I have tried this and it has worked. Bought all fighters turn one. Then all bombers turn two by turn three england landed in France and the US had like 6 fighters, 2 bombers, 2inf a tank and art in france after england had secured it the previous round. US took italy next turn and game ended shortly after. It was a few years ago so i cant recall anymore specifics. The key is pooling all available aircraft and witholding from Op. Torch. Also England needs naval dominance which sometimes doesnt happen with a G1 carrier build
Shore Bombardment vs Air units ?
The rules state Shore Bombardment works against LAND units. So defending air units can not be taken as casualties in for a hit ?
In the original rules, I believe you’re right. The Larry Harris Tournament Rules amends it to allow for air units to be bombarded. See the bottom of page 12. http://www.axisandallies.org/files/AAR_LHTR_v2.0.pdf
Thanks for the info!
But, on p. 27 in the unit profiles, it says land units…
Fleetwood Dan is correct. It’s land units only in the box rules, and both land and air units in LHTR.
