Assuming there is an allied tranny in sz 14. Can Italy attack this tranny (making the sea zone hostile), and in the same time load troups from Italy to attack another territory with ?
If you do not attack the tranny, you can ignore it, so no problem. But if you declare the sea zone as hostile…
(1) For the purposes of determining if a sea zone is hostile, subs and tpts are ignored,
And if this appeals more to your sense of realism…
(2) Your combat move with the Italian tpt (step 3) occurs before the Italian ‘hostility’ against the tpt breaks out (step 4).
Either way, the Allied tpt sleeps with the fishes of sz14 and the amphib Italians can storm foreign shores in the same turn.
