Lithuania takes back Bradenburg, but loses Ponzig due to a sexy convoy in the process. In the north, the Danes take Archangel; a retreat is due from Russia.

In two different games, I helped orchestrate a convoy into Italy from the East that was pretty damn sexy.

Also, it was a really short, basic convoy.
Intelligent? Yes.
Sexy? Sure; whynot?

I didn't see it coming and it accomplished sh*t.

I don't know about you guys but I would tap that convoy.

Check out some of the convoys in Layered.

Though we haven't seen one in the current game as good as that in Layered 1 - which went from one map to the other, across the board, and back to the first map.

Now that's sexy!
