A RANDOM AAR - 10-Afr
This is going to be just a 2 post presentation of a game that I have completed while searching for an error in the save file for my Russian AAR.
I have used RandRoad mod. Made a scenario - 10 countries in Africa. Starting tech is 44 USA
The name is 10-Afr and you can find it here
NOTE: I forgot to turn on battle scenario, so the rest of the world is just unclamed provinced. You will crash if you enter them. Also crossing the Suez canal does the same, though there are no VP's in Sinai.â, so you're ok in ignoring it.
Here is a map of the situation:
Yellow is Romania, Beige is Manchuko, Blue (North) is Greece, Orange (Both) is Namibia, Brown is Belgium, Blue-Grey is France, Blue (South) is -somebody can't remember-, Light Green is Shanxi, Dark Green is Ukraine and Turquoise is Luxemburg.
France has the most starting ICs, the next is Belgium. I chose Romania because it's harder to play, but it has the economy and starting army to get itself going and a start position that narrows the terrain where the first battles take place.
Notice the drafted army. That will change.
Pretty soon, Manchuko DOWed me. The front was static until I created 12 Mechanized divisions. I took them, with a little help from Greece. Next up was Namibia, But Greece took their most important province and the rest of the country was about 200 km away, so I DOWed Greece too. After a long Desert campaign where I first used 3 Arm divisions, I took out both of them by 1939-1940. Getting Cape Verde was a bitch.
BUT. I had my navy sunk 3 times, luckily no divisions were being transported when my transporters were sunk. First Manchuko airbombed my start Transport in port. Then the Namibian fleet destroyed my transport+escort fleet 2 times. I started building BBs and CVs, but it would take a while, and another enemy would claim my fleet
It was time to invade Luxemburg. Luxemburg conquered Shanxi, and also participated in the dismembering of -thet south blue country- along with France.
CAS standing by to support ground troops for the first time
Next (and last) update coming as soon as I can write it.
