The U.S are going to attack you!
Move along there is nothing to see here :mrgreen:
I played a new opponent F2F last weekend. I had all 6 chart 2 techs for USA and then he got heavy bombers for Germany. Then I realized that since I had radar for the US, I could export an American AA to the UK to double their protection against Strat bombing. My opponent protested loudly (and I haven’t even done it yet). He didn’t think the teched up AA gun could shoot at his bomber. I said I thought the best AA gun in the territory could fire. I haven’t double checked, but I believe the rules are not crystal clear on the matter. I asked him “what if I transport the British AA away from the UK and the USA AA is the only one there?” He didn’t like that either. I suppose he just wanted to bomb the daylights out of me with minimal consequences. What say you?
It’s perfectly legal for a US AA gun to be moved to the UK (place a US NCM under it to indicate ownership). You can have more than one AA gun in a territory. When enemy planes attack, only one AA gun can fire, but it’s up to the owning player(s) which one that will be.
I agree with Krieghund too. There is nothing stating you cannot do that. As well gamerman01, great for you to even think of doing that. Not sure I would have!!
Yep, we are in round 10, and I have 6 techs with USA. I never rolled more than 2 a turn (except 3 in last turn to get heavies I guess), and I think none in the first round. I was incurring heavy pyschological damage on my opponent by rolling 2 a turn and usually getting a 6! Lucky for him Heavy Bombers were the last one I acquired.
If we continue our game, I will definitely have to move the radar to the UK. Hopefully I have a transport off the Eastern US right now. Thanks guys for backing up my interpretation of the rules. I won’t feel cheesy for doing it now.
if USA gets radar, buy about 3 aa guns. put 1 in the UK, 1 in russia and 1 in cau. that will help keep the axis from SBRing uk and Russia to death. seems whenever i try for tech with the US, i always get radar first. some people say “worthless tech for USA”. i say not. send the aa gun from washington to london first, then get some over to russia.
You’re right - it’s far from worthless for USA.
Only problem is, if my radar deters my opponent from SBR, it just makes it more likely he’ll bomb my units and I won’t even get the AA at “1” chance!!
yes but then you’ll get a chance to shoot down his bombers with something that rolls def at at least 2. unless you have some bomber on bomber action going on…
