If Germany attacks Netherlands (not Belgium) in October 1939 Belgium goes to 99% and enters war, which as I recall allows their defenders to be entrenched for German attack in November 1939.

Does this attack cause Italian mobilization to increase beyond the typical 65-69% range in October/November 1939, or does Italian mobilization meander upwards and they join the war in May 1940?

This has major impact on survival planning for Regina Marina.

Any country surrendering to Axis will increase Italian mobilization. Belgium surrendering adds extra. DOW and attacking by itself does not. Allies abandoning med positions adds quite a bit, which is a move Allies can pull to deal some serious damage to Regina Marina. There are many gamey moves that both sides can do...

I'd say that the gamiest I have seen so far is the Japanese fleet scouting the Indian Ocean and Red Sea in 1940 to spot targets for German and Italian raiders. Luckily my opponent, being a reasonable man, agreed to discontinue this practice.
