What about a Spring 01 move to Armenia, paired with moves to Ukraine and Sevastopol? Turkey rarely moves to Armenia, and this would then put Turkey in a weekend positioned against Austria and hopefully allow a small chance at taking the Black Sea by a follow up to Black Sea in the Autumn while you take Rumania from Ukraine or Sevastopol.
How does Russia have a chance to take Black Sea? They're not even guaranteed Rumania at that point.

Ah, Russia moving to Armenia. I misunderstood.

Won't Turkey just order BLA-Rum S Bul, Con-Ank? What's your move to counter that?

My approach is the following. In my opinion Germany is the strongest power in gunboats, Russia is the weakest. So the only thing I would do is give some extra power to Russia at the expense of Germany.

I "started" looking at these games, meaning I made a google sheet that I'll forget about in a few days...but anyone with this link can edit it.
