I'm about to send some airgroups direct from Eastern USA to Cape Town (flying offmap, not packed on a boat) and I got paranoid.

Anyone know off the top of their head how long it will take them to get there?

I tried sending em and checking the reinforcements list but couldn't find em in it.

-Thanks

I think it is 36-38 days.

The number of days should be listed on the screen where you select where to transfer the unit to. You should see something like ...

Capetown - 38d

In DaBigBabes A, this off-map move without ships takes 44 days. Seems this automatic move uses invisible ships that move 2 hexes per phase (4 per day), which would be slow 10 knots ships.

Now, there should be a handful (4-5 ships) of fast Allied xAPs that make 5 hexes per phase (10 hexes per day). Using them for the EC - Cape Town route should cut the travel time to just 17 days (manual p.99 says the distance between EC and Cape Town is 170 hexes).
