332 6/26/2022 6:27:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message 7.24 does seem to clarify the HQ question:

Any hex that contains Offensive and
Reaction units(including HQs) must be declared a battle hex
331 6/26/2022 6:26:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message 1303 is not North, it is west on the compass. The map edges do not perfectly align to the compass
330 6/26/2022 6:21:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message 1303 doesn't link to the west edge of the map. It links to the northern edge and that is not an ultimate supply source.

I thought HQ units were treated like regular ground units. But that might be a good one to ask in consim.
329 6/26/2022 6:06:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Still not sure your move is legal. The sea area west of india, hex 1303, is the supply source, all my units are in supply. Also, can you create a battle hex in Calcutta with no units there?
328 6/26/2022 5:42:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message I revised the move and reposted.
327 6/26/2022 5:12:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message ok let me know what ur adjustments are or repost
326 6/26/2022 4:12:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message SEAC can trace to the west edge around the tip of India
325 6/26/2022 4:02:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message What sea path would Seac trace to the map edge? The north edge is not a supply source so they would have to trace to the west/south or east map edge.

I would modify the move to cancel the invasion.
324 6/26/2022 3:56:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Also, a japanese unit can never invade India. Only Northern India can be invaded, Madras and Calcutta can be attacked but never invaded.
323 6/26/2022 3:55:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message the card allows me to move naval units 21 hexes. That let's me put a carrier West of Madras. Another carrier links the ZOIs to Rangoon. I don't see how Seac can trace by sea to the West/South Map edges. The Bomber in colombo has their ZOI neutralized past Colombo.


322 6/26/2022 3:54:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Yea, I looked, SEAC is still in supply. I don't think you can put it OOS as long as I have an air unit in Madras
321 6/26/2022 3:41:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Pretty sure there is no way to put seac OOS at the moment
320 6/26/2022 3:32:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Posted. Check my move. I believe it temporarily places SEAC OOS. If I'm wrong I might have to revise the move a bit.

I thought they got removed if they helped you avoid the sub hit but the end result has to be a modifier 0 or less for it to get removed. (12.21). In this case, it was a modified 1 (5+2-6) so they would stay on map.
