Damn. Was hoping 7th Armour would at least survive the turn.

I've learned one valuable lesson from all this at least.

Allied Turn October 14, 1940

Previous Axis Turn:
Clear in England. Clear in Europe.

The Wehrmacht goose steps through London and both German and Italian (??) morale soars.

A Garrison in Cambridge and the 7th Armour behind a river to northwest of Cambridge are destroyed by German air and panzers.
A German Medium Bomber takes a hit from AA fire, as English fighters have little to no effect.
On the ground the German Army takes 1 damage and one of the Panzers takes 2 damage (but also earns a 2nd pip of experience).

A German paratrooper does 4 damage to a Garrison in Birmingham. While the Garrison in Coventry is ignored (for now).

Elements of the Luftwaffe stage to southern England.

In the Atlantic the U30 sub continues the engagement with HMCS Saguenay (1 exp) and get the better of the encounter (2 dmg to the DD, 1 dmg to the sub) and then flees in the direction of the French west coast.


Allied Turn
Clear in England. Mud in Europe.

On probably the last turn that the UK can put a crimp on the German supply situation in England, Sterling Heavy bombers first strike at Oxford where a German HQ has set up.
The Sterlings are escorted by fighters from HMS Courageous and encounter Me109s flying from Portsmouth: GE FTR -2 dmg, Oxford -1 dmg, Courageous Air wing -1 dmg, Strat Bombers -1 dmg.
A 2nd wave is launched at Southampton (Portsmouth's port) and is escorted by Spitfires and intercepted by German fighters in Caen: GE FTR -2, Port -1, UK FTR -3.
Oxford is now at a 2 while Southampton and Portsmouth are both at 3.

HMS Javelin surprises the Italian sub Leonardo da Vinci and does 3 damage while taking only 1 back.
ORP Blyskawica then comes to help Javelin and forces the da Vinci to dive.

Hungary joins the Axis

Raiders hit the Indian (iirc) and Egyptian convoy lines for 36 MPP damage.

I also believe that my poor weather luck continues as it appears that it will be clear (yet again) for the Axis in England.

--------
*I was hoping the Armour would survive the round. Probably too wishful thinking. Same goes with the weather rolls.

I am having issues with my computer and will likely have to take it to the shop.

It won't access the Internet a couple minutes after booting up. Including jamming up whatever I could get started on briefly after logging in.
Then it won't shut down. It gets stuck on 'Waiting for Task Host Window'. If I force that closed it gets stuck shutting down. I get the 'Preparing to Configure Windows' message that will stay up for hours and hours until I kill the power. When I start it up the process repeats itself.

I've tried logging on with a different (wife's) user id;
and I've tried shutting down immediately after logging in;
and I've tried shutting it down at the login prompt screen. Always the same results.

*Sigh I was hoping for fall rain; but why should 1940 be any different than 1939. I was also hoping I did enough to the supply situation to stop paradrop shenanigans.

Allied Turn November 5, 1940

Previous Axis Turn:
Mud in England. Rain in the Atlantic.

An elite Garrison unit in Coventry withstands 3 attacks from 2 Panzer units before succumbing. They even manage to do 1 damage to one of the Panzer units.
The damaged Panzer (str 7, 2 exp) then pushes on south of Sheffield, defended by a Corps. A German Tactical bomber is sent to soften up the defenders and is hit by AA fire twice (1 by an AA unit, the other by the city/Corps).
The Panzer then attacks and the defenders hold after taking a total of 4 damage while managing a point of damage to the Panzer (now str 6).

The elite Garrison in Birmingham doesn't fair as well and is destroyed by a paratrooper and a German Army, with only the German Army taking 1 damage.

A 2nd Paratrooper moves next to Manchester and Liverpool and triggers a surprise combat against the Corps in Manchester (too bad not the Army in Liverpool).
The Corps in Manchester takes 1 damage while the Paratroopers take 2. The paratroopers do spot the Strategic Bombers between Manchester and Leeds.

The Strategic Bomber (str 5) air field is then targeted by Tactical Bombers (which take a hit from the AA unit between Sheffield and Leeds), a German Fighter and are wiped out by the 3rd set of paratroopers
dropping safely in the mountains between Sheffield and Manchester.*

The Corps defending Bristol is hit by 2 Medium Bombers, 1 Tactical Bomber and a German Corps. It is reduced to half strength with only the first Medium Bomber taking a hit.

In the Atlantic the scouting Italian Sub Leonardo da Vinci runs into ORP Blyskawica and manages to do 1 damage to the Polish Destroyer without repercussion.


