Wow, thanks for the clarification, it was driving me crazy!

I was trying axis and allies online and noticed i could move sea units in combat move phase, even if these units weren’t attacking. I looked at manual and said “you may move as many of your units into as many hostile territories and sea zones as you wish”. Does it mean I can move ,say, a battleship into a sea zone in combat move phase even if no combat occurs (i.e., sea zone is empty)?
Related question: can I then move transports with cargo in combat move phase? (I was under the impression that if I was going to conduct an amphibious assault yes, but If it was a normal offload this should be conducted on non-combat movement phase)

Yes, thanks, I knew about LHTR but didn’t look at it yet. I was trying to game OOB.
But after a quick glance at LHTR I changed of idea. This variant rules clarifies A LOT of situations and doubts I had.
Seems that (correct me if I am wrong) under OOB rules planes attack and move on move combat phase (and thus can be attacked by AA on their way back).
Under LHTR, planes complete moves on non-combat movement phase and cannot be attacked by AA.
Is that alright?
I have just bought the game and read the instructions. No game has been played yet because I had many doubts…most of them have been solved in this great forum.
I still have one (is more a request for confirmation than a doubt, but)…regarding air units. If I choose to attack a land unit with, say, a bomber, do I have to include the regions after the attack that I need to go through to land in the total range of the bomber? I.e. bombers have range 6. Suppose I attack a region 3 spaces away. The bomber moves, attacks, survives any AA or land attack, and then comes back to its original base. Total move: 6. Is this correct?
Another one: air units ignore hostile forces on territories. Including other air units? Suppose the example above but let’s say in territory #2 enemy has a couple of fighters. Can my bomber just go through unharmed? Does it have to stop and fight the airplanes?
Santiago, very noob general.
