If Persia is invaded by the Russians and they move to Abadan, do they get the resources, even if they don't take Tehran?

If the brits then took Tehran and the Russians still had a unit in Abadan would they still keep the resources?

In middle of game, so quick answer appreciated.

Anyone sitting on resources controls them while they sit on them, regardless of who is in the capital.

The Persian incursion (taking the resources) and invading the Baltic States are standard opening moves for the Soviets in our games.

I've been lucky enough to take Persia in as a Satellite of the USSR in 1936 - all the resources/population and built some red units there right away - all without firing a single shot!

Why invade the baltic states? They have no resources and it just gives your rivals a free card?

Alan,

Are you suggesting that the Persian incursion is the brew that is true? ;-)

Presumably to put a bit more of a buffer in between your capitals and the Germans.

Not quite. The Persian incursion has the flak from Iraq. The Asian invasion is the plan for Japan.

Get it?
