@colin cool sounds good our games are always fun and i am looking forward to getting another shot with axis. this weekend was kinda bad for me too went to a russian festival yesterday and drank too much and today i get to clean my house bc the landlord is showing up tomorrow. 😛
Might run a Soviet solo, using vanilla 3.0 since I think its been a while. This seemed like a kinda fun opener to try..
The Balkans play only works I supposed if AI Germany fails to reinforce it. The other moves showing pretty strong odds for though stand alone attacks. Esp with the kill early on Iran and such. Though that draws a big exchange, might be worth it just to stall Axis as hard as possible.
Made the non coms during combat movement just to see where the forces might consolidate.
I played a game of Iron War with a lot of AI players and observed some pretty bad behavior.
Britain kept building transports & units out of Western Canada, but these just sat in the bay without doing anything, just accumulating over 16 rounds:
Russia was getting beat up a lot, but they kept building air transport planes instead of something like infantry:
EDIT: Britain was also building a lot of Air Transport planes in the England and not using them for anything. It's probably not the right thing for them to be building, but at least once built, they could have used their 13 air transports to land units in Africa - or straight up to land units in France.
EDIT 2: Reading the game notes, it looks like the Air transports might be coming from "Allied Airfields" that produce them each turn. OK, in that case it's not an AI decision to build them, but that the AI is not using them effectively (e.g. as Britain) is a bug.

Germany was buying a good amount of AA guns and at some point brought 13 of them to the front and attacked with them:
In general, Russia was messing around all over the map, such as going to Africa, Middle East, etc. and badly losing its Western Front.
