House rules for using new pieces from Axis and Allies 1942 and 1941:
Note: These rules are for global 1940 and 1942 2nd edition
I did not place restrictions on building these units, however, while neutral USA and USSR cannot build these types.
Heavy Artillery: These are a 3-2-1-5 unit and have a special feature. If they roll a one result in combat, the defender must select an air or non-infantry land unit as a combat loss.
Heavy Tanks: These are a 4-4-1(2)-8 unit and can blitz like other tanks. In all other respects these perform as tanks. In combat however, they only move 1 space and 2 in non combat movement.
Battle-cruisers: These are 3-3-2-16 units and like Battleships they take two hits. They also bombard at 3.
Super Carriers: These are 2-3-18 units that carry 3 planes. They also take two hits, but the first hit does not affect their ability to launch or land fighters.
Destroyer Escorts: These are specialized units to protect convoys. They have a movement of 3 spaces normally, or 4 if leaving a naval base. These are 1-2-3-10 units and have the same abilities as a destroyer, except for every Destroyer Escort you have, one transport defends at 1. So basically it works like artillery but for Transports.
Heavy Transport: These perform just like Transports, except they carry three Infantry or two armor type units. These are 0-0-2-12 units.
Advanced Submarine Design: These are 2-1-2-8 units and have special abilities. They can avoid combat with destroyers or destroyer escorts at a 1:1 basis. If you got for example 2 of these subs and you enter a sea zone with 1 destroyer escort or destroyer, they can avoid combat and pass thru into the next sea zone. If for example you have 2 of these units and get attacked by at least 3 destroyers, combat is performed in the normal fashion. If at any time the destroyer count is equal to the submarine count, the advanced submarines can submerge immediately.
Medium Bomber: These are 3-1-6-9 units and have a number of new features. They can perform SBR like any other Bomber, but are the only units that can pick up Paratroopers.
Advanced Fighter design: These are 4-4-4-14 units. The key feature is their ability to be used somewhat differently in SBR. In these actions they get a +1 in combat as escorts or as interceptors.
