Re: how can't the Axis powers win, I don't have any idea

I agree it is more difficult to see the points of attack than to just fall back. Out of the box you had to be very experienced to force a win with the Axis and take advantage of some situational advantages to win. Try putting a major complex in Malaya with Japan! With the current Alpha+1 it is a lit...

Re: Alpha+.1

Trying to come up with a list of ships hit by strategic type bombers. B-17 types. IF the HE111 counts as a strategic bomber (5,500lb capacity) and it might since Germany does start the game with a strategic bomber this list should do as partially inclusive. The list below is of ships hit by a limite...

Re: Alpha+.1

I don't understand you. The SBR would be an unit with ZERO attack value not ZERO defense value. The strat. bomber it's designed to attack industrial complexes, airport, navaport, railways (not in game), energy facilities, roads, bridges, radars, enemy gun positions. BUT NOT UNITS! Imagine a B-17 at...

Re: Alpha+.1

Usually I buy more strategic bombers for offensive countries like the US who must go reach out and touch folks. The rest of the world defense matters too much. With England for example fighters are the choice because if it comes down to it they can scramble and defend land territories. I HATE having...

Re: Alpha+.1

Agreed with the earlier assessment of lighter bombers being the 'bombers' in our games. I say look up the list of allied ships damaged or sunk by German guided bombs from bombers in the med. It includes what, three battleships...Roma...another Italian.....what was its name? The Warspite itself was n...

Re: Alpha+.1

Battleships should be considered the kings of the sea I politely disagree. As much as it hurts to type this while wearing my Warspite T-shirt Battleships were not the kings of the sea in World War II. Carriers were. Far as being built....US numbers...Essex class carriers - something close to 24 dur...

Re: Alpha+.1

Infrastructure, I say it is 100% accurate to say there is limited need for Cruisers and Battleships so that is fine. Heck, and what bomber did the British use to drop that tallboy 12,000lb bomb on the Lutzow and that pretty piece of Churchill distraction Tirpitz.... Personally I build the occasional...

Re: Alpha+.1

For historical reasons Naval units should only kill at 1 against any air unit since even battleships (Repulse & Prince of Wales) alone were all but worthless against air power. Even the mighty Bismarck was had by obsolete Swordfish when you get to it. At best flack just lessened the effectiveness of...
