Here are his thoughts……
> 1) I either should have reinforced my amphibious landing or withdrawn it. I think it was a good idea, but the execution was a little flawed. The Pact player has to take some risks to get across the Bosphorus. Like the Rhine, it is almost impossible to breach using regular units.
> 2) I wonder if it would be a good idea for the Yugoslavs to withdraw to Sarajevo and form a national redoubt. they would probably last longer and tie down more Pact troops if they did. I’m not familiar with Yugoslav defense planning in the 80s but I bet they actually thought about doing something similar (ie that plan might not be all that gamey…).
> 3) My poor rolling on aircraft maintenance on turn 2 really hurt. I was thinking about attacking Istanbul, but without air support, I had very little chance of taking it (basically I had to hope for an exchange).
> 4) I wonder if it would be a good idea for NATO to use its air power in the first subimpulses of the Pact turn. Pact units can’t attack during the second subimpulse if they’re in a ZOC and lowering the odds so attacks don’t succeed (meaning that the defenders don’t retreat) prevents units from being to move/attack in the second sub impulse.
