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


Recommended Posts

So here we go... We'll play mirror games with the 3H mod so I can learn from Terif and test the mod...

We start it in pbem and may do some part on TCP...

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 (as I set a base of 2000 to Russia in the mod now).

Turn 1

No much, invasion of Poland going on, no Breakthrough. (In this mod, Poland may fall in turn 1 with a breakthrough and some German commitement)

Dow on Danemark, naval bombing only.

German sub sunk in return, the second one damaged - only french ships nearby to be attacked by the sub smile.gif . Sub in the Med also attacked and reduced to str 1.

French defenders entrenching and waiting for the enemy - some british expeditionary forces occupy the empty hex SW of Brussel.

Allies turn 3:

The french ships sacrificed their lives to spot the subs and protect the more valuable british fleets smile.gif .

The last 2 subs in the Atlantic sunk, the german cruiser surounded and heavily damaged - a horde of 12 british ships (including some str 1/2 ships :D ) + 2 carriers did their job smile.gif .

So all 4 german subs outside the baltic dead now, the cruiser will follow next turn.

LC: German understrength corps SW of Brussel killed in return and replaced by a french one.

Allies turn 5:

Allied navy (including a french task force) takes revenge and sinks a german battleship. The sub survives at str 3 by diving.

French med units arrive in France to help the defenders - since Ireland starts allied, italian readiness will not be increased by an allied DoW and they can leave the Med empty for some turns. Now positions are occupied again by UK units smile.gif .

Without free french option the french Med units move to their home country to die in battle smile.gif .

Allies turn 6:

Also not enough ground units left, so 1 exposed hex has to be left empty at the front, otherwise defence line in good shape.

Around London the victorious combined french-british fleet returns from the sub hunt. Over a dozen experienced battleship and cruiser divisions arrive: German ship destroyed, another one + sub surounded and heavily damaged, the str 3 UK sub went on a last suicide mission and sacrificed its live for the queeen :D .

Allies turn 7:

Prinz Eugen escaped at str 6, but 2 more german subs are at the bottom of the sea, another sub damaged smile.gif . Now it is also clear why Germany only has 3 AFs: most of its mpps had been used to reinforce the understrength (originally 4,4,6,8) subs to full strength, costs around 468 mpps - so these mpps are missing in the french campaign smile.gif .

In France the scouting tank that moved too far away from its own troops gets destroyed by several french armies, defence line set up again.

Time for some action in the Med:

During the last turns Allies prepared a preemptive strike against Italy - that´s why readiness was rising again smile.gif (Allies have to use the french ships before they will surrender when Paris falls):

Allies DoW Italy. A surprise attack by the french navy destroyed cruiser, sub and a battleship, second battleship reduced to str 6 in port - only one UK ship will have to die next turn for this operation :D . Several army and corps transports standing at the italian costs - landing not allowed this turn, but in the following one. A greek army bravely attacks Albania.

Losses so far:

Germany: 7 subs, 3 ships.....(2 subs, 3 ships left)

Italy: 1 sub, 2 ships............(2 ships left)

France: 2 ships...................(5 subs, 4 ships left)

UK: 2 subs, 4 ships.............(1 sub, 17 ships left)

May 12, 1940 (Allies T 8):

- UK units in France retreat to ports, 4 french units defend Paris and build a straight line from the channel south. Paris fully entrenched, should survive one more turn since only 1 german AF in range - bomber also too far away and used for ship hunting.

- The last french ships go on kamikaze mode :D ...3 of them sacrificed to damage the italian ships in port and to spot the german sub near Denmark, both german subs heavily damaged (str 2 + 6), Prinz Eugen down to str 5.

- french Beirut corps land near Bari, cut off Sicilys supply and damages the battleship in port.

- Tripoli empty and occupied

- italian army near Tobruk destroyed by a combined land-sea-air operation (UK + greek army landed),Tobruk under heavy attacks, UK transports around the italian mainland. Greek army again reduces the italian defenders in Albania.
