I have a question about defending submarines.
The attacking player launched an amphibious assault with only one defending submarine in the sea zone.
The attacking player has 3 fully loaded transports, one submarine, and one destroyer
the defender has one submarine
the attacker misses with both sub and Destroyer
the defender rolls a one and hits attacking Sub
The attacker misses again with the destroyer
The defender hits on a one again and sinks the destroyer.
This leaves just the sub and the three transports in the sea zone.
My question is: what happens to the transports?
- are they destroyed with all cargo lost?
- can they retreat or cancel the amphibious invasion?
- can they ignore the sub and continue to offload
Although these are very unlikely dice rolls this is the exact situation our game is in and there is some debate as to how this can be handled. Any insight is greatly appriciated.
