Too late for that now, Germany is considerably outnumbered and the Allies are deep inside Germany. They tried a sickle cut but it didn't come off. Too many soldiers and tanks were lost in Belgium.A Belgium on the Allied side since October 39! It's really a boost for France. Basically the Dyle maneuver was a desperate attempt from the French high command to restore the defensive belt they lost when the Belgian got neutral.
I expect that there will be some sort of integrated command on the Allied side, but even if there isn't one, it will be infinitely better than OTL. There was basically no contact between the French and the Belgian outside some secret ones. For instance, France wasn't made aware that the Belgian changed their plans in the Ardennes and didn't intended to cover the sector (ouside some light troops).
But even now, I think the German should try the Sickle Cut. It's the simplest way for them to avoid a WW1 style campaign and associated the attrition they can't support on the long run.
A few side remarks :
FCM-36 was discontinued in 38-39 after 100 or so were delivered.
Renault NC was discontinued in the early 30's!
The last batch of Renault D2 was at the end of delivery, so it's really likely that the production will stop no matter what in June or July.
Renault had switched from R35 to R40 on the production lines in the spring (Mars or April). The R40 tank have an improved gun (37 mm SA 38), giving it a real anti-tank capacity. It also have improved suspension, giving it far more reliability.
I agree with you for the B1 and the S-35.
Junked, light tanks aren't considered that important in TTL and if necessary they will by M2 lights and now Stuarts. They are going for sheer numbers of their best tanks.You have forgotten the H-35/39! It's the light tank used in the armored divisions (DCR and DLM) because they were faster than the R35/40. As such, they had priority for the 37 mm SA 38. The goal was to produce 300 H39 a month from October 1940 onward. By the way, the H39 was selected for an industrial pool with the British and the Portuguese. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotchkiss_H35#Operational_history
Those planes were shot down by now. They might well have gone with the B-24s but in TTL they switched to B-17s which are better and the US is cranking out in larger numbers than OTLOn France ordering aircraft from the US, they have really important orders already coming in : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Purchasing_Commission
OTL, France had already bought 120 B-24 as LB-30. They will possibly expand the command, but no B-17.
France has already received 40 and they have a further 50 in order, so it's possible for the Navy.
They are going for large numbers of their very best. They are going with quantity over variety. If they really need any some more specialist planes they buy from the US.But don't forget the french made LN-401 and LN-411 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loire-Nieuport_LN.401). They have only one crew, which is a bonus given the scarce manpower of the Armée de l'Air. Their biggest problem is that they use the same engine than the D-520.
OTL, both types were trounced by the Luftwaffe (dive-bomber are very vulnerable if the airspace is heavily contested).
300 Vultee Vengeance were also on order.
Edit : After reading your entire timeline, I have a few more remarks :
The Heer bled out pretty badly in Belgium in TTL and more importantly, their logistical situation is MUCH worse. They had to expend far more shells, burn far more gas and had far more trucks blown up than OTL. Blitzkrieg tactics don't work as well when you are short of gas, short of shells and short of trucks. They were building more but it took too much time.I think you get the German to deeply in France.
If the Heer is in Cherbourg and Caen, it means that the Seine has been breech, so Paris is untenable rapidly. Plus, the way you describe the Eastern France Front going from Dijon to the Swiss border means the Maginot Line is completely lost and, with it, the whole north-east of France. It's something that France and its army can't recover from (as a significant fighting force).
Which they did, but were forced wider and wider due to circumstances. They simply could not fight on their terms so did the best they could in the circumstances. The French were forced to pull numbers from the Maginot Line to fight in Belgium so it was a bit weaker there than OTL.Don't get me wrong it's possible to breach the Maginot Line, but OTL the German did it after the French Withdraw all the interval troops and artillery. And I think ITTL the German will use those forces to breach the Front in Belgium.
Possibly, but I would have to rewrite the entire TL to do that since I wrote that a long time ago. Right now they are in Germany.All in all, I think that their will be a line on the Somme in the West, like OTL. They will breach it and take Le Havre, but the Allied counter-attack will isolate the spearhead.
In the East, I can see the German going deep in Champagne, taking Reims, Chalon and even Troyes
You are right I made a mistake.I think you said 1940 instead of 1941 in all your posts since that one.
And they are, the problem is that they have to now divide their attacks between two railroads. Japan wasn't exactly overflowing with equipment and suppliesI don't know if the Burmese Road will be that predominant, there is, after all, still a railroad open from Haiphong into China.
If anything, the Japanese will probably attack this one first.
