The Benelux nations all fell in short order following may 10th invasion.AAE40 begins shortly after Dunkirk. Germany, on its first turn will probably be launching the Battle of France. Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Norway have just been successfully invaded and are occupied.
Dunkirk happened in the middle of the battle of France ( this battle started May 10th 1940 and Dunkirk was like early June 1940 ( france falls late june).
I see your point was to allow for france to fall as part of a scripted turn for Germany, because by Dunkirk they had already spend their best efforts to counterattack the Germans at Sedan. The situation from June 5th was very much in the Germans favor.
I am very happy with the results and scope of this new game. I thought AA509 was the best, but now i know this will be the best game ever.
your Mech unit should be able to blitz because at 4 IPC and a 1-2-2 unit its a little weak. I think i will give them a boost with artillery +1 and also boost artillery +1 on movement at 1:1 basis.
So if a mech is moving with artillery id make them both 2-2-2-4 units. That would be my house rule.
I don't think i can sleep any more thinking about these games....
