Thread: Liberating India

  1. #1

    Liberating India

    I'm currently playing a game as Japan. I've conquered all of India and Burma. I noticed India has a core on most of those provinces. Is it possible to liberate India as a puppet? (I'm having a lot of difficulty supplying my troops there).

    you can only liberate nations whose provinces you own, not only control
    Just because everyone is capable of having an opinion doesn't mean that nobody is full of shit.

    The lack of Belgian patriotism is easily demonstrated by this: there is 1 somewhat succesfull (AKA it's sometimes heard on radios) pro-belgium song and it's sung and written by a dutch man (not an immigrant either, someone who still lives in the Netherlands)

    India is "the jewel of the crown", british territory. I think you must beat the UK.

    Is there a way I can come to own India? I don't think I can add that as a war goal, can I?

    UK can liberate India. If you annex the UK, you can liberate India. And Israel. And Syria. Etc.

    I think you can add it as a wargoal, but even if you do, it still won't be "yours" till the UK gives it up.

    If you are having trouble supplying troops there (trust me, I understand), you can:

    A) start a massive INFRa project in China/Yunnan (that's where the bottleneck most likely is; most of india's INFRA is great)
    B) reduce your troopcount in India. Easiest method... if you are "defending" the area with divisions of, say, 3xINF, then reduce it to 2xINF for now. But keep the ports covered ;p
    C) Go invade London and kick the UK out of the game. Of course, that may very well BE the end of the game.

    and of course, you can always reserach the supply throughput techs ahead of schedule. It helps a bit.

    An improvement to supplies, with (I surmise) a minimal invasion of code and processor power. --sadly locked due to thread necromancy rules, but I'm happy to re-start this discussion if you are--
    And Lastly...
    Nationalist China, with that "Fresh New Wiki" smell!

    The Indian peninsula all the way to the borders with Siam is not addable as a wargoal :/

    Only variant is to annex the UK, then release puppet.. No other way.

    You are probably better off with India as occupied territory and running a collaborationist govt. Annexing would REALLY hammer your supply lines. Make sure you limit troops in India to the very least you can get away with, manually run supply convoys straight from Tokio to Calcutta, and try to limit the fuel burners in India. You can also pull up your supply map, look at the supply path into India and as themousemaster said raise the infrastructure on that path. Also try to reduce revolt risk along that path to reduce the supply drain. And make sure whatever port is your supply depot is garrisoned!
