You guys are the best! Next game will be alot better as we will actually know what we’re doing with air units, especially with Japan and the US, as battles around the Pacific were the main confusion point, thanks switch and paintbrush…

New player and just wanted some clarification after having played on only one quick learning game…
1. Air Units After Battle: It says that air units can retreat to any friendly territory within movement range… So just to clarify, lets say just purely for example Russia is attacking from Archangle and Caucasus with land and air units into German forces in West Russia… and then Russia retreats, all the land units have to retreat back to either Arch or Cau, but can the fighters retreat to anywhere within 4 units (there movement range) of west russia?
Or is it more like, they have already moved 1 territory to attack, and so can only retreat 3 spaces away?
Also do they have to retreat when everyone else retreats on ur side?
and lastly do all the air units retreat together or can they go there own seperate ways, I’m assuming its the latter?
It just seemed a situation where your land units would attack a territory and u could pretty much have planes come in from anywhere to help out without much risk as they could just retreat back to whereever they came from if u were running short on land units to sacrifice. And in that case the air units seem to be able to move a long way, 4 spaces to attack and another 4 units back to retreat(or 6 with bombers or different with long range aircraft etc).
Final question is with islands and coastal territories and planes, lets say Japan has fighters in Manila (not on a Aircraft carrier) and wants to attack Hawaii, can they make that distance, so there move is SZ49,SZ58,SZ51 then there 4th movement is Hawaii, or is the 4th movement point SZ52 and then they need to be able to move 5 to attack Hawaii…
Very similar question I know but lets say a plane is in Eastern United States, on the land, not a carrier, it costs them 1 movement unit just to get into SZ10 right?
Hope the wording of my questions isn’t too confusing and any help is much appreciated…
thanks in advance guys
