No.

Super Subs only lose their sneak attack ability (sort of) if an enemy DST is present.  They still fire first, their opponent just gets to fire back.

The only CHANGE with Super Subs over regular subs is that they attack on 3 instead of 2, they are otherwise the same as (includign all abilities and limitations) regular SUBs.

thanks ncscswitch for clearing that up, what about my second question with the optional superfortress rule, can the fighter take the hit for the bomber in my above post?

In revised, FIGs and BOMs are targetted serperately by AA fire.

So in your example, 2 dice would be rolled on the FIGs, 1 on the BOM.  If the one for the BOM hits, you lose the BOM and can;t choose FIGs instead.

No.  Still only 1.  Otherwise Superfortress would be a DISadvantage not an ADvantage

Only the Superfortress itself rolls more than 1 die...

LHTR 1.3 page 29 of 29:

Quote
6. Superfortresses
THE B-29 SUPERFORTRESS FLEW HIGHER THAN ANY OTHER PLANE
IN THE U.S. ARSENAL.
The defender rolls two antiaircraft guns for
each superfortress. The total of 2 die must
add to 3 or less to shoot the superfortress
down in the opening fire step.

Normal AA fire has a 1 in 6 chance of hitting.
Superfortress AA fire has a 3 in 36 chance (1 in 12) of hitting.  So it's still an advantage.

OK, USA flies 2 FIG, 1 BOM over Germany as part of a land/sea/air operation against Berlin.  They have Superfortresses.

As per game rules, the first step is "conduct opening fire", in this case that will include AA fire against the incoming US aircraft.
Versus the 2 FIGs 2 dice are rolled.  Any 1's rolled mean a FIG shot down
Versus the Superfortress 2 dice are rolled.  If the total of those two dice is 3 or less, the superfortress is shot down.

Combat proceeds as normal.

Again in Revised, it is NOT the choice of the attacker what type of aircraft are lost to AA fire.  The FIGs and BOMs are targetted SEPERATELY.  So any hits that are rolled against the FIGs are taken by the FIGs, and any hits rollled against the BOMs are taken by the BOMs and cannot be taken on FIGs

In standard tournament play what determines victory?  Minor, Major, or Total Victory according to VC's, or is there another way to determine the winner?

Speaking ONLY for Axis and Allies dot ORG Tournaments...

Our victory conditions are:
9 VC (at the end of the USA move) or Surrender.

The same is also true for our League.

That seems low, but the difference between 9 and 10 VCs could take several turns.  What is the average game length in terms or turns?

 shocked
 I've played over 80 online revised games in the past year, and games at 9 VC win can take from 6 to 16 turns, ( with a standard bid of 9 IPC for the Axis).
   My game results are about 52% wins with the Axis being victorious slightly more than my allies. In the game ladder I play in we play two games per opponent, one as the allies and the other game as the axis.
