Spanish civil war broke out june/july 1936.

And a lot of factories finished, I am finally ready to start producing stuff.

I made some money with supplies, then I did the purge and got rid of the dissent with National Research and National Infrastructure decisions.

0041.png


Used spare IC on supplies to build up my reserves, and then I set into production 4 art, 2 mtn and 2 cav;

1937 Air Carriers researched! (I got blueprint from National Research).

0043.png


Setting 4 into production, finished in June 1939 (perfect timing). I will make 4 at least more before Pearl Harbour.

Assuming military control of my allies.

0045.png


Marco-polo incident is here! And I am almost finished fixing my forces. I will probably attack in a month or two, since there are some good bonuses being in war.

First units built! And some of the INF are turning into MAR. My plan is to have 10 MAR divisions, the 5 I started with, and 5 I am upgrading from the regular INF.

Technology screen. I am just keeping up on everything, and not researching anything before earliest 6-9 months before year of tech.

Event, chose "Put pressure on Germany"

0084.png



Signing the Anti Comitern Pact. I am not going into the Axis though.
0085.png


Forgot I had planes at Beijing. Transferred them out, and put the garrisons that where right next to Beijing into Beijing.
0086.png


Big battle, but soon support from Pingliang when the 11 divs arrive there.
0087.png


Split my 8 corp of CAV from my puppet into two corps of 4. Ge'ermu is the goal, as it is a victory point province.

Production update

When I finish these 6 art, I have art on every INF division. I am only have art on INF divisions, not on MTN.
0096.png


I saw first now that I got some INF divions in my production que after annexing Communist China, I will produce them (set the one serial down to 1) and make one of the art serials longer, giving me a total of 26 divisions of INF w/art organized into 13 corps. I will also add one tank destroyer to every corps (13 total) when I get it researched. These will be my "heavy fighting units" in flat terrain.

The ships that started in my production from the start of the scenario are all soon finished

0097.png


Adding 2x99 of Transports, and 1x99 of Escorts as I have some spare IC to use. I don't want to be in the situation don't have enough transports.
0098.png



I am also making 6 out of the 12 factory runs longer, so they go until september 1938. I am basing this on, that in early 1943 they will pay off 100% for sure, maybe already from late 1942.

Technology update. Just finished Land Doctrine; Mass Assault (and new artillery 1938). Hoping the land doctrine will give be the little extra on the battlefield.

0120.png


Reorganizing front. And planning new attacks.
0121.png


Finished 12 new factories! And six runs are finished, giving me 30 IC less on IC production, and 12 extra base IC (maybe around 16 effective). Now I can produce more troops.

Losing battle

Retreated.

Attacking, one I will abandon.

Technology update
I am rushing Semi-Modern Battleship. I am thinking about building 4 more CV's and then 4 BB's and something like 12 DD's. The 1939 Battleship, has a speed of 30, and is ideal with the 1937 CV with a speed of 30. The Battleships are to give protection in bad weather. I will then also add 4 CA's, 8 CL's and 6 DD's, the CA's and CL's I already have (with speed at least of 30).

I am also looking into getting teched up the attachments to ships, so I can start producing them. And from middle of 1938 I will start researching lots of 1939 techs (mot/mtn/arm).
0127.png


Production update

These will soon be finished and freeing up around 13,5 IC.

0128.png


Added two series of transport 1936.
