CF activates 7 units

1. Shokaku to 1105 attacks Colombo (A)
2. Akagi to 1108 attacks Colombo (A)
3. (Soryu) to 1609 attacks Colombo (A), note SEAC is OOS now.
4. 5. 6. Hiei, Yamato and Nagato to Colombo (A)
7. 2ad attacks Calcutta

Note that no units crossed active AZOIs.
561 1/14/2019 8:14:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message Yes I was pretty sure they are no enterable by ground units. My doubt was whether your AZOI would fly over them. Mark ruled that no. Therefore the AZOI from Madras only proyects over the coast into 1306 and 1206, and doesnt' fly over India into 1304.
560 1/13/2019 8:51:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message I would assume they are not playable (i.e. you don't have to capture them to start the countdown and I can't sneak into the one north of Dacca to cancel it.

Interesting thought though !
