allowed to scramble against subs without a destroyer.



  • I noticed this is the global 1942 Axis and Allies. You are given an option to scramble when the sz is attacked only with subs, without destroyers, resulting in an infinite standoff (especially against the AI)

    Should not be allowed to scramble against subs, without a destroyer.

    Thanks!

    What rules are you referring to? In the Global 1940 2nd edition OOB ruleset there is nothing preventing from scrambling against attacking subs. However the planes cannot hit the subs unless there is a defending destroyer present in that seazone. There isn't a rule that forces the attacking sub(s) to be accompanied by an attacking destroyer, either.

    So while there appears to be no rule issue, an "infinite standoff" should not be the expected result of a battle, as once the combattants have no valid targets left, the battle is over. In my testing scenario TripleA handles this correctly.

    So please specify the scenario that occurred to you and provide a savegame.
    Also: Which TripleA-version are you running?
    Thank you 😃
