Is going through Spain the only way that the Axis can attack Gibraltar? Is it possible to do an airborn assault on Gibraltar?

Thanks,

Bill

From what I recall, an airborne assault from Morocco is indeed possible, but the likelihood of success totally depends on what your opponent is defending with. Between Gibraltar being a fortress, and the bonus vs. airborne, you can expect the defenders to dish out massive damage. And if the assault fails, your expensive airborne are eliminated (along with the 5 WERPs you paid for the special action). So unless you know for sure that there is only a cadre opposing you, your chance of success is minimal without ground infantry support via Spain.

Note also that there is no invasion site at Gibraltar: airborne drops and spain are the only ways to access.
