What am I missing? Malta

Post by Zemke »

I cannot seem to take Malta. Frankly, I cannot seem to get an amphibious unit to land or a para to drop on Malta. I have spent several turns bombing the island's lone unit, (5-6 at least) and cannot get my 100% ready Paratrooper unit to make a drop or my amphibious unit to land, and land where, on top of the unit is the only thing I can figure, but that is not an option.

I bought this game when it first came out and have recently come back to it, and I remember being able to take Malta in the past, but not I cannot. Can someone please enlighten me?

I like this game, I really do, but I wish the manual was more detailed and specific on how you do certain important things.

You need to land on the beach. Malta has only one. Before invading, do a naval blockade by putting the Italian fleet next to the island (few turns). Then, land on the beach with a good unit. Then, bomb again the island's lone unit. Then, attack.

Forget the paratroopers for Malta. This is not implemented for paratroopers to land directly on the beach. Put them in Greece.
