How many subs do you recommend attacking SZ106 with? 2 subs or 3 subs? If the answer is 3 subs that leaves only 2 subs to attack SZ109 with, along with one FTR and one S. Bomber. I don’t see any other aircraft that can reach SZ109 on the first turn. Attacking SZ109 w/only 2 subs seems a little light, as the UK can scramble 3 FTR’s to help rescue SZ109. So I’m guessing the best strategy is to attack SZ109 w/3 subs to help absorb casualties, in case the UK player scrambles? And only attack SZ106 w/2 subs? If only Germany had one more sub…
Retreating from a combined amphibious assault and land attack. Is it possible?
Go, fellow A&A’ers!
Yes the units that came from ships cannot retreat the rest can.
This is why its important to keep the units overland/oversea separate and it may affect how you take casualties (losing armor before cheaper stuff) if the first 1-2 rounds of combat go badly for you, you’ll want to lose the seaborne units first, and all of them, so you can run away! run away!
Take the amphibious units as your casualties in the first round. The amphibious units can’t retreat–they have to fight to the end.
