Convoying another countries army?

Hi!

New player here, me and another new player are teaming up in a game and are wondering if one country can use a fleet to convoy the army of another country. Could someone confirm whether or not this is allowed?

Flare,

Yes. It is allowed. All fleets involved simply write the convoy order 'Fleet convoy army from [origin] to [destination]'.
As long as the chain is not broken, and each side submitted the order correctly, it doesn't matter who owns the units involved for convoys.

And the army has to order to the land space its going...so like A LON - NA...F ENC convoy A LON-NA and A MAO convoy A LON-NA

Not entirely correct. You must ensure that when you order the army to its destination that it specifically says by convoy. This is not necessary when you're convoying your own units, but it is necessary when another power is convoying you.

I think that's only necessary if you are going adjacent. So that you can't get convoyed against your will. But if you are going to NA from LON...obviously a convoy is in play

To reiterate and reaffirm asu's point, the via convoy option (as opposed to via land route) is
ONLY applicable for adjacent province convoys (that is, using a convoy when an army could have move their directly)
AND the convoy is provided by a foreign fleet

In any other circumstance, the via convoy/land route has no effect at all.
