Part I - The prewar years 1936-1939
For the second Arsenal of Democracy AAR, I am going to be playing the United Kingdom. I held a poll yesterday and the United Kingdom was the country most requested by the community. Since the game is going to be released in a week this AAR will move at a faster pace than the first one. There may be multiple updates each day, so check back often. This game will also be played on normal difficulty, but I have set the AI aggressiveness to normal to test out the new invasion AI. Again this AAR’s primary purpose is to showcase the new features in Arsenal of Democracy.
Some things have changed since the last AAR. It is now slightly easier to get rid of dissent. Free slider moves now occur every year instead of every 18 months. Research speed has been increased. Transport capacity has been increased. Noncore IC/resource penalty has been decreased. Tooling and retooling time has been reduced to 80 and 40 days respectively.
We are going to start off with a few new features not discussed in the Soviet Union AAR. The first screenshot of the AAR is of a new heavy submarine flotilla. The heavy submarine flotilla was created to allow for longer ranging submarines earlier in the game.
In the next screenshot you will see that light aircraft carriers have been given their own aircraft brigades.
Next we have a screenshot of the new tech teams the community has added for the United Kingdom. Also shown are the new secret weapons techs.
Continued in the next post because of high number of screenshots.
