Balance Changes include:

General changes 
• Normalize Air Defense values for heavy armor of all nations to increase effectiveness of tactical bombers in Mid and Late War. 
• Promote additional use of units that traditionally do not see use through stat and price balancing. 
• All aircraft for all nations have received +6 Ground Defense to reduce damage taken from units such as Infantry with [1] attack value. 
• All air defense units for all nations have received +7 Air Attack to compensate for the above change and improve air defense unit performance. 
• All 1943 Infantry Variants for all nations have received +1 initiative to increase potency in close terrain battles. 
• All anti-tank units of all nations have had a slight rule change. Instead of a -3 modifier on the offensive, this has been changed to a +3 modifier on the defensive. The net result is that Anti-tank units should perform better in terrain with initiative caps when they are on the defensive. To adjust for this change, all anti-tank units of all nations have had their initiative reduced by three. 
• Soviet Aircraft have been raised to a level historically appropriate but one that is also suitable for effectively engaging the Luftwaffe. 
• Infantry now retain experience bonus in close terrain. 
• Increased ground defense of all Mid and Late war anti-tank units. Mid War towed ATG units increased to 7 Ground Defense, Late War towed ATG units increased to 8 Ground Defense. 
• All Stukas have had a slight price increase. 
• First series of Captured Units has been added to the German Unit Roster: Char B, Somua S35, Panhard Recon Car, Matilda II, Polish 105mm Artillery. 
• Medium Tanks for all nations have had a price reduction in addition to their stat changes. Heavy Tanks and Heavy Anti-tank units have had their prices increased. Units affected:
