So you're invading Mexico, eh? Good luck!

Does this mod allow peace between countries (unlike vanilla HOI 3)? If so, then you might find annexations will eventually even the borders out as the powerful or lucky countries agglomerate. Vulnerable countries will become parts of less vulnerable neighbors, and so the game should settle eventually into a more balanced state, or so I believe.

Very interesting!

May 1st 1938 - June 2nd 1938

The plans for invasion of Ethiopa and Bolivia were simple ones. My tank and motorised divisions surrounded the Ethiopian capital of Anacoco as they were unsuitable for the mountainous terrain of the south.

11rrd00.jpg


Ten Infantry divisions was deemed all that was necessary to subdue them.

15i9ulu.jpg


After 6 days of fighting, Anacoco was cut off from the sea. Ethiopia had only one VP and so this would be a short war.

52i25k.jpg


My actions did not go unnoticed.

w0rxis.jpg


Meanwhile Finland finally joined the bandwagon, deciding it was time to head north into Alsace-Lorraine.

2vayul5.jpg


A Bolivian Division was cut off early while the majority of my forces headed south to make it harder for it to be rescued.

2r720k5.jpg


Although numerically outnumbered, their fighting ability was notably higher than the Italians however my forces were able to subdue them on the 11th.

2mo18yd.jpg


However this belief was quickly changed after fighting further south resulted in clear victory.

f254ih.jpg


Meanwhile elsewhere in the world. Austria was making progress in the south of ComChina.

30bjm8z.jpg


As the divisions pressed on through the northern plains, there were quickl approaching a very large obstacle.

286ttg8.jpg


2njln9i.jpg


Corporal Paladino breathlessly sat on a rock at the summit of a rocky "hill" they had spent the day climbing. He pulled out his canteen and drank from it while looking down into the valley. The rest of his platoon were close behind, his squad had been chosen to be the first ones to be shot at. Private Davids having just reached the top collapsed equally breathless in the the shdaow of Paladino's rock.
"Ah Jesus, not another one."
"John I welcome you to the Sierra Madre Oriental. A thousand kilometres of fun."
"You call this fun?"
"I see we've already lost your sarcasm detecting abilities." They sat in silence for a while the rest of the platoon reached the top and collapsed on the ground. "Nice view though."
"Yeah..." he nodded in agreement.

Victory in Anacoco!

13z8jev.jpg

After libertating these lands from the mysterious Ethiopians, cheering crowds flowed on the streets. However unlike before in College Station, order was quickly imposed. Cleveland, Westpoint, Tuscaloosa and Jackson were at last reconnected to the rest of the country.

There was a pleasing lack of resitance from the remnants of the two countries I had removed from my lands. Some Italian supporters had holed themselves in Temple but they were being rounded up.

6szwye.jpg


Finlands conquest was over. If you can see that tiny yellow bit in the centre of their country, that is the new puppet city state.

x210s2.jpg


Hours later, unsatisfied with just one country. Finland declared war on two more!

v5bor9.jpg


10ifgph.jpg


I should have mentioned that the first air battle took place over the skies of San Antonio against Bolivian tactical bombers. They were quickly dealt with. One division returns north to take the airfield to prevent any more aerial threats. My fighters still have a very limited range.

js0o7k.jpg


Lithuania knows somethings up.

r79klx.jpg


By the start of June there hadn't been any serious fighthing for two weeks. It felt that the entire Bolivian army was only made up of HQ's.

2mqronc.jpg


The ComChi capital is now on the frontline.

2n9yf7q.jpg


Despite all the odds, Kosovo is still holding out and the Savoians advance seems to have been halted.

10pdr80.jpg


As the foreign minister wrapped up his update on the international situation. Noirtier announced that Admiral Strozier was waiting outside.
"Would it be rude of me to inquire as to why you're meeting the Admiral? You seem to have been meeting with him frequently the past few weeks." Asked Jenney.
"Hm? I've been giving some thought to his Aircraft Carrier idea."
"Surely you're not building such a silly contraption?" The foreign minister laughed.
"Not immediately no. He's been working with a few teams of engineers and ship builders to design a prototype. He is keeping me informed. The designs have come along quite well. Now if you'd be so kind to send him in on your way out."

