In WITP it is still possible to divide Japanese carrier based fighter squadrons into three divisions of 9 fighters correct? Possible because of the 5 unit maximum for carriers, this is handy because it allows much more flexibility...one can provide CAP, escort and LR CAP simultaneously, whereas with only one, LR CAP is an all or nothing practice, hardly useful for fleet carriers to practice.
If this is still possible, can anyone give me a reason why the Japanese should be the only nation capable of this extra tactical flexibility? The USN/RN squadrons can't divide, even if there is room.
I always hoped for a more useful/flexible mission tree for aircraft, something that could allow for simultaneous LR CAP and escort/CAP assignments, ground attacks as secondary missions etc. Oh well...
