  • Game Suggestion: Limited non-nuclear war between European Union Nations

    Title says it all. Combatants will be (if this is feasible and we have enough interest) Britian, Germany, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark and Norway. Year would be 2011. Will expand if there's enough interest.

    And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgement.

    Completely implausible.

      Why? This is the Alternate Timelines - Wargaming thread where people commonly shoot up German invasions of Britian, Alien invasions and suggest 3rd World Wars. Why is this so immplausible?

              No?

              The ones who are more likely to get pissed off at Russia not winning are ShAA and Konzev.

              Anyway, if we are going to do this I'll take the Dutch I suppose, since Germany is spoken for. I would take the Danes, as I am 1/4 Danish but I don't want to be a leading a military with little offensive capability.

                  Well that would only leave France and Britain playable would it not?

                    Perhaps Britain, France and Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, Scandanavia, Italy and allied Balkan States, and Spain & Portugal.

                    Scenario. Solar flare has destroyed all civilian power generating capability and somehow (AH afterall) rendered all nuclear weapons inoperative (in the short term). Civilisation crumbles and only each countries military remains a viable form of government (in the short term). Each faction is led by messiah like figure (eg Tony Blair ). Each is after resources to repair own infra-structure.

                    Just a thought .

                      No offense Nick but I'm not into the end of the world scenarios. I like Comrade Ogilvy's scenario. It's just a good old fashioned land grab and no-body likes nuclear radiation in their flower gardens.

                          @Twitter3 Yep. Germany and the Netherlands are taken. So Britain, France, Belgium, Denmark and Norway left.

                            Fair enough.

                            Just trying to bring some type of (weird) logic that could make this scenario feasible.

                            I'll play Belgium, since that is where my missus is from. I believe I have a minesweeper, and an aging leopard. Unfortunately the latter is not a tank.

                              We only need somone for Fance and we can get started. Norway and Denmark are going to be non-playable and will be controlled by myself. If we run this I'll run it on the system that I've been using for my alternate Balkans War 1912. Basicly I'll devise scenarios and you guys will give me your responses. Order days will be Saturday and Tuesday. Movement will be determined by averge speed and endurance of forces during the Gulf War and the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Informtion will be gained from Wikipedia as it's the only centralized extensive source of info on the armed forces of the world. I'll deliver weather info and any political events around the world. You guys are in charge of acquiring maps and other details. Any questions?
