BMRs are better used as part of a INF/ARM/FTR land attack…especislly where there are no AAGs. However, as stated previously, the Allies can afford to lose BMRs in more SBR scenarios than the Axis(BUT, a combined Axis SBR bombing of Russia is ideal!)
New scenarios for classic and 2nd edition
(title) are here (and more) http://axisandallies.wikia.com/wiki/Nato_vs_Warsaw_Pact
Some interesting scenarios and house rules: http://axisandallies.wikia.com/wiki/Flowers-House_Rules
I like different scenarios, might try one if I can find time and players. Have a game coming up, but I think its only going to be normal rules due to the people there.
Maybe its on your site and I missed it, but one alternative I have used when there are six players (rather than opening two boards for two simultaneous games) is to split the USA down the middle. Take the Eastern USA as one player with everything east of mid-North America, Western USA with everything east. The Western USA forces can be identified with a marker. The order of play would be USSR, Germany, UK, Japan, USE, USW. All other items stay the same.
