isn't it somewhat fair that the Allies are somewhat hamstrung regarding PP early in the war?


Maybe, but the whole point of my topic is how much? I for one could not say.

Not a veteran player, but you get the 6th and 7th Australian divisions as unrestricted units. This was definitely not the case in the real war--but I understand why it is necessary from a gameplay perspective.


That may very well be, but it could have been done for 'play balance'. Let's be real, Japan needs to be reeled in to some degree. As an Allied player I would be reticent to commit these units where there would be heavy action for long. Australia has a rather limited replacement capability and these units could be 'worn' down to such a degree that they could be useless for an extended period.

Historically those units were deployed in the western theater in December 1941. They have to come onto the map somewhere, and historically that was Aden. Also historically Churchill wanted at least a sizeable portion of them deployed to Burma, and the prime minister of Australia insisted they return to Australia for home defense. The reality seems to be that they are the definition of Australia restricted units, but for obvious reasons they can't enter the map from Aden as restricted.
