Harrybanana -> RE: HB (Axis) vs Sveint (Allies) No Sveint for now. (7/8/2021 3:39:52 AM)

SEPTEMBER 27, 1940

8 MS sunk. The Kriegsmarine moves to raid the North Atlantic Convoy lanes.

OCTOBER 11, 1940

The good news is that the Kriegsmarine sunk 8 MS. The bad news is that the RN caught the entire German Fleet in a pursuit combat in its one and only attempt. This is why I generally don't like raiding with the German main fleet. I always seem to get caught quickly.

OCTOBER 25 TO DECEMBER 20, 1940

Little action in these 5 turns except in the BOA where a total of 17 MS and an escort are sunk for a loss of just 2 U-Boats. The Kriegsmarine limped home to Germany without further interceptions after wasting a lot of oil for little gain.

The British conquer Iraq and the British unit in Malta dies of starvation. I tried to paratroop a unit into Malta but for some reason it wouldn't let me. So I had to waste 20 Italian Landing Ships.

IIRC Italy starts the 39 scenario with at least one 5 strength small corps. I usually don't repair it so it can be used as a cheap invasion that uses only 5 Landing Ships. Also the understrength unit uses less supply in Libya but that can be risky if your opponent gets frisky.

Good advice; thank you.

JANUARY 3, 1941

Not a good turn in the BOA; 0 MS are sunk and 2 hits are scored on my U-Boats.

The UK invades Persia.

Persia is conquered.

JANUARY 31, 1941

The most exciting thing to happen is the Luftwaffe scores 2 hits on a British cruiser.

FEBRUARY 14, 1941

A good turn for the U-Boats as 9 MS and an escort are sunk against only 2 U-Boat hits.




Harrybanana -> RE: HB (Axis) vs Sveint (Allies) No Sveint for now. (7/10/2021 4:54:00 PM)

FEBRUARY 14 TO MARCH 28, 1941

Nothing happening except the BOA, where over the last 3 turns 26 MS and 2 escorts have been sunk for a cost of 7 hits on my U-Boats. A pretty good exchange I think.

APRIL 11, 1941

4 MS and an escort sunk. The Allies bomb Paris and Berlin causing a total loss of 14 production and losing 8 bomber strength. I had seen the air units massing in SE England, but weren't certain if they were SAC or TAC bombers. Now I know.

APRIL 25, 1941

Only 2 MS sunk. This time the British confine their bombing to Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam. 11 production lost and 1 bomber hit.

Current Forces and Casualties. I have built my usual 8 German Armour, 2 Mechanized, 20 large Corps and 3 paras for Barbarossa. There are also 2 Italian Armour and 1 mechanized along with the Hungarians and Rumanians. This leaves me 3 German Mechanized with which to hold off the British.

I am surprised at the low Russian Force Strength. Either Sveint built fewer weak units to build more stronger ones, or else he is saving his production for a massive first turn build.

Production. There is pretty much nothing building for Germany except supply trucks. All production over the last few turns has been used to upgrade unit techs and remobilize the infantry.

MAY 9, 1941

Only 3 MS sunk and British bombers inflict 11 production damage on various occupied Cities. The Brits are also on the move in Egypt.

Harrybanana -> RE: HB (Axis) vs Sveint (Allies) No Sveint for now. (7/11/2021 8:14:57 AM)

Barbarossa Begins. One difference between Sveint and myself is obvious right away as virtually all of his large corps are fully mobilized.

With the help of a paratrooper I shatter a mechanized in the South. Its only possible escape route was through a battle hex (circled) that at the time of the battle was not yet occupied by one of my units. Does that mean that the mechanized will reappear in a couple turns? I would have thought that battle hexes blocked supply paths, but perhaps not. Does anyone know?

Overall I would say the first turn was only a mixed success. I only destroyed 7 large corps; but I did shoot down a lot of Russian aircraft.

Yes it will come back if it was still owned by USSR. I have asked the question here and Alvaro's answer is later in the same thread:

That is too bad. Next time I will have to make sure the retreat is sealed off.

MAY 23, 1941

9 MS and 3 escorts are sunk at a cost of only 2 U-Boat hits. The British have only 179 MS, which is not enough to carry all of its resources and also carry production to Russia. Meanwhile the British damage another 10 production for a cost of only 1 bomber hit.

In North Africa 4 hits are scored on a British CA.

The South Before Moves. As you can see the Russians made several bombing runs at a horrible cost to the Russian airforce.

Part way through my moves in the North I noticed an opportunity to surround 2 Russian Mechanized units. It would require my 11 strength armour to first retreat or destroy the Russian infantry corps. My paras would then drop and assist with an attack to retreat a Russian mechanized.

Harrybanana -> RE: HB (Axis) vs Sveint (Allies) No Sveint for now. (7/13/2021 2:55:59 PM)

After the paradrops I had a 4:1 attack on the Russian mechanized, which was a bit risky, but it worked. But was it worth it? I don't really know.
