Novgorod airbase scramble question

  • TripleA

    so germany drops into baltic states, no naval battle is occuring, but can russians scramble still?

    This came up in a game and no one know the answer.

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    YES, they may scramble.

    Fighters and tacs on an airbase can scramble into any sea zone that territory borders even if the enemy attack is not on that particular territory. A few examples:
    Allies attack Korea; the airbase on Japan can scramble to SZ 6.
    Axis attack Baltic States, Vyborg or Allied controlled Finland; the airbase in Novgorod can scramble to SZ 115
    Axis attack Karelia, Archangel, Nenetsia or Allied controlled Finland; the airbase in Novgorod can scramble to SZ 127
    Axis attack Normandy/Bordeaux or Allied controlled Holland/Belgium; the Airbase in Great Britain can scramble to SZ 110

    Those are just a few examples off the top of my head.

  • What if say the USN moves into an empty sz112 but doesn’t land any troops? Could ftr/tac scramble? If they can’t or the Germans don’t scramble, what happens when a uk transport then unloads into say norway or denmark? Any  scrambled air would only fight the Brit units right?

  • If the US forces are moving in Non-combat - which is what you described - then there is no scramble.
    Scrambling takes places after combat movement and before combat.

    If a UK transport tried to attack in SZ 112 and Germany scrambled, then only UK forces would fight.
    If it were only a transport, then scrambling would prevent UK from successfully being able to unload troops.

  • Awesome, thanks
