Given that Japan doesn’t have a lot of transports, please explain how it is taken back on J1 with at least one Cruiser in the area for the Brits. If there is combined effort for a KJF, this would seem like a good opening strategy.
I was thinking more of a mutual destruction scenario, but even with a cruiser left in the see zone, Japan should be able to take it back if they want. They have a destroyer, 2 fighters, a bomber + an infantry and artillery to clear the sea and island. Of course this will significantly weaken a J1 attack on the US fleet and draw 2 pieces off of mainland asia. So, maybe it is worthwhile in a full KJF.
I hear ya about the shuck/shuck. I’m looking for some interesting option for the allies. We finally had a allies win on this game in our last game and I hope to do a successful KJF soon. It seems that the Aussie transport as well as the Aussie infantry never really get into the game. So, I’m really trying to figure out something to do with them.
