“Air range results” refer to the number of “10+” air range research results achieved. Each major power coalition may increase its air range no more than three times per game.

The maximum ranges in hexes for strategic bombers and escorting interceptors for each theater are given for each level of air range achieved. Strategic bombers and escorting interceptors begin the game with a range of four hexes in Europe and three hexes in the Pacific.

For every eight (Europe) or four (Pacific) hexes of excess bombing range, friendly bomber SW combat dice rolls receive a favorable +/-1 DRM. This modifier is limited by the number of strategic bomber research results achieved by the bombing alliance faction (the initial Western Allies strategic bombing result counts towards this limit).
