First battle didn't go too well... but not too bad either.

A result worthy of the Italian navy. May your navy do almost as well in our game

The Graf Spee's next adventure is an inconclusive battle against the Ranger in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

The further adventures of the Graf Zeppelin.

We tried raiding in the Atlantic but it was rather ineffective.

Next it goes to the Med to help Italy, where it encounters the Glorious.

Churchill no longer sleeps.




Dalwin -> RE: I did it... [Graf Zeppelin] (6/29/2020 10:24:37 PM)

As the Allied player in that game, I can tell you that Churchill probably lost his job in 1941. Since then Britain has only held Scotland. This of course triggered Spanish entry into the Axis, followed by the fall of Gibraltar and Portugal. Gibraltar more than anything gives him the freedom to do well in the naval game. It is unfortunate that British ports south along the African coast or in South America cannot be represented. The current map puts all of my good bases mostly out of range of key shipping lanes, thereby letting him ravage my convoys almost unopposed (as much due to vagaries of the map as anything).




sveint -> RE: I did it... [Graf Zeppelin] (6/30/2020 1:29:27 AM)

And he scores! Woohoo!

That's what you have oilers for. They are only 30 PP and 60 days to build. You can therefore keep 9 ships on station permanently for only 10PP per turn.

I was worried it was pure folly to build a German carrier. But so far it is paying off, and boy is it fun!

Latest results (it also scores a single hit on the Nelson BB):

Iron Cross with Oakleafs to you!




sveint -> RE: I did it... [Graf Zeppelin] (7/1/2020 10:56:01 PM)

July 16, 1943. The Graf Zeppelin gets into another scrap with the Ranger, but the Americans come out ahead.
It sails for futher adventures...

Another inconclusive battle against the Ranger.

Aided by land based bombers the Graf Zeppelin sinks the Illustrious.

Where is the Peter Strasser?




Harrybanana -> RE: I did it... [Graf Zeppelin] (7/17/2020 12:03:44 AM)

Am I the only one reading these posts who is rooting for the Graf Zepplin to be sunk? [:D]




sveint -> RE: I did it... [Graf Zeppelin] (7/17/2020 1:02:29 AM)

I keep expecting it to meet a tragic end. It's currently in dry-dock while the Allies are invading France.

I'd still rather have 2 panzers corps, but I don't regret building it - it's been fun to test out. Two carriers
as Germany would be absolute madness though.
