Difference from revised?


  • 2007 AAR League

    ok quick check of mape etc, seems to me this is revised with new units and new naval rules correct?

    Pretty much. There are a few differences in the map, mainly in North America. There are also differences in

    • Strategic bombing (it now causes damage to the IC instead of simply removing IPCs)
    • AA Guns only fire during combat (no more firing when a plane overflys it)
    • Fighter escorts during bombing is optional.
    • No technology
    • During amphibious assault only 1 ship (Battleships and Cruisers) per unit landed can conduct bombardment.

    And finally most players seem to consider that it is balanced and a bid is not required.

    For me, this the thing. I really belive the V4 is definitive AAA just because the fact it really is balanced.

    • Units killed by an amphibious assault get to return fire


    • Nine cities to win - no major/minor/total.

    • Bombers cost 12IPCs.  CVs cost 14; less than in AA50.

    • No National Advantages.

    • Overland units may retreat from amphibious assault.

    • Central US touches sz10.

    AA42 is the fifth version.  Global 1940 might yet be balanced too!

    Same cost as AA50, not less.  AA1942 uses the exact same units/cost/and rules as AA50, but eliminated NOs and tech.

    As for additional differences, don’t forget that the Bering Strait got iced over and it’s no longer possible to Polar Express Canada straight from Japan
