Sneaky bastards!The danger to Soviet interests of the Japanese entry into the war against Manchukuo for the Allies was soon obvious. Their units that had been transiting back through Manchukuo under truce now became active belligerents – mostly as French expeditionary forces! It also built a ‘wall’ of impassable French-controlled provinces in the path of the Soviet units driving on Harbin.
GOD I AM SO ANGRY RIGHT NOW I think it wouldn't quench my anger even if there were unlimited nukes and you nuked every single allied provinceAnd once again, the Soviets were shafted by the settlement, forced to surrender all the territory they had seized to that point, not even getting a consolation prize. [At this point it occurred to me that perhaps @Wraith11B had hacked into my game with one of his 18 spare computers and was running the French remotely, such was their ability to forestall my every move .]
I fear the frog-munchers will also find a way to claim them as their puppetAfghanistan was now left as the sole Axis member. And they were only at war with the Comintern.
Maybe leave Afghanistan alone so that the lend lease doesn't end? At least until jet engine is discovered and all air wings upgraded to it?It increased from around 70 IC to 183.7 IC over night! This raised Soviet IC to a total of 514, from 400, at a time when supply demand was at all-time lows, upgrades were around 37 IC and consumer goods about 31 IC and reinforcement requirements minimal.
Are there any nice neutral targets to puppet in the meanwhile? Sweden? Xibei San Ma?The month ended with units making for their new defensive lines in the east and no new battles in Afghanistan.
