Hi hi, I imagine many of these questions where already answered. I’m very busy in my personal and work life so this thread is largely unread to me, I perused briefly the messages and gathered at least a few answers have been teased forth. I thought I would weigh in even though I am late to the show.
I have this all nicely formatted in a g-doc so lets see what happens when I post it here.
1a) Does Nationalist China have a Capital? There is a ‘star’ in Beijing, which is a Warlord until the modifiers are met that turn Shanxi into the KMT.
1b) If the Japanese capture it, do they get Nationalist Bank?
1c) When the CCP Territory is captured, does the Capturer take its Bank?
1a) China does not have as a minor Nation. Once it achieves the status of Major Nation, Beijing becomes the Capital, and functions as other Capitals do to other nations.
1b) Unlike in G40, it is impossible to capture bank in GW36.
1c) Unlike in G40, it is impossible to capture bank in GW36.
2)Aircraft vs Submarines
2a) Do all Aircraft �Spot� Submarines?
2b) Does the presence of Aircraft in combat prevent Submarines from submerging?
2c) Are lone Submarines (no friendly surface ships) insta-killed by Aircraft (CAP or Carried-based Aircraft)?
2a) Yes. If an airplane is capable of CAP, it can spot submarines.
2b) I believe someone has answered this question.
2c) If the CAP spots the sub, rolls and misses, the Submarine can then submerge.
3)Combat Air Patrol
3a) How exactly does Combat Air Patrol Work?
3b) Does the presence of CAP instigate combat with fleet/submarine moving into its Sea Zone?
3c) How does CAP work with Convoy raiding? Logic suggests you do not Convoy Raid a Sea Zone with CAP.
Is there a limit to how many aircraft are on CAP in one zone (IE. One Ship on Patrol in each Sea Zone)
3a) Ho dang,
3b) Yes indeed it does. I believe it also would trigger a scramble from any adjacent Airbase.
3c) CAP cannot Convoy Raid only Convoy Escort. Any number of aircraft can be placed in CAP in one Sea Zone (on one CAP token), but the benefits to Convoy Escort is only once (from the CAP token). Even if unstated, I imagine that that is reasonable gameplay logic behind the design of both CAP and Convoy Escort.
