Add airbase to Quebec
Remove one French tank from Normandy and replace it with an artillery unit.
Removing Soviet BB and replacing it with a Cruiser (and NOOOOO.... this had nothing to do with IL's similar proposal)
I'm all for beefing up Germany- it seems they have to spoon feed Italy all the time so they need it. (Gee, that almost seems historical)
I don't like the take away of the Gibr or Malta Airbase, but hey- I'll leave this to you.
Turn Order- I like this one you got here- Italy before UK??? I don't know...I'll leave it to you...I got too much studying to do.
The rest of the changes seems really good. Much better.
Yeah, I don't know what you can do beyond 1d6+2 and limited AA fire- may be the best you can do. Convoys - same thing- not much I think you can do w/o wacking things out. Well, you'll come up with something. Can't wait for the Final as usual.
BTW- You're dead on about your analysis of Italy and the Med and the Europe side of things. Exactly my observations. Its a tough one, Italy can get out of control or be dwindeled to nothing. Italy is a real sensitive needle that has extreme variance when played- seems hard to tone it down either way to get more of a "balanced" Italy play.
ALSO- Lock IL and Mantlefan on their own thread for life.
