What exactly are the benefits for you for joining the axis now instead of after Vichy, or so?
Will you get some licensed runs from Germany?
Immediate expansion in Africa once Poland gets attacked?
Because now you will have to garrison all the beaches in Portugal, and are dependent on Germany once war start.
Is it really worth it to defend your African provinces?
Thats quite an emphasis on forts you (still) put up there. Is this realy wise? A single fort will reduce the attacker to 90% of his abilities - or give your forces a 10% advantage on that front.
However would the same Industrial effort be directed into bulding new units for that front or improving their equipment, then a much larger benefit for our troops could be achieved. Additionally those forces could be shifted over theaters in the future to adapt to new strategic situations, while the forts will always remain right where they are.
Forts have their place when other means are not available due to frontage or supply capacity, and can be very effective when build to a high level (building from level 9 to level 10 will double the effectiveness of our forces, as compared to a 10% improvement of the first level).
Given a 70% bonus to defenders 2 divisions defending, 20*1.7 = 34 strength 5 divisions attacking, 50 = 50 strength = huge attacker advantage Given a 70% malus to attackers 2 divisions defending, 20 = 20 strength 5 divisions attacking, 50*0.3 = 15 strength = significant defender advantage
