Used some supply produced in India to send to Chinese via Ledo road. My Atlantic subs are arriving in Indian Ocean and DEI, attacked one transport fleet there, and sunk it. I guess this will force IJN to move some ASW assets in this, western sector of his empire.
I totally goofed with DDs and transports, and underestimated Axis sub threat (ironic, since it's subs that I planned to unleash on him!). Very st00pid of me. Heavy bombers seem totally useless vs. subs - I never saw any success using them. To admit the truth, I didn't research their ASW capability (but I do now).
What (unexpectedly) saved my ass somewhat is the supply I hauled from ME and India into the Med.
This allowed us to take South Italy. Remains of Italian fleet seek refuge in the Adriatic, but the Rooskies and the guy in my sig are not very happy about it. Italians, surrender already! I guess Raeder took command of the remanining Italian ships. We took Western France this turn as well, and Holland too (using the Paradrop vs. defended coast rule, one of my personal favs).
Ah, I guess we'll have to finish the Germans ASAP, so as to remove his *#$% sub flotillas from the map. Berlin here we come.
I managed to reopen some sort of conwoy route in the North Atlantic and bring supplies and troops from US to Europe, but far from satisfactory. German subs will feast on my poor transports in the very next turn.
Pacific. Hawaii are cut of from the mainland but I have large forces there so they'll have to take care of themselves for now.
Loose lips sink ships, and I am of the opinion I babble here far too much, giving hints to my enemies perhaps more than I should, but this AAR has marketing and educational purpose I hope
No screenshot this turn cause I am angry at being unable to kill the damn Axis subs, and don't want you to see how Axis subs rule the sea.
