New Hebrides is a french island between NewZealand and Soloman Is.If Japan takes this when not at war with UK/Anzac/USA,does it have any political consequence?
No, just see:
Japan may attack French territories
at any time, requiring no declaration of war against any
Allied power before doing so.
France’s capital has been captured by Germany. As a result,
French territories are treated in the same way as any Allied
territories whose capital is held by an enemy power (see
‘Liberating a Territory,’ page 20).
US turn 2
Japan isn’t at war with anyone, except China.
Japan has a transport in SZ 6, with no warships
The US moves their sub into this sea zone
Japan turn 3, they declare war
Does the US sub get to shoot immediately?
Does it get to shoot, if Japan attempts to move the transport?
Can Japan move a surface warship into the sea zone, stop the attack, then load and move the transport?
From the rulebook, page 6:
The Allied powers include the United States, China, United Kingdom, and ANZAC.
and page 10:
When all of the territories this road passes through
are controlled by the Allies during China’s Collect Income
phase, China receives a bonus income of 6 IPCs per turn.
Even without an industrial complex, China can purchase and
mobilize artillery, but only if the road is open during China’s
Purchase and Repair Units phase.
