NA's - Japanese Clarifications
JA 1: Japan is already buying Infantry at 2 IPC in the capital. Was this left over prior to Variable Infantry Costs or OOB?
This NA gives very little advantage over currently AARHE 4.0 ruleset (e.g., saves 1 IPC).
–------This is in addition to that, so they can build a bit more infantry for cheaper.
JA 3: Inclusive of Japan or 2 flight SZ’s (e.g., can they hit SZ 56 or only out to SZ 57)
These attacks may be launched if an Allied player move ships within 2 sea
zones from Japan, after all combat movement has been completed. Kamikaze may target specific enemy
ships, except for Submarines. They attack on a roll of 4 or less. This attack precedes all normal combat in
the sea zone ( defending ships fire AA rolls). Before any Kamikaze rolls you must announce all target(s). If
a Kamikaze is used during the enemy’s turn it counts as a naval battle in the sea zone. This attack precedes
all normal combat in the sea zone.
any two zones of any type from Japan. I don’t have a map to look
JA 5: “In 1945 it…” vs. “It 1945 it…”
“select which ship they want to hit” vs. “select which hit they want to hit”
–-------------Up to two Battleships you got or want to build in total now take 3 hits and can
select which hit they want to hit. If any unit is hit it’s sunk even if it takes two hits.
JA 11: “were” elite vs. “was” elite
–------grammar issues admittedly.
JA 14: “option of breaking non-aggression pact with USSR”
I don’t think this pact is spelled out anywhere in AARHE 4.0. I think this is a 1939 rule if memory is correct.
–-------sort of :Japan is not bound to attack Russia, and can avoid a war if she wishes. The Soviet player is bound to avoid attacking Japanese territories until either attacked or Germany falls. its in both rules somewhere.
JA 15: Is this a persistent NA or only used once?
e.g., Capture India on Turn 3 - double Income for India Turn 4
Capture Persia on Turn 4 - double Income for Peria Turn 5
Capture Trans-Jordan on Turn 5 - double Income for Trans-Jordan Turn 6
–-------------only once per game. the first time Japan takes these places.
