The USA vs The World View attachment 17732 A HOI-3 AAR The Set Up: I started a SP Custom Game as the United States, fully aware that the Allied AI wasn't so great in such a position. I initially changed my techs, getting rid of most of my Naval Techs and applying them pretty much only to DD, Aircraft Carriers, and Light Cruisers - the backbone of my Navy. Confrontation with the Japanese would require Naval Superiority and I hoped to achieved this from the start with Superior Technology. I also destroyed my entire Army and recreated it, essentially spending all the points on making two Carrier Fleets (4 Carriers + 4 Light Cruisers) that would be the true backbone of my Navy. I even think I made a 3rd, but can't remember at this time. My Land Army also only numbered a few thousand men, mostly Garrisons, spread through the Pacific on my Islands. Goals: My goals are simple. -Research Technology for a Superior Army and Airforce -Produce an Army and Airforce with Europe in mind -Eliminate the Japanese as soon as possible, then turn attention to Africa/Europe. These are general, overall goals. If I can defeat Japan then I am hoping I can defeat the rest of the Axis too. This can/should eventually lead to a direct conflict with the USSR, at which point I want to take the Cold War and make it HOT. All depends on when and how fast things happen.
