Transports offloading in a hostile sea zone



  • The rule book says transports can ignore enemy subs and offload if at least one warship to the attacking power is present. What if the warship is a destroyer, would that cancel the submersible ability of the subs and therefore the destroyer has to fight them?, or can the destroyer ignore them as well along with the other warships? And also, for example, a us battleship and transport are doing an amph. assault on seazone where there is one german destroyer and sub. Can the us player fight the destroyer and ignore the sub and let the transport offload; or does the defender choose whether he wants the sub to participate in combat or not in this case?

    The attacker decides to either ignore or engage the enemy submarine.  In case the attacker decides to fight, the destroyer cancels the submarine’s ability to submerge.

    In this case sea combat occurs including all units present in that seazone. The defending submarine may submerge as there is no attacking destroyer present.

    HTH 🙂
