  • For each territory owned at the start of the turn, a maximum of 1 new Bunker can be purchased/placed per turn (no stack limits) (bunker placement is additional to normal placement, if a Factory is present).

Special Units Type: Land: Bunker, HeavyTank, Mech.Rocket
Air: JetFighter, L.Fighter, S.Bomber
Naval: S.Submarine, B.Carrier

(if "Add Elite Marine ArmoredCar Mot.Inf Mech.Inf Adv.Fighter Stuka B.Transport" is deselected at start game, Stuka are substituted with Fighter, in the setup)

Capitals (shown by flags )

  • Unconditional Surrender: Victory is achieved at any moment the enemy alliance owns only 5 capitals or less (original plus conquered) (the Victory Notification is after Combat).
  • Most allied nations (excluding Anzac and China) have multiple capitals.
  • If and when any of these capitals are captured, the attacker gains all of the PUs of the owner nation.
  • Nevertheless, the defender can collect income again and produce, as long as it holds at least one of its capitals.
  • Exception: Russians may still collect income and even produce after all of its capitals are captured.

Canals (shown by blue dots )

  • Canals are displayed with 1 or 2 blue dots between 2 land territories and 2 sea zones.
  • Your alliance must own both land territories at the start of your turn to control a canal.
  • When there are any number of canals between two sea zones, your alliance only need to control 1 of the canals for you to move between the sea zones.
  • A single blue dot represents a canal where the two land territories are connected with each other (land units can always cross by land).
  • Double blue dots represent a canal where the two land territories are not connected with each other (land units can never cross by land).

Special Rules

  • The following territories are considered originally owned by Chinese: Peking, Shantung, Fukien, Kwangsi, Hainan.

Rules Clarifications

WW2V2 rules (aka Revised) are used as the basis, with the following changes and clarifications:

  1. Low Luck (LL) - A move illegal using regular luck (dice) is illegal under low luck too. A move legal using regular luck (dice) is legal under low luck too.
  2. *Neutrals - Neutral territories and units are hostile and can be attacked, but you can't fly over neutral territories.
  3. Bombing Raids - The maximum total damage per turn per territory from strategic bombing raids is limited to the value of the territory.
  4. *Aircraft-Carrier Combat Move - During combat movement, the movement of any aircrafts requiring landing on carriers is legal only if a minimum number of carriers required for landing all aircrafts either:
    - Move to the landing zones, during combat movement (even if they have no chance of winning the battle, if any).
    - Can move to the landing zones, during non combat movement, without moving into or through any sea zones that are hostile at the start of the turn.
    (in any case, as per normal rules, you are allowed to move a carrier during combat movement only if starting or ending movement in a hostile sea zone (to escape combat or to do combat or both); otherwise, you must wait non combat movement, to move the carrier at all)
    (all the restrictions at this point apply only and exclusively to determine what movements are allowed during combat movement, and have no relevance anymore once the combat movement phase is over; not restricting casualties' selection, retreat choices or non combat movement (see below))
  5. *Aircraft-Carrier Non Combat Move - During non combat movement, if there are any aircrafts requiring landing on carriers, then moves must be made by carriers and aircrafts under the only special limit to maximize the number of aircrafts that can safely land (eventually also by moving into or through non-hostile (no enemy units but submerged submarines) sea zones that were hostile at the start of the turn, if needed or preferred), no matter what movements carriers were previously assumed eventually to make, nor what carriers were supposed to pick up which fighters, during combat movement (if the aircrafts are killed in combat or other carriers are available due to retreating, the carriers accounted for validating combat movements that are not anymore needed to safely land any aircrafts can move wherever).
  6. Combat Movement Before Purchase Phase - The following are the differences due to the altered phase order:
    - Players know about any air losses occurring during combat movement due to AA fly-overs prior to the purchase phase.
    - Conquering an enemy capital empty of combat units (combat units are all units but Factory and AAGun) allows spending all captured PUs right away in the same turn's purchase phase (it is advised to leave at least one cheap combat unit behind if abandoning a capital).
  • These rules aren't entirely enforced by TripleA, so the players must fully enforce them.

Optional Rules

  • Limited Constructions: Bunker units have max stack limit of 6 per territory.
  • LHTR Carrier Production Rules: New Fighters etc. can be placed on existing and new Carriers; existing Fighters etc. can be placed on new Carriers only by ending movement in the Sea Zone the Carrier is to be placed (still, combat movement moves cannot be validated assuming landing on yet to be placed Carriers).
  • Damage From Bombing Done To Units Instead Of Territories: Bombing damages Factory units, instead of destroying PUs; a Factory can be damaged up to the production value of the territory; each damage costs 1 PUs to repair at start turn; each (not repaired) damage lowers by 1 the max placement ability of the Factory.
  • Units Can Be Destroyed Instead Of Captured: All Factory and AAGun units are destroyed upon capture, always.
