[Conflict] Italian Defensive Plan
Due to the completely unexpected and unprovoked nature of this attack, Italy has decided to not give the French a reason to fight.
The current Italian plan for invasion is to form a dug in defensive line on the eastern borders of Piemonte, and evacuate the region to the rest of Italy. They are told not to fire unless fired upon.
The Italian air force will return from Romania to blow up roads and rail lines in the Alps and Piemonte, and perform interceptions and escorts against French and German planes.
The remaining and out of service tanks and IFVs will be dug into holes along this line, and turned into bunkers, or used to move to defend against assaults
