And in my game vs AI, Japan never bothered to take Sandakan in Northern Borneo, which is exactly 21 hexes from Saigon.
So I own a base which triggers Kamikazes? And, do "dot-bases" within the distance trigger Kamikazes as well?
It's 20 Jan 1944 now.
Base must have an AF 1+. This would exclude the 'dot' bases unless they are built up.
There is no limitation such that the base has to have been occupied by the Japanese and re-captured.
If the base is in range (21 sea hexes) of TOKYO (base #252), TAKAO (base #330) or SAIGON (base #435), is not located in China/Tibet and controlled by Allied player and 1944+, then the kamikazes (converting groups to kamikaze mode,as distinct from the occasional plane turning into a kamikaze prior to 1944 due to damage) are activated.
