Beachhead, in Imperialism and Imperialism 2, is a fleet up against an enemy coastline preparing to help an invasion by army units that can be teleported from any province containing a port on the turn after the beachhead is initiated, or any subsequent turn if the province has not been captured and the fleet has not been moved away or sunk.
