The Ottoman Empire's railroad grid was less developed than the South's during the American Civil War. Britain, Germany, Belgium and France had Europe's most extensive railroad grids. Yet the game treats these countries as all the same for Strategic Relocation purposes.
VARIANT: I would recommend using this variant with my Italian Problem variant posted earlier, as this one favors the CP, while the Italian Problem variant favors the Entente.
Ottoman Empire: Each nationality (Turkish, Russian, British-Australian) may move no more than one corps by SR to or from an Ottoman Empire or Persian square on the NE Map, MEF hexes included. Entente movement to/from Alexandria and Port Said, Egypt is not so limited.
Austria-Hungary may SR an army for 3 SR points, as long as all movement is within Austria-Hungary.
Germany and France, when moving between squares in their respective home countries, can SR an army for 2 SR points, and can SR two corps for 1 SR point. The Reserves Box is treated as part of the "home country" of Germany and France for SR movement.
To reflect the progressive repair of occupied railroad grid, beginning Winter 1915, France and Germany can treat captured Belgian, French and German squares as part of their home country railroad grid for SR purposes.
If Germany plays "Guns of August" on its first Action Phase, it can treat captured Belgian and French squares as German home railroad grid beginning September 1914.
Beginning Summer 1915, Germany can treat Austro-Hungarian squares as German for purposes of SR movement.
Also beginning Summer 1915, if "Oberost" has been played, Germany may treat Russian squares as German for SR purposes if the squares are within three squares of a German square.
