    5. Lend-Lease  (from AA Revised 2004 - National Advantage)
    “With the Ukraine lost and factories moving east, the Soviet Union could neither feed nor rebuild itself. The Allies came to its rescue.
    During your purchase units phase, you can convert units belonging to a friendly power into your units if they begin in or move into red territories. Remove the affected units from play and replace them with the same units of your own color.”

    When you replace the units, do you put them back where you got them from or does it have to be at your factory? And if you place them during your purchase phase, doesn’t this mean they can effectively move 2x in the same round? (USA moves transport of men to Russia on USA turn. Russia converts men during purchase phase. Russia can then move men in combat phase on Russia turn?)

    @Der:

    You just replace the units where they stand.

    @Der:

    Not really. Converting units is not moving units. As Russia always starts a new round, the allied units that are to be converted have moved (at latest) in the round before. In your example it is true that they move in two successive turns (USA then Russia), but these turns belong to different rounds, and those units still only move once per round.

    Best, P@nther
