AARHE: Victory City Infantry Purchase-Japan



  • Three questions regarding the purchase abilities at the Japaneze (China) Victory City Hsinking:

    1.  Is the purchase of infantry 3 or 4 IPC?  It is not conected by land (as required for a 3 IPC purchase) but then NOTHING is connected to Japan by land.  Japan’s tough luck?

    2.  What is the building cabability of the factory in Manchukuo for the Japs?  We have had long dialogs on this forum regarding limiting the Chinese factorys to building only cannons due to resources and technology.  And limiting the factory in India to building cannons and mech infantry for the same reason.

    What about Manchukuo?

    3.  Could/should we make the same agruement for any factory in a 3rd world country?

    Japan and Italy Infantry Cost
    Original Capital Victory City 3
    Other Victory City 4

    they cost 4 IPC, while Infantry raised in Japan cost 3

    2.  What is the building capability of the factory in Manchukuo for the Japs?  We have had long dialogs on this forum regarding limiting the Chinese factory’s to building only cannons due to resources and technology.  And limiting the factory in India to building cannons and mech infantry for the same reason.

    Remember you use the 4X rule, which is IPC value x 4= total IPC value of placements in Manchukuo

    3.  Could/should we make the same argument for any factory in a 3rd world country?

    Yes the rule applies the same for new factories, except they have various costs ( variable costs) to build these factories.  Chinese did have artillery and if they went to make some tanks it would be a waste anyway because of their low infantry production capability



  • oldsalty, regarding India and third world I think the problem is best addressed by playing with custom income values (rather than a specific rule)

    AARHE don’t adjust it as it intends to be a house rule rather than a variant
    even then variant map “AARHE 1939” is not that “pure” and gave India 4 IPC hehe

    buy some number chips, Imperious can probably tell you where to get that kind of stuff
