UK 1st turn Pacific/Indian moves



  • @rjclayton:

    Watch out for SZ63!  Sometimes Japan will use it to land troops directly into WCAN and ALA from Japan in 1 turn!  Can sneak up on the US if you’re not careful!

    Unless there is a bid transport placed in sz60 before the start of the game, this would not be possible.  Japan starts the game with only 1 Trn in range of Alaska and WCan and cannot launch 2 amphibious assaults from 1 transport.

    However, this is certainly an option on J2 or J3 after most of the UK and US units have been moved east to fight the Germans.

    Agree.

    Note: I said in 1 turn, not in Turn 1! (meaning that from Japan a transport could reach all the way to unload in WCAN)

    Right you are, “1 turn” not “Turn 1”.  I see the distinction now.

  • @ncscswitch:

    The thing is, you can pretty much take out the US with a lesser landing than that…
    Japan lands in Alaska and WCan from SZ63
    Japan lands in Mexico from Hawaii
    Germany lands in Panama, Cuba, and ECan.
    USA (the 48 states) has not been TOUCHED , but they are effectiely out of it, at least for many, many turns (unless the UK can get the German ships, or Russia can kick Japan out of Asia in the same turn)

    How are you going to pull of a landing like that? Germany shouldn’t have a chance of landing t three different territories

    It’s assumed that Japan has 5 inf 5 tank in W. Canada, while Germany lands 4 inf 4 tank or so with a Baltic transport buy on G1 followed by move to W. Europe followed by transport to E. Canada.  Following turn allows landing in Panama and Cuba as US is on defense.

    HOW COULD U MISS DAT?  LOLZ!

    (I’m kidding . . . anyone could miss that.  Hell, I still don’t get it, really.)
