We are learning this game.
I was looking for clarification on the Inversion rule as it relates to Ambush.
IF a VC elects not to ambush does the US unit simply continue movement? We assumed yes. Yes unless the VC is stacked with a face up ground combat unit of 3 or 4 morale. (which can be a good tactic for the communists)
Units otherwise are only flipped to visible side at end of their reinforcement phase? No, they can be flipped face up in movement (8.5.2.)or if an Allied unit is adjacent to them at the beginning of combat (19.1.2). They can also be flipped in the Communist Ops phase (6.2)
It seems that the US reinforcements come to CORP HQ's which are actually cities, not HQ units or some such. Correct? Correct- one city per corps area. Kind of a nuisance especially in IV Corps if the VC are ambushing the road.
Also if that is the case a simple blue ring around those cities or on map notation would have be a nice addition. True but after two turns you remember where they are (especially since DaNang and Saigon are well known.)
US air goes in unimpeded if their is no SAM unit? There is no AA otherwise? Nope. NVA Divisions, Armor, and Arty also like to shoot stuff at planes. (12.1.1)
Interesting so far.
