So latest patch 4.2.2 states fixed a problem placing CBV on Map
I Have been able to build the Japanese Nanking and 3 French CBV. The Nanking Mil was able to be placed on the map next Reinforcement Phase, so all good there.
I suspect that the 3 French CBV being available is a bug. I think they should only be available after Free France is created. I think Paul comfirmed it in this thread. https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4959972
Not sure on how to handle this.
I have read the thread and unit descriptions, some would be Vichy units, some not, so Vichy Creation would be the catalyst, not necessarily Free France.
I am not sure how to handle this either, I was hoping there would be a fix before this point. The choice is simple, either the file is edited or we "turn off" this optional. If it is not working for one power, it's not balanced to have it working for others.
I think the French CBV counters are actually Free French units, and not French. Hence they can only be Free French. Never Vichy French. But I asked to make sure.
Edit: Unit descriptions has nothing at all to do with the actual units. It is just an attempt to give some historical flavour.
Cut from RAC:
22.4.8 City based volunteers
[Clarification. The Free French city based volunteers are available to Free France if it exists. If Free France does
not exist (for any reason) but France itself exists after having been completely or incompletely conquered, then these
CBV units are available to France - May 11, 2007.]
