I tend to agree. In Revised the main reason to stack Bury was to take pressure off Borneo and Pearl, while simultaneously threatening Manchuria or the distracting the rest of the mainland. Here Pearl is a non-issue, there are less units to stack into Bury, the transit to East Indies takes longer even if USA goes south, and its easier for Japan to push the center or India out of sz 61. That said, if you were going to leave units behind in Bury, the only reason to do so is to hold the battleship and transport north in the first round, which you can probably accomplish just leaving 1 inf behind. Putting 5 into it, just seems like throwing the ipcs away. Stacking Yakut, or pushing down to hold the center, is likely more advantageous than stacking Buryatia on this board.
Sub Sneak Attack hit absorbtion VS Battleship with accompaning ships
I have a specific question concerning Naval battles between Battleships with accompanying ships VS Sub Sneak Attacks.
For example… Attacker has a Sub and the Defender has a Battleship and 2 Cruisers.
The attacker hits on the Sub Sneak Attack. Can the defender chose the Battleship to absorb that hit by turning the ship on its side allowing the two Cruisers and Battleship to return fire?
Hello and welcome Argonaut. You got it exactly.
Thanks for the quick reply wittmann.
