KJF Strategy

This is a response to the KJF strategy discussed. If Britain builds IC India and holds it with less than 5 Inf + 2 Fighter , it is very vulnerable to Japan on Turn 1. Japan can attack it with two Infantry, four Fighters, and the Bomber in Japan. There's about a 40% chance the British AAA India will ...

Infantry values

Dear I.L., If this were a classic Avalon Hill style game I would agree with you. As I showed in a previous post, with the attack @ 1, defend @ 2 infantry of A&A Classic, all the attacker needs is 1.7 : 1 odds to prevail. He needs nothing like 3:1 odds, because the repeated cycles of combat allowed i...

Unit Costs & Capabilities

Dear I.L., If you would look at my post more carefully, you would see that the order of the values is COST, MOVEMENT ALLOWANCE, ATTACK, DEFENSE. Only Chinese infantry attack at "1" on d12. The reason for this is that the Chinese army had little offensive capability, being the least well armed of the...

Always you miss the point

Friends, The point of the "inverse square" problem is not that you should buy only infantry. It is that, in the game, infantry is far more cost-effective than it should be relative to other units. In the game, one does need a tank or two to scamper across open range. The West needs transports and so...

Convoy zones

Dear K-hund, Now, your answer to my objection #2 several posts back was unsatisfactory. Unsatisfactory sir! You may recall that I criticized the convoy zone concept for making the Allies' job too easy, by concentrating all the ENR and ASW action in a few convoy zones in the North Atlantic, and proba...

Sea Zone IPC income

Dear K-hund, The central question is how we treat sea zones . The way we answer that question bears decisively on all sea-related questions, not just on submarine ENRs, but on all the topics I've been raising--war economy, the neutral trade, the surface blockade, long distance naval noncombat moveme...

Testing

Twice now my replies to K-hund have failed to post to the forum, which may make I.L. happy. This post is only a test . . .

Sea Zone IPC income

PS Krieghund, What would the convoy zone rule, which you favor, do to simulate the difficulty of moving supply across the Pacific and Indian Oceans? Do you propose convoy zones in about the same sz as those in which the "convoy centers" were located in Axis & Allies Pacific? If so, would only the Al...
