They are still bettre compared to the nazis and communist.
That's not that hard TBH.
Actually, even IOTL, in France a lot of Vichy supporters were motivated by petty revenge against the Front Populaire.
Indeed and this Royal France has even mroe followers and support...


Also yes, the Talib or Tullab Movement are Taliban like, or pre-Taliban like. Mixing Mohammedanism/ Islam with Afghanistan National and Pan-Pashtun as well as pan-Mohammedan ideas mixed into a blend (meaning they will be just as dangerous and radical as OTL original ones to a extent).

Chapter 699: The Royal Polish Army during the Eastern Crusade

The Royal Polish Army was led by Marshal Edward Rydz-Śmigły, also called Edward Śmigły-Rydz the Commander-in-chief of the 1,300,000 Polish soldiers, the 840 tanks and 1,000 airplanes of the Polish Kingdom who fought in the Eastern Crusade against the Soviet Union. They bypassed the eastern Pripet Marshes towards Minsk and Schytomyr were they encircled Red Army border forces of the Soviet Union. From there on they pushed eastwards accompanied by Imperial German, United Baltic Duchy, White Ruthenian, Royal Ukrainian, Imperial Austrian-Hungarian and Royal Romanian ones. Until the year of 1942 the Polish forces had increased to over 2,400,000 overall. Many of them came from the around 1,650,000 polish who were forced out of the former Polish Corridor, or the now independent lands of White Ruthenia and Ukrainia. They were encouraged by polish propaganda like patriotic newspapers, movies and radio speeches. This and their long hatred against Bolshevism, Communism, the Red Army and the Soviet Union lead to many volunteers joining the ranks, trained by German veteran officers of the Scandinavian Campaign and the Western Campaign against France. Despite not leaving the liberated White Ruthenian and Ukrainian territories, were the Polish Army then helped fighting partisans and other insurgent forces.

Until 1941 the Royal Polish Forces had lost around 85,400 soldiers that had been killed during the fighting and battles alongside 143,000 wounded polish soldiers and 240,000 who had been captured by the Soviet Union. Under command of Władysław Albert Anders of the Nowogródzka Cavalry Brigade, around 8,000 poles fled a Soviet Gulak near Buzsulks and managed to reach Axis Central Power forces in the Caucasian Region. From there they were brought back to the Polish Kingdom were many of them rejoined the Royal Polish Army to continue fighting the Soviet Union. As a result of their Great Escape Stalin ordered all other Polish and other Axis Central Powers prisoners to be deported deeper into Central Siberia and all their Officers shot. When first rumors about this spread from captured Soviet forces and defecting Red Army soldiers, about what hat happened spread, including the mass shootings of Polish Forces who had capitulated to the Red Army. In nearly no time, the Axis Central Powers spread said rumors as truth and used it for their anti-Soviet and anti-Red Army propaganda all over Europe, legitimizing their own Eastern Crusade this way. This and the first remnants of former Sovied Gulag Slave Camps spread like wildfire across Axis Central Power Europe and the National Monarchists/ Fascist Royalist used this chance to legitimize their Eastern War, the new Russian Empire and it's Tzardom.

Unknown to many, the Royal Polish Army looted and scorched parts of the Soviet Union Lands as revenge for the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-1920 to a extent that allied Axis Central Powers needed to stop them. After all the Axis Central Powers came as liberators of these lands and hoped to get the population on there side. Therefore the Polish Kingdom was forced to return most of the stolen goods, but the poles were promised by contract with the German Empire and the Russian Empire that they would be compensated by the captured Soviet Union gold and other riches in the amount of the damage done to Poland back during the Polish-Soviet War, multiplied by the growth the Polish Nation State had been undergone since then. This decision proved to satisfy not only the majority of the Polish Government and Military, but it's citizens too. It was seen as a fair decision by the Germans, but for the Imperial German High Command it also put the Polish in dependence of the Germans to ensure this promise and the Russians in need of further German Reconstruction to compensate for this financial losses and help quickly rebuild the war torn Russian Empire alongside the rest of Eastern Europe. It gave further rise and centralized power to the later EU (Economic Union) under the German Empire.
 
