This would only be possible if the attacker has declared war on the the defender(s) during the current turn, as transports may not normally be loaded in a hostile sea zone.waxfingers wrote:I have another retreat question.
The situation is land units are boarded onto transports bridging an amphibious assault (so no movement of the transports) and there is a sea battle.
Note also that "bridging" can't be done using an ally's transport. You must load and offload on different turns.
The amphibious assault may not proceed. In your example, the transport doesn't have to retreat, as it was not involved in the battle (being German).waxfingers wrote:For example: it is Italy's turn; there is a Russian destroyer in z100 and Italy is assaulting a Russian territory from a German transport with the aid of a fighter to kill the destroyer. The fighter dies, however, so the destroyer thwarts the invasion.
Is the amphibious assault just called off and the transport 'retreats' within the same sea zone?
If an Italian transport were being used, it could not retreat unless it had moved out of the sea zone and then back in to establish a retreat route. If it had not done so, it would be unable to retreat and would be destroyed.
They cannot.waxfingers wrote:Also the units cannot be unloaded during non combat movement, or could they be?
