- $5 for Germany for each of the following territories the Axis powers control, Lenningrad, Stalingrad, and/or Moscow. However, the the Baltic sea may not contain allied ships.
-$5 for Germany if Axis control London
-$5 for Japan if Axis control all of China’s original territories.

Attacks on any strict neutral territory in one neutral block will turn all other strict neutral territories within that same block, into pro-neutral territories for the other side. The two neutral blocks are: South America, and the rest of the world.
Research & Development
Using this rule, you may attempt to develop improved military technology. If you decide to use Research & Development, it becomes the new phase 1 of the turn sequence, bumping the other phases up a number.
China may not do Research and Development. Research and Development Sequence
1. Buy research dice
2. Roll research dice
3. Roll breakthrough die
4. Mark developments
Step 1: Buy Research Dice
You may purchase a pair of research dice for 6 IPCs, and you may only purchase a maximum of 3 pairs per turn (6 dice).
Step 2: Roll Research Dice
Roll each of your purchased research dice. Success: If you roll at least one 6, Continue to step 3. Failure: If you don’t roll a 6, your research has failed.
Step 3: Roll Breakthrough Die
If your research was successful, choose one of the three breakthrough charts and roll a die to see which technological advance you get.
Step 4. Mark Developments
If your research was successful, place one of your national control markers inside the appropriate advancement box on the Research and Development chart. Your development becomes effective immediately. Any number of powers may develop the same technology, but powers can’t share their technology, and powers may never gain the same technology twice.
Advanced Weapon Chart #1
1- Conscripts & Volunteers
Receive 2 free Infantry units during each purchase new units phase.
All air bases may now scramble up to 4 eligible air units, and interceptors now defend @ 2.
One rocket from each AA Gun may be fired toward an enemy Complex or Facility at least 3 spaces away. During the Conduct Combat phase, roll one dice for each AA Gun to determine damage on each enemy target.
4- Mass Production
Choose land, air, or sea. During each Purchase New Units phase, the cost of all units from that military arm (not including infantry) is decreased by one.
5- Blitzkrieg Tactics
Artillery may now move 2 spaces when combined with a Mechanized Infantry.
6- Convoy Tactics
Transports now defend @1.
Advanced Weapon Chart #2

2- Submarine Tactics
Submarines attack @3 when there are more than one.
3- Super Carrier Decks
The maximum capacity of all Aircraft Carriers is now 3 Fighters and/or Tac, Bombers.
4- Ace Pilot
Receive one free Fighter unit (French blue) and place it on your Capital. That air unit delivers an automatic hit during each combat round when attacking and defending.
5- Armored Hulls
All Battleships now require 3 hits before sinking.
6- Heavy Bombers
All Strategic Bombers receive 2 dice each when attacking.
Advanced Weapon Chart #3
Roll 1 dice and choose that number on any of the three breakthrough charts (may not be a weapon that was already developed by your nation, including Espionage).
2- War Bonds
During each collect income phase, roll 1d6 and collect the amount rolled.
Strategic bombers operating from an air base may load up to 2 infantry each, and drop then into a hostile land territory during the Combat Movement phase. Bombers may be used as a transport or a bomber during the Combat Movement phase (not both).
4- Jet Fighters
All Fighters now attack @4.
Choose one strict neutral territory, this territory immediately becomes a pro-neutral territory for your side.
6- Nuclear Warfare
Receive one free Strategic Bomber containing an A-Bomb (French blue) and place it on your Capital. Deploy it like a Strategic Bomber in order to conduct a SBR on any hostile land territory of your choice. If the bomber survives (SBR rules), a 1d6 is rolled to determine automatic casualties of any removable land or air units within that territory (chosen by defender), and the IPC value of that territory becomes zero for the remainder of the game. Immediately remove the Bomber from the board once it has been used.
