What is classified as a surface warship? Battleship, Destroyer, and cruisers?


Carriers also. Only subs and transports aren't.

Correct
That's a bit of a loophole IMO. They can't hit the sub on the attack but they can still ignore it.

Loophole? Why? What else than a surface warship should a carrier be? It is way more than just a 'transport', just think of the defense value.

Even transports can ignore subs, subs can ignore subs, so why should a carrier (together with all the other surface warships) not be able to ignore subs?

In case you refer to the rule that a transport needs an escorting warship in order to unload from a seazone that contains an (ignored) enemy submarine - this is not related to the ability to ignore or to attack or to hit.

I was thinking from the point of view of ignoring a sub to do an amphibious assaults. A CV can be used to escort the TT even though it can't hit it. If you could scramble a single plane there is zero chance of the amphibious assault proceeding even with a massive air force supporting the attack.

French-speaking players:

I've summarized the rules, units abilities and national objectives in a 10-page pdf  file that can be distributed to the players. I've done it because I'm gonna host a first play with friends next week. I could translate it back to English if there is some interest in it. Cheers

I cant post link here so please go to BGG and look for new files under A&A 1940 Europe.

I have a question now, if the community could give an advice. We are going to be 4 or 5 at our first A&A 1940 Global play. I'll know very soon if we are 4 or 5. I want that players don't wait for too long until they can play and if possible have something to play with on each board (except Axis players). I have thought of this configurations, what do you think?

If 5 :
Germany + Italy
Japan
vs
France + UK
USSR + ANZAC
China + USA

If 4
:
Germany + Italy
Japan
vs
France, UK, USSR
ANZAC, USA, China

I agree with your 4 player configuration, but for 5 players... I would have Russia play China and America play ANZAC.

Thank you very much Young. I'll follow your advice. Would you recommend using your home rules (national objectives and R&D) also to complete newbies?
