So here’s my question, I’ve decided to play a game against the AI as the Japs to try and figure out this economy business so that if I do go PBEM as the Evil Empire, I won’t run out of everything in June of ’42.
My question, for now, boils down to this:
The Japanese start with ~11k AV in Manchuria or so, of which 8k is required to prevent Soviet Activation. That leaves around 3k raw AV in Tanks and Infantry, and a ton of arty, HQ, Eng, etc. troops that could be pulled from Manchuko and/or Korea and sent to China to assist with the defeat of the Chinese.
One of the common HR’s is that you “must pay PP to cross borders”. Does this mean that if I have a unit, in Manchuko, that is subordinate to the Manchuko HQ, I must pay PP to send that unit to China? Likewise, if I have a unit that is subordinate to the 4th Army HQ (for example) in Manchucko, must I pay PP to send that unit into China?
I tend to think that it’s probably ok to send a unit in the 4th Army to China, but not a unit that’s part of the Manchuko HQ to China.
(I’m at work and as such don’t remember the exact names of the HQ’s, but I hope you get the point. If the 4th HQ isn’t in Manchuko, then I’m wrong on the “4th”, but I know there are other “non-Manchuko” HQ’s in Manchuko).
