Can ships move 1 space then attack or do they have to start their turn adjacent?



  • Can ships move 1 space then attack or do they have to start their turn adjacent to their target?

    I know land units have to start adjacent to their assault target before they attack (with the exception of air units and blitzing tanks); are attacking ships the same way or not? For example can a battleship start nonadjacent to it’s target, move 1 (or even 2?) spaces which makes it adjacent and then attack?

    Similarly, during an amphibious assault can a loaded transport move 1 (or even 2) spaces uncontested into the coastal sea zone it’ll unload from and then proceed to unload/assault?

    I’m a beginner and I’m playing Spring 1942 and it’s awesome…thanks!



  • Yes they can move then attack

    Tanks don’t have to be adjacent to their attacking territory either. They can move 2 spaces to attack. For example, say you have a tank in Germany and you are attacking Baltic states. You can move through Poland with your tank and attack Baltic States.
