Theoretical maximums

Inspired by this comment, I was interested in calculating the maximum damage Voice of America could do on Turn 10 AR7 (ignoring North Sea Oil for now).

My best attempt (totally unrealistic):

Asia: Japan is 0/4 and USSR controls one non-BG.  North Korea is 3/1 and US controls one non-BG.  VOA removes 1 from Japan and NKor.  This gives the US:

2 points for Japan
2 points for NK
4 points for USSR from domination to presence
4 for US domination

Europe: EGer is 0/3 and USSR controls a non-BG.  Poland is 3/1 and US controls one non-BG.  VOA removes influence from EGer and Poland.

1 point for EGer uncontrol
2 points for Poland
4 points for USSR domination -> presence
4 for US presence->domination

Total of a 23VP swing (!)

That Asia one is deadly!  Isn't VoA strictly non-European though?

Darn, you are right!  I guess you'd have to switch in Middle East/Central America/South America, which is a lot less lucrative...

USSR Controls Cuba, and Mexico + Non-BG
USA Controls Panama + Non-BG

1 Inf form Cuba and Mexico=

2 for Cuba
2 for Mexico
2 for lost of domination
2 for gaining domination

8 VP overal (+ Asia as calculated by theory)

South America:

Venezula 0/2
Brazil 1/2
Both Superpowers 1 Non-bg each

1 for Venezuela
1 for Brazil
3 for domination
3 for domination

8 VP (same as Central America)

Africa gets the same result (1+1+3+3)

Therefore max is 8 + Asia (12)=20

USA controls Nigeria, Angola, Zaire, and Algeria. South Africa is 3/1.
USA controls Venezuela and Columbia, and USSR controls Chile.
USA controls South Korea and Taiwan. Soviets control Japan.
USA controls Israel and Lebanon, and the Soviets control Egypt.
Removing 1 soviet influence from South Africa, Chile, Japan, and Egypt, gives US:
2 battlegrounds, 2 from eliminating a Soviet battleground, 1 from eliminating a USSR country adjacent to the US, 3 for breaking USSR presence, 4 more from Asia domination, 5 from Africa control, 2 from breaking SA presence, 3 more from SA domination, 3 from breaking ME presence, 2 more from ME domination.
This is a total of 27 points. I do not believe you can get any higher score.
