A Mod by Cernel, based on World War II v3 1941 1.7
You can Combat Move both before and after Purchase (you have 2 Combat Move phases; one before and one after the Purchase phase) (irrelevant: no actual rule change), yet:
- you must not capture enemy capitals before Purchase (not supported: you have to autolimit yourselves (it may happen only if the capital is left totally defenceless));
- moves validated by Purchase (landing on new carriers) can be made only after Purchase.
(if you want to play the game by the regular phase order, just always skip the first Combat Move phase of each turn)
Chinese Combat Move and Combat (chained) phases happen immediately after the same Americans ones, while Chinese Non Combat Move and Place (not chained) phases happen immediately before the same Americans ones (as per correct original rules; except that you can't choose whether to go with Chinese before Americans, or vice versa).
Raids May Be Preceeded By Air Battles (optional): Works by original rules (Fighter intercepts at 2 and escorts at 1 (at 2 with Jet Power); Bomber is defenceless).
- Air/Naval Tech ***
SUPER SUBS- submarines attack at 3
JET POWER- fighters attack at 4
IMPROVED SHIPYARDS- submarine, transport and destroyer costs reduced by 1; cruiser cost reduced by 2; carrier and battleship costs reduced by 3

LONG RANGE AIRCRAFT- aircraft range increased by 2
HEAVY BOMBER- roll 2 dice for each bomber in attack and bombing raid

IMPROVED ARTILLERY SUPPORT- artillery support 2 infantry
ROCKETS ADVANCE- AA conduct rocket attacks, with a range of 3, for 1d6 damage to production (each factory may only be targeted once per turn, and only 1 rocket in each territory may fire) (AA conducting rocket attacks can't move)
PARATROOPERS- bombers may carry 1 infantry each into combat (both units must begin their movement in the same territory; the bomber can't make a bombing raid; the bomber must stop in the first territory it enters that was enemy owned at start turn; if the attacked territory has only AA and no other defending units, the AA are captured with no battle; if the bomber is hit by AA, the infantry it carries is also destroyed; paratroopers alone have no way to retreat; if retreat is possible, paratroopers retreat together with all other land units)
INCREASED FACTORY PRODUCTION- factories produce 2 additional units, if territory value is 3 or greater; repair 1/2 price, rounded up
WAR BONDS- collect a 1d6 extra PUs each turn
MECHANIZED INFANTRY- armours may carry 1 infantry each
