Few points to consider here:
1/ Germany was able to do naval invasions in Denmark and Norway. They need to still have the ability to do so.
2/ Italy has not done any naval invasions during the war I think. I may be mistaken here.
3/ UK was fearing Operation Sealion in 1940 so we must still allow Allies player to guess about an invasion.
4/ USA and UK invaded North Africa in November 1942.
Now, in all my games, UK or USA, sometimes UK only without USA at war, can invade North Africa end of 1941 or early 1942.
The initial situation at the beginning of Europe 1939 is:
Germany - 10 landing ships
Italy - 10 landing ships
UK - 0 landing ships
France - 0 landing ships
USA - 0 landing ships
USSR - 20 landing ships
And, yes I do or I see suicide division invasions to occupy me or my opponent.
The solution is to increase the cost. But, for me, there is another solution. We can keep the 25 PP cost for landing ships.
But, we can increase the needs of them for an invasion.
This is already done for armored/mechanized corps. My proposal is to do the same i.e. multiple the landing ships needed for invasion.
Infantry division: 10 Strength (x 3) = 30 landing ships required
Small infantry corps: 20 Strength (x 3) = 60 landing ships required
Large infantry corps: 30 Strength (x 3) = 90 landing ships required
Cavalry corps: 20 Strength (x 6) = 120 landing ships required
Mechanized corps: 30 Strength (x 6) = 180 landing ships required
Armored corps: 30 Strength (x 6) = 180 landing ships required
HQ: 10 Strength (x 10) = 100 landing ships required
The suicide division attack will be more costly and no more HQ suicide attack...
As such, I think we need to increase the initial landing ships of Germany and Italy to 60 landing ships instead of 10.
What do you think?
