Something get cutoff and soft capped through it? Looking forward to flags going away but doubt it will do anything about side imbalance though.

yeah bunch of units got trapped at maldelgem and knokke - due in the most part to no AHC being on for 7 of 10 hours.  germs took advantage of the resulting flag imbalance and did a pretty well coordinated para-attack against our only flag in England (and AIr Division HQ).  Was a spectacularly well executed plan whoever on german side that planned/coordinated/participated make OKW publicly acknowledge you for it.  When ramsgate fell, the closest allied ground flag was still 2 hours out of England.... we moved what we could in (paras, navy, air) to try to at least put up a resistance until the routed flags returned, but was to little.

The plan was put forth by Leanderj and WHIPS along with some other squads pulled off the assault.  It was a much more daring attack than it may sound like.  We were literally only going to do one para drop on Ramsgate and just have some fun.  But the reaction from the Allied forces wasn't there and so we capped the whole thing.

Ok here is how it went down.. i got on as hc @ 10.00 o clock my local time... we had an ao on avelgem, but i saw an opportunity to move trough torhout and go for oostende.

However the avelgem attack was going pretty ok.. and the MOIC was like dont pull we cap this quick... (however.. it lasted for another 2 hrs or so). In this time i made sure we got all the fbs to torhout so allieds couldnt move flags in. Once avelgem was capped. I immediatly dropped the ao on it and pushed on .axis for quick fms and cap of torhout.. We did it in record time. While we were capping in torhout i asked for a precamp fb of torhout oostende. We successfully had one. We took torhout, i straight away put ao on Oostende.

Fb was axis.. our flag came to torhout and we went for oostende (we didnt had the greatest supply.. no lmgs, no smgs). By this time ahc should have reacted allready, and i know they were on (not gonna call names) but they didnt shift flags to oostende or try to move back.. instead they aod torhout (or the town next to it.. cant remember). We held that place good. Then oostende fell. After that i think we went for aalter with only 1 link.. and managed to boot flags as well .. and cap the town. 

Then i had to go to a meeting in real life .. after i came back (14.30hrs) i saw we were attacking diksmuide... wich also fell.. veurne was next.. that was axis also.

Then i had to go home.. came home.. had dinner.. came back (18.00hrs).. and we just took zeebrugge... flags got routed. What i found odd was why allieds after oostende didnt move flags in the south to go to dunkerque... since they were shifting flags.. but not to there.. 

I noticed only 1 hq air flag in Ramsgate.. no paras.. no other flags... this was the moment!

So we had an opportunity to go to england.. but i thought ok this is gonna go nowhere.. but at least we can try.

So i spawned a JU.. got some dedicated people on board... took off.. asked for aircover (got 1 plane ..woohoo)..  went as high as i could get.. passed knokke.. (wich still was allied with allied flags in it) ... and then the cat and mouse began... yellow square following us.. yellow square in our sector... place ao.. wait for ao .. damn we are too early.. we will get shot down.. ao placed.. ok almost there.. still 7 minss.. for cps to be hot... damn.. ok engines off.. gliding in circles to go lower and lower... 3 mins.. ok im @ 4k alt now.. i dont want to get shot down now.. im going in and drop the paras.

With 2 mins to go dropped them all..(well nearly all.. 2 paras were too slow when i called jump..so they died with me in the plane as it went down by ai) a bit to the west but not in front of ai luckely.. and we rushed B (euh i mean spawn cp)... and then capped it. 

I then called out on .axis drop everything you are doing now and get your [censored] to england to cap it! :P 

I died in meantime.. so went from spawn.. set an fms to the af.. and capped the af bunker... wich also had an enemy fs in the vincinity .. flags gone.. and then ramsgate was ours by i believe 19.30 (thats GMT+1 .. i live in Netherlands)

Then waht happened I need to hear the sequel

Ok..ok... you lucky i was on for the rest of the journey... we shipped over 1 brigade.. the rest of the division was on timers.. and we were hungry so we went for sandwich, and also AO'd Margate.

Sandwich was quickly axis. Margate was tough fight, but we managed. Then with only Navy in Margate we launched AO on Whitstable. In meantime we shipped over the rest of the division. So we could place an inf flag into Margate to assist on Whitstable.  After Whitstable wich we got after a bit of a fight (it had 2navy flags in it), but once we capped the spawn it was pretty much quickly over, we went for Deal. That was done so we could be sure we had a link back to the mainland or to cutoff reinforcements, since Allieds sill were pressing on dunkerque to get inf flags back to their mainland.  

Deal proved be an interesting fight.. lots of dead bodies everywhere .. near the ab.. near the docks.. near the spawns.. was good fight. In meantime paras took canterbury. Wich was quickly under a counterattack by para's. We moved an inf flag to Wingham to support the defence. After Deal sealed the Deal for the allieds of net getting any inf flags back to the mainland.

We went for the final town.. Ashford.. FMSses were driven in by KM units from Whitstable... we had no inf flags to move.. all was on timers.. still...  We got it but.. Allieds were constantly flying in paras to slow us down. Hats off to those brave men! It gave us a handfull and a nerve wrecking last cp capture since we knew they were recapping a cp ...  the chat was full of the Go Go Go cap it!.. Keep fingers crossed.. lets hope they dont cap it be4 we cap this... ;)  But we won that little race ... and then the System came with the message that the campaign was over and it would go into intermission ... 

So know you know acton S!

I was there.  That's how it happened.  An unbelievably flexible but small Axis force did it!  It starts with Great Leadership...but in addition, we had people running everywhere....opels and FMS's and JU's appearing magically in what was an hours long affair....."guard this" , "cap THAT" "Move to cover and interdict" TS was lit up for hours....people not even taking a Bio break for fear of losing that thin strand of  advantage.....and, most importantly as Leanderj said, I was on the JU flight to Ramsgate while we were bickering about whether it was "worth" the distraction...and we did all agree that it will be one flight and one try....and the risk of that effort by a small dedicated band of merry men crumbled the map.  I love this Game!  I am so glad that I was online to participate.....an adrenalin pumping experience!  Salute to Command Leadership!

I was unfortunately on the receiving end of the attack on Margate. Didn't seem to matter how many infantry I killed as more and more kept streaming out of the shoreline and into the cps. Well played axis.

A really well written after action summary! I wasn't on, just woke up to a wtf moment when I casually checked the map at work. Since I came back I've been trying to go from one side to the next by campaign, but I will prob remain allied for 132. Salute to all Axis for a thrilling accomplishment!

 

S!
