Basically agree with one exception:

IMHO even the war of 2290/91 went off "half cocked" on the German side (similar to 1870/71(1)) and I am not sure they would be ready so shortly after the French-Chinese thing. I could see them stiring up more rebellions to keep the French Navy busy and, depending on the final losses of the French, actually DELAY the war another 3-5 years, getting a few more Hamburgs and Sachsens

(1) I.e the Germans had just selected a new and superior rifle (Mauser 1871) shortly before the war but only managed to introduce it after the war
Engineers time estimate: The software will be done March 15th, 11:14:36.... What do you mean \"what year\"?
