A Mod by Cernel, based on World War II v3 1942 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), using your normal total movement abilities in either (no additional movement, nor any actual rules changes), yet:
- you must not capture enemy capitals before Purchase (it may happen only if the capital is left defenceless);
- you must not repair newly conquered factories (it may happen only if the factory is left defenceless);
- moves validated by Purchase choices (landing on new carriers) can be made only after Purchase .
The Americans and Chinese mixed turn plays as per correct original rules, but with the limit that Americans always go before for Combat and go after thereafter.
- 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
AA RADAR- AA guns hit on 2 or less
LONG RANGE AIRCRAFT- aircrafts range increased by 2
HEAVY BOMBER- roll 2 dice for each bomber in attack, but use only the lowest one, and 2 dice for each bomber in bombing raids, but use only the highest one
- Air/Naval Tech ***
- Land/Production Tech ***
IMPROVED ARTILLERY SUPPORT- artillery support 2 infantry
ROCKETS ADVANCE- AA guns conduct rockets attacks, with a range of 3, for 1d6 damage to production (each factory may only be targeted once per turn, and only 1 AA gun in each territory may fire) (AA guns conducting rockets attacks can't move)
PARATROOPERS- bombers may carry 1 infantry each into hostile land territories only (both units must begin their movement in the same territory; the bomber can't make a bombing raid; the bomber must stop its Combat Move movement in the first land territory it enters that was enemy owned at start turn; if the attacked territory has only AA guns and no other defending units, the AA guns are automatically captured without firing; if the bomber is hit by AA guns, the infantry it carries is also destroyed; paratroopers alone have no way to retreat; if retreat is possible, paratroopers retreat together with all other retreating 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 1d6 extra PUs each turn
MECHANIZED INFANTRY- armours may carry 1 infantry each
