19 4/30/2019 7:44:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Argh - never mind, I was continuing from my old file that had the 1941 placements.
18 4/30/2019 7:41:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message Marc - I don't believe you can attack Manila with the 2nd Air Army from Clark Field. A hex only changes control at the conclusion of the battle phase (see 1.3). So landing an amphibious assault there doesn't allow you to use the airfield for this battle.
