J.C. Hamlin (J.C.Hamlin@born.com) has a DOS program available that also computes the results of A&A battles. This program is shareware, and the current version level is 1.2. This program is written for a PC in 80x25 color text mode. It handles the entire attack sequence, including AA, off-shore shells, and subs. It does both land and sea battles (but not combined attacks, yet), it handles technology, and it allows you to set attack and defense strategies and objectives (save the bombers, take the territory, retreat the planes, etc), which basically allow you to specify how you want your pieces to be lost, when you want to retreat, and special case things like saving an infantry or tank to take the territory. It displays the 12 most likely outcomes (based on remaining pieces) with the number of times and percentage of the time each outcome happens, and exact piece counts for those outcomes. It also summarizes outcomes in several categories: attacker wins (takes territory, doesn't take), defender wins (attacker destroyed, attacker retreated), nothing left, and defending subs get away. It displays the number of times and percentage of the time each category occurred, and the average number of remaining pieces for that category. It can be found at the Official A&A FAQ FTP Site: ftp://ftp.indirect.com/pub/rpg/axis+allies/utils/
