Link up A&A Pacific 1940 and Europe 1940, and you've got Axis & Allies Global 1940.

I got my wish for a beefed up SBR, but not my wish for a Battle of Britain.

Didn't get your wish for a Battle of Britain? There are two German strats and an Italian one. Plus five german Tac's and five ftrs. Italy has two ftrs. What else do you require to conduct a Battle of Britain?

The Euro Axis have the means to cripple london with sbr's. If the Axis player does not conduct a Battle of Britain it is by choice.

A battle requires two sides, bombers with escorts vs. interceptors.

the RAF isn't going to show up, the attackers are too strong, and if they do, it is the spit fires that will get the worst of it.

That is EXACTLY what the Battle of Britain was. The Luftwaffe bombing London in an attempt to draw out the smaller RAF. Sometimes the RAF engaged, other times they did not.

an accurate measure for G40 would probably be a single SBR run by the Germans on G2, maybe G3. Thats all the Battle of Britain measures out to in G40.

Yes, but without adjusting for the fuel advantage of the defenders. (or radar but that's a separate issue)

I played my first game with the new SBR system and I think it is perfect and should not be changed a bit. We saw more raids in the last game then all previous alpha 3 games combined. Both sides were conducting them. Even though I advocated for interceptors and escorts rolling at 2 or less, I like that everything rolls at a one. It makes me more willing to conduct raids that are out of my escorts range because the interceptors are only rolling 1s. Also I am glad you didn't have the rule that 1 damage inactivates a complex, that would be too devistating.

My only concern with SBR is that with Germany getting another Strat bomber at set up it makes it easier for them to cripple UK production early on, making it harder for them to defend against sealion. In our game germany bought another bomber on G1 and then on G2 bombed england to the stone age. They attacked with 3 bombers, 4 tacs, 3 escorts. With all that fire power Britian did not send there 4 figters to intercept and Germany put the hurt on with 17 damage on IC, 6 on NB, and 4 on AB. That is five less infantry that Britian has to defend a possible G3 sealion. Larry if you still feel Germany needs another air unit how about a tac since it can still hit at a 4, but can't be used to bomb factories. If you want to keep the bomber, then you need to add at least one more maybe two inf to england.

Looks good to me. I submitted that ints and escorts should attack at 2s but now I think 1s is alright.
