for japan, we just need 1 gallon. he start from korea with unit prefilled , drop they to the promised land and can come back in the same turn. the japan fleet can do no arm to him. but i agree, 2 or more is better ^^ start with crossbowmen on a montain I propose get back the cyrus army (he is at war with india) build 1 gallon in korea and a fregate in our other port. I propose not to delay too mutch our small army for south america. america is a race, japan, is already ours (japan played by IA is never a factor in earth 18) we will face lots of samourai but we can catch riflemen and cavelry in not so mutch time. comunism is not a monopoly, i would trade it ASAP.