Allied Turn
Mud in England. Rain in the Atlantic.

Tactical Bombers, escorted by fighters from HMS Glorious, strike at the 7th FSJ paratroopers (str 8) south of Manchester. German fighters stationed at Oxford intercept:
Glorious Air Wing -1 dmg, UK TAC -1 dmg, GE FTR -2 dmg, GE Para -2 dmg.

The BEF Army in Liverpool then attacks the 7th FSJ (str 6, supply 2, morale 49%, readiness 40%) and does 3 damage to them. The paratroopers retreat south, thus denying the Corps in Manchester a chance to kill them with low supply.

The Corps in Sheffield hops on a train and flees northward.

HMS Suffolk runs into the Gneisenau west of the southern tip of Ireland and west of the convoy lines. Both ships are shocked to find the other at relatively close range in the storm and put shells into each other.
Gneisenau -2 dmg, Suffolk -3 dmg.
HMS Salmon then slips in close from the south and puts a torpedo into Gneisenau for 2 more damage.
HMS Norfolk then arrives from the north to help her sister ship and exchanges 1 damage with the German Pocket Battleship.
Gneisenau flees eastward away from the British Cruisers and next encounters HMS Rodney. Rodney and Gneisenau exchange 3 damage.
HMS Duke of York then puts a shell into Gneisenau's magazine and blows her up, but not before taking a hit back (1 dmg).

The half strength Corps in Bristol boards transports and is evacuated.

The UK convoy lines are ravaged for 75 MPP in losses.

The weather gods continue to hate me as it appears to be clear skies and ground for Germany in the UK next turn.

* A landing in mud in the mountains and no damage whatsoever.

Kudos, IG.

I was not expecting a push in Egypt until after Malta was delt with.

My sparse units were placed lazily and now I've apparently paid for it.

This game is rapidly approaching ROFL Stomp territory.

In addition to all the normal German advantages, there is now a 30% (possibly more) national morale difference between the UK and both Axis powers.

The UK fleet can't defend the Isle, and the convoys, and prevent Italy from getting into the Atlantic. I haven't done any of those 3 things very well. All I've done is kept it from getting ambushed/picked off.

That's about the only thing I've done better than the AI would have.

The USSR is looking at not only a Germany with very high National Morale, but a very likely Barbarossa that includes Rommel attacking into, or possibly even from, Persia.

Allied Turn November 27, 1940

Previous Axis Turn:
Clear in England. Storms in the Atlantic.

An Italian Battleship finds the Transports (str 4 after rough seas last turn) from Bristol, but doesn't attack (Cruise mode, I presume).
An Italian Destroyer then moves in and does 3 damage to the Transports.

Another Italian Battleship (str 8) is observed entering the Atlantic.

The Italian Naval Bomber flies to the English East Coast where HMS Glorious flew her escorts from and is intercepted by Glorious's fighters.
There are no escorts and the Bombers take a hit of damage with none to Glorious's air wing.

The Corps in Manchester is destroyed.

The Garrison in Leeds takes 2 damage.

The USA Volunteer Fighter Group engages an Italian Fighter and a Medium Bomber. The UK Fighter takes 4 damage while hits are scored on both Italian air units, and the Bombers taking a 2nd hit from AA.
In Egypt the Corps south of Sidi Barani is forced to retreat and then destroyed. An Italian Army takes 1 damage and a German Panzer Grenadier takes 2 in the fighting.
A German Panzer unit bypasses the UK Army in Sidi Barani and destroys the fighters* on the ground. It takes a 2nd attack at O'Conner's HQ in Mersa Matruh but fails to do any damage.

Romania joins the Axis.


Allied Turn
Clear in England. Clear in the Atlantic.

The Garrison in Leeds is reinforced, while the AA unit north of Leeds bugs out northward.
The BEF Army in Liverpool digs in determined to be a thorn in the side, for a little while at least.

In Egypt, The O'Conner HQ and the WDF Army dig in as to attempt to escape would compromise what little defense there is.

In the Atlantic the it takes a major effort by the Royal Fleet but they manage to sink the RM Conte di Cavour (BB) and do 7 damage to the RM Lampo (DD).
HMS Duke of York (str 9) takes 4 damage and the HMS Rodney (str 7) takes 1 in the fighting.

The badly damaged (str 1) Transports then manage to high tail it out of the area.

The UK convoy lines are ravaged for 112 MPP in losses.

Rain appears in England, finally.

--------
* Funnily enough it is the USA Volunteers that is the name of the FTR group that is part of the Egyptian Reinforcements.
