- Land techs-
Artillery is a new unit. It is a 2/2 unit with a movement of 1. Artillery also improves the attack factor of coordinating Infantry by 1. Cost is 4Ipcs.
Mechanized Infantry is a new Unit. This is a 2/2 unit with a movement of 2. Mechanized Infantry also have the ability to blitz in the manor of armor. Cost is 4 Ipcs.
Heavy Armor is a new unit. Heavy armor is a 4/3 unit. The cost is 8Ipc and no more than 20% rounded up, of a countries armor can be of this type.
Shock Troop is a new unit. Shock troop is a 2/2 unit with a movement of 1. The cost is 4Ipc and no more than 10% rounded up, of a countries Infantry can be of this type.
Paratroop is a new Unit. Paratroop is a 1/ 2 Unit with a movement of 1. Paratroops can be dropped by air transports. When dropping into combat paratroops fight at 2/2. Cost is 4 Ipcs.
Marine is a new unit. Marine is a 1/ 2 unit with a movement of 1. Marines attack value is in creased by 1 during amphibious attacks. Cost is 4Ipcs.
- Sea Techs
Armored Aircraft Carriers makes Carriers two hit units.
Torpedo bombers increase the attack value of Carrier launched fighters who are attacking ships to 4.
Heavy Transports increases the load of transports to 3 Infantry or 1 Infantry and 1 Armor.
Improved submarines increases the attack value of Submarines to 3. Aircraft may not attack improved submarines with out naval support.
Dreadnaughts give Battleships a second attack per round of combat.
Naval bombers increase the attack value of Carrier launched fighters that are attacking ground units to 4.
- Air Techs
Heavy bombers give bombers a second attack per round of combat.
Long range Aircraft increases the movement of air units by 2
Air Transport is a new unit. Air transport is a 0/1 unit with a movement of 6. The cost is 8Ipcs and air transports can carry 1 Infantry or 1 artillery unit.
Rockets allow Anti Air Units to fire a rocket up to 3 spaces for an industrial raid. This attack may only be used once per turn.
Fighter Bombers increases the attack value of fighters to 4 when attacking ground units only. (No Air)
Jet Fighters Increases the defense value of fighters to 5.
- Industrial Techs
Improved Research decreases the cost of R&D by 2Ipcs.
Conscription allows troops to be built in any territory with a value of 2 or more in an amount less than or equal to the value of the territory.
Assembly line reduces the cost of mechanized units by 1 and air units by 2.
Improved naval yards decreased the cost of transports and subs by 2 and Carriers and Battleships by 4
Streamlined training decreases the cost of infantry to 2.5Ipcs rounded up.
Canned Factories allows factories to be moved 1 territory per turn. On the turn the factory is moved it may not produce units. Cost of new factories is reduced to 12Ipcs
One attempt may be made at R&D per turn at a cost of 5Ipcs. Research is directed into one of the 4 categories on a roll of 6 the research succeeds and another die is rolled to determine the research attained.
When a technology is obtained it may be sought directly by any other player at a cost of 5Ipc. This attempt applies to the 1 attempt per turn rule.
America and Britain may acquire technology directly form one another for a 5IPC fee which is paid to the bank to represent retooling. Germany and Japan may share tech in the same manner.
