Well great...I have not paid much attention to losses until more recently. But they did seem excessive...I would normally lose only about 100 prior to the patch.

And as you said...that was "old" rules.

Turn 26

Uboats still struggling...2MS for 2 hits.
Pondering abandoning more sub builds...
Another arrives so now there are 5 but repairs are slowing them.
France Surrenders.
Italy moves most of their mech to Africa for the moment...until the Germans can get there but they are extremely worn out and I need to attack Yugoslavia and I think I will hit Vichy very quickly. They provide a lot of points especially early.
German armor arrives and heads for Yugo border.
Germany builds another.

Italy spent a lot getting all their armor so they are stuck.
The UK moves CV fleet to Malta with no AA...Italy is pondering a strike...but there is a UK air unit there so the Luftwaffe transfer a fighter.

Turn 27

Uboats sink 6MS and an escort for no hits.
But the UK got another 20 MS...still over 200.
Will have to sortie the surface fleet if I am to move that.
Germany builds another armor.
Looking like their armor numbers might be tight for the USSR...the garrison changes used to allow them 3 more armor than they will have which will be great for everyone else but the Germans. They will still get them just later.
Italy declares war on the UK and moves into Egypt...made contact with WDF and decides to hold there.
AA appears in Malta like a sign from above...so no bombing runs made a the UK fleet.

More units rail to Yugoslavia and Germany lines up a large army on the Vichy border.

Turn 28

6MS and 2 escorts sunk for 1 hit
UK still has over 200 MS...not making much of a dent
Germany builds another armor
The German panzers roll over a lone Yugoslavian corps as war is declared and drive for the capital.

Turn 29

5MS sunk and 3 hits on subs.
I sortie the Kriegsmarine...hoping that perhaps they can put in a dent...
The Yugoslavian capital is nearly surrounded and the HQ almost overrun.
Germans sent the Luftwaffe to the Med as much of the UK navy is there.
It seems he is waiting for the Germans to invade North Africa. I am not sure with the new rules that they have the units to do it.
But I am setup if the opportunity arises.
Perhaps the German fleet heading to sea will get his carriers to head out of the Med.

Turn 30

The Kriegsmarine surface fleet was spotted and a DD took damage but the capital ships escaped...they have made it to Canadian waters in the rain...lets see if they can hold out there.
Germany builds an armor that will arrive after the start of the war with the USSR.

Turn 31

Kriegsmarine is being found every turn...
Bismarck takes 2 hits this turn...Harry never found them for nearly 5 months...but in this game...every turn taking damage.
5MS sunk...NOT worth 2 hits on the Bismarck.
Italy builds small corps to start guarding ports.

Germany can not afford a Mech yet. Hopefully next turn or two I can afford 2 more then need to start on supply trucks for the USSR.

Africa is mainly a stalemate.

Turn 32

Kriegsmarine is still being crushed...
4 hits on surface ships, 1 on sub for 6 MS sunk.
The BOA is going very badly...

Germany built a Mech and a sub...not sure why...but hoping that the odds will change.

Soggy Europe...5th Panzer arrives in Africa.

Sunk 1MS
Germany built a Inf Corp, sub and some supply trucks. Time to start stalking up.

Germany and Italy invade Vichy...Africa falls but Vichy survives due to snow movement.

I apparently lost some turns...

Turn 40

Surface fleet gets smashes...
Every attack succeeds against it. Even 2 subs hit the Bismarck twice.
All ships till afloat but barely. 3 successful attacks...crazy.
Sink 6MS total...but losses are well into the 500PP range.
Build Inf corps and trucks...

Looking at the map...don't think I have enough infantry. I have not even started fixing or upgrading units.

How close were you to a British controlled land/coast hex? The closer you are the better the British recon and the greater the chance that you will be found.

I was close over by Canada...but they have found me on the African coast and in the middle of the Atlantic...I think they did not find me once out of 6 or 7 attempts.
I try to stay away from the coasts but it is only so far that you can run and not be near some port somewhere.


VERY unlike our game where you could not find me for months and months...

Turn 41

12 MS sunk...4sub hits...
Surface fleet escapes any more harm but damage is done. Not sure they will be able to leave port again without ships sinking
Building more supply trucks.

Changed production to repairs as most air units are still damaged and none of the armor has been upgraded.

Time is short...not sure I will have the troops to invade. May have to delay until 42...

Turn 43

All subs in port
Built some German Landing Craft as I was out and supply trucks.
Air needs repair badly...still had not repaired due to all the armor that needed to upgrade.

Next turn is end of April...I look good for the invasion of the USSR...though need more troops in Africa for the UK counter that is bound to come.

Turn 44
Snow last turn kept efficiencies in the 70s and 80s...so the invasion is delayed.
Hopefully not for long.
All air is FINALLY repaired.
Upgrading the last of the invading infantry.
I send the German surface fleet south to a port off Africa. Each time I do they UK sorties all their ships south. Just draining their oil as best I can.

Subs take 2 hits and sink 8MS and 3 escorts...good turn.

3/4 Mech Corps (Deciding if I need to send one to Africa)
2 Italian Armor
1 Italian Mech
284 Supply trucks (140 in deployment queue)

Turn 47

8MS sunk 2 Escorts and 1 sub hit...
Seems I left some new port that Al added and the Russians invaded Germany capturing Hamburg.
No matter...it was a one turn hurrah.

Africa is still at a stand off...

I am deferring from Lenningrad and heading straight across towards Moscow.
In the South another large pocket that will be out of supply next turn.
The Russians are running short on troops in the south.

The declare war on Persia...though don't need the oil. They let the UK capture the south while they head in with a armor...which is good...that armor is now not near the lines.
The South is in a bad way. Could have it fully contained in 2 turns if all goes well.
