Antiaircraft guns now cost 6 instead of 5. By the way, AA guns can only fire at aircraft that attack the territory they are on. There are no longer any taking pop shots at over flying aircraft. Battleships now cost 20, down from 24. Carriers are now down too. They cost 14. They used to cost 16. Transports have been reduced as well. They now cost 7, one less than before. Their attack/numbers have changed from 0/1 to 0/0. There is a big change in subs as far as cost. They went from 8 to 6. Their attack/defense numbers have changed from 2/2 to 2/1.
I think I figured out why. The secret is in the Research and Development- ROCKETS. If attained, rockets can be powerful in this game. The country that has it will buy more AAguns because in this game (just like Revised) you can have more than one AAgun in a territory AND you can fire from EACH one in this game also. You still can't do that for SBRs or combat but you CAN fire from each AAgun- even if you have more than one in a territory- for the ROCKET advantage. AA50 gives you a better chance, if almost guaranteed, that someone will get a R&D during the game at some point and therefore better chances to get ROCKETS. This would explain the slight increase in cost for AAguns from 5 to 6.- well at least I think.questioneer wrote:Why do AAguns cost 6 IPCs now??? They lose their "pop-shot" ability yet they cost more? What was the thinking on this one? Has anyone got an answer from Larry on this one yet??
Would still like to get an answer from the man himself on this one. Was it a production misprint or what?questioneer wrote:Why do AAguns cost 6 IPCs now??? They lose their "pop-shot" ability yet they cost more? What was the thinking on this one? Has anyone got an answer from Larry on this one yet??
