regular Army destroy the AT gun (str 4) in the forest north of Berlin, each taking 1 damage doing so, and open a 3rd hex next to the German Capital.
Sadly it is determined that nothing can actually reach that hex.
A push to the southern side of the city is tried and a Garrison southwest of Frankfurt (Oder) is destroyed by a Mech.
A Garrison in Dresden is destroyed by a Army and a Corp, and a Mech takes the city. More German units are spotted near Leipzig.
A Russian Armor moves up and destroys a Garrison south of Berlin, But once again nothing can reach the hex (A Tiger unit behind fortifications to the southwest of Berlin and a Army south of Postdam provide too much ZOC).
Pardubice is taken, a Russian Heavy Armor attacks a Panzer through a fortification northwest of Pardubice and destroys it in 2 strikes at the cost of 4 damage.
Kluge's HQ in Prague is then destroyed by a Russian Shock Army and Regular Army. Soviet Light tanks then capture the city and the nearby mines.

The Assault on Berlin then begins:
3 Russian Medium Bombers and 5 Russian Tactical Bombers strike the city doing 6 damage to the defending Corps and wiping out all entrenchment. The bombers take about 7 damage spread out amongst them.
Then rather anticlimactically the elite Russian Shock Army takes the defender out and moves into the city.
The Frustrated paratroopers destroy another German fighter field (4 strength FTR) northwest of Potsdam.

Some additional units move forward if for some reason German doesn't surrender.
Further attacks against German ships and Airfields are called off.

Germany Surrenders.

Hungary Surrenders.

Occupied Countries are liberated.

Alsace is returned to France.

Iraqi rebels damage Mosul (yeah, how's that going to go for them?)

Greek Communists start fighting with Greek Monarchists.

GG.

--------
I want to thank Rannug61 for sticking it out. It was very much appreciated, and in no way did I think I would be able to end the game this early.
I thought for sure it would go deep into 1945 at the earliest.

Regardless or not, I was really scared for some time.

One thing I didn't get was the switch in targets from Leningrad/Stalingrad to Moscow. You were at/just beyond Rostov when bad weather hit, I thought for sure you were going to take Stalingrad in early 42.
Instead you pushed at Moscow where I had sank most of my defenses.

Additionally while the UK fleet was never challenged her economy was so bad with the loss of the middle east and was so low on forces I had to build her Industrial Tech up just to have a decent income. It comes pretty quickly when 2 chits are invested and is catching up to the US. What I thought was going to be a side show diversion to soak off some units (and Planes!) from Russia to Greece turned into much more; And once Italy was bounced and Turkey joined the UK was able to start rebuilding a proper ground force. Otherwise D-Day might have been postponed past historical, since there weren't enough Americans to do that and clean up Iraq and to fight in the Alps.

I need a break.

I'm having an issue dealing with a philosophical design difference of opinion regarding this game.

That and doing an AAR with the turns is a huge time sink.

----
Having said that, I do have the unedited pictures I could replace on the thread here if there is a desire to see them.

I did so many things wrong but some of the worst things was the Italian Navy and how Greece started to bite my ass. With Spain I was a bit unlucky... I was weaker in Russia then you knew.. too few units.
If Spain would have turned axis the game could have been a 50/50 thing. Still Taxman was the better man in this one.. Spain or no Spain.
Looking forward to a new game when you are up for it.

Yes, Spain not getting that last firing was huge!; and super lucky on my part.
The loss of Gibraltar would've kept Italy safe for far longer; and would've made attacking Egypt/Iraq via AVL a very daunting task. Also would've kept you safe from the Greek distraction.
Side note: Even when Greece joins via diplomacy they need/get a boost to morale by having a UK unit in their country.

I kinda sensed there was a (numbers of) unit issue in Russia, which is why I kept probing back and forth in the Crimea and other areas.
Still with the very high morale and high quality German units, Russia really couldn't do much harm except to weaker Italian units and Axis minor non fully upgraded units or units stretched at their supply limits (and thus lower on morale). Flow of MPP to Russia from the UK was not always maxed and was cut off sooner to help build up the Greeks and rebuild the UK forces.

An even bigger shock to me was that German Spying & Intelligence was never invested in.
