looks like cheap money - or is there a hidden catch later?

Yes, you have to re-pay it later with interest.

Thank you. Do you have to repay the very next year or after several years or is it your choice when to repay?

Let's see if Doom remembers it.

You pay it off in chunks. The chunks may be to high.

Haven't had enough time to test that out.

From the top of my head, you are paying interests yearly and the loan after the amount of time.

Don't worry, just leave it to the IMF to bail you out.

I think that everything is explained i the event.
UK player has got opportunity to sell some bonds (various amount) to get the PP boost, then he has to pay interests and later buy the bonds back.

The question is when is the interest/payments due? Every turn? Once a year?

I'm doubting any government would finance war expenses with maturities of such short dates. For game purposes only interest payments should matter. The principal shouldn't be due for years.

According to the text, the interest is due annually (not sure if this means the end of the calendar year or one year after the purchase date).

I do not recall seeing any maturity date on the bonds (is the full amount due after one, two, three or more years?) I could have overlooked that of course.

It's random. No specific date.

Amount of loan can be 150,200,250 or 300

Interest is 1%

Pay back is in full.

This is why I never liked this event as it did not make sense to pay the loan back in full and the time is random

When does jolly O'l England ever have those type of funds laying around?

Alas like most events it is completely silly. Also has HUGE impact. That said in this game I would take it (alas in PBEM you don't get to choose...) as early money is very important for UK. This event is NOT explained in text unless you would buy a car for $299.99 per month (without knowing how many months...). Yea lets borrow some money without knowing when it will be due and what the interest rate is... LOL.
Practically speaking no war bonds would get paid off until war is expected to be over and even then the govt could without significant negative impact extend the term (perhaps with some promised bonus payment).

Now you got me all scared a bit. A random payback date is indeed a bit unrealistic.

(The interest rate actually increases as you take larger amounts. 1% applies to the smallest principle amount and it goes to 4% for the largest. That is actually ok in my opinion)

Since I use most of my PPs during each turn this will mean the UK will go suddenly into the negative at payback time. But as far as I remember the game does not mind that. You just cannot repair units all of a sudden until you are back in positive territory.

Wasn't it just a little while ago that Britain finally finished paying the US for the Lend Lease?
