German national focus tree

Jump to: navigation, search

As one of the seven Major powers, Flag of German Reich German Reich has a unique National Focus tree. The National Focus tree includes both historical and counterfactual options for the player, and the AI is strongly weighted to follow the historical path when playing a "Historical Focus" game. Notable alliance opportunities are with the USSR, Poland, and the Scandinavian countries. Most of the Focuses for Germany are ultimatums for states/provinces, which may result in: acquiring territory, acquiring a war goal to obtain territory, or immediate war. The additional research tech is quite deep, requiring Industrial Effort II, Air Innovations II, and then Rocketry (among others). An Extra Research Slot becomes available should Rocketry be completed.

Should the Flag of German Reich German Reich pursue the Anschluss, the German National Focus tree provides levers for reordering Central and Northern Europe. The Flag of German Reich German Reich may make peace with or make territorial demands of Flag of Czechoslovakia Czechoslovakia, Flag of Lithuania Lithuania and Flag of Poland Poland, Flag of Yugoslavia Yugoslavia and Flag of Greece Greece, and Scandinavia. The possible levers reach from Norway and Denmark in the north to the Soviet Union in east, around through Flag of Turkey Turkey, Flag of Greece Greece, Flag of Italy Italy and Flag of Spain Spain in the south, around up through France to the low countries.

Whether controlled by the player or the AI, Germany will be dictating the course of many events in Hearts of Iron IV.
