Choose a Japanese occupied coastal hex. Up to 3 Japanese ground units in the chose hex and all adjacent hexes (that do not have to be coastal hexes) may conduct strategic naval movement (with no amphibious shipping points required) from these hexes to any single friendly port hex. No battles may be initiated. The move is unaffected by Allied air ZOI, however all other conditions for a strategic naval move apply.

163 5/12/2020 8:23:00 AM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Hi Phillipe, regarding Chandra Bose, the card says that the ground unit receiving the replacement must be within 3 hexes of rangoon. I interpret that to mean an existing ground unit, since an eliminated unit would be in the dead pile.

It's still a very good question, I will forward to Mark and get his opinion/ruling.

I'll check the file and put my reinforcements.

We will not hit Nagato.
