Those AI moods are fun. Especially when it leads to the Wehrmacht seeing one gap in the Soviet line, pouring 70% of their forces into it, and inevitably getting stuck inside a pocket the size of Romania. (I have a picture, want me to post it?)
On the AAR: Jolly good show with them submarines chap!
Its a pity that the AI is so focussed on gaps rather than strategic goals. But then I assume this'll steadily improve.
What a victory against Kriegsmarine.
Subs on the Baltic?
a victory in my terms is getting out a naval battle with no losses. In effect, I tend to find I can lose once and scuttle back into port, with a lot of damaged ships but no (or few) permanent losses.
Given your limited (and mostly obsolete) resources, you're getting a lot of bang for the buck from your navy. Good job.
So how do you plan to expand the navy, for when the Germans are on the run? You won't be able to compete directly... Use naval bombers and subs instead?
I'm going to reprise my naval strategy from 'Red Sheep' build enough BBs as the core of the active fleets - I don't care if they are out of date they are hard to sink. Then operate close to shore so as to maximise land based air cover and lots of hit and run. My hope is come the need to invade the UK the Germans will be very low on fuel, so its going to be how to deal with Japan that'll be the key.
But the subs are awesome, really impressed with their effectiveness, for not much IC on reinforcing them I've done a lot of IC damage to Rumania and helped the UK out in N Africa.