June 2nd 1938 - September 8th 1938

It took 9 days until any resistance appeared but yet again it was made up of HQ's.

21onxe.jpg


It was decided that all units would stop outside the Capital, Coatcacoalcos in case the entire Bolivian army was holed up there.

fe0v38.jpg


The first infantry division for three weeks was at last spotted. This division would eventually become mildly frustrating.

10nsvw7.jpg


More good news, this lasts till the end of the year!

2eofedj.jpg


I had been chasing an HQ for a long time now and it had been worn down A LOT.

2m349q8.jpg


There is very little resistance in most of the country.

Unlike in Kosovo...

Albeit a much slower advance, the alliance was still advancing.

It seems Finland is also at war with Persia.

Scotland have at last made some progress.

This is the first nation in the Americas to join one of the big three. This country is also allied to Costa Rica. The north has suddenly become more threatening.

My units almost in position.

This infantry division does not know when to quit.

The Capital falls!

2ho9rmu.jpg


28th July

As we marched through the city, glad that so few of us died the people came out of the cellars and watched us march by. Its different to College Station. Theres no cheering crowds, just a hushed group of onlookers. In some windows people have placed flags of the Facist party that had left them before we had reached the city. Everyone looks anxious, a few welcome us as we restore liberty and free speech but few appreciate it. It has been forced on them.


Finland have invaded Mexico.

a3dwdx.jpg


CC have lost their capital!

24350cj.jpg


A new song appeared through the loudspeakers and radios in Kosovo recently. No one is sure who Aperture science is or who has been killed and torn to pieces and burnt in a fire. But the title is believed to be "Still Alive".

This song is also well known to this infantry division....

September 8th

Another war over. I'm exhausted. I also stink. I haven't had a chance to get cleaned up properly since we took Coatcacoalcos. They're setting up some hot showers in the court yard where I've been billeted. We're getting new uniforms too. I keep hearing rumours today about a group of soldiers from the 7-ta being gunned down outside a cafe. Some people are saying three some over fifteen. I hope our division does not have to be posted down here. I'm worried that we're going to be attacked like the guys from the 7-ta as soon as things quieten down here.

September 8th 1938 - January 1st 1939

Upon recieving the news of Bolivias surrender, Victor and a few close friends and Admiral Strozier headed to the port of Oxnard to board his private yacht. It had been a while since he had last sailed out beyond the the horizon but he felt that he needed to get away from it all for a short while. He ordered that their was to be no radio communication unless in any emergancy arose.

It was now the afternoon of the second day. His friends were still sleeping off the night of heavy drinking but he woke up perfectly fine. He had positioned himself on the portside, cast his line out and waited for something to bite. So far nothing was biting and he was quickly drifting to sleep. This was interrupted by Strozier bursting out onto the deck and quickly put his head over the rail then wretched loudly. Victor waited for the Admiral to finish and collapse on the deck.
"Is my navy really lead by an Admiral who gets seasick?" he chuckled. Strozier looked up at Victor before quickly turning his head away in embaressment.
"No, I'm hungover. I apologise you had to see that."
"Well it's to be expected, no one can usually keep up with me anyway."
"With respect sir, you were the first to pass out."
"I had the sense to stop drinking and passing out was the quickest option." He smiled and looked out to see. The smile quickly dissappeared and he shouted, "Someone bring me my binoculars!" A sailor quickly brought them, Victor peered out across the ocean and sighed. "They couldn't just leave me alone for three days now could they?" He handed the binoculars to Strozier.
"It's the Sofija coming towards us at full speed! What's she doing here? Ah they're signalling us! C-U, Cut. E-N-G-I, Engines. P-R-E-P-A, Prepare. To... Be...B-O-A-R-D, Boarded?"
"What? Signal them back and ask why." Another sailor climbed to the top deck outside the bridge and signalled back. Strozier read the reply.
"Return the Prime Minister and Admiral or face lethal force! What the hell is going on?"
"Well I'm going to find out." Victor climbed below deck to the radio room, ordered the radioman to connect with the Sofia, after a short while announcing he had achieved contact, Victor yanked the microphone from the mans hand. "This is Prime Minister Victor, What the bloody hell do you think you're doing?" There was a pause and a familar voice appeared.
"This is Field Marshal Gent, are you alright sir?"
"Yes of course I'm alright! What the hell are you doing here?"
"Rescuing you sir" he replied in a confused tone.
"From what?"
"...the kidnappers sir."
"And what gave you that impression?"
"No one could find you for the past few days."
"I'm on holiday, I left a message."
"We recieved no such message sir, may we come aboard to be certain."
"Fine, fine do what you like but all you will find is pissed off Prime Minister and a group of very hungover personal friends."

