Brazil AAR. (First game with GC)

Post by GIJoe597 »

I have just downloaded GC. I thought what better way to get started than to jump in with an AAR.

Brazil
Standard settings from start up, except, I unchecked enhanced spotting and ranges.

I usually do not concentrate on reporting economic numbers, all I pay attention to is having enough money to do what I need to do. I may from time to time post a screen shot of some economy numbers.

One of my “rules” is to not use massive amounts of units and I will try to use the best available unit in each situation. I generally do not build more than 2 wings of fighters, fighter bombers or Strategic bombers. For my purposes a wing is 7 squadrons, so at most I would have 14 squadrons of fighters for example.

I also create naval fleets that make sense. i.e. not have a “stack” of 7 carriers.
Normally a single fleet will consist of 7 ships something like this depending on what I have available of course

1 CV
2 CA
3 DD
1 AO

I will modify it for this AAR as Brazil currently has no fixed wing carrier capable combat aircraft.

Now to review units available to us and place appropriate units on order:

Land:
Due to the large number of rivers we require a unit that is amphibious.
The EE-11 Mk VII Urutu APC will be our Infantry choice for now
18 ea ordered
Image


Air:
With vast amounts of rough terrain Air Power is essential. We need a mobile force that also packs a punch without using tons of missiles.
The A-4KU/M/N Skyhawk II fills that role nicely. Ground attack range of 24K and a damage rating of 46.
14ea ordered
Image


Navy:
We cannot currently build any DD/CA. This forces us to start production on the F-40 Niteroi frigate.
8ea are ordered to compliment our current force of 6ea
Image

Missile:
We have no designs for any air to air or naval launched missiles at this time.

Research:
We have the ability to research 2 techs and I max spending in all categories.
We choose;
Dark Matter Theories (+2% research Eff)
Anti Ship Missiles (To better protect our shores from invasion)


Jan 2020

5th We order construction to begin on 12ea farms
7th Construction of 12ea Water Works begins.
9th Ukraine offers 4103 water x 30days for 6.4m x 30days. Accept
Image


11th Taiwan offers 30x days of 947t Cons gds for 30 x 25.20m. Accept
Image


25th Argentina declared war on us.
Image


Ordered blocking forces to Uruguaina, Sao Borja, Foz Do Iguacu and Sao Miguel D’oeste.
27th Commodity shortages looming: Military Goods.

Feb 2020
7th An S-2E Tracker Patrol squadron flying along the border of Argentina notices a lack of troops. The blocking forces in Uruguaiana and Sao Borja are ordered to attack across river into Paso De Los Libres and the large military base at Posadas. No resistance in Uruguaina and light resistance in Posadas. Both objectives taken.
Image
Image


8th 1st Inf (AAVP7A1 Alligator) is orderd to take the town of Obera’ when recon reports no hostiles.
Image


1 Arg Infantry BN of VCTP ICV attempts to retake the town and military base at Pasados. They take heavy damage and retreat.
Image


Now an Arg C-130 hovers over the area. It is time to introduce them to 2 sqds of Embraers. It retreats also.
Image


9th A lone supply sqdn attempts to make it past Paso De Los Libres.
They pay for that mistake.
Image
Image


2 army groups are ordered to assault Eldorado and Puerto Iguazu.
Image
Image


10th Both towns are taken by our forces.
Image


This allows us to consolidate our forces from just outside of Paso De Los Libres north to the border of Paraguay.
Image


Once the line is secure, plans will be put into motion to capture Corrientes.
Image


12th Our navy is moving full speed to Rio Grande. There they will consolidate and set out in fast attack fleets along the coast of Argentina.
Image

The barracks at Posadas has been repaired! 1st inf is ordered to repair and refit as they took damage from the Arg Bn that attacked Posadas.
Image

24th We order two army groups to advance towards Corrientes. Our Awacs paints an Arg Eng Bn attemping to cut their line of supply.
Image


