A DH Kaiserreich AAR
Serbia, in the Kaiserreich timeline, suffered a loss in the Weltkrieg, and it's territories were divided upon between Albania (Kosovo), and Bulgaria (Macedonia and eastern Serbia). Serbia has been reduced to it's pre-first-balkan-war territory, and has a weakling economy and industry. Here is Serbia, the Russia of the Balkans:
As you can see, Serbia is not a very strong nation. With most of it's former territory gone, and a weak army to boot, Serbia not only has little room to expand, but also little opportunity to grow. And then I notice something... Maybe if I manage to rush them before Romania can possibly join in, maybe I can take over Albania and reconquer Kosovo? It's worth a shot. But that cannot happen right this second, I must setup my industry (or at least what's left of it) and prepare defense plans. My main goal is to basically befriend the Austrian empire as much as possible, until it collapses. Once it is in it's little civil war with Hungary, I might be able to take Bosnia, Montenegro, and/or Vojvodina back. But alas, that is MAJOR long term. Off I go to try and fix this mess of an industry
I'm focusing on reinforcements so I can get Serbia's army back to full strength, in preparation for the invasion of Albania in Operation Kosovo is Serbia. But we must adjust our cabinet and policies first!
The first thing I did for slider movement was move 1 towards Hawk Lobby. It will really help with taking down dissent, and faster troop build times. I also made Petar Bojovic my Chief of the Army, because I found the old minister's faster Armor building is irrelevant, as Serbia does not have any armor tech of any kind. This new guy will make infantry train faster, and that is what I need now. I also changed the Chief of Staff to Draza Mihajlovic, as he grants +10 unit speed. This will help me (at least a little bit) in my goal to swiftly overrun Albania.
Now onto industry: I am building an IC in Belgrade, to increase it's IC to 10. And also increasing the infrastructures of Uzice and Sabac so I can start building IC there as well.
I decided to go with infantry research, seeing as how my Cavalry is for the most part up-to-date, but my Infantry itself is rather obsolete. To much surprise, it is researching pretty fast. But now... Operation Kosovo is Serbia is a go...
