Balanced Mode rules.
Not related to me.
A long time ago, I said the same about BM SBR.
Was too much a swing toward defender.
Even 1942.2 SBR is better, if StB gets first strike.
And much better if Fg is keeping A2 D2, because for 4 StBs, 5 Fgs are needed to reach break even point (0.81 ratio, exactly).
OOB break even point for damage is near 1 StB for 2 Fgs. (0.53 ratio, exactly)
BM break even point is more like 6 StBs vs 5 Fgs. (1.16 ratio, exactly)
1942.2 style with D6+2 dmg is near 1 StB vs 1 Fg (0.95 ratio, exactly)
I suggested to make TcB A2 like Fighter to swing slightly toward attacker.
So, StB remains A1 and TcB A2 but Fg A2 D2.
Only Fighter can intercept per OOB rules.
So, TcB and Fg will be used as fodder during dogfight while StB continue toward IC.
At least, in that case TcBs will still fall like flies.
(As it happened over England.)
