UK vs Nordic 1

Post by Mayhemizer_slith »

Evening gentlemen,

We proudly present new AAR with mixed teams:
Orm playing USSR/France/Com Chinese
Mayhemizer playing US/CW/Chinese

Warspite1 and AllenK playing Axis (not sure which major powers they are playing).

Optional rules are almost the same as before, Food in Flames and Limited Overseas Supply are removed.

House Rules:
-We are playing with the en-route interception as before.
-Only strategic bombing allowed as a night mission (all other missions must be performed by day).

Italy scraps some of its more out-dated crapola.


I get confused, is this the crap stuff or our best units?

It is hard to tell. I probably wouldn't have scrapped the ART as even a 2 point ground-strike ability can be useful. The downside of keeping it is you almost invariably draw it instead of the better one[8|].

Exactement, and there is just too much other rubbish to buy that I can't see the Italians building both.