After a short while the Sofija pulled along side and a group of soldiers searched the ship. Victor glared angrily everytime the went past. After an exhaustive two hour search, they conceded that Victor was perfectly safe. Gent came onboard to say sorry but instead appeared with maps and lead Victor and the Admiral down below to have a private meeting. Gent unrolled the maps on the table and was about to begin.
"What the bloody hell is this?" asked Victor.
"A tactical update sir."
"I'm on holiday Field Marshal!"
"Well I thought since I was here."
"Fine, fine."

"Our next potential target..."
"Who said anything about invading anywhere else?"
"We annexed Bolivia for no reason sir. Now our next potential target could be New Zealand. This would restore the connection to our final isolated Bulgarian cities. Unfortunately we wouldn't be able to defeat them without going through Indonesia or Uruguay. They are also allied with Xibei San Ma, Uruguay, United Kingdom, Ecuador and Saudi Arabia. The majority of the east coast."

28t7xih.jpg


"To the south is the FRG, another far-right country. Their country is full of jungle, rivers and a few mountains."

k2k0v5.jpg


"The Baltic Union is allied with Galacia. Afghanistan is a potential target to aid the expansion of Galacia. As long as they are the ones who declare war."
"And Costa Rica?"
"They are allied to the UK, Catalonia, Ecuador, Uruguay and Indonesia. Speaking of which, Indonesia is allied to Andalusia also. Hungary is the only other neutral nation."

Now back to the world. Mexico is in fact in Norway and is allied to Columbia. They couldn't escape from Finalnd.

After 7 months of fighting, the stubborn nation of Kosovo at last surrenders. Victor ordered that the nations borders should be open to refugees of this tiny nation and plans drawn up to create a Kosovian branch of the army. Any armed forces needs men who fight with such determination.

20r9tmu.jpg


At the begining of November, a new design was placed on Victor's desk. He sent the Admiral away again to keep improving it.

Meanwhile Austria is quickly advancing northwards in the "soft underbelly".

kal176.jpg


Galacia's army has grown impressively. It has increased by 36 brigades this year alone, while I have only increased by twelve. This is likely due to energy shortages that have no become less of an issue with the annexation of Bolivia. Tactical bombers and tanks are on the way.

Wow. FRG may become your target because it's the only nearby power who isn't part of the Allies, is that correct?

Indonesia and Baltic Union are both part of the Allies, you're part of the Axis... Does this mean when Axis/Allies go to war you're automatically at war with your two most powerful neighbors, or is there some other dynamic at work?

No I'm still "neutral" just now I'm drifting away from the allies towards the axis. There are no axis nations in my side of the world, probably because I've already picked off three of them :). BU won't attack because I am allied to Galacia... in theory. I hope I will be prepared if Indonesia gets high and mighty about my expansion southwards but there are still only 3 out of the 15ish nations in America that are members of the allies.

January 1st - June 1st 1939

Things are quiet at the moment because I am building up my army. Even though I have twice as much IC availible as I had the year before, I am restricted on its usage because I am constantly running into problems aquiring Energy. The Auto-trade is quite content at ignoring this issue and it was not until the end of this session that I managed to get any energy from another country, Euskadi (Next to ComChina).

The first willing country joined the Comintern. It is unlikely they will be able to support each other as Andorra is in the Pacific.

A month has passed, this is not the same image twice, they have litterally not moved.

Unsatisfied, Savoy gets cocky.

Here is Hamburg.

And The Republic of Karelia which occupies the north of Ireland.

It seems that Savoy has angered another neighbour allied with it's targets.

Quite a large neighbour.

Satisifed with the latest blueprints and the need to have some real world experience with them. An aircraft carrier is commissioned. It will take 822 days 0.o

I really want to know why they world hates Jamaica so much. This is also the first country that can actually INVADE some of it's territory.

Another month and the frontlines still haven't moved!

