When certain areas on the map are invaded, additional reinforcements are released to the defending side. For the Allies this may include a reinforcement convoy, which disbands soon after and releases a large number of devices and planes into the pools.

Note that in games against Allied AI reinforcements arrive to mainland bases. E.g. all India reinforcements appear in Karachi, with Karachi-bound division appearing on the next turn after the invasion, while all other units arriving the day after that.
