South African national focus tree

From Hearts of Iron 4 Wiki

South Africa, along with other nations of the British commonwealth, has a unique national focus tree (part of the Together for VictoryTogether for Victory expansion). Without the expansion it utilizes the Generic national focus tree.

South Africa's unique NF tree (part of the Together for Victory expansion).

South Africa is a minor nation whose main feature is its unique position. Far away from Europe, it is the only African country with a national government (unless a player-led Ethiopia pulls off a miracle). Although South Africa is not affected by the Great Depression, it suffers from History of Segregation, which inflicts a crippling -55% recruitment factor on an already limited manpower pool. The nation has a small industry by Western standards, but it is far more developed than the rest of the continent. Once Europe has been engulfed in the flames of the World War, it will fall upon South Africa to protect the colonial empires - or destroy them.


South Africa's unique focus tree has six main branches:

War Measures Act
South Africa makes war preparations, mustering its industrial capacity as well as constructing strategic defensive forts. The first focus of the branch requires more than 20% world tension OR an authoritarian government. The final focus of the branch, Expand the Cape Corps, removes the recruitment factor penalty imposed by the ‘History of SegregationIdea saf history of segregation.png national spirit, bolstering its army reserves available for muster, though it is mutually exclusive with another focus, Outlaw Strikes, which increases industrial output.
Support the Policy of Appeasement
The democratic path, this branch reinforces cooperation with the rest of the Commonwealth. Secure Interests in Africa, the final focus, can create Kenya and Zimbabwe as South African puppet states if the United Kingdom agrees to transfer its faraway possessions.
Support the Afrikaner Broederbond
The fascist path. This branch opens the possibility to switch to fascism immediately by starting a civil war. The player can go for greater cooperation with Germany, which comes with substantial benefits, or start a faction of its own, with a policy of revanche targeting the United Kingdom. In either case, former British king Edward VIII can be selected as the head of state.
Empower the Workers
The communist path. One branch aligns South Africa with the Soviet Union. The other is the most unique of the focus tree, Anti-Colonialist Crusade: South Africa declares war on the colonial powers to liberate all of Africa from their rule.
Army
Provides bonuses to weapons, artillery and land doctrine research.
Air
Provides bonuses to aircraft and air doctrine research.
Navy
Focuses on the Navy, giving bonuses to ship models and naval doctrine research.

    Too often our experienced pilots move on to the RAF instead of staying with our own force. The RAF has better opportunities for advancement and combat. But we should endeavor to keep our trained pilots close to home where they can inspire and educate other South Africans.
