Long-time lurker here. I have made a few derivatives of this scenario on my own and I figured it might be fun to try collaborating and make one for the community.
The date is July 5th, 1943.
Following the near-complete destruction of the Western Allied forces in failed efforts of Operation Torch, Germany and the Western Allies signed a white peace on June 30th, 1943. The United States and Great Britain were permitted to continue supplying lend-lease supplies to the Soviet Union and Germany agreed to end naval interdiction on ships supplying the Soviets under one condition: Germany would be permitted to buy raw materials desperately needed from the Western Allies under a cash and carry agreement. The naval war was effectively over and the fate of Europe would now solely be decided on the Eastern Front.
What to expect:
More aggressive attack stance (AI changed to level 4)
Higher quality lend-lease supplies to the Soviet Union, including the P-51, B-17, and others.
More numerous WA equipment (trucks, tanks, etc.) supplied through lend-lease
100% of production to Eastern Front
Higher production levels to account for the lack of Allied bombing range/intervention, greater access to raw materials
Technology advancements deployed sooner, with higher levels of reliability to account for a shift of focus to victory on the Eastern Front
All Western Forces redeployed to the Eastern Front (I will use War in the West OOBs as a basis for this)
What do you guys think? I want to try to keep it semi-balanced so that a skilled player could still win when playing on either side.
Is it realistic or historically accurate? eh. Probably not. But it might be fun to play.
