This poll and post is even more difficult to answer than the combat poll.Â This one not only depends on prior combat, but also on the outcome of those combats.Â Your planned NCM can be obsolete and/or foolhardy by the time it’s time to make it.
Like Switch says, the best laid plans last only until contact with the enemy. (paraphrased)
An AA Gun only fires once per combat - in the opening fire step of the first cycle only. It has been this way (with different terminology sometimes but essentially unchanged) in Classic, Pacific, Europe, and Revised, both OOB and LHTR. Never any different.
Wasn’t really talking about Balancing of it, just thinking about how it would look. I’d say EE would be Soviet because as you said, Stalin had annexed the Baltic Republics, and Eastern Poland, both of which lie in EE. Also when Looking at GER its bigger than Germany actually is because it includes the Western half of Poland, and Czech which at this point Hitler had Annexed.
What is FIDA?
All AARevised games played in AAMC use FIDA bidding unless the players agree to another bid system prior to the game starting. FIDA stands for Flames of Europe, IAAPA, DAAK and AAMC, the four clubs that developed the bidding system. Under FIDA bidding, each player submits a number of IPCs for a bid. The lower bid plays Axis. Up to half of the value of those IPCs can be placed on the mapboard prior to the start of the game in new units. Germany can place units in territories and sea zones that already contain German units. Japan can place units in territories and sea zones that already contain Japanese units. Neither Axis player can place units in territories or sea zones where it does not already have units. The remaining balance of IPCs from the bid can be given to either Germany or Japan or split in whatever manner the Axis player chooses.
Example of a bid: 15, 1 Inf in Ukraine, 1 Rtl in Libya, 6 IPC Germany, 2 IPC Japan.
