Thanks, that's what I thought. My opponent wants to Intercept in the invasion hex--From Britain. I am not seeing it, but don't want to seem a bully or obstinant. Anyone think the Brits can Intercept in D35?
No they can not make a naval interception from British ports into the Baltic. All interceptions from the German naval path from Kiel through the Baltic to D35 must come from Eastern front based naval units. So only at war USSR fleets in Leningrad could intercept this invasion.
However British air units could conceivably, if based in The Hague or Bergen, intercept the fleet at along the path.
The key to the rule is the 15 BRPs for the offensive must be for the Western Front. The Eastern front may have a Pass or Attrition option, and the rules normally prohibiting offense naval and air action do not apply because it is the target hex that receives the action.
Your opponent might be confused because an invasion of Gibraltar, which is a two front port may be intercepted by fleets from both fronts at Gibraltar as per Gamer's Guide FAQ answer 29.52. Your situation requiers the British fleets to cross a frontal boundary to get to an interception hex and it mat not.
