I'm sure you're welcome but may I suggest you thank Kreig... he's the driving force behind this.

Thanks Krieg, I love the optional rules, the perfect seasoning to some great improvements that AA50 already brings, IMHO.

Thanks Larry & Kreig

That clears up quite a few issues that weren't clear from the printed rules (particularly on aircraft, subs and destroyers and Chinese unit placement).

I think with cheaper bombers SBR may be too powerful, so it's great to see the old escort/interceptor rules re-introduced as an official optional rule.

Hi, guys! After lurking on this site for a while and finding lots of interesting and useful things to read - thanks - I now have a question.

Does Jet Fighters technology have any effect on the FAQ's optional Fighters Escorts and Interceptors rule (such as increasing the escort/interceptor attack values from 1, 2 to 2, 3)? Thanks.

Welcome to the ranks of the participants!

Since Jet Fighters increases fighters' attack values to equal their defense values in normal combat, I'd say it would do the same in SBRs, allowing attacking fighters to roll on a 2. However, Larry will need to confirm that.

The FAQ has been updated with several new questions and clarifications. The new information (including the answer to the above question) is in bright red.
