This could make an amazing HOI4 mod
Indeed, although I think George should rewrite this timeline with more details and better expanded sections on the nations with tidbits of more stuff on militaries, societies and economies.This could make an amazing HOI4 mod
To be honest you are correct on the rushed part because I wanted to keep it short and simple and give a summarization on the events. You're correct I will improve on many posts and give it more detail.Indeed, although I think George should rewrite this timeline with more details and better expanded sections on the nations with tidbits of more stuff on militaries, societies and economies.
Also to me, the Great War and the WW2 section feels kinda rushed so perhaps a rewrite could improve these arcs abut better.
I was waiting to introduce them when the United States declares war on the Axis. Other then that, their will be a major shake up with Mexico's relationship with the White Army and this could benefit either Hohenzollern Germany or Romania.We still havent seen the South American theatre between Argentina/Republic of Brazil and Bolivia alliance vs Mexico yet. This should definitely need to be covered as the 2nd World War TTL reached its 1942 stage.
OTL Bolivia did get a lot of german advisers but maybe a way to recover their sea acess?I understand Argentina and Brazil but why Bolivia? Why do they want to join the Axis and what on Earth would they gain from going to war with Mexico, unless Paraguay was Allied with Mexico and Bolivia wants to get back at Paraguay?
the Argentine also had two WW1 era super dreadnought battleships Moreno and Rivadavia, what happened to them?Mexican and Argentine relations were coming to a breaking point with Mexico trying to break them by doing what Austria-Hungary did to Serbia and issued a ultimatum to Argentina to:
It was the last two terms that struck a nerve with Argentina and that was the final straw; on March 13, Juan Peron made an announcement on radio that Mexico and Canada are Argentina's enemies and they want to rip Argentina apart and declared war on the Allies.
- Break all relations with the Axis.
- Give up all Axis weapons.
- End all hostile actions towards Mexico.
- Juan Peron must step down from power .
- Argentina must accept the Commonwealth's ownership of the Falklands islands.
This finally gave Mexico the excuse they needed to attack the Argentine Naval dock in Buenos Aires and cripple the Navy long before they can even set sail. On March 15, three Mexican aircraft carriers departed from Mexican Guiana and silently arrived on the 16 at the Rio de la Plata and on the break of dawn on the 18, Mexican modified Stukas took off on 6:30 a.m. and began dive bombing on the Argentine Navy, specifically targeting the aircraft carriers and the Battleships, Argentine planes were desperately trying to scrambled but were cut down by Wildcat fighters, this time unlike the Japanese they wanted to make sure that the Argentine Airforce was destroyed, by 8:30 the planes left and the Argentines thought the attack was over and began trying to put down the flames and save what could be saved, ARA Independencia was now a burning hunk and ARA Veinticinco de Mayo was barely afloat, while for Battleships Libertad was taking in water while Independencia was largely undamaged.
What the Argentines thought that the worse was over was actually going to get a lot worse: because twenty minutes later came the second attack, apparently when the Mexican bombers left it was because they needed to rearm and now they're back. Again the Argentine Airforce was desperately trying to take off and again they were cut down by Wildcats, while the bombers focused all their bombs on threw targets: Independencia, Libertad and the General Belgrano and after the second attack Independencia was no more and Libertad has now been sunk, while the Belgrano was on fire.

Both before the attack
After the second attack the planes returned back to the carriers and they returned back to Guiana certain that it was mission accomplished. The Battle of Buenos Aires leveled almost all of the Argentine modern ships with only Belgrano being salvaged partly, and this basically eliminated an Argentine attack on the colonies, so much so that Peron had to abandon his join the IJN and fight the Pacific fleet and instead focus on just the Falklands.
Perhaps for Argentine interwar BBs, I think they should be the Italian Roma class, mostly because Kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont dont have the resources to built them so since the two had pretty close relations, they transfer the design to the Argentinians instead. The Italian Roma ITTL would become the Argentinian Libertad instead.Any other questions, concerns, or comments?

There are pictures of the Roma sinking after being hit by Fritz X guided bomb, I think you can add it as an image for one of the Argentine Interwar BB sinking at the harbor after being hit by Mexican bombers.

I actually wanted to see a break up Mexico and Germany and their political fallout after the war with Mexico drifted closer to the Commonwealth and USA sphere. However, i think at this moment they should honor their deal with the Romanians.What do you think of the Marriage battle in the Chamber and who do you think would be the better candidate?
