    Submarines attack aircraft carrier with planes but no defensive destroyer

    • do the airplanes defend?

    Submarines attack ships off an island with potentially scambling planes but no defending destroyer

    • can the airplanes scramble and defend without a destroyer?

    Submarines solely escorting transports, airplanes attack subs and transports

    • are the transports just dead because the subs cant defend against planes and the planes can’t attack the subs?

    Submarines and other ships attacking ships off an island with potentially scrambling planes but no defending destroyer

    • can hits from defending planes be allocated to subs even without a defending destroyer?

    Thanks for the help and we love the new games.

    • do the airplanes defend?

    Yes, but since they cannot be hit by submarines, nor hit submarines, they do nothing but fly around overhead looking for a place to land. (1 Movement point given free, to find a safe landing area.)

    • can the airplanes scramble and defend without a destroyer?

    Yes, but since they cannot be hit by submarines, nor hit submarines, they do nothing but fly around overhead and land back on their island.

    • are the transports just dead because the subs cant defend against planes and the planes can’t attack the subs?

    Yes, the fighters shoot up the transports and go home, the submarines cannot participate int the battle.

    No, there is no possible method for a plane to hit a submarine without a destroyer present to tell them where the submarine is.

    Likewise, no matter what you do, you cannot hit planes with a submarine.  So, theoretically, if the attacker chose to lose all his surface ships, you had no destroyer and you kept your planes, the submarines would be able to continue shooting at your ships and your planes could do nothing.

    I have used this countless times to sink Carriers and Battleships out from under the Naval Air Corps.


  • I have follow most of the the advice from Jim010 set-up
    and it look like this:

    The result of R1 German attack I played with myself, and I feelt
    the German not was lucky.

    The result

    I must say the situation for UK is very worring, UK have to
    buy 8 INF and 1 ART, even fly the tac-figther to London and
    sail 1 INF and the ARM home from New Brunswick, maybee loosing
    the TT

    Cant wait to play this one on my littel brother!

    If German attack with:
    4 INF
    3 Fighter
    3 Tac bomber
    and the the fleet
    against UK
    10 INF
    3 Fighter

    The odds for Germany victory is 57,5 % victory - capturing London


  • Ups sorry ….wrong topic  :roll:


  • To answer all of your questions, planes and submarines cannot attack each other unless there is a destroyer. Period

    submarines hits can NEVER be assigned to planes, destroyer or not.
