Not clear on how to use war ships Sat, 04 January 2014 20:45
I started playing Iwo Jima landings online and there are it looks like destroyers and air craft carrier. However the instructions in the Pacific Manual and the FAQ card about it online do not mention how to use them. What cards activate these vessels? How are you suppose to use an air assault card with the air craft carrier? I can't get these squares to do anything.

The forum search did not help either.

Would someone be kind enough to explain how to use them, with what cards?

thanks!

Destroyers move 2 hexes and battle, on Ocean hexes only.

They battle like Big Guns: 3-3-2-2-1-1-1-1, and you put a target on a unit that they hit to roll an extra die until either unit moves.

Destroyers are ordered as ordinary units. They are not ordered by Artillery Bombard.

They're hit only by grenades, and they can ignore 1 flag. It takes 3 hits to sink one.

Aircraft Carriers are only useful if you're playing with Air rules. Planes can take off from, or land on, a Carrier. They have no attacking capabilities of their own.

Ordering them and attacking them are the same as Destroyers.

The key question I have is 'HOW' do you select the vessels? I'm playing online and cannot do so with any cards. What are the steps to make this happen and to use also the aircraft carrier?

thanks! Razz

I've included a picture of the problem, I select 'All' center card, the ship is not selected...how do I select and use it?

You can't use them in M44 online, they are not in the coding

Ah, ok, thanks. This should be explained or removed from the maps then.

Ah, I didn't realize you were trying to use them in Memoir Online. For that, van Voort is abaolutely correct.

The same holds true of certain terrain types that exist, but haven't been coded for Memoir Online. For example, you think your on a Hill With Road, but it gets treated asopen ground: Doesn't block LOS, no "plateau effect, and no road movement bonus.
