Flip SEAC air only please - return US air to full strength


212 1/21/2021 8:15:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Oh, right. I suppose that is what happens. I had forgotten about that rule again on the Pre-War Unit Restrictions. Wow, definitely bigger result than I though. At any rate, not trying to rub salt in the wound under the circumstances but I think you were only supposed to flip one of my air units as the result was only 10 hits to AL forces. Which unit shall I flip back?

210 1/19/2021 12:21:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message I believe your ground unit had to retreat back to Rangoon, correct? And then to relieve the subsequent overstacking in Rangoon, if I'm reading the rules correctly I think the air unit gets removed and put on the turn track for 2 turns later. Please check. And then over to you for which of my air units to flip, and for your PBM.
