The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Glad to have you aboard. And rest assured, the Vampire will feature... eventually... Lots of stuff will. In fact, the later Chapters of this AAR will be nice for people who are interested in British Aviation or the lack thereof in the period from 1945 onwards.
When NA is wrapped up, there will be a time for everything that made the Med theatre so awesome. Fleet Actions, with the French Navy, material for lots of War Films will be made, and most of all, the Battle of Britain!
gaiasabre11 Who knows. The follow-on AAR I am planning will probably describe all taht in detail. It will be part of the HOI3 section though. Eventually. By the time I am through with AAO, we'll all probably have flying cars. As for the French naval battles... You may not like what you read. o
While the Carriers were able to carry around ninety Aircraft apiece ... and the industrial might of the Americans, even though weakened through the Civil War, was so great that the British Empire would only manage to overtake it in the 1960s.
gaiasabre11 I orient myself at the Yorktown and Essex Classes from OTL when it comes to numbers, and according to Wikipedia, they carried around nintey Aircraft. With deck parks and a different armour scheme wile also being somewhat larger overall than in OTL, the Illustrious and Implacable classes should manage that.
As for the Industry, it's merely roleplaying. I figured that a war effort of the OTL scale would be hard on a economy that has not only gone through a Civil War recently but is also 'run' by Communists, so a small decline is realistic. At the same time after the war Imperial Industry will expand, both through the earlier Industrialization of India and the general fact that they have to help re-build a continent.
I estimate that the US with Civil war + depression will lower it's industrial output by two-thirds, but of course it also meant that they can recover quickly once things settle down, or some total mobilization for the motherland. However, if the Americans do get a bunch of "five year plans" like the Soviets did in the OTL, things will be hard to say. But, on the other hand, I think you are including the Industrial strengths of the Dominions with your "Imperial Industry", so yes, I do agree that the British Empire can have more industrial muscle strengths than the Yanks, but probably not by too much.
It is without the Industrial strength of Canada and the ANZACs, but other than that, yes. I like the idea of a possible Cold War between countries with about equal strength Industry wise. In the long run though the British Empire has one up on the Americans for the simple reason taht the British are a Social Market Economy and therefore Capitalist.
