A moments distraction (cat on the keyboard) results in the loss of Germany's first capital ship and several light cruisers.

Send word to the Führer- Blondie is needed on the front lines.

Fresh from the Polish campaign the Wehrmacht ound itself in the west, probably outnumbered and still equipped with obsolete equipment. Almost a thid of the army was made up of poorly trained militia and even some of the regular army was equiped with 1936 era weapons. There was only one solution.
ScreenSave0-6.jpg


At sea the Kriegsmarine has been decimating the Royal Navy- nlt the largest fleets can engage the Kriegsmarine marauders. New training techniques should play havoc with the RN in the Atlantic.
ScreenSave1-5.jpg


Almost forgot about the dutch. Almost all German units along the border have older equipment- the best units are in France.
BOBBY.jpg


Vice Admiral Bohm continues the rampage against the English fleet. Missing a pair of battlecruisers the Graf Spee and Admiral Scheer engage Britsh convoys. The RN have been quiet this month.
ScreenSave3-4.jpg


Paris falls but the blitzkrieg runs into trouble in Belgium. Insufficent units on the ground causes problems. A French counter attack throws the Heer back. Air support is essentially non existent due to battle damage.
Bobby2.jpg


Not to be outdone the Italians declear war on the Greeks. One day Italy may make a good ally, but not yet.
Bobby3-1.jpg


Oops. The panzers get cut off. The Paris garrison leads the counterattack.

Despite some difficulties on the ground, the French asked for peace. The Vichy regime was established as Panzers reached the Atlantic coast. 1919 was avenged.

ScreenSave7-4.jpg


Yugoslavia and Italy have a falling out. Germany considers their options.
ScreenSave8-6.jpg


At sea Saalwachter encounters a small British fleet. After a brief battle all ships are sunk- no survivors. The RN seemed to spend alot of time hiding in October- only 119 convoys were sunk and 17 escorts and very few surface ships. Where are they?

ScreenSave9-2.jpg


Bohm leading the smaller fleet encounters one of the British main fleets. Only for battlecruisers and a pair of heavy cruisers the Graf Spee and Admiral Scheer engage the Britsh. Despite being heavily outnumbered superior speed and training help. It is decided to engage the Britsh fleet.
ScreenSave10-3.jpg


After several hours the German fleet retreats due to superior firepower. 2 more light cruisers are subk, however the British lose 2 carriers and a heavy cruiser.Donitz considers a new strategy. In order to engage the British, just send out Vice Admiral Bohm. Guranteed he will find a large fleet!!!!

ScreenSave11-3.jpg


Despite not being allied with Italy, it is decided to intervene. Yugoslavia must be destroyed.

Happy new year. 1940!!! After the fall of France new naval bombers were supposed to be ordered. German scientist never bothered researching them. Even worse Italy had blueprints for them, but Germany never traded for them. Oops.

I've played ahead of my updates. Post replys faster:) There may be some Sealion action but it wasn't planned as such. The tip of the German spear is the only modern units you really need. Over half the army at one point was miltia and 36 inf. HQs and panzers is all you really need. I'm also convinced BC>BB for Germany at least.

I'm surprised the Italo-Yugoslav war didn't turn into a BCF. Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary usually all join in whenever I attack France before all the GoIs expire.

Great job so far.
Will you release Romania as a puppet ? Maybe more effective in terms of oil production in the long run.

Which leads to Norawy surrendering. Despit its weak military, Norway lasts longer than the Poles, French, or Yugoslavs.

Norwegian naval units fleeing to England get intercepted by Saalwachter. The results are predictable. The Norwegian campaign is over.

Four more battlecruisers are complete. A fleet review takes place in the Baltics. Bohms flotilla is brought up to full strength, while Vice Admiral Marschall takes command of a new fleet. Due to British sabotage, 2 more BC are delayed and are scheduled to be completed in June. Once again the heavy cruisers Graf Spee, Admiral Scheer, Deutschland stand in for the missing battlecruisers. A shortage of modern light cruisers also results in some older models (lvl III) being deployed in Marschall's fleet.

VA Bohm conducts aggressive recon against the British and claims a victim- hopefully the Royal Navy will come out to play. For the first time he has the full complement of X6 BC.

The RN decides to foray out in force. Retreat is considered but orders are to engage the enemy fleet.

Reinforcements rush to the scene as the battle rages. Lacking dedicated naval bombers the Luftwaffe scambles some tactical bombers.

The Royal Navy loses 2 bttleships and virtually no damage is inflicted on the Kriegsmarine units. It is believed the fleeing British ships made it to Norwich.

Sensing a moment of weakness an impulsive decision is made to launch Operation Sealion several months early. 2 Kriegsmarine fleets are ordered to patrol the eastern "English" Channel while the last fleet blocks the western approaches. Submarine packs are lso deployed nearby in an effort to slow down an incursions by the Royal Navy.

The 3rd and last battle of Dover results in another victory. German marines are almost ashore.

Panzers are rushed to the scene. A breakout is ordered.

Diplomatic efforts to bring Spain into the Axis have failed. The German fleet requires access to the naval bases at Alexandria. Gibraltar must fall.....
