Hopefully this will be my first completed AAR.
I've tried one or two very ambitious projects before and it just took up to much time. This one will be straight up, not to much fancy pansy stuff. But it will hopefully be true to its cause and will ofcourse have a storyline.
Here is the setup:
Full Techteam take-over.
Italy puppets Ethiopia ~ April 1936 ~
Republicans victorious over Nationalists ~ October 1936 ~
Nationalists fall and becomes a puppet ~ Somewhere before 1939 - was sick - the fastest I've seen in my life ~
Albania conquered ~ May 1939 ~
Communist China falls ~ 1939 ~
Poland falls ~ September 1939 ~
Finland Annexed ~ Early 1940 ~
Rules and objectives
The Italian government has declared the following in it's adress to the forumites:
*We will not declare war unless an event of importance demands it.
*We will not join an alliance unless an event of importance demands it.
*We will not sell our soldiers like cattle nor will we buy other soldiers as cattle.
*We may send our soldiers in aid of other countries acting under our guidance.
*We may form or free puppets.
The mission stands as follows:

Protection of the homeland,
Reclaiming of Dalmatia,
End of capitalist imperialism in Europe and Africa,
End of communist decadence in Europe.
The Boot walks - Italy Rises - Expansion in Africa.
January 1st 1936.
El Duce has declared total reorganization of the armed, naval and air forces of Italy in an attempt to better organise the nations defensive and offensive capabilities. The process is thought to be costly, over 300 cubic meters of Oil will be consumed but it is deemed necessary as the Italian forces today are to scattered to be able to defend this long and narrow peninsula we all call our home.
In other news the Italian army is advancing through the mountains and deserts of Ethiopia, facing little resistance. The Ethiopian forces are in complete disorganization and it is assumed they will be making their last stand in main capital Adis Ababa. Their failure to hold of the Italian army at every point and every turn truly illustrates their lack of will to fight for its corrupt leadership. While our forces mission there is to secure a safe and calm enviroment for our brave pioneers one must assume that we are also doing a huge favor to the Ethiopians.
El Duce has thus declared that Ethiopia will not fall under Italian occupation despite it's unprovoked earlier skirmishes against our farmer communities and instead will fall under Italian protection.
