Just want to be sure you are aware that Strategic Ground Transport, which uses no ASP's, may start in a non-port hex, but must end in a friendly port hex. This means that moving the two units to Madang and Gasmata used all of your ASP's (you lost one for the sub hit, and 1/2 of remaining for ISR). Do you want to stick with this move?

Donít show me your cards this turn. That way I can tell you what Iím thinking, and you can see the level of paranoia.
I took my replacement, it was just the two ground that built the new Army Corps to full strength.
You have the option of going first if your FOQ Card is a military Event, otherwise iíll Go first as the subs hit and I have more cards.

Over to you for R&R...
120 8/14/2019 2:22:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Larry, the Army doesn't flip. Ground units can only be attacked by A/N is there were no enemy A/N in the hex.
So you just lose the reduced APD, or whatever that was...
You have Kunming correct. It is a supply source under certain conditions (see Burma Road and HUMP), but you still need an activation path from an in supply HQ to actually move the units.
Will do my PBM and end of turn...
119 8/14/2019 1:55:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Japanese Message please explain to me how Kumming works as a supply source...it's very confusing in the rules...it seems to say that if a unit can trace supply from Kumming, like a supply eligible port, and doesn't need a HQ for supply...just for activation...?!?! Thanks

112 8/12/2019 9:16:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Larry, as this attack was limited to air units outside the battle hex, you would need an air capable unit to inflict any damage. So Kamikaze flips, and I'll PBM.
