« on: October 29, 2016, 09:06:01 PM »
Hello guys,

let's figure out or ask Mark :-) 

What's actually new in the 2016 Rulebook (Dropbox)


What i found is

- ZoC: Naval over Air
- Modified V1 / V2 rules
- Modified Rules for rerolls for Russia & Britain
- No more replenishment ships?
- Only Paratrooper & Mountain Inf can use Transport planes?

Anything else new?

We were seeing too much flexibility for transport planes to move all infantry.  Historically, mountain units and para units had lighter equipment (pack artillery) and were the ones that were often air transported (not regular divisions with their heavier artillery and other heavier auxilery units).  for example, the Germans planned air landed a mountain division in Crete once the paratroopers secured the airfields. . .So, historically, it makes sense to limit this to mountain and para units  - and it also limits the flexibility of transport planes.
