I said that u have to move units to mainland, if u can read…
What, you know I can’t read! I just have my secretary read these forums.
Generally the best units compared with cost/ability are tanks, art, inf.
All u have to do is to get these units to the mainland of afr, europe etc.
Tactics is another issue.
3 powers must buy IC or trannies to ship units.
Apart from that naval units are not useful.
But, if the opponent kills your fleet then u can’t move units to mainland….
If the opponent does not attack your lone trans, or 4-5 trans together, it would be stupid to buy protection.
I don’t regard trannies as naval units.
Well, since it would be stupid for your opponent NOT to blow up your lone transport or unescorted transport fleet, then it is probably SMART to buy protection.
Anyways, what you’re saying - if I understand correctly - is that you DO want to have a navy, but you usually want it to be of relatively little size. Which is what I’m saying when I say that in different situations, different units ought to be bought. So I think we agree on that, unless you don’t, and if we don’t agree, then I’m sure you can post and tell me so.
Trans are a necessity to bring units from point a to point b.
For discussions I guess it’s most convenient also to regard trannies as naval units, but I see trannies the same way
as I see IC’s. And IC’s are not the same as tanks and infantry…? U can’t kill enemy forces or occupy land TT’s with IC’s.
ICs and transports are different animals. Transports can be taken as casualties in a naval battle, which is why J1 transport builds are far better in most cases than J1 IC builds. ICs cannot move and are thus vulnerable to enemy attack. ICs are vulnerable to strategic bombing (although this is of limited application in most games, it is a factor in, say, a German Rocket game in which UK puts an IC in India). Transports need to be near an IC or at least transportable infantry to be of best effect, while ICs can be put in the middle of nowhere and pump units out. Transports are more diverse, allowing (for example) infantry produced at Japan to be landed anywhere from Western Canada, Alaska, Soviet Far East, Burytia, Kwangtung, French Indochina, (and other various islands).
Dictated but not read. :roll:
