I love it when a plan comes together!
If the UK is devoting 5 yellow PP per turn to blue factories, why does their YPP total not increase after those factories are produced?
If UK sends finished goods to Afrika before Barbarossa starts, the Axis have no subs in the Indian Ocean, correct? So no shipping losses are possible (i.e. there is no MDR for finished goods, only raw materials)?
Similarly, can Italy add PP to the Afrika depot free of risk before they enter the war?
Intriguing questions Chris.
As soon as the 6 Aircraft factories are completed, UK invests the same amount of PP in building 5 Shipyards and 1 armor factory:
Sending finished goods to Afrika, means that they are going from UK to the Red Sea around the Cape, thus they face both the threat in the Atlantic Ocean and in the Indian one.
Italy, instead, can freely send PP to Afrika when neutral.
ALL THE BEST