In the north Ceylon might be a problem. In the south Italy has joined the war against Savoy.

After 6 months I have gained 1 Tac bomber and 28 brigades. I still need more to fight the FRG and currently half my army is made up of Mot and LArm. The Amazon Rainforest is HUUUUUUUUUUGE and the VP's cluster on opposite halves leaving a huge gap between them made up of 100% jungle fun. Jungle warfare equipment will completed mid June however there is still concern.

June 1st - September 1st 1939

My god there is a lot of fighting going on. There are countries fighting all over the place! A lot of what I'm posting speaks for itself. A new war for myself is coming, just not until I'm ready.

Complicated stuff ahead, Many countries declare war, many fall!

333y9nl.jpg


This also brings Kyshu into the Axis.

s4cayh.jpg


The blue marks where Paraguay used to exist.

246njmw.jpg


2pydoiv.jpg


Not only has Iceland fallen but Sweden have invaded Macedonia!

2h74cc2.jpg


The Republic of Karelia also got a bit of land out of this war by invading south. This is the first random game I've place where both versions of a country exist right next door to each other. In Ireland was the Republic of Karelia and Karelia meanwhile Nationalist Spain dominates a tiny Republican Spain.

4t857l.jpg


I have no idea where Bosnia was.

o9mtmg.jpg


NSpain has finally broken out into Cornwall.

o9hapu.jpg


Yugoslavia has advanced slightly in the North, Austria has also advanced in the south.

2a0mh5v.jpg


It's looking like Savoy may have bitten off more than it can chew.

10y03e9.jpg


e67vdf.jpg


2rhrdee.jpg


Aaland has invaded Jamaica, perhaps the most hated country in the world will fall?

2qs9ahz.jpg


wankt4.jpg


Wait wha?

ztfyfa.jpg


With the fall of Cornwall, it is upto the German Community of Belgium to continue the fight!

2gxg3nc.jpg


This is one reason why this AAR is unpredictable. ComChina seems to want to commit suicide.

nqwktc.jpg


Savoy falling back on all fronts.

21e18ie.jpg


Perhaps the head of the allies will fall before Communist China?

9gzknd.jpg


29fayyb.jpg


MOAR WAR!

t9d1sl.jpg


This mean Lebanon will be fighting some of ComChina's enemies.

2zqairq.jpg


1e1f0m.jpg


Here's what the current status of the known wars are at the end of this session.

2j2j9k7.jpg


Lebanon seems to be easing the pressure on ComChina.

s3kb68.jpg


I get the strong feeling that ComChina had been keeping several divisions on the Euskadi border. It did not take long for them to advance this far meanwhile the rest of the front is mostly stagnant.

2ednmgy.jpg


GCoB seems to be pushing the nationalist out of Cornwall... or is it Greece?

4kfd41.jpg


Really not good for Savoy.

14sieqo.jpg


I stumbled onto this at the end. There is a huge chunk of Albania that is completely isolated, so three countries are now going to increase dramatically.

2w6um1l.jpg


ac7myp.jpg


ComChina's back up plan has been conquered.

bffkeo.jpg


So what's taking so long? Well this:

3133eyv.jpg


War will not come until november, until the I am a spectator who is also upgrading his equipment and opening access to things that are normally taken for granted, for example; I do not have the ability to construct forts! I need militia small arms 1. I have no militia tech. In this session I have gained a second Tac bomber and some Escorts. In November I will have 20 divisions sitting at the FRG border.

I wish I could make sense of them, and I'm the one playing! Either way, the fighting is all far away from me. Apparantly my part of the world is perfectly stable except for me wanting to grow.

September 1st 1939 - January 1st 1940

Words can not explain how confusing the situation is getting. Take this for example.

243lrw5.jpg


That's not confusing I hear you say. Well let me point out that because of this, this means Austria is now at war with Macedonia and it's allies. This means that Austria are now at war with Euskadi it's neighbour who together had been fighting up through the south of Communist China. So we now have allies fighting ComChina and each other while Lebanon fights ComChina's enemies without being allied to them. Give it some time and it will become more complex.

This is infact the only action that happens in the entire 3 month period between Euskadi and Austria.

ouboqv.jpg


2uz5qg1.jpg


izvq8j.jpg


A third of Macedonia has been conquered so far.

