After replaying it on slow speed, it appears that they are using dice as aircraft range markers and bomb damage. I hadn’t thought of using dice for range markers but it makes sense. More practical than using cardboard chits.
Axis and Allies 1942 Second Edition vs the Original Game (1989)

I haven’t touched the original game in over 20 years. I went out and bought the second edition. It truly is an amazing game. the second edition has added depth that does not take away from the sheer fun. Currently, we have played 10 games. In every game, the Axis wins. I know the game must be balanced. After all, it is play tested. However, as I look at the math involved with the game, it seems a good Axis player will win almost every time using the current official rules.
It’s not always needed but if that is the outcome of your group games I would set up a allied bid system it could help
