Well, actually Russia would have in my view crumbled away, But i respect your view, and would love to talk about it.... But on the topic of Britain being subjugated i do actually see a major change in the war, No bombing of Germany or Nazi controlled Europe, No supplies reaching Russia, Middle East ...

The only way the u-Boats could have defeated England ws if hitler had had around 250 of them after France was defeated,

When the u-boats first showed up they were in small numbers so by the time the numbers bult up the British had developed there tactics.

the most armour a japanese tank had that i know of was from 12mm to 75mm, They actually had a 75mm gun aswell, But only 6 Type 4 Chi-To tanks were built and only a prototype of the Type 5 Chi-Ri. Thank god for us they started building these tanks late in the war.

OK..........I guess Germany didnt have one weapon that was important to Germany, Becouse all of them were. the U-boats kept Britain short of supplies thus she was able to do few operations against germany. The K-98 was th main weapon in the german army but the Lee-enfield ws also the main weapon in ...

Sid, While i do agree with your veiw i dont think a force could hold the hawain islands for very long, The most i could see them being able to do is completely do a scorched earth policy, Destroy every thing, re-float all possible ships and transport them back to Japan and make the islands un usable...

OK.....If i am planning to invade Russia i would automatically call off all plans against the allies. There aircraft being deployed against russia is stopping Pearl Harbour being bombed. supply by sea for Vladivostok would be hopeless, Yes a few ships could get through but what navy did the Russians...

17 SS Panzer Grenadier, How can you claim that if Russia was defeated that all links with the axis are removed, It didn't seem to happen in 1917, In my view they could be seen as there protector for removing the communists, The only peaple they would hate with a passion would be the japanese. And 17...

Ok, i under stand were you are coming from but many times i have been told railways are to easy to repair, Eg: when i bought up the topic about Auchwitz and the allied bombing of a factory just 14 miles away they said it would be no use as the germans would repair it in a night, I would assume the j...

Well with the factorys so far away there got to run out of ammo some time, So the japanese could go off to a normal advance speed since its not like they are going as fast as German panzers, they coul easily repair a rail line in no time. There advance isnt holded up then.

From what i can gather the only thing the Japanese could do would be to bomb the rail networks in there range so it would make supplies and reinforcements hard to get there, It would atleast allow for some time the Japanese supply superiority over the Russians, possibly even over run them, But the j...