The F-5E Sq is ordered to intercept and destroy.
Image

They attack and at the same time recon units/skirmishers close off his line of supply. The F-5Es make short work of them.
Image


25th Once again our Patrol aircraft paint Args moving to engage us at Paso De Los Libres, One AT Bn and one Inf Bn.
The army group just outside town is notified and a 2nd group is ordered into a flanking position.
Image


The Args turned north just prior to engaging the forces protecting Los Libres. This placed them in contact with the flanking group. While they are engaged, 1st group is ordered to hit them from the south and east.
Image


The Arg AT Bn escapes, however we manage to pin the Inf Bn down and annihilate them
Image
Image


All Army groups are ordered to move the line forward to the intersection of 14 and 127, west of Bella Union, Uruguay and stretching north to Corrientes.
Image


At the same time Army groups 5 and 6 are ordered to take Corrientes which is defended by 2 garrisons.
Image
Image


26th Group 6 rolls into Corrientes.
After consultation with Army Command it is decided to press on, to speed up our push into Argentina. Immediate objective is to secure the Arg land east of the river,
and set up blocking forces on the three river crossings at Resistencia, Santa Fe. We will try for Za'rate if possible but it is not a primary objective at this time.
Image


We encounter an Arg Inf Bn and make short work of it.
Image


Our Patrol Sqdn is orderd forward for greater coverage of the area in question.
27th In addition to the Inf Bn we discover a Tank Bn heading SW.
Image

Our F-5E’s are called up. They take out the tanks. And as they are returning home the Patrol planes paint another Arg Inf Bn.
Image


28th Our farms are now being completed.
29th Egypt Offers 30 x Petro of 89,782bbl’s for 30 x 13.66m. Accept
Norway offers 30 x Petro of 77,779bbl’s for 30 x 11.99m Accept
Disaster, 1 Sqdn of Arg Mirage-F1’s is able to destroy our patrol craft. Our AMX A-1’s immediately jump on him.
We got caught with our pants down. Will not happen again.
Image

Mar 2020
7th Our immediate objectives of securing all land east of the river has been met. All forces are repairing and re-supplying as well as waiting on supply lines to catch up 100%.
Image


After a brief period of replenishment, forces will once again be ordered to attack. During this respite, I will take the time to entertain some diplomatic offers and take stock of production/output.
A non aggression pact is signed with France.
We are woefully short on Petro. Construction started on 24ea new wells in the area between Barra Do Cordo and Codo’. As well as supply depots.
Image


8th Army group 1 decides to recon in force. They push to the bridge leading to Zarate. Halfway across they discover 2ea Arg transport ships and take them out.
Image


Then proceed across the bridge. Where stiff resistance is met. After an exchange of fire they withdraw back across the bridge.

21st It has been a very rough slog through garrisons, but we have made some headway towards Buenos Aires.

Image


24th The huge military base on the outskirts of Buenos Aires falls. Their Air Force flees.

Locally, Venezuela appears to be the most imminent threat looming to us.

9th The first of 72ea Coal mines has started coming online.

15th The 24ea Metal Ore mines are completing now.
18th Formal alliance with France.
Image

24th During a meeting of top commanders it was pointed out we lack in capable anti air units. Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to manufacture any of our own. We seek assistance from France on this issue and after lengthy discussions between our two nations, it was agreed we would purchase the designs for the SAMP/T ASTER 30 GARDE. So keen were they to have a buffer against communist intervention in S. America, they sold it to us for less than half its value.
Image
Image


We place the design in the hands of our capable Defense Minister and task him to manufacture 9 units as soon as possible.

Dec 2020

Wow, been some time since I looked at this. It was my first game with GC.

I am glad you enjoyed the AAR. If there are any questions you have about SR2020 the search function works very well on these forums. If you cannot find what you are looking for, post a thread several helpful people in here.


Will you be posting an AAR at some point? I do like reading them.
