Joint Army and Navy Basic War Plan Red was a war plan created by the United States Army and Navy in the late 1920s and early 1930s to estimate the requirements for a hypothetical war with Great Britain (the "Red" forces)


Haha you silly Americans actually planned for us invading you. That's just really funny. What a waste of time

Knowing us, we did it for fun. We like to work with any hypothetical where we get to shoot stuff, whether it's likely to happen or not

Too many words for me to focus on, is it basically a plan to invade Russia after the end of WWII? Cos that was a bad idea if so.

Yeah pretty much.

Churchill was being proper butthurt about the Russians.

Well, considering we ostensibly went to war in the first place to free the Polish from a foreign oppressor, and basically just left them with a different foreign oppressor, it probably seemed like a job half done.

TBH, any chance of success would have relied on pulling off a bluff that there were a couple dozen nukes available to use. By the end of 1946, they were still in single figures.

"The Soviet Union had yet to launch its attack on Japanese forces, and so one assumption in the report was that the Soviet Union would instead ally with Japan if the Western Allies commenced hostilities."

Russia and Japan against the US and Britain with the US and Britain being the invading forces. Actually really wanna know what would have happened in that war, because it could easily go either way.

Don't invade Russia in Winter.

It really was a waste of time. After all, if my interactions with British people are anything to go by, as soon as you got here, you'd all start complaining about the weather before dying of heatstroke as soon as the temperature got above 76º. You don't need a battle plan for people with the temperature tolerance of snowmen.

Further, in 1935 Americans planned to build three military airfields near the Canadian border and disguise them as civilian airports. "In February 1935, the War Department arranged a Congressional appropriation of $57 million to build three border air bases for the purposes of pre-emptive surprise attacks on Canadian air fields". The airfields were to be kept secret, but their existence was accidentally published by the Government Printing Office and reported on the front page of the New York Times on May 1, 1935.

Well done.

No ETR, this was for when Americans planned to invade the UK. It's an offensive plan. As in Americans would start the war, and then defend against invasion.

Edit: Oh wow scratch that I'm thinking of something entirely different. To be fair, GB was 14 billion USD in debt to America during that time.

I knew about operation unthinkable but not this lol @ how people in the US were still plotting to colonise canada even that late in history.

overall if it was before WWI this would somewhat make sense but a war between the US and UK in the 1920s/30s would be one of the stupidest wars in history as if the first two weren't stupid enough.

If Canada and Britain invaded the US, I would have no problem working as a collaborator. Do you think they'd be hiring translators? How's the health package?

when people say the french are pussies or w/e (with a bit of seriousness behind it) I think they basically just ignore everything that isn't WWII and that is a more complicated situation than 'lol french are terrible'.

Truth. Put one of those people at the front in Verdun (or any of half a dozen major battles along the French front) for an hour and see if they could take it.

Russian forces outnumbered the combined US and UK 2 to 1. There are things like technological and strategical factors but when the odds are like that you could throw a few nukes at them and still be screwed.

But it's a stupid thing to argue about in the first place so bleh.
