"The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the force of the Crown. It may be frail - may shake - the wind may blow through it - the storm may enter, the rain may enter - but the King of England cannot enter - all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement!"
William Pitt addressing the House of Commons concerning the American Liberty System
GG - It's Tuesday and I want my pizza!!!
Germany holds most of Africa with 100% of Japanese forces being diverted to Egypt. England’s putting 6 units a round into Libya (3 infantry, 3 armor) and hitting Germany for 7 IPC in damage every round (taking 5 damage in return.) America is invading through Norway and W. Europe with 10 units a round with 5 bombers doing 17/18 IPC in damage (alternate rounds) and taking 12/13 IPC in damage (leaving me with plenty of income to keep at least 10 infantry, usually 6 infantry, 3 artillery, 1 armor) going into Asia.
Germany has yet to see a round after 1 with more then 40 IPC income. They are currently averaging closer to 38 IPC - 25 in SBRs for a net of 13 IPC to Russia’s 20-28 IPCs. Japan is no threat as they have to move all builds into Egypt to counter English reinforcements.
Germany has no Atlantic fleet. Their med fleet is augmented with Japanese battleships to prevent American fighters from sinking them.
Either way, those Canadian troops aren’t going anywhere by sea this turn.
Those Canadian troops (or troop if it’s just that arm) can still make it out. Just pick them/it up in sz9 instead.
You’re right. Good catch! I didn’t have access to the map when I wrote this. What I should have said was that you can’t load them in sea zone 1. You could move to sea zone 9, if it’s friendly, and pick them up from there. However, this does limit your options for movement to Algeria, the United Kingdom and Panama (and the Eastern US, though you don’t need a transport to go there), and then only in combat movement. If you’re trying to stop a UK counter-attack against an invasion of the United Kingdom, you need to either sink the transport or block sea zone 9.
Under LHTR, your only options for these troops are amphibiously assaulting Panama, Eastern USA, United Kingdom or Algeria. Under the box rules, you would also be allowed to leave the troops on board the transport at sea.
