LHTR 2.0 says to this:
“If the attacker has not withdrawn all units, defending submarines may submerge.”
This implies defending subs submerge after the attacker has chosen to either retreat (or submerge) or not.
(page 16 - Condition B) Defender withdraws subs by submerging)
Page 14 is more to the point.
It categorically states that the Attacker choses to press the attack or retreat BEFORE defending submarines chose to submerge or remain surfaced.
Hi Guys long time no type. It’s been a wile since I have played this one so I’m knocking out the cobwebs. You will also have to forgive me since I don’t have the board in front of me.
Let’s say I’m Germany and this is a few turns into the game. I have my Med. transport and battleship in that inlet by the Caucuses.
The UK has their Destroyer in the SZ adjacent to Italy. I have my battleship and some fighters based in Italy take out the UK Destroyer.
(Here’s my question) Can I have my transport pick up troops in the Balkans or Caucuses and land them in North Africa (Germany controlled of course) where the sea battle just took place?
Yes, in non-combat.
The Japanese capitol ships are irreplaceable…That is Japans weak link…Wipe their navy out,however you can and Japan falls like a ripe apple.They wont be able to build an army large enough,nor have enough time to fight Russia
I agree, however its not that easy to catch the Japan navy if they play smart. I f the US navy at Pearl Harbour is destroyed at J1 it will take several turn before US can destroy the Japan navy if it stays together. And if US want to land in France it will even harder for the US navy get the upper hand on Japan. But it is possible, ive seen it happen.
Yes, you can do the move described in the first post (move, then load, then offload).
I believe the theory behind not allowing transports to offload in two territories is the fact that deployment into significantly different areas will take time. For example - if you have a division in Alaska, and another in Western Canada, and there are no enemies nearby, you could meet up halfway and get on a transport. But if you are on a transport and offloading, that transport would have to sail to a different region to offload troops in any geographically significant other location. So FUNCTIONALLY, the transport can only offload into one territory.
