Firstly, I wanted to check the rules on this but I dropped a minor IC in Egypt and my friend has since informed me that it’s an illegal move as I can only put one down where the territory has a value of 3 or more. Is this correct?
Secondly, following on from my last thread, I’ve since played out the full turns and the following has happened.
Germany only has normandy.
Italy has rest of France.
UK Navy from 110/111 is intact.
IC in Egypt
96/97 Italy Fleet is dead.
Japan have not declared war but made small inroads in China and moved all fleet to Sz20 (with the exception of what started in Caroline Island)
UK has activated Greece
Italy has split force from Ethiopia and has taken Syria.
Germany have activated Finland
1 loaded US Transport sits at Iceland
Russia has retreated leaving 1 infantry in all bordering territories. 18 Infantry are in Novogorod and about 13 in Ukraine.
UK Europe has put an IC in Egypt and put all fleet from 110/111 in Sz119 with Transport/Destroyer from Canada and other Transport.
UK Pacific hasn’t done much except buy mech infantry and artillery and also put troops on Celebs. ANZAC have taken Java and bought a destroyer.
US have bought 2 carriers for Pacific and 2 Transports for Atlantic. Also moved the 2 transports from Pacific and are in Sz64. No German subs are left.
Intention is for Russia to reinforce again with 12 more infantry. Will put 3 in each IC and will start moving some down to NW Persia. Will move some troops up to the frontline to be ready to push Germany.
UK will buy a Naval Base for Iceland. (Allows Transports from US at Iceland to reach Norway/Denmark/Holland/Normandy in 1 Turn. 2 Mech Infantry would be purchased and deployed in Egypt to assist with Italian force. Unsure on rest. (Have total of 39 to spend)
US intention is to move Transports to US and load up. Can then reach Gibraltar. Want to buy 2 Carriers to accompany those Transports. From Gibraltar it can reach Italy where my friend has left no troops in Northern Italy
Major concern is ability to defend this fleet. Wonâ€t be able to attack Italy till T4. Alternative is to put it at British Guiana nr Brazil. Uk will need to purchase a naval base and furthest I can reach is Normandy or Tunisia. Less protection required then for the fleet.
We are both novice players so please ear that in mind!
