Really doesn't matter which side he bombed, cause if he bombed the Russians the Allies would eventually overtake Berlin and same if he bombed the Allies, so it's really it's one of those Damned if you do, Damned if you don't situations :)

It's just a lose-lose. If he bombs the Russians, some might survive and when Hitler believes them dead, he will lessen the amount of soldiers on the eastern half of germany, letting the remaining Russians get at the germans from the back. Vice-versa.

Yeah computernerd I love Alan Parsons project too!
Damned If I do Damned if I Don't But I Love You!
Seriously though assuming were talking a 40s bomb I don't don't get where hes getting a super fortress from. Unless hes got an untouched Topol mobile ICBM behind the Reichstag... :rolleyes:
What Her Hitler needed was a ticket to Vatican City.

probably bomb the Russians first, with a note "With love..Adolf!", since the Russians where nearer to Berlin..

Why would you bomb either? If i were a tactitioner, i would use it as a bargaining chip. Threaten to bomb their capitols while you try to reproduce the bomb, and convince them to surrender. So i voted other.

Too bad for Hitler that he didn't think that way hunh? :p

Too bad for him, but not bad for us.

Exactly my point :)

1. The Russians are closer.
2. The Russians are more pissed off.
Need I say more?

I am so confused. This is like the standardized test question "A train leaves ohio at 5:00 traveling at 75 mph. Another train leaves at 1:17 from Hong kong traveling at 300 mph. at What time will they crash into eachother?"
I choose- Other.

Hehe, good one :D.

There's a really obvious answer to that question.

My other, Wait till they're at you door step and blast berlin into the ground and take everyone out with ya. He committed suicide anyway, might as well try and take out whoever you can :D

well my opinion would be to nuke the soviets first as they're army was far larger than the americans, brits, canadians and french combined......and far more routhless. with any luck the use of that single bomb would cause the allies to surrender in fear. or at most cause them to stall there advance giving the germans much needed time to re-group. Plus bombing the red army would help Hitler cover the fact that invading Russia was probably his biggest mistake of the war.

Sorry if I offendid eany russians. russia is ok when they are doing good.

It wasnt russia, it was the soviet union. They opressed the russians and the kazaks and the orientals who lived within.
|#18 - Posted by: Revan91 (Member) on 03-12-2009 at 12:13|
The better tactical move would've been to bomb the soviets in a place where they it would slow their progress down considerably. In wide open areas which will force them to either pass through mountains, or turn back.
Why all these tactical polls anyway?
