Re: Alpha +3

Yay for the endless SBR debate. Just one thought on it--wouldn't it be easier to adjust the escort and interceptor attack numbers so all the planes could have a normal round of combat at those values instead of the extra step where interceptors are removed? Arbitrary numbers here--interceptors fire ...

Re: Official Rules Clarifications

Japan declares war on the UK. Does the US enter the war immediately, or do they wait until their turn to declare? I've been playing that they enter immediately, I think based on the first paragraph of the Pacific political situation rules, but now reading over it again, it's really not clear. Could ...

Re: Alpha +3

Thank you for the NO changes, Larry. That's much better. The UK bomber is great, aside from the fact that Italy will probably suffer even more because of it. Just move Italy before UK Let me get right on that :roll: in the turn order and rearrange the Med deployments and it will all work out. :lol:

Re: Shuffle Italian Units

Very interesting. It totally works with the setup I made. Don't know how it would affect balance, but it sure looks fun. If Italy goes first, they could activate Iraq for some quick panic in the Middle East, or make a play for Madagascar. If UK goes first, they are sunk. :lol:

Re: Shuffle Italian Units

Re: Shuffle Italian Units

Reading up on fleet positions, the UK fleet was pulled back far enough so it didn't have to worry about Italian air strikes, and they made sure to block the Italians. So my setup does seem to basically fit historically. Maybe add the Italian Red Sea flotilla represented by a destroyer to SZ 76 to di...
