Technology has undergone a major change. Whereas in the past you paid
5 IPCs just for the chance to roll and then if you got any 6ís, then
you rolled again to randomly get a tech. Sometimes you got Heavy Bombers
(which was great), and sometimes you got Super Subs or Rockets (which
wasnít so great).
Now, you get to pick which technology you want to go after, which
makes getting the tech of your choice 6 times easier than it was before.
The technologies themselves have undergone some changes. Heavy
Bombers have been reduced to only 2 dice per bomber, while Rockets has
gotten better (ability to fire multiple rocket attacks every turn).
Rockets and Heavy Bombers are arguably the best two technologies
available, and aside from perhaps Russia, should definitely be
considered in any playerís strategy.
