8.8 INDO-CHINA JAPANESE MILITIA
Each time an Allied unit moves into Indo-China, the Japanese will receive a Japanese
(representing Vietnamese/Vichy French forces) militia division (up to a maximum of 4). Thus if
2 ground units move into Indo-China, and then 1 unit moves from one border hex to another, 3
militia divisions will be formed. These militia divisions will be formed in Hanoi, Haiphong, Luang
Prabang, and Hue in that order, and they will be formed at 1/3 strength.
Indo China is not Thailand, all the information quoted above refers to what we now call Vietnam, as do all the cities mentioned. I gather I was mistaken and all the Thai units are in play from the start. If they are not restricted then I guess with Japanese persuasion they could have been deployed outside their borders.... though that then leaves Thailand open to assault from other means....
As we didn't discuss these units and any house rule we will have to agree how we handle it...
Sorry for bothering folks here.
