For each combination of 1 infantry, 1 armor and 1 Artillery unit he can roll one additional die. Note: a fighter can replace any one of the units to qualify a group for a combined arms bonus. For every number 5 or under he scores a hit. This is also the case for the defender.

this is cool, adlertags idea on this was good as well...

this seems to set the tone for unit size restrictions in territories...

In our game we call this" rommels rules" each tank gives +1 for 2 infantry units, while the artillery gives +1 to one unit.
We really need an Axis and Allies World War one game so i can play that on August 1st, 2014.

I like the idea of combined arms, but I don't want to roll more dice. We roll too many dices. I prefer a bonus.

I love combined arms. Thank you Larry.

Now we dont need different combat values for infantry.
We can keep the 6 sidet dice, and values from Revised.

But since we dont like special rules, like bonus roll, it must be like this:
(6 sidet dice)

Infantry with matching artillery with matching tanks all attack on 3 or less.
A matching fighter can replace any of the other units.

Infantry with matching artillery with matching blockhouse all defend on 4 or less.
A matching fighter can replace any of the other units.

Infantry with matching artillery both attack on 2 or less.

Mech.infantry with matching tanks both attack on 3 or less.

Tanks with matching bomber both attack on 4 or less.

Infantry with matching blockhouse defend on 3 or less.

Destroyer with matching cruiser with matching battleship all att/def on 4 or less.
A matching fighter can replace any other unit.

A destroyer with matching fighter both att/def on 4 or less.

This looks interesting, I've played useing a form of combined arms and the game did not drag on or become unbalanced due to it's inclusion.

adlertag has some great ideas for combined arms here, which I am much in favour of. An extention of the inf-art combo seems natural for the advanced game.

My concern is what happens when you lose one of said units; do you shift the others down the "combat value" line?