Chapter 700: Lessons learned after Midway: Carrier Warfare, Tactics and Strategies
Chapter 700: Lessons learned after Midway: Carrier Warfare, Tactics and Strategies

The previous battles and skirmishes between the Imperial Japanese Navy and the United States Navy, the Japanese Ministry of the Navy and the Imperial Japanese Admirals had realized a few patterns in these clashes. The Japanese realized similar to the Americans that the carriers, not battleships were the future of naval combat, not only in the Pacific but overall. The Japanese superiority in night combat made them favor battles during the night, when American air support would be severely hindered. Additionally the Japanese main guns did not reach as far as the American ones, with only 35,5 km from their 356 mm main guns, against the 37 km of the US 406 mm main guns. The situation looked better on the secondary guns, where the 203 mm guns of the Japanese reached 29 km, compared to the 27,5 km of the American 203 mm ones. Additionally the Japanese were behind in anti-air protection of their ships, as their main 127 mm anti-aircraft guns reached a high of 14,7 km and 9,4 km far, while the main 127 mm American anti-aircraft guns reached height of 16 km and 11,3 km in range. The secondary Japanese anti-aircraft guns, the 25 mm ones had not only lighter caliber then the American 40 mm ones, but reached only a height of 7,5 km and a range of 5,5 km, while the American ones had a height of 10 km and a range of 7 km. This meant that the Japanese could dominate in a certain distance and their Admirals and Captains were told to utilize this in any engagement if possible. Another major thing the Japanese discovered and would use massively during the Solomon Islands and the New Guinea (Niugini/Niu Gini/ Papua) was the difference between radar and airplanes. While the Japanese Radars only reached a distance of 100 km, while the Americans had a far greater range of 130. This meant that the Japanese quickly tried to improve and increase the range of their radar during the rest of the Second great War. One field however were the Japanese dominated, was the overall range of their aircraft's compared to the American counterparts. Japanese fighters had a range of 500 km, more then double that of the American 200km range fighters. Not only that the Japanese ones even reached a bigger height and were at first the more maneuverable. The Japanese Empire who had better prepared for a Pacific naval War then the Americans also had bombers that had a range of 700 km compared to the American 460 km. Similarly the Japanese naval bombers had a range of 500 km compared to the American 280 km. The Japanese realized that this put them in a superior position and so they increased the use of land-based aircraft during the Solomon Campaign against the US Navy.

Their weaker radar however forced them to utilize their Balloon Brigades and Airships much more for the same cover and over watch of the surrounding areas. This additionally did not cost as much as constant scout plane recon missions int every direction. For naval battles, the Japanese had realized the superiority of American Carriers after Midway, as those carried much more airplanes in a single carrier compared to theirs. While this had the danger of loosing much more with the loss of a single carrier, the Japanese saw the advantage of bringing more airplanes into a battle with fewer carriers, thereby saving fuel too. This was one of the reasons why the future Japanese carriers in the Second Great War and later massively increased the size of their carriers in the Tairyū (Great Dragon)-class and the Taikaku (or Taitsuru)-Class (Great Crane)-class with 80 to 160 airplanes in this massive carriers. It also gave rise to the Rikishi (力士) fighter-bomber hybrid (named after the massive Sumo fighters), powered by four regular Sakae engines that were twice as long and wide as the Zero. This massive bomber-fighter hybrids could carry 4 torpedoes at once, or 4 massive anti-ship bombs, while the Rikishi was also armed with two Type 99-2 cannons in it's nose and four additional ones in the wings (two in each). The Rikishi was the result of the Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese navy demand for a new massive fighter and naval bomber that was increasingly dangerous to the American fleet but still small enough to fit inside the carrier hangers, or underground island bunker hangers. It would be the first combined Army-Navy aircraft development and combined project with a end product that both would use. Another lesson learned was that the Americans used their support ships with their anti-aircraft guns to additionally cover the carrier from dive bombers as well as torpedo bombers by putting them in a tight ring around the corridor they were supposed to protect.

Eddy your majesty what are you doing on the frontlines? Let the generals handle it!
In case you don’t understand it’s a reference on how Edward in my second timeline, Międzymorze, is the king of the Second Polish Commonwealth. Check it out if you’re interested.

Nice, will have to read it all soon. ^^
 
Idea for the Rikishi (力士) fighter-bomber hybrid insoired by
I’m contradicting to myself. I believe a squadron can devastate a small fleet with few lost, but it’s to big, look at that plane, it’s nearly as big as a small bomber. How can these “fighters” fight against Allies’s more maneuverable and maybe faster planes.
