A couple random questions... (Hemajor, stay out)
1. The manual is fairly clear on what needs to happen for replacements, yet these conditions do not always seem to work. Are there other replacement conditions that need to happen?
I have two units on a quiet non-malaria island that need replacements, there are 45K supplies there, no enemy nearby, and plenty of armaments/manpower in the pool. These units have no fragments anywhere on the map, and are completely whole. One is a tank unit stuck at 38/38, the other an infantry. Anything I might be missing?
2. What is a typical A/C loss rate for each side by early '43? Can you report your aircraft losses total on each side by this point in the war, as PBEM? I am curious if my losses are higher, about normal, or lower than normal at this point in the war, and also for my opponent. I'm playing Japan, it's 4/43, and I've lost about 10K vs. 7K on the Allies side. I think I am probably behind there where I should be. The gap is widening, it's about 2 to 1 most turns these days, with alot of A/C destroyed on the ground.