2n80v36.jpg


Savoy still hasn't halted the counter-invasion.

24op0g8.jpg


This stays pretty much the same for 3 months. No point showing only one province being captured every month.

2116nok.jpg


Well this blows a hole in my future plans. I had been hoping to dominate all of South America but it seems that this dream might be put on hold.

2qxusus.jpg


The most vilified insignifcant country is puppetted.

23rjpyv.jpg


Oooooooooookay, this might become the reason why Communist China actually wins after 2 years of fighting.

2u89lpc.jpg


England is allied with brittany so they are already at war with the DPRK. Byelorussia is allied with Yugoslavia, Japan and Macedonia to name a few. So we now have Yugoslavia fighting on two fronts, on the one side a nation that is fresh and probably going to charge straight through the undefended border, on the other a nation that has refused to fall for the past 2 years.

This does not matter, Shanxi is in Eastern Europe while Siam is nort of Iran.

2i6jpj6.jpg


Cyprus is not involved but Peru is now at war with Italy as well (that nation thats kicking the crap out of Southern Savoy). The other green nation is Pakistan, an ally of Saxony. Peru is just plain *Word-that-I'm-probably-not-allowed-to-say*.

2wmlxrl.jpg


Macedonia seems to be unable to halt Sweden.

2icacuc.jpg


England is proving to be successful.

262se45.jpg


Not much change in the south still.

30k3rfb.jpg


Most of Azerbaijan has been taken.

2rdc3vd.jpg


Cuba, a giant country is moving into Albania's isolated territory instead of the smaller nations. Shame.

2qd3od4.jpg


So I have so time to think and since now I have 20 divisions on the border of FRG I think it's time to talk about strategy of Operation Rapture.

29wk4s4.jpg


Force Red is made up of 15 infantry divisions with a mixture mainly consisting of artillery and engineers. This force will push south past the Pananama canel and then fan out southwards to take FRG's only pacific port. During the advance 3 divisions will hold back to isolate the enemy division. The blue force made up of 5 infantry divisions will begin advancing 5 hours after the main force invades, this is incase the enemy retreats immediatly before the pocket is set up. I am about on par in terms of strength with FRG so any division I can knock out will be a priority. After my forces have fanned out and the majority of Force Blue has joined Red they will begin advancing steadily Eastwards. This will inevitably thin my forces out but I shouldn't wait any longer. I do not want to be at war with the Axis.

Whose leader is quickly looking like it will be making a recovery.

Austria has launched a counter attack against Lebanon, driving it out from some of its northern territory however it is still cut off from the majority of it's forces who are fighting the ComChinese.

fd8r54.jpg


Macedonia still not fairing well.

2ytw4t2.jpg


Nor Savoy,

1zr25mx.jpg


Mixed news for Peru.

21vqk0.jpg


Well perhaps just one type of news. This has doubled the size of Saxony.

102phmw.jpg


Italy expands, however this war has put it at war with the German Community of Belgium.

33e3kn5.jpg


Yugoslavia looks to be beaten! Several others look like they are following.

Biplanes are now a thing of the past in Bulgaria as the first monoplanes replace the He-51's that were already outdated upon arrival with the newer PZL P.24 Vastreb*. Air Marshal Gwin proudly flew a wing over the capital during a military fair that showed off Bulgaria's growing military technological achievements. Many of the visitors wooped and applauded. Drawings of the future aircraft carrier** were also displayed. There was comment on the use of the United States flag but this was explained that the man who came up with the final design was formerly a US citizen. However it was not mentioned that Bulgaria's navy still lacked capital ships or that many seafaring nations of the world had Battleships, even Galacia had one.

21e7zg9.jpg


watermark-gif.php


* Historically, the P.24 became a trainer fighter in 1940 and remained so until the USAAF destroyed them all in a bombing raid in 1944. The He-51 was already an outdated aircraft when it served in the condor legion during the Spanish civil war. It became a CAS craft after failing to impress as a fighter next to its more modern counterparts, especially when the first Soviet aircraft appeared. It still suffered high casualties despite this.

** This is the prewar USS Saratoga CV-3 in 1936. They later painted it with dazzle camoflage and again in a different pattern during the war. And added a giant 3 at the end of the flight deck. I have no idea why there is Japanese katakana on the image.
