    It's worse than we thought...

    V1-3 were all rockets. Clearly V8's a top secret chrome plated super rocket. I never did trust those Danes...

    AS a Dane i can say that we are entierrly trustworthy. Our V8 super rockets do not excist and they are not only just awiating and refuling nor waiting for the Danish flags to be painted on.... nope not at all.

    Actually ...

    V3 wasn't a rocket, it was a f***-off big gun capable of shelling southern England from somewhere in occupied France. A bit like the "supergun" British engineers were accused of trying to sell to Iraq some years ago.

    "Liebensraum"?

    Would the Nazis have been more or less reviled if they had annexed large portions of Eastern Europe for "loving space" rather than the "living space" (Lebensraum) they actually _were_ after?

    I'm not sure legions of Volksbeast-with-two-backs would have been any more welcome myself...

    Heh. My German just gets worse. Fixed.

    I wouldn't usually let this through but I just like the idea of 'loving space' too much.

    Hey! Russia is invading Finland!

    ¿Why else would their borderline be broken?

    So, how much until Denmark and Russia partition Poland?

    Russia hasn't invaded Finland, as it shows the Moscow Armistice border, bar the port of Porkkala that Finalnd got back in 1956.

    No problem but then don't forget to revert 1920 Treaty of Trianon completely...

    ...so we can get back the 75% cut off Magna Hungarica... :)

    What makes you think Britain is spared?

    Without colours it's impossible to tell from this map whether the UK remains a sovereign state. Perhaps it too is ceded to Great Denmark.

    By the way, the name is written as Habsburg.

    V8's are mute

    As Time Trumpet tells us, Tesco is about to invade Denmark. The V8's will be of no use against the Extra Value Tripods o' Doom.
