Nordic Iron Ore Route

Post by ago1000 »

Is there any reason to protect the Nordic Convoy route with escorts?

I don't believe there is any value to protecting it. It is inherently protected by the nature of the route.

In Baltic blizzard conditions the iron ore comes through Narvik and down the Norwegian coast, doesn't it? During these turns Allies can interdict it.

You don't have to. But the Allies can invade along the coast and take a hex blocking it. Then you have to root them out.

Which incentivizes keeping an air unit around.

It's a balance of cost. Do the Allies want to invade late summer to block winter risking losing that unit and having supply ships get bombed?
How much do the Germans want to commit?
