Chapter II: Building Up for the Inevitable Part I
A series of new laws is enacted.
44 brigades are required to obtain the “Regional Power” international status. Garrisons are the best way to reach it; they give some infantry practical and I believe they’ll be useful in defending the long static line!
A bunch of events happen on 2nd January. I’m going for GBP for operational doctrine and infantry doctrine is decided to be SF. Units directly in combat are to be targeted first and in the air attacking bombers is the priority.
I don’t want to change my civil laws, as now I’m given research efficiency, directly influencing my leadership output. I don’t care about my ruling party at all as you can see.
Reorganization of the war ministry is welcomed, as it gives me a nice leadership bonus in a tradeoff for a few IC-days.
On 2nd February, Rhineland is re-occupied by Germans.
I start selling metal, as I’ll always have an abundance of it. No need to run into storing penalties.
On 24th March, the first batch of garrison units is finished.
What is even better that placing these units allowed me to gain additional two leadership points.
April has barely started and some not-so-democratic countries have already antagonized the democratic ones a little.
On 2nd June, Yugoslavia can now call itself a regional power after finishing the training of remaining garrison divisions.
After that, production queue is filled with building fortifications in the north against (currently) Austrian border. On a side note, Ethiopia surrenders to Italy on 11th June.
Summer Olympics took place in Berlin.
More bad news comes on 3rd October, as the Italians signed a treaty with Germany, effectively cementing these countries’ friendship and cooperation.
On 1st March 1937, standing army is finally introduced. It took fairly long to get it going!
On 21st March, the government is proposed a program of increasing the industrial output of the country. This way, Yugoslavia now has 35 IC!
On 28th May, hostilities begin, with the main players in the conflict being Japan and its puppets against Nationalist China and their allies,
That’s it for this one. I hope you enjoyed it!
