DE 104 – UK: Support a Pro-Allied Coup in Yugoslavia?
Event fires: There is a 50% chance per turn from the 24th February 1941 when London is in Allied hands, France has surrendered, both Germany and Italy are Axis and not surrendered,
and Yugoslavia is aligned with the Axis but not fully mobilized.
Cost of accepting: 60 MPPs at 30 MPPs a turn for 2 turns.
Yes: Yugoslavia joins the Allies and deploys a HQ unit at Belgrade. Greece has a 50% chance of
swinging 30-40% towards the Allies, while Germany loses 1,000 National Morale points, and will
only recoup them when Yugoslavia surrenders.
No: Yugoslavia signs the Tripartite Pact and joins the Axis, while Germany gains 1,000 National
So if I understand this correctly, if axis wants to diploannex Yugoslavia (i.e. 100% mobilization), they had better get it done before Feb '41 or it's basically guaranteed that Yugoslavia will be couped, join the allies thus rendering all invested MPPs to waste? So if axis decides this strategy they must go ALL in from day 1.
On a side note quite historical thou since they joined the Tripartite pact for 2 days before the coup. The terms Germany offered were actually pretty good, basically Hitler said that we don't want you to do anything else than not interfere with our affairs. Learned from WW1 since Serbia developed into a major PITA for central powers.
I had Yugo join Axis once without diplo. What are the odds of that happening
