Can anyone shed more light on the "cards" Larry mentioned which were eliminated from the R&D area? Were they simply memory aids confirming that a particular R&D advancement was in the player's possession?
The "Weapons Development" header on that section is a typo, as the real section on that topic is farther down. What he's talking about there are the Marshaling Circles and accompanying cards that allowed you to replace large armies on the board with a marker.
