The optional rules of Revised were ridiculous. I mean, every allied country had decent rules (and UK having probably the best with free IC and Joint Strike), and the Axis probably had the worst. Kamikaze anyone?
To be more historically correct, maybe the rules were correct. But I have to agree with the post of another member. If we were to do a historical game, we would have to take into consideration the attack/defense of every unit in the game, which would make the game far too complicated.
If one wants to play with joint strike, he should do so in in-house game
kamikaze could be strong
imagine a nice lonely carrier with 2 fighters on it with no place to land
worth a fighter?
I agree with your rational, but I do feel that Paratroopers belong in the game. I don’t know the solution though. Perhaps they could only be used in attacks where at least 1 other unit is also attacking the same territory by land or by sea. (I would make an exception for islands and perhaps undefended territories.)
