187 12/19/2022 6:33:00 AM Sep-Dec 1942 Allies Message Thank you very much for pointing that out!

I carefully reread that section of the rules to make sure I have it correct. Even though the ground attack on the unoccupied space occurred with in a JP AZOI, there was no Amphibious Assault so there is no chance for a Special Reaction and no chance for either side to create a battle hex in Gasmata.

If it is ok with you, I would like to redo part of my move since I sent several other units to cover the attack. I will take a look and make an adjustment to the move.
186 12/18/2022 4:24:00 PM Sep-Dec 1942 Japanese Message When entering an empty enemy hex by ground only, you are not subject to the creation of a battle hex via the Special Reaction process. As such, Gasmata is not a battle hex and is conquered.

Unless you want to choose other battle hexes for your units, you can do your PBM.
