AAR 3H - Terif (Axis) vs Desaix (Allies)


Recommended Posts

Second part of the mirror games with Desaix´s 3H Szenario.

First part with Desaix Axis

Options are:

- No Free French

- Minor historical

House rules: no land on dow and no AA.

We used 1/1/2/10 (Fr/Uk/US/USSR) bid system and used a 100 bid. That makes 100 mpps UK, 100 France, 200 USA, 3000 Russia.

Turn 1:

In this scenario Allies start with understrength units in the west, so no chance for a LC gambit or any other threat during the first turns. Additionally the german units in the east start with 1 experience so with a full scale attack Warsaw will usually fall within the first strike. Therefore Germany decides to use everything in Poland: Warsaw conquered, the last 3 polish survivors surrender. Denmark under attack.

Axis turn 5:

As Allies had to notice they have not enough mpps/units without disbanding the bomber, so the second defence line in France is only partially completed.

German tank forces break through and reach Paris on a broad front, 3 allied units destroyed, Ardennes conquered too. Northern France under german control. Paris will fall in probably 2 turns.

- French battleship destroyed near Triest

- UK ships damaged near Canada, the sub there will die next turn, another sub still hiding and raiding.

July 14, 1940:

- Axis land heavy ground forces in Italy after battleships and bombers reduced Athens entrenchment. Athen conquered, Greece surrenders.

- italian reinforcements land in Tobruk, transports move into position for the african campaign

- UK WDT tank transport and Wavell transport spotted outside Tobruk (what are they doing in transports !?)...a german sub is curious and wants to ask the tank transport why it is swimming there, unfortunately its commander got panic and sunk its (str 4) boats when he saw the sub approaching :D . After this reaction an italian battleship held the right security distance to avoid the same accident with the HQ transport ;) .

July 28 1940

Well, this was a secret operation called "operation Bonaparte"... The english learnt it at the end of the XVIIIth century when Bonaparte came back from Egypte... So, as English are not any stupid than the French and as the Italian Navy is not any better than the Royal navy, the British Queen decided to launch this operation to retrieve Wavell from Egypt...

Obviously one of the two statements was wrong ;) ...

Wavell back to Egypt...

No much else you can see elsewhere smile.gif ...
