Several Questions????



  • Here are some random rules questions that I would like cleared up:

    Can Chinese units be placed on a territory that it just captured? ex. If China takes Manchuria with 1 Inf remaining, can it place its “purchased” Inf on it that turn? If so, can US planes land on a newly captured Chinese territory?

    Does the 3 unit limit refer to Chinese or Allies units?

    Can a US plane attack a German sub if a UK destroyer is present?

    1 Sub attacks 1 Carrier w 2 Fighters, do the Fighters roll for defence?

    Placing Fighters on newly built Carriers: you can place newly built Fighters on newly built Carriers, right? Do existing Fighters have to end their movement in the territory where the Carrier is to be placed, or do they simply land on the territory where the Factory producing the carrier is? This could be important if a Fighter is low on movement.

    Here’s a situation that has bothered me for a while:
    Let’s say that Japan has 5 Transports in a SZ (a juicy target), next to that SZ they have 3 Battleships with Destroyers, Carriers, etc… it’s huge. One SZ away from this huge Jap fleet is 1 US Carrier w 1 Fighter, and 1 Destroyer. If the Jap Transports are 3 spaces away from the US fleet, the Jap Battleships etc 2 spaces, and 1 empty SZ in between, could you attack the huge Jap fleet with your Destroyer (the assumption being you could theoretically win any battle), and plan to move your Carrier into that SZ in NC Movement, while sending your Fighter to attack the Transports?
    The best way I can put it is: can you sacrifice any given warship in order to send Fighters on a suicidal attack under the assumption that your Carrier will be in range in NC Movement? Obviously, it would be worth it for the US in this case. However, the US Destroyer will obviously die, and the US Fighter will have nowhere to land. In this case, does the plane “crash”, thus allowing the US to sacrifice some units for a big payoff, or is this situation not legal at all?

    Thank you

    @Rammstein:

    Yes.

    @Rammstein:

    If so, can US planes land on a newly captured Chinese territory?

    No.  The US and China share a turn, so planes from either nation can’t land in territories captured by either one on the same turn.

    @Rammstein:

    Does the 3 unit limit refer to Chinese or Allies units?

    Chinese units only, including the Flying Tigers.

    @Rammstein:

    Can a US plane attack a German sub if a UK destroyer is present?

    No.  The UK destroyer will not be involved in the battle, so it doesn’t enable the plane to hit the sub.

    @Rammstein:

    1 Sub attacks 1 Carrier w 2 Fighters, do the Fighters roll for defence?

    No, since there is no defending destroyer.

    @Rammstein:

    Placing Fighters on newly built Carriers: you can place newly built Fighters on newly built Carriers, right?

    Yes.

    @Rammstein:

    Do existing Fighters have to end their movement in the territory where the Carrier is to be placed, or do they simply land on the territory where the Factory producing the carrier is? This could be important if a Fighter is low on movement.

    The fighters must end their movement in the sea zone in which the carrier will be placed.

    It’s legal.  As long as there is any chance whatsoever, no matter how remote, that the fighter will be able to land, the move is legal.
