However, the rulebook is unclear as to any conditions that may prevent Chinese forces from entering those territories. The specific question asked was, "Can I land the Chinese fighter in Burma even though the UK is not at war with Japan?" My assumption is yes, since that would be historically accurate. And that's how we played it (because you can debate the rules or play the game, but it's very hard to do both at the same time).
However, rereading the rules gives no further insight on the question. The rulebook is mute on the question of whether or not Chinese forces may enter UK territory when the UK is not at war with Japan.
Historically the Flying Tigers did operate sometimes out of Burma. However, history does not always drive the rules in the game, and frankly I think it wouldn't be unreasonable for the UK allowing that fighter to land there to be considered an act of war.
So, please to provide an official ruling.
