I never build IC as any country... research techs that increases IC, and use avalible IC for production, upgrades, ect. building IC takes up too much IC (IC-days), so its better to use the avalible IC.

When i was going a US playthrough, I got my IC to 500 by 1938. UK should aim for 300-350 by 1938.

Crikey, I'd better get cracking, although that seems a but excessive?

No i think it sounds very reasonable.

ya IC is kinda reletive . if u us all ur IC for making IC . u will loss alot of reserch speed for all ur other units. Pluss ur gona need to have the resorces to sustain the IC , also ur gona need men to hold africa and south asia. making IC (factorys) for 3 yrs will but u in a very weak position , and u may loss ports that will be hard to regain and provide resorces and men to recrute. I do 5 factorys with GB than men ships. with usa IC i u can get up to 300 kinda low but alteast u have men. if ur looking for a long game more IC can be used, I tend to like the early game build up of men .unit exp and gen exp will be gained . and that at time is better than a nother unit.

Right, I'd better dive in and start building cannon fodder then, I guess.

How many divs realistically do I need to polish off east africa and north africa, you reckon?

or you could just not play as the allies

one good light tank and 2 motor works real well. wtih inf x3 for back up . suprizing but low cost for supplys will alow u to move faster. all so if u do air attack from malta on triplie u can lower there supplys and the retreting army will have to keep retreting. make sure u put good gen on ur tank unit. and up grad ur skills for ground . italy sucks and will not have alot of anythng. mostly MM so tank blow away. make sure u ships have suprem control . hitting italy hard will make japan easyer whin the time comes. on on my last post ment to say 500 IC for usa . 300 for GB. sorry

Yeah I agree with the previous comments, GB should have around 300/350 IC at the low end if you focus on other things, but if you play your cards right you could get it to 400-500 IC mid war, it just depends how you play the game. In all honesty playing GB is more of a strength in numbers type of thing, GB can't be Germany infantry/tank wise, so the US and the other allies are needed, meaning you in reality don't need supreme amounts of IC.

I dont build IC except if I play USA. The UK already start with enough IC for what they are supose to do, to take Africa from the Italians 2 corps should do the job
Kaiser Stark Jul 10, 2013 @ 7:10pm 
now if you're playing the Black ICE mod you might notice something, as Japan i have around 450IC....and with spies I noticed that America has 900, and England has around 600-700. So its best to know what your enemies have and try to base it off of that and what your goals, otherwise you'll end up extremely outmatched IC wise (like me :P)

Cheers for that, I'll build away and slice through
