Transports can no longer be used as cannon fader. Transports cannot be designated as loses if other types of ships are present.

Transports have no attack capability. However, transports can move up to 2 sea zones and load up to 2 ground units for amphibious assaults and 3 ground units when transporting to friendly territories. Note that armor units count as 2 for loading purposes. For example, a transport may move a sea zone, pick up an armor unit and infantry unit, move another sea zone, then unload onto another friendly territory or island. An amphibious assault occurs when transports unload ground units into enemy territory. A transport’s movement ends when it unloads.
Ground units may not move before loading into or after unloading from transports. During its turn, a transport may only load units from one territory and may only unload units into one territory. Transports may not load from or unload to an enemy-occupied sea zone, unless all enemy naval units have previously retreated/withdrawn from Naval Combat.
now on the topic of retreats:
Attacking ground units in amphibious assaults may evacuate and retreat to their transports; however, each armor and artillery unit must first be converted to an infantry unit. Defending ground units may also retreat onto friendly transports in adjacent sea zones. Again, each armor and artillery unit must be converted to an infantry unit. In both cases, the evacuating transports may not move, but if possible, they may each transport up to three infantry units to an adjacent friendly territory. Ground units in excess of transport capacity may not retreat.
I agree that they are not to be considered able to be used to occupy the sea zone for control purposes. Second when planes attack them alone , they should not have any capacity to "destroy " planes. The defence roll of no highter than "one" with a d10 should apply against ships only . Nothing more horrible than germany losing 20 % of her airforce which often cant be rebuilt by losing planes sinking defenseless tankers and liberty ships.
