I don't want to revive the old "France is too strong" thread. But, is this situation hopeless?

Taken from an earlier game against ComadrejaKorp, not the current one.

You got 6 tanks, should have plenty of supply trucks, and have air power.

There is a huge weak spot in his defense in which you can blow away 3 corps including a French armor.

BTW you have all these units on the Seigfried line that are corps. Split them and pull those divisions around to form another unit.

Well, I am not the most experienced player, but I would say that it is still too early to say. What I would do is to ignore the UK and try to take 1-2 turns to reach the second French line (what I am not sure is if I would try to attack the French armor). Then, for the next turn or 2, go West toward the sea under the Somme. If after turn 1-2 the UK is still around Lille when you might be able to trap him, he will be forced to evacuate as there are only 2 very small ports for supply.

Of course, the enemy will react and it will not be that easy to implement that plan. You have to hope the French will not put up a good fight and that the UK attempts on your flank will fail. The virtual dices will become important here What worries me the most for German is the missing fourth fighter (unless I am blind).

Thank you, I never thought of that.

Thank you, exactly the advices I was looking for. Yes, the fourth fighter was in Denmark and has nothing to do there, another mistake.

In carrying out your plan, I would be really afraid of my flanks, with three tanks ready to strike back.

Sorry I must be blind, I don't see it. He has all the necessary retreat paths.

No risks, no glory. But yes, it is a risk... Make sure that you start doing that early in the morning and that your opponent can play a few turns that day. I personally would not sleep very well if I had to wait for the result of the Allies attempts at my flank

You can also try the slow frontal grinding, but I believe it is actually what the Allies are hoping you to do.
