thanks for your patience too.
it’s cool that you have answered so promptly. we all have a life to live. And personally I am interested in know what the other game would be, if you don’t mind sharing.
another issue to address.
Rule II.5c. “Bomber can strategic bomb industrial complexes, air bases, and naval bases. Can transport 1 infantry per bomber and drop paratroopers. Defend in a SBR with a roll of a 1.”
Para-trooping is not related to Bombers in G40, as far as I know. In the AA franchise, the closest resemble of such rule is in Anniversary, and it is different from what is written above.
My intuitive interpretation of the written statement is as follow. Each bomber can either pick up an “Airborne” unit (see set-up chart) to para-troop it in CM, or transport 1 inf in NCM. Any territory can be choosen as the destination, as long as it is range-permitting.
Because you didn’t mention any other restriction, the interpretation implies the following few points are valid.
1.) Para-trooping Airborne units behind enemy line in CM.
2.) Transporting infantry to friendly (regardless newly captured or not) territory behind enemy line in NCM.
3.) Airborne unit / transported Infantry can be picking up and drop by the bomber in-flight. the bomber unit doesn’t have to start with them in the same territory, nor to end with them in the same territory.
4.) Para-trooping is subject to AA fire, just like any other aircrafts. after the AA fire, any survive Airborne units lands and bomber resume the normal combat role immediately.
I believe these points will be in FAQ anyway. hmmm… again, it’s my interpretation only. If it is not what you intended, amendment to Rule II.5c is suggested.
I think the most likely challenge would be disallowing the transportation of infantry to newly captured territory. the logic : one need to setup air field in new territory before the transportation, which is the reason for disallowing aircraft to land on new territory. However again and again, I leave the judgment to you.
Also, in setup-chart, I see the only German’s Airborne, UK’s Commando and US’s Airborne are related to Para-trooping. Thus, only these few countries are capable of para-trooping in CM. Right?
again, again and again… thanks for the good work. 1939 is nice idea and huge task.
