Yes, and I'm using those troops to stomp Gandhi. About 1/2 of the troops were in Delhi when Delhi got nuked.SG(2) mode] Didn't we already have about 40 units poised on continent 42 to jump across the straights? What we needed was more ships for chains to the French: up from Makrell once we're done with Gandhi, and across from Corinth now that Hyppolyta.
Secondly, this shipchain exists independently of all the other ones. I simply added to our existing merchant marine, rather than diverting ships from elsewhere.
Thirdly, look at the save, and the shipchain I'm constructing up to the French.
I'm not going to bother from Corinth, given that the ships are around 40 squares away, and the task force only about 20 squares. It's just one city out in the middle of nowhere.
