I am slogging thru Africa and just sea lifted a hundred leg units to a sea pier. Africa is huge and I now control most of the entire Western shore.
I want to move my forces North towards the straight of Gibralter, but if I abandon the South-West, it will revert.
So, I need cheap throw-away leg units to garrison key cities. This involves moving Garrisons, Airborne or Marines to these cities. Garrisons are too heavy to helo-transport, so they must walk or get ground-transportation.
It just occured to me - outposts can build a Conscript in 8 days or a Garrison in 12.
The differences in our approach to taking Africa varies widely, however your use of leg units, in the context of this game, are interesting. My first question is what country are you for the region? Second, what is your concept of operations in terms of the vast terrain and the supply issues revolving around armor and mech units? Do you combine your efforts between leg, mech, armor units? Thanks and I am just wanting to compare notes
My current game in Africa I am playing as South Africa and I am trying to push north in an according manner in which I will hold either the left, center, or right and then push with the other two. The decision on which is pushed depends on the target and the number of enemy units that I am facing. I haven't attempted a landing onto Madagascar yet as they are a none threat at the moment due to the games limitations in sea/air invasions. Just as you have conducted seaborne invasions I am now contemplating doing such an operation along the horn of Africa and capturing the Eastern portion of the continent first and then moving West/North-west. These are quick thoughts and I hope to hear back from you.
