The Czechs were annexed in '45 - Slovakia liberated to get belligerence down a bit.
I think I've played into the autumn of '46 with no other major developments... I was gearing up my military for an end all be all war with the SU tentatively slated for spring of '48. Suicide? Yes! But maybe WWIII will spice things up
I have spoken, and so it shall be done.
The first and most crucial stage of the upcoming war will be a suprise attack against an unsuspecting DDR as illistrated here:
*Please note that due to the ever growing need for manpower, the war room is primarily staffed by displaced orphans.
The idea is to annex DDR as quickly as possible to cut the SU's supply lines to Western Europe... Then there's also hoping that they don't have enough transports to adequately supply a gazillion divisions they have stationed along the Atlantic coast.
If those hopes happen to become reality, then I'll need some luck to get the SU to commit reinforcements to this bottleneck on the eastern front:
If all of this comes together in a perfect fashion, I may have a chance... and reason to devise the second stage
So what kind of military does the Holy Romanian Empire have at it's disposal to even dare undertake such a glorious endeavor?
The army is modern at '47, no upgrades required. Air Force is as modern as it can get with the exception of some Escort Fighter upgrades in progress. I've not done any rocketry research to open up jet engines.
Unfortunately, my puppets won't ally with me, well at least not the ISR who's sittin' pretty with 50+ inf divisions to spare. But it's not so bad if they don't join in I suppose, I still have military access which could be beneficial for raiding, withdrawing, or regrouping.
My intelligence agency, which happens to be ran by prostitutes (superb intel-to-cost ratio, really), suggests that my Comintern rivals have:
Poles, Germans, and Bears, oh my! Please keep in mind that these are guesses
, not estimates
Holy hell though, 900+ infantry divisions supported by 80+ armor divisions? I think Conan the Romanian said it best...
"It does not matter if we were good men or bad, just that few stood against many..."
Resistance is futile:
Seven bloody days was all the steam we had. About a dozen DDR divisions magically showed up in Potsdam to stop my push to the Baltic. Bastards. All those damn rivers slowed the western groups thrust just enough to prevent us from being able to seal off that edge. And there was no attempt to breach through my fortifications on the Eastern front...
So it appears that Romania will not rule the world. We'll chalk this campaign up as a stalemate... Was loads of fun until the past few years, and I chose this ending just to see if I could pull it off. All-in-all time well spent.
