Ah, I love these "what ifs"! I remember trying this out in other games as well (especially CoS). Thing is, though, that the Axis SHOULD be going to lose this, so CC1's game is an important test for the AI scripts. They don't have to advance at once, which would be premature, but what should happen is that they build up an overwhelming allied force in France and start relieving the pressure on the Soviets well before the situation becomes untenable over there.
France has been relentless in attacking (to no avail) from the Maginot line front so this is costing both sides in reinforcement MPPs. The sole Luftwaffe fighter unit in the West has been taken a pounding as well and so another fighter unit has been purchased to bolster the one that is there now.
It is now December 30th, 1940 and the Afrika Korps has arrived in Libya!
