Allied Turn May 17, 1940
Previous Axis Turn:
Clear in Europe.
A flood of new German land units (they have 39 now) combine with the Luftwaffe and destroy 3 French Armies (although one was at 1 strength), 2 Corps and a UK Corps.
Germany takes Verdun, Nancy and Reims. Additionally they empty Chalons but are do not take the city yet.
German casaulties are relatively light: A hit on 2 Figthers (over Reims and Nancy from UK & French Fighters), 1 dmg to Corps attacking Chalons, 1 dmg to an Army attacking Reims,
1 dmg to a Panzer Grenadier and 1 dmg to a Corps at Nancy and 3 dmg to a Panzer versus the British Corps.
UK morale is boosted as Chamberlain is sacked and Churchill become Prime Minister.
French morale falls as the Germans approach Paris.
The UK take control of Iceland via Operation Fork.
The Germans reroute the Norwegian convoy.
Clear in England. Clear in Europe.
French bombers attack a low morale (str 7) German XXVII Corps northease of Lille, and are escorted by UK Fighters. German interceptors from Verdun engage:
UK FTR -2, FR Bmbr -2, GE FTR -1, GE Corps -2.
The B.E.F. in Lille then attacks the XXVII Corps (str 5), and does 2 damage while taking 1 back. The B.E.F. then evac out of Lille and head north.
The French 1st Army then moves into Lille and shatters the XXVII Corps.
France then builds a screen around Paris.
France is unlikely to last through 2 more German turns, unless the plan is 'All France'.
