stjeand -> stjeand(Axis) vs ComadrejaKorp(Allied) France All in (3/25/2021 9:29:42 PM)

The is a game between myself and ComadrejaKorp to show how bad it is for the Axis with an Allied all in France.
PLEASE feel free to comment/ask questions. I will try to take my time to explain my process...and may even change it if suggestions are good.








stjeand -> It Begins (3/25/2021 9:34:31 PM)

It is September 1, 1939…
The German people are readying for Octoberfest. They decide that it would be best to invite their neighbors the Polish people. The Polish government declines the invite as they will be too busy delivering their paczkis to the French festival of Septemberfest. Now there will be no paczkis at Octoberfest. This infuriates the German government and they declare war.
To the west the French Empire and United Kingdom learn of this, and now know that all roads to France will be blocked and no paczkis will make it there. So they declare war on German.

And with that…we begin.
The Germans start with some rail movement readying for their invasion of Denmark on turn 2.






stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/25/2021 9:39:16 PM)

Denmark is set.

All German air moves West abandoning the Poles
And a lone German bomber visits Lyon dropping candy.
A good run...4 hits to Lyon

The submarine head to sea not knowing that due to their commanders incompetence they are doomed.

Advancements are as follows:

1 of my ancestors, Captain Gardiner, was allegedly the only surviving officer from the charge of the light brigade and my family still has his stuff. Sadly my father wasn't the eldest son so I did't inherit it. I'm sure he would have appreciated what you are doing.

Reality check - more recent research has shown that he wasn't the only surviving officer.

hahaha I was always curious to know the true origin of the conflict! thanks for lighting the way




stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/26/2021 7:13:48 PM)

For the Germans...mop up of the Polish frontier completes.

Total lossses in the campaign.

stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/26/2021 7:15:56 PM)

To strat bomb or not to strat bomb...that is the question.
On one hand you hit French production. On the other hand you take air losses IF it is being defended.

I decided to hit Lille...
The bombing of Lille ensues...before the crazy Allies can relocate their AA
No air on defense...12 hits to production. I can see he removed his AA from Paris and elsewhere and they will be in Lille next turn. That may change things.
But 12 damage will last a little while.
Use my fighters to strat bomb...and do gain 1 on one of them.
Bombers gain 4 total, 2 on 1, 1 on 2.exp

stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/26/2021 7:16:51 PM)

Denmark falls.

Stukas bomb for free experience. One gains 2 the other 1...so good result.

Sorry but I am reluctant to show my method for taking Denmark not using armor and not using landing craft in 1 turn.
Have to keep one secret.
Not seen anyone use it yet...but I suspect someone else has figured it out by now.


Garrison all units I can so that I can get some PP for early armor...

Able to build 2 Armor this turn.

Research for Breakthrough going well..already gained a month.

All the others just moving s l o w l y




stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/26/2021 7:21:18 PM)

Turn 10

11 MM sunk...thanks for sending oil or PP back to Canada.

The wait continues.




stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/27/2021 1:23:00 PM)

Turn 11

Wolfpack does well...10MM 3Escorts sunk but 1 sub takes 4 hits.

Worth it. That sub goes home to get better.

Germany builds 2 subs and starts to ungarrison its troops.

Finally having a decent BOA...and will not make it past France. Sad




stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/28/2021 11:17:07 AM)

Turn 12...2MM but 4 hits on subs, 1 takes 3.

Have to head home for a few months.

[:)] Thanks for making this. I hope to see more screenshots starting May 10th.




stjeand -> RE: It Begins (3/28/2021 4:13:23 PM)

OH there will be. Just not worth the time now.
I will be posting shortly my order of battle...and look for suggestions.

Then...we hit.

Sadly this is one to the best games I have had as the Axis and will lose in July mostlikely.
But one never knows.




stjeand -> ORDER OF BATTLE (3/28/2021 5:37:57 PM)

So...the Axis will have the following...

Their starting 2 Panzer Corps.

Reinforcements
April 2nd
2 Panzer Corps
1 Mech Corp
April 30th
1 Panzer Corp
1 Mech Corp
May 14th
1 Panzer Corp

20 or so INF Corps
And the assorted air units


So now...the question is...

Netherlands and Belgium to open a wide front?
Just Belgium?

Anyones thoughts?

I almost always hit the Netherlands. I just need 2 Inf Corps, 1 Armor, 1 Mech...then the rest hit Belgium.

About a 25% chance I take Belgium. Not been having the best of luck. But we will see.





ncc1701e -> RE: ORDER OF BATTLE (3/28/2021 5:47:09 PM)

I am always doing both. And, for the test, I think it is important to do both.




stjeand -> RE: ORDER OF BATTLE (3/28/2021 6:29:39 PM)

Turn 14...again lost a turn.

1MM sunk...5 hits on sub and it sinks. Yup...5 hits one turn in 1940.
