Hi - I'm confused about what closes the Burma Rd. The thin red lines are not built yet at beginning of 1942, so how does the allied player trace a strat route to Madras? If it includes a sea leg from rangoon, does capture of Rangoon close the Burma Rd (assuming the special routes haven't been built yet?

Capturing Rangoon, Mandalay or Lashio will certainly cut it as there is then no continuous Allied strat route between Kunming and Rangoon.

Obviously the Japanese want to take Rangoon anyway as it is a port, airfield, and objective hex - if they took that and Mandalay, the Allies could restore the Burma Road by building the Jarhat and Ledo connections and tracing Kunming-Lashio-Myitkyina-Ledo-Jarhat-Dimasur on to Madras.
