This a new try for a Fascist Sweden, I wrote one AAR for HOI but I abandoned it a few months ago. But I will now write a new one, same concept, differnt game. For a more exciting game I have altered a few things:
1. Lowered the cost of factories to 3 IC and lowered the construction time to 120 days. This for giving small countries, like Sweden, a chance to build their own future, be players too.
2. Lowered the cost of infrastructure. Same reason as 1.
3. Raised the amount of resources in the world with about 20%. More IC demands more resources, and since I thought that giving more resources to only Sweden would be cheating, I gave more to the whole planet! Fascists can be nice too .
4. Added some events to Sweden, mostly giving them some more manpower in the time of war, paying with dissent. And ofcourse events making Sweden fascist.
5. I altered the ministers and some leaders to spice the story up.
6. I raised the value of IC in conquered provinces. Also to make conquest a little more fun and worthwhile.
I will be playing 1.2.
The goal for the campaign will be an early joining of the axis for blueprints, since Sweden dont have many resources and my new industries will be demanding alot of them, i will have to trade early and alot with mainly Germany, UK, and USSR to stockpile, since trade during the war will be hard.
The conquest plan is as follows:
1. Attack on norway in 39. I could of course attack earlier, the norweigian army is not that good, but that would draw me into war with the allies. And then my trade would collapse, and as thus also my warmachine. So it must be in 39.
2. Support for the german wareffort in Europe while waiting for the finnish winterwar to end. At the same time directing the warproduction on navalbombers and marines in preparation for the attack on Denmark.
3. After the end of the winterwar, an swift attack on Finland.
4. After Finland, if the marines and navalbombers are ready, an attack on Denmark. This can be tricky, since I cannot pass the strait with my navy between Sweden and Denmark, so I must land in Jylland before the Germans, hopefully I can get to Odense before the danish and then crushing copenhagen with an combined marineattack from Skåne and infantry from Odense. To accomplish this, I must first destroy the danish navy with my navalbombers. Denmark, of the scandinavian countries, is the hardest to beat. But hopefully not impossible. As long as Germany doesnt beat me to it, but hopefully will they be busy in France or Yugoslavia.
5. Finally, destruction of the red menace and reconquest of the baltic region. Hopefully I will have an impressive tankarmy by now, that can pierce the russian lines and reach latvia before the germans.´
This is the main plan of conquest. Regarding defense:
1. By the start of the war at least have 2 fighters and 3 navalbombers. The fighters will protect my west coast from hostile bombing and the navalbombers will keep the RN busy. Hopefully giving some protection against an invasion. The close to worthless swedish navy will i station outside Göteborg for early defence against my nordic neighbours, then maybe send it to Östersjön to rampage the red navy until it dies!
2. Land defence will be light, and mainly on the norweigian west coast. Maybe 2 or 3 divisions. Depending on the progress in the east.
This is the setting in 1936. May Sweden prevail and prosper!
