Turn 1. Sep/Oct 1939. Allied #5.

No wars

France - combined
USSR - combined
China - land
US - combined
CW - combined

Port strike:
None

Naval air:
None

Naval movement:
CW protects convoys in Cape St Vincent.
CW sails a CA-fleet to the Eastern Med.

France sends 2 CA to the Baltic 3-box

The US sends 2 SUBs towards Midway.

Naval combat:
CW elects to not initiate combat in Bay of Biscay nor Cape St. Vincent.
CW initiates in the Eastern Med.
Allies rolls 7
Axis rolls 2



What does Italy want to do?

Questions to ponder for Italy/Germany as well:

Does Italy want to initiate in the Bay of Biscay?
Does Germany want to react against the French CA that will initiate in the Baltic?

If Italy has 6 surprise points, then they will go with surface combat. Use 4 surprise points to reduce the damage suffered to 1D + 3A. Then use the remaining 2 surprise points to 1X on the CW fleet. Then the Italian force aborts to La Spezia. Garibaldi takes the first D result. If I made a miscalculation then please let me now.

xxx

Italy will not react in BoB. I thought they couldn't anyway. Just kidding. Italy won't react in CSV.

Germany will not reinforce the Baltic Sea.

Naval combat continued:

D on CA Garibaldi, roll 9 - aborted
X on CA Manchester, roll 2 - destroyed
As Italy will abort the sea the aborts irrelevant.


The Italian ships abort to La Spezia.

France initiates in the Baltic.
Allies rolls 1
Axis rolls 5
France spends 4 surprise to chose submarine combat.
France increases the damage with the remaining surprisepoints.


Does Germany stay and fight?

Impulse #7 (Axis)

Germany DOW Belgium. One US entry marker added. (4 rolled)

Will Belgium align to France, or CW?

How will the Belgian units be placed? Not shown in the picture is 1 TERR, and 2 CPs.

Note: If France is considered for aligning Belgium, then, in order to avoid later surprises, it might be beneficial to be updated on the rule deviation on Vichy creation.

Edit: Pictured replaced with a better cut one.

In RAC there are a few rule deviations. Rule changes from the WIF version that MWIF is built upon.

I cut in the relevant change shortly.

I only mentioned it so that there will be no surprise later on, because I know that not all has read the entire RAC. Especially not when they were familiar to the WIF rules.

The last point may be the most relevant one. Note that it include minor countries colonies as well.

Cut from RAC:

17. Vichy France
....
17.2 Determine control
....
[Deviation (taken from RAW8.21 draft)
• All Axis controlled hexes in Vichy controlled minor countries and territories immediately revert (see 13.7.5)
to Vichy French control.
• Axis controlled hexes in Free French controlled minor countries and territories remain under Axis control.
• All Allied controlled hexes in Free French controlled minor countries and territories immediately revert to
Free French control.
• All Allied controlled hexes in Vichy French controlled minor countries and territories may now be
immediately reverted to Vichy control. Vichy France is hostile to all Allied major powers that do not
immediately revert all such hexes to Vichy control.
• Finally all Vichy controlled minor countries France has gained controlled of since the start of the game
immediately become controlled by an Axis major power nominated by the major power that installed Vichy
France. The minor country is conquered if it aligned to France and aligned if it was conquered by France.
If more than one minor country is available to be allocated they may be allocated to different major powers.]

Italy finds the Allied shipping on a roll of 5, while the Allies rolls a 10. This gives the Italian fleet enough surprise to eliminate all the Allied CPs.

Germany:
LND2 (Cologne) -> Brussels
LND3 (Aachen) -> 54,31

France can intercept the raid NW of Reims (54,31) with one FTR2. Germany can counter-intercept with one FTR3. Will France intercept the German bomber?

Intercept and abort as soon bomber cleared or aborted.

The German bomber was aborted, but the French fighter was shot down. The French pilot survives to fight another day.

Italy:
MTN -> 61, 32
TERR -> 119,66

German forces advance into Belgium, and in Poland the German units close in on Lodz, and Warsaw.

Debark
HQI Yamamoto->96,139(Hainan Res)
MAR Canton

Land Combat:

Japan:
Yamamoto (HQI) assaults the Chinese MIL on Hainan.

Germany:
Assault on Antwerp with 3 units, all doubled by Rundstedt (HQA). Current odds 36:9.
Automatic assault on Liege. Odds 41:3.
Blitz on 55,32 with 3 units, all doubled by Rundstedt (HQA). Current odds 34:5.

Japan adds 3 points in shore bombardment on the attack on the MIL. Making it 11:1.

No HQ support.

German air (FTR2 + LND3) add 10 points to the assault on Liege.
Italian air (LND3) add 2 points in ground support to the blitz on hex 55,32.

Edit: I forgot to write that a doubled engineer uses its ability to negate the river for the blitz on hex 55,32.

Edit 2:Changed the initial odds on the blitz on 55,32 to the correct one.

Germany begins with the assault on Antwerp. Or I guess that it is an Assualt. If France had prefered blitz I can go back and change the attack.
