    Lmfao, the t-34 was the best medium tank on the eastern front.The nazi's didn't have any real medium tank counter to it until the panther which they made super complicated and then crewed with dumb teanagers. The gearbox on the panther constantly breaking down limited their effectiveness to static turrets, the inability of the nazis to supply ammo limited their ability to actually fight. I'd also recommend reading up on the soviet combined arms armies of the mid-late war as opposed to regugitating stale memes and propaganda. I gotta also say I like how you say the soviets were the ones freezing on the eastern front when they were the army that actually provided their troops winter gear lmfao.

    The USSR was not the most powerful army in the world though, as the other dude was claiming Yes I know hitler was stupid and he blundered a lot, I was talking about much of the early fight with the Nazis/USSR.

    As much as I'm loathe to defend the USSR, this is untrue and the result of years of post war nazi propaganda playing on the western few versus eastern horde trope that's been present in popular culture forever (hello Tolkien). By 1942 it was the nazis throwing men into hopeless scenarios to freeze to death. USSR technology was on par with their neighbours during the war and the USSR wouldn't start to fall behind technologically until much later. The T34 was not as "good" of a tank if you do nothing but read the numbers off of the stat sheet, but it was far easier to produce, repair and maintain due to the streamlined production while serving all of it's combat roles. German tanks were far less reliable due to their complex design, limited production run, and even sabotage by the slave labour used in manufacturing.

    Near the end of CN, can think of many who were leaders of hegemonic alliances with killing the game before they quit as a goal. So wouldn’t surprise me if a quote from someone.

    I mean. If I was a time traveler, I think what AA I was in in some browser game would be the least of my concerns.

    Obviously not a good one if he went to the future and still joined TKR.

    uh.... no? The USSR would only be the strongest army if we're measuring how many soldiers they had before the war, and not their technology/actual usefulness in combat. The USSR's entire strategy was quite literally built around throwing bodies at people until they ran out of ammunition/froze to death. Also... how do you not take "smart boi" as sacrasm? The USSR wasn't a superpower until 1950 by your definition then, my point still standing that they were easily the shortest-lived superpower.

    I'd have to check but I think you've already said that one

    Here's a freebie: "I relish in ruining browser based nation games. I cannot wait to have hegemonic control so that I can slowly squeeze the life out of this game and all those who oppose me."

    Let's not discount the Nazis terrible resource management, intelligence service, production regime and partisan problem. Attacking the USSR was necessary to get to the Caucasus region and secure the oil production there. A soon as the advanced stopped, the war was over. It was just a matter of time after that.

    I do think his deep dislike of Stalin did play into, he considered Stalin a savage pretty much & hated the association.

    I'm fairly sure Hitler did not just struck out of blind hatred for Stalin (although he did absolutely despise the commies). Expanding east was a component of his manifest (the concept of "lebensraum" enveloping the subjugation of the slavs, resettlement (colonization)of his aryan race toward the east and the establishment of a large "granary" area capable of feeding an industrialized europe. Not to mention ofcourse oil etc.-

    The only reason the Soviets won is because they were bailed out by the allies, which in PW terms would be if BK was winning because they were bailed out by NPO and their meatshields.

    Again go read your history. The soviets won the allies WW2.

    Pretty much all they accomplished was winning WW2, the Nazi’s decided they’d rather lose hitting him than help him become a super power. Reason Stalin ended up on the side they were on at end was Hitler hated him more than his enemies in Europe.

    They got it because they had the single strongest army on the planet, their combined arms doctrine was leagues ahead of the allies due to fighting longer and harder against the Nazi's. The allies had no desire or ability to force their will upon Stalin. I also don't think breaking agreements is "smart" and the fact that you think it is says a ton about how awful your politics are imho. A superpower and a great power are two different things. Emerging powers are, by definition, not superpowers. Portugal colonized Brazil and fought for territory in Africa, they were never considered a superpower. Spain was already considered a fallen power by the time the USA fought them, just another mark in the long troubled history of the failed kingdom of spain. Rome's superpower status was not 96-5whatever you wrote lmfao, their status as a superpower is essentially from is from 142BC, when they destroyed the last remnants of Carthage and finally brought Greece under their control, and somewhere in the 200's AD. The Crisis of the Third Century nearly killed them and that combined with back to back plagues marked the end of unchallenged roman hegemony of the western world. Yes Diocletian and Constantine would come later but the stabilizing reforms would be temporary and the western half of the empire would ultimately be lost while the eastern half suffered calamity after calamity, only having several brief resurgences in power no longer than a century here and there. I do think without the Black Death there was a decent chance for Justinian and subsequent emperors to reconquer the Mediterranean but they never did and the Roman empire couldn't even hold onto their namesake city after the 8th Century.

    This Global War Ruined Literally Everything

    I just realized you're the OFA guy with 7 2500 infra cities who declared an attrition war on my 14 800 infra cities.

    Nothing is "being said now". I am a third party who is by and large uninterested in the affairs of a peripheral alliance, but bored enough to post my thoughts on the matter. I'm not sure what you're saying here. If they did not wish for your assistance in the war, why were you attempting to dissuade them from joining? Two, you understand that an ally needing to call you to war when you have an M-level defense clause speaks volumes of your relationship dynamic, correct? Oh well. You guys have fun.

    Lol. So that's what is being said now. I see. Well to begin with, I'm not sure who they requested that with as neither myself nor the head of the FA department received any Call to Arms whatsoever from HA and before you jump to conclusions we were talking with them about a more plausible option which would have seen them remain outside the war. They refused and broke the treaty afterwards. If us not jumping head first into a war when our intervention is not even asked for is called war dodging, then by all means, call it such. However we do wish House Arryn all the best. That is now up to you.

    You realize the war is still ongoing, right? Cuz your use of the past tense suggests you're confused on the matter. If so, that would explain a lot actually...
  27. Dio Brando

    This is a brave new world we're living in

    To be honest, it's a bit disappointing to see one's reply to someone drawing a comparison between them and the Soviet Union be: "they won, though". Meh.
