• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Bhutan. Battleships. Don't usually see those in the same sentence.

Playing as Bhutan, 1936 scenario, my sole goal will be to construct a battleship.

Doesn't matter if I get annexed right away.

Note that this will be less story-like than most AARs.

The outlook is bleak. Bhutan is impoverished, weak, and most importantly, landlocked.

Lets take a look.

Research: Basic Naval Armament and Armor, estimated tiime to complete 600 days.

Construction: New factories in Bhutan. ETC, 360 days.

I'm assuming that by interesting, you actually mean boring?

Its gonna take two years to research a single tech...

January 11: France has seen fit to boost our military potential, by teaching us the Motorized Warfare Doctrine. If only we could afford trucks...
February 14: Yemen, another of our great friends has also bossted our military might, by teaching us the Specialized Warfare Doctrine.
March 13: Our neighbors in Nationalist China have made a pact with the COmmunist Chinese to help deal with Siam.
May 5: South Africa, another charitable nation, has helped us analyze our experiences from the Great War.

June 1, 1936

The outlook is still bleak.

We are only 2 percent completed with Basic Naval Armament and Armor. Perhaps a friendly nation will help us out. Perhaps not.

July 21: Oman has given us the concept of a 'Flying Circus.' If only we had planes.
October 6: Oman has come forward again, this time with further analysis of the Great War.
October 24: The United Kingdom, our Lords and Masters, have taught us the proper Combat Unit Transport Procedure. Hopefully, we can someday contribute to his Majesty's fine armies.
November 8: Oman, once again, has contributed information and technology, this time information on how to launch aircraft from ships. They call it 'Naval Aviation.' Not only do we still lack aircraft, we also don't have any ships.
November 11: Nepal gave us the concept of a Naval Base Defense policy. If we had navy bases, this might be useful.

January 1, 1937: Our ndustrial output increased, as a payoff from last years investment.

Bleak, as usual.

You should edit the saves so you have claims on the British path to the sea. Maybe they'll give in :).

Great AAR. Looking forward to see how you take over the region with your mighty navy.

Question. Why does Nepal have Naval Base Defense tech? They're landlocked too!

DoW Tibet and annex them. The only thing standing in your way is several low infra provinces, since they have no army. Could boost your IC by a whole 4 or so points!

Wouldn't the dissent hit slow him down seriously though?

Anyway, after "Nukes for Nepal" I suggest you do "Transports for Tannu Tuva", landlocked by their allies, should be interesting. :D

Wow! Lots of enthusiasm here.

Didn't really expect that. This started out as a pet project, but I've been galvanized into succeeding. However many tries it takes.

The plan so far is this:
Annexing Tibet.
Annexing Afghanistan.
Annexing Persia.
Begin construction.

Whether or not that plan will work, I don't know. At first, however, I will do this with no mods, no editing, nothing. If that doesn't work, then I will consider changing.

After this, Nukes for Nepal, and Transports for Tannu Tuva, I think I'll die of boredom and/or futility. If that's possible.

Thanks for the luck. I will be needing it.

An update will be following sometime later tonight.
