You cannot kill them all, if you do, how will you gloat?
Oh yeah. You have to leave some of them alive so you can point and say “Nyah, nyah, we beat you.”
The UK has Egypt with an air base and 3 fighters. If Italy moves a warship into sz 98 (adjacent ), aND then GermanyGermanys following turn they move transports into the zone for an assault, can the fighters scramble even though I own the sz?
Absolutely. And the Italians cannot join in, as the Germans are the aggressors.
Owning the SZ is not relevant.
wittmann is right, the Italians can’t participate in the German attack so they are bystanders. By rule the German transport should endure one round of combat, then it can retreat if still alive (unless you are playing a friendly game and allow the German player to rethink his move based on the new info).
