    • Defense of Middle and South Italy

      Middle and South Italy's transverse length is very small on map , defense there with ground units is impossible , you cant put even a railroad gun there , all of them stay in enemy battleships range

      what do you think about it ? I know game is different from real history like range of battleships but it is very weird there is no point to put a ground unit to hide from ships in there
    • use naval units, subs for each entry, or when you control jugoslavian border jsut a flet at the entry of the adriatic sea, choking points are ideal, also in between italy, sicilia and corsica choke points are present. and a domination at sea is like air dominance, its stiffling any advance

      What is Japan doing in the Med? Granted it did send a squadron during WWI.
