in that specific instance my bud was trying to save the UK Indian ocean fleet but attack the German transport with two planes as well. He was going to land both fighters in Egypt after the attack and retreat the UK fleet to SZ33. This was a round 1 UK1 turn. We ended up not allowing it, it just seemed too complicated so he attacked with one fighter.
Some thing funny though, he was trash talking about how he was going to pound me and another one of my friends with the allies. He lost 4 UK fighters and a bomber in UK1 from AA and transports ROFLMAO. I couldn’t believe it, one of the transports survived too hahaha. Karma’s a [insert bad word].
