RE: Spanish Civil War - Question re: lend lease to repair facility
GHG, many thanks, I missed that reference in 7.4.
In that case, then, I think technically the naval base would be repaired in the Italy place units phase, which I think is when lend leased IPP arrives in the target country (in this case, Nationalist Spain).
Would Italy really be able to repair the facility and lend lease another unit? I thought a country could either lend lease IPP or a unit, not both?
But, in any case, the naval base would be operational by Germany’s turn, so they could lend lease a unit right after the Italians patch up the naval base.
Spanish Civil War - Question re: lend lease to repair facility
Hey everyone. new to this game and to this forum.
Just set the GW36 game up last night and thinking through strategies for the Spanish civil war (out of the box, not the expansion)
As the Republicans I am thinking about using the medium bomber to hit the Nationalist naval base in Leon-Castille to shut down any lend lease from the Axis.
My question is, if I hit the naval base for damage on the Republicans turn, and let’s say the Italians pay to fix it, does the fix happen when the Italians pay for it, or does it not happen until the Nationalists turn (which is technically Germany’s turn)?
And, I think the real issue, is the naval base fully operational and capable of receiving lend lease on Germany’s next turn?
Thanks for your help!
RE: Tanks - worth purchasing?
I found tanks very effective for A-H in one of my games. First, they allowed A-H to maintain a smaller offensive force on the eastern front against a weakening Russian Empire. 2 tanks could easily support an A-H force of 3-4 infantry and 2 artillery in Ukraine, allowing A-H to send minimal reinforcements east so the bulk could be sent to Italy. And since A-H can get tanks into Venice in two turns, they can be deadly against the Italians.
RE: Paris or Bust
Does Germany start with enough pieces to defeat France if Germany does nothing but build navy to keep the Brits from reinforcing the French?
This strategy would assume that AH devotes everything to the Russians to guard the Germans flank in the east and that AH can play defense in Italy.
