Pray the Italians were smart enough to SBR the UK’s AB before that happens, otherwise theres a bunch of dead Krauts in the English Channel.Â
That is a good strategy though! Thanks.
So Germany, or in any case any nation would have to defend its own transports with its own fleet. Â Interesting. Â
Reality would indicate that Allied ships could support an amphibious landing by the other nation and would. Â In this case the Germans must of landed down the coast to where the Italians parked their navy to support it and were destroyed by UK fighter who knew exactly where the Germans were landing. Â Larry slipped up there on the rules. Â
Situation: The Italian navy is parked off of Uk in the the straits. It consists of a battleship, carrrier, 2 cruisers and 3 destroyers. UK navy destroyed by Luftwaffe. Germany builds transports, 10, and lauches sealion with only transports to the same SZ as Italians. UK scrambles 3 fighter and….
1) Do the Italians help in the amphibious assualt by defending the transports from a scramble or because the Germans have no fleet all the transports would die?
Alrighty then. Case closed. You can move carriers with any supporting ships when conducting an amphibious assault with the “anticipation” of scrambling.
I reread the scrambing rules and find no mention of this. Unless there was an errata or some clarification from Larry, then moving the carriers is NOT permitted unless it moves them into a combat situation (ie ships present). I guess BB and CR units will go up in stock now.
I disagree. Per the rules of combat movement you can only move pieces that will go into combat. Since you have no way of knowing combat will take place the carriers cannot move. Scrabling happens after ALL combat moves take place.
If scrambling changes this rule, please let me know where because I lost 2 cruisers and 7 transports from this attack!
Soutern Italy is being attacked by US from Gibralter SZ. Italy has no fleet, but has 3 fighters in siuther italy ready to scramble from the AB. US does amphibious assault. They bring 2 cruisers and 7 transports. They have in gibraltor SZ 3 aircraft carriers fully loaded.
Question: can US player move its carriers during Combat Movement to protect the fleet?
