– some new units: M3 Scout Car, Avenger, Kate, …
– some changes to the attributes of the units.
– increase AP for all type of units. Especially for aircraft.
– new UI for aircraft (like the men of infantry unit.) We have squadrons with more planes (18-21 planes by squadron.)

– add the possibility to bomb an unrecognized tile for bomber planes.
– add torpedo bomber and torpedo attack (range=1)
– add the strafing attack for fighters/bombers. Work also on unrecognized tile.
– improve the ship movements: movement allowed only in the forward arc and add the possibility for the ships to turn limited to an eighth of a revolution with AP’s cost.
– improve the ship movements for have always one tile spacing between ships (the landing ships aren’t affected.)
– add the Japanese Morale Specific Rules.
