Question regarding loading allied land units onto allied transports



  • Could someone please clarify the following situation for me.

    US has troops in UK, wants to load them into UK transports in the channel.

    My understanding is this happens on the UK combat move phase?  Is that correct?  Can the UK load and unload the men at the same time?  When does the combat occur after the move is completed.

    Thanks

    No. The men load on the US go, could move on the British go, but unload on the following US go.

    This is covered in the rulebook:

    @Rulebook:

    Multinational Forces: Transports belonging to a friendly power can load and offload your land units.  This is a three-step process:
    1. You load your land units aboard the friendly transport  on your turn.
    2. The transport’s controller moves it (or not) on that  player’s turn.
    3. You offload your land units on your next turn.

    Unloading in an enemy territory occurs in your scenario in US’ combat move phase, followed by the battle.
    Unloading in a friendly territory occurs in US’ NCM phase.

    Thanks, sorry I missed that.
