Gents -

In the manual, page 128:

6.3.3.3.2.1 Over The Beach

>> Special Japanese early war bonus of 1200 for all AP / AK and xAP / xAK types.


Just to be sure - this bonus does not include xAKL's?

Thought I better ask the Big Boys... <grin>

Edit - did a search, but not conclusive.

Thank You all in advance. What an awesome game.

Mac

Would it make a big difference? AKLs have low troop capacity (below 200); therefore unless you are building AKL-only TFs, it shouldn't be a major problem; same deal for APDs; how long will it take to unload 1/2 of a coy without the bonus? maybe an additional day?

Only one I can see a big impact is AMC; these have relatively big cargo capacity and if they are not included in the bonus, then it might take a long time to disembark

just my thoughts,

I am almost sure AKLs and AMCs also have the unload bonus.

Grafin Zeppelin -

Thank You for your answer. I have searched the forum, and found one "yes" for the bonus and another that said "no bonus for xAKL's" It seems most logical that the bonus would apply to all of the merchant variants. Grafin Zeppelin - I did not think to include the AMC in this calculation. I suspect you are correct.

Jorge - good line of thought; I am standardizing each of my invasion task forces with one type of ship - or at least matching speed; hope to optimize and be more efficient.

Thank You again for your help -

Mac

By the way, I tried many invasions with AMCs and AKLs and I haven't seen any issues at all compared to xAP/ xAKs.

They unloaded all troops in one turn

Never seen an issue with differing ships during the Invasion Bonus.

That is because the unloading rate bonus for Japanese ships is so large during the bonus period.

Alfred, John 3rd and All -

The Early War bonus does indeed apply to all classes (i.e. xAKL) of Japanese shipping. I mistakenly thought that xAKL's were not included.

Thank you for your input!

And:

Always great to hear form the two of the forum Heavy Hitters... <grin>

Mac

John 3rd -

I am but a guppy amid the Sharks and Eels...
