the 1939 rules explicitly spell this out… specific units are allocated as Vichy and others are free French… Its really very simple.
Not trying to ask the same questions over and over, but please understand that “its not always simple” for the newer players to these rules, (regardless of other version experience) even the written rules. IL,You can sneeze and lose more game knowledge than some us have in total. A written sentence to you represents paragraphs of written drafts, and months if not years of discussions and changes, not to mention your actual game time.
OK to clarify i was thinking that your looking too far into this as “really complicated stuff” but its pretty intuitive ideas. ILl try and be more patient. Do not stop asking questions.
1939 rules:When Paris falls the French player immediately surrenders and the following forces are allocated for Vichy or Free-French control:
Vichy France consisting of (Vichy France, Algeria, Madagascar, Indo-China, and Levant States):
4 Infantry and 1 Artillery (Neutral but placed by the axis player in any manner he chooses)
Free-French consisting of (French West Africa and Equatorial Africa): 2 Infantry, 1 Cruiser, 1 Destroyer (If available and controlled by British player).
This is easy to understand. But what happens to the Cruiser, Destroyer and 2 transports France started the game with?
these are considered scuttled ( sunk) to resemble actual historical reality ( British attacked french fleet, and french sunk a few ships to prevent the Germans from getting them. So even if France lost their entire army and navy, they would still be placing those same units once they fell. Those units represent the formation of cadres of free french and vichy forces post defeat.
Obviously they can only build infantry as per rules, unless they make a factory. Also, the Burma road while open allows some minor aid to flow to China.
2 IPC infantry, 3 IPC aid from UK per turn while Burma road is open.
Can infantry units be made in China’s capital without a factory?
Yes infantry can be made in cities because they have VC and as you know Infantry can be built in them.
