As im sure you know, the english language is often unkind when you use both “or” as well as “and” in a sentance
The Rule allows a up to three units to be placed. One may be a land unit, one may be an air unit and one may be a sea unit. Obviously the air unit can be placed in either Hawaii or SZ 26 (if there is a carrier)
You may not place units there if Japan (any axis power for that matter) controls the seazone.
4. The Great Patriotic War
Consider this……there will be a dead turn between the new Soviet production. Because they go right after germany, and have No IPCs germany still has the following turn to lump up Russia before it can start producing again. The rule may be strong, but it is no stronger than China, infact the rule is exactly the same as China operates. It is of little use to a good russian player, but pays its dividends in steering Germany away from a go for the throat approach to take Moscow. I am taking suggestions for replacing this NA however because it is by far the weakest Soviet one.
5. Katyusha Rockets
Remember…“and the infantry they support” Meaning the specific infantry they are supporting at 1:1
so if you have 3 artillery and 10 infantry. six dice rolling at “2” can be rerolled. You basicly just reroll 2s when attacking on the first round. I have played with this NA since I made it for AA50th and it is the best path. I considered having art attack at 3 on the first round, I considered art boositing their supported INF to 3…but 3 is reserved for the tank. Re-rolling the 2’s seems to work the best…and remember its only the Artillery and the Infantry they directly support
Very good point indeed, My knowlege of the Long Lance Torpedo comes entirely from the A&A War at Sea game. I cant belevie I never noticed the surface ships carried it almost exclusively. Woe is me. This rule may need changing. Perhaps Destroyers attack following the rules for first strike on the first round….though that is is powerful but simple. Perhaps instead cruisers and destroyers may choose to make a first strike roll during any combat phase instead of their normal attack, but at -1 to their attack value (destroyers at 1, cruisers at 2)
All in all im happy with most of them. The US and UK need some tweaking, perhaps Corps of Engineers, and The Sun Never Sets. Italy is the only other weak link. One or two of its are weak. I have so many in my head for Germany….but having more than 6 is just ridiculous.
