In Axis and Allies Pacific, What constitutes an adjoined sea space for a scramble? Sea space in square contains the fighters or all sea spaces that touch that square?

1 Answer 1


Up to three fighters/tactical bombers can be scrambled into each sea zone adjacent to a territory that contains a functional airbase. Any aircraft that are used in this way cannot be used for any further combat operations for the remainder of the round. You may select units to be scrambled after the attacking player has finished all of his combat moves and you may do so any time the appropriate sea zone in attacked by either air or sea units and that included defending the territory against amphibious assaults. An example is sea zone 109 and 110 are adjacent to United Kingdom territory.

  • What about planes on an aircraft carrier? Can they scramble to defend all of the spaces touching their space, or only the space that the carrier is in? Commented Nov 25, 2016 at 7:03
  • @PaulMarshall That should be asked as a separate question, not as a comment on an answer. Commented Oct 26, 2017 at 16:57
