I've tried what you're talkin' about. It doesn't work for me unless Allies kill G fleet by round 3 and J doesn't commit to stackin' Egypt.
Even when you are ready to hit Egypt, Axis just backs out & is poised to stack Persia.
1st: I cannot bring myself to hit G's fleet in Med with 2 ftr & bomber. Last time I did that, it was my bomber v. battleship with 1 hit on it, bomber missed & battleship shot it down.
G is going to have at least their battleship still floating approx. 15.8% of the time. J comes thru the canal & we know how G gets another tranny rollin' from there.

And if you really want to have fun freaking out any Japan move to the Africa, consider assembling your entire UK fleet in the bottom of the Indian T1. That means the carrier, destroyer, submarine, fighter, and two transports filled with units from Australia and India.
The fleet will not be attacked by Japan. If they do attack, UK wins nearly 80% of the time. Half the Japan fleet wiped means... you guessed it...a KJF!
bmaster wrote:You sure about that, bk? I respect the opening, particularly if Uk brings absolutely everything, as you say. However, J can still hit you with 4 fighters 1 carrier 1 bb and have a >70% shot at you with on average surviving with their capital ships if they choose normal loss order, or close to 80% if they opt for the inconvenience of saving a fighter to land in a carrier moved to east indies.
bmaster wrote:Yeah, if u hit uk with everything you probably skip pearl entirely. Which is nice, you've saved the usa fleet. But with two j trannies out there I don't see any long term concerns for j from a kjf attempt. The land is totally secure and the ocean is in no imminent danger so long as no single round vs uk goes all that badly.
