Adopting Wolf's Japanese SNLF rule
« on: September 17, 2015, 07:55:03 AM »
We are going to adopt Wolf's SNLF rules into the standard rules for the Pacific in order to enable the Japanese to expand at the historical speed they need to in Winter 1941 / Spring 1942.  The rule is:

26.9 Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces
Japanese SNLF (Special Naval Landing Forces) troops were trained as paratroopers and as special marine landing forces. The have an attack value of 4 for the first round of combat from an Airborne drop or from an Amphibious Invasion. SNLF units may be transported by Destroyers and Cruisers (one destroyer or druiser may carry one SNLF unit). When carrying an SNLF unit, the Cruiser or destroyer forfeit their surface combat value and their ASW value (but not their AA value).  Destroyers and Cruisers may carry SNLF units strategically or tactically.  When moving tactically (up to 3 spaces) SNLF units may disembark at enemy owned (but not occupied) territories without the use of a landing craft (i.e. unopposed landings).

Great move Mark, I also believe we should adopt his air unit idea, Japan is the only country that doesn't get upgraded aircraft as the war progresses.
