Re: Cheap naval guns

Hi imp
I should have given an example, if you buy a British 14" gun, unit 460 it costs 262 points. If you buy 4 14" guns, battleship, unit 504 that costs 512 points, quite a big discount.

Bug

Hello
Italian armour Units 032, 591 and 712 don't react fire at armour firing at them or travelling past. This is probably because their AP weapon is in slot 4?
