-Though a related question, does a tank attempting to move two spaces have to stop after the first movement if it goes into a friendly territory that contains a zombie?
No. A territory controlled by you or an ally is still friendly, even if it contains zombies. Remember, a tank move through a friendly territory is not a blitz - it’s simply a two-space move.
I understand in an attack against a player controlled territory that contains zombies you can end combat and claim control as soon as the (living) defenders are dead.
What about attacking a zombie only controlled territory?ï¿½ ï¿½ ï¿½ ï¿½ I assume you have to clear out the zombies before claiming said territory and getting the liberation bonus.ï¿½ ï¿½ Though I can’t find an explicit reference in the rules though supporting that over,say, walking into a zombie only territory and claiming it without fighting.
A surviving land unit is enough to take control of the territory.
If you win a combat in a territory that is controlled by an enemy power or by zombies,
and you have one or more surviving land units there, you take control of (capture) it,
even if there are zombies remaining in the territory.)
However, you would have to fight one round of combat and have at least one land unit survive in order to gain control of the territory.
