61.1 DETERMINING CHINESE SURRENDER:
61.11 CHINA NEVER SURRENDERS: Nationalist China never formally surrenders, but the Nationalist Chinese government can disintegrate under Japanese pressure. At the end of each Chinese player turn, the Chinese Resistance Table is consulted. The result applies from the beginning of the next Japanese player turn and until the end of the next Chinese player turn, when another determination of the Chinese resistance level is made.

Chinese Resistance Table - 61.11

-1

For every three unbuilt Nationalist Chinese ground factors, (0-2 factors: no effect; 3-5 factors; -1; 6-8 factors: -2; and so on).

-1

If ten or more Wang infantry factors are in China.

-1

If China did not achieve at least three steps of Storm Over Asia Burma Road research or the Burma Road is closed.

-1

Japanese or Communist control of each of Peking, Shanghai, Nanking, Canton and Chungking (-1 for each city).

+1

For every ten ground and air factors in the Nationalist Chinese force pool, including unbuilt units (round up).

+1

For every five British, American or Russian ground/air factors in Nationalist China, Communist China or Manchuria.

+1

China achieved a second Storm Over Asia China Lobby result.

+1

If Communist China does not control any Chinese regions.

Results

-3

0

No effect.

+1

Nationalist Chinese units operating outside China are not subject to a -1 DM.

+2

All restrictions on Nationalist-Communist cooperation are lifted.

+3

Explanation: Check at the end of each Chinese player turn and implement the result. Results are cumulative - each result includes all lesser results on its side of a "0" result.



61.2 MODIFIERS:
61.21 UNBUILT UNITS: Unbuilt partisans do not affect Chinese resistance levels.
61.22 AIR FACTORS IN CHINA:
A. British, American and Russian air factors in China must be uninverted in a fully supplied, operational air base to modify Chinese resistance.
B. The Flying Tigers do not count as American air factors.

61.3 FORCE POOL EFFECTS:
61.31 NATIONALIST DEFECTIONS: If the Chinese resistance level is less than zero at the end of an Allied player turn, one unbuilt Chinese replacement or infantry factor is considered to have defected and is removed play for each negative Chinese resistance level, to a maximum loss of three factors per turn (Chinese resistance -1: 1 factor; Chinese resistance -2: 2 factors; Chinese resistance -3: 3 factors), and a maximum reduction of Nationalist China’s ground unit force level to 15 ground factors, plus the four infantry factors added in 1940 and 1941. China does not remove units if the Chinese resistance level is zero or higher or if it does not have unbuilt units.
A. UNITS REMOVED:
B. SOURCE OF REMOVED UNITS: Only unbuilt units are removed. The number of factors removed is limited to the number of unbuilt Chinese units at the end of the turn.
C. WANG FORCE POOL INCREASES:
61.32 SUBSEQUENT TURNS:
A. DEFECTORS NOT COUNTED WHEN CALCULATING THE CHINESE RESISTANCE LEVEL: Nationalist units that have defected are not considered to be unbuilt when calculating the Chinese resistance level in subsequent turns.
B. CHINESE RESISTANCE INCREASES: If the Chinese resistance level is positive at the end of a subsequent game turn, the 61.31 process is reversed – Wang units defect and China’s force pool is increased. This may not result in China’s force pool exceeding its original size.

61.4 OTHER EFFECTS:
61.41 REFERENCE: Details as to the specific application of other Chinese resistance results are found in rules 78-80.
