I’m just trying to inprove my game,I usually am on the defensive,so,I’m not that good at AAP,I’ve tried every Country and I stink. :|I ROCK in the AAR as Russia though.
As Japan, you might want an extra bomber, but you won’t be conducting any bombing runs, and you have Battleships, so usually the two you start with are enough.
As UK, you can’t afford 'em…it’d be nice, but ground troops for India and navy for Austraila are far more important. Perhaps in later rounds if things are going very well for the Allies one can splurge IPCs on a bomber, but by then it probably won’t see much action.
As US, pretty much all I build is bombers and subs, with the occasional loaded transport. Bombers can get from the West coast to China in two turns (via Queensland) so they are ideal for augmenting your Chinese allies. They have great versatility via airbases for threatening large tracts of sea zones, forcing the Japanese to protect all vessels or risk destruction. Coupled with subs as fodder, they are ideal for fleet engagements.
I usually build at least two bombers per turn as US, and often more.
