Here are the two tech screens. Note that it is going to take 109 MONTHS to research the A bomb. That's over 9 years!!!! Does the game last that long?

It's already at lv 2. Does it have to lv 3 research to have a chance of becoming available before the game is over?

I think the key word in the sentence is Estimated.

On average at 2 stars it is going to take you 9 years (i.e. your not going to get it) but you might get (probably very) lucky and be able to drop it before the war ends.

With 3 stars I suspect the estimated (i.e. average) time may sill be longer than the war but you will probably need less in the way of luck to actually have it before the end of the war.

Which if I'm right seems OK as creating a deliverable Nuke in the historical timeframe of the ETO was and should be a big gamble in terms of effective allocation of resources.

We'll see. It was even worse than that estimate before I bumped it up to lv 2. Of course at the rate I am going, I'll have overrun everyone long before the A bomb is ready
