Those very lucky search rolls brought the Italian navy in a weak position. The situation on the Egyptian border looks very bad. I dont see any chance to take Egypt. You should try to get out the HQ Balbo to Italy before its too late. Anything you bring there to help will be lost with them.
I think you should completely focus on France and use all possible help from Italy for the Germans.

I read this - that's why I tried to get Italy into supply last impulse. There is no why I am running as they are black print units. However I will attempt to get Balbo to safety - albeit its a long shot.

Might be a good idea to get that range 6 fighter to the south of Sicily,next turn. It can operate in box 2 in east or west Med.
As an escort for ships or naval planes. Its presence forces enemies into Naval air battle.
You should use short range fighters as escorts for convoys in box 0 for the same reason.
In your German air reserve you have a range 5 fighter with attack 3. Also a land bomber(naval factor1) with range 4 and attack 3.
these are very underestimated planes that can operate from sea box 2(in the Med) and are a match for the Commonwealth CV fighters.
I always operate from box 2 with naval planes with this protection. That Gabbiano is just not safe in box 4.
I think you should get that organised fighter immediately to the south of Sicily to operate as an escort for a convoy in the east Med box 0.

Don't forget to save some oil. Best breakdown that weak motorised corps in Poland into two motorised divisions.
You need those mot divisions to take out as casualties in your blitz attacks towards Paris later.

I will try and follow what I'm doing in the other MP. I broke down the MOT in that and always try and save oil wherever I can.

Indeed. My army has been practising Tulips From Amsterdam over the last week or so.....

By the way, are you comfortable with Manchuria and the garrison?

I live next to Asterdam. So i hope to see you soon.
It would be fantastic news if the Russians declare war. I really hope so.
They wil lose in Manchuria. And its winter also.
When i play Germany. My goals are take Paris at least in Jul\Aug 1940. And never ever use an offensive chit before Barbarossa.
Barbarossa starts in may/june 1941.
How do you think about these topics?

When I play Germany my goal is to take Amsterdam by Jul/Aug 1940... assuming I haven't lost the game already. I tend to use up both offensive chits in the west and then forget all about Barbarossa - what is that anyway? I've heard of it but......

Was the Netherlands INF placed in Rotterdam?

Does CW any INF on a TRS that can return to Rotterdam? If so, then that unit will let Rotterdam remain Allied, if it is allowed into Rotterdam.

Yes the INF was placed in Rotterdam. No, there should be no more CW TRS or Liner available to reinforce. Of course the Dutch do now get the benefit of CW aircraft and shore bombardment and the snow means -2 level on attacks.....

So if Amsterdam wasn't captured? Then the INF in Rotterdam can just move into Amsterdam and fight with defensive support from CW?

Otherwise I see little point with the Dutch INF being placed in Rotterdam.

It was a good move. I had a guaranteed taking of Amsterdam if he'd put it in the capital - and only a minor chance of being disorganised. This way there is an opportunity for the Dutch to impose losses on the Germans.

Fortune may favor the bold, but fate favors the wise.... I like using the surprise round of italy on the British in the med. I got 2 1-10 splits on a surprise round and killed 2 double-loaded green carriers and a Mot loaded 4-4 trans. Songs were sung, let me tell you. Didn't see the British in the med for 18 months and let the Italians feel like they were mighty for a year.... (as righteously garrisoned France....).
