In a manner of speaking. You can just ignore them. Easily.
One other thing about that game, though: It shifts the purchase phase to the end of the turn for ease of teaching/streamlined play. This has nothing to do with the zombies, though.

It's been a bit since my last game of A&A. I do fondly remember the Red October....the Russian submarine that had the hottest die and was the solo terror of the North Atlantic sinking the entire German navy.

I've moved on to different games o we time and offer a suggestion that if you want to take a small step up in complexity with a step down in scale, check out Memoir 44. The base game comes with Americans and Germans but you can add as many other facets as you want if you get into the system.

The card play mixed with the die rolling makes it a game with a little more strategy and a little less hoping for good dice luck.

I still like A&A, it's just not the type of game we play much anymore.

One of my circles of friends & I have been playing A&A about every 6 weeks or so for the past several years.
This past year, with everything shut down due to the pandemic, we actually played more - every three weeks on average.

Our usual version of choice is the A&A anniversary edition. But we've got them all.
A&A+zombies & 1914 see a decent amount of play.

On A&A 1914: My personal opinion on this one is that it takes nearly as long to play as it did to fight WWI. But several of the group rather like it, so....

I was in a group that used to play "World in Flames" That's a World War 2 game with teeth. Way more complex than A&A.
You could try Hearts of Iron from Paradox. That has been an interesting play.
Or maybe A World at War

Hearts of Iron has issues basically it's to complex.

I liked Hearts of Iron II own 3 and 4 but can't get into them.

I don't mind onplex but they added a while lot if micro to an already micro intensive game.

Ymmv may vary of course.
