338 11/11/2019 4:38:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message I just posted in the forums.
337 11/11/2019 4:29:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message I am not totally sure, but I would say that air units can not eam to the China Box. The China Box rules don't mention the possibility and the emergency move rules also don't mention the China Box, just "airfields".
It would be worth asking in the forums though.

336 11/11/2019 4:04:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Frank, do you know if the AVG unit can emergency air move to the China Box, or is it eliminated?
