    ok, so i am a little bit confused about the new mech infantry and the new blitzing ability,

    during aa50, blitzing worked like this:
    Blitz: Tanks can “blitz” by moving through an unoccupied hostile territory as the first part of a two-space move that can end in a friendly or hostile territory. This complete move must occur during the Combat Move phase. By blitzing, the tank establishes control of the first territory before it moves to the next. The second territory can be friendly or hostile, or even the territory the tank came from. A tank that encounters enemy units in the first territory it enters must stop there, even if the unit is an antiaircraft gun or industrial complex.
    because of this, you could for example:
    Q.  Bombers carrying Paratroopers must stop moving in the first hostile territory they enter.  If a tank is blitzing through an unoccupied hostile territory, does a bomber entering that territory during the same Combat Movement phase have to stop there, or can it keep moving?
    A.  Since the territory is captured as soon as the blitzing tank enters it, the territory is considered friendly at that point, and the bomber may continue its movement.

    so now….
    with pac40,
    question 1) can you take an empty territory with a single tank, then move 10 mech infantry through it to attack the enemy territory beyond it all during the combat phase?

    question 2) can you take an empty territory with say, 3 tanks and 3 mech infantry, move through it and attack the enemy territory beyond it, win that battle, then during the non-combat move, back up that territory by moving 10 mech infantry there through the now conquered enemy territories?
