Unarmed aircraft with 5 kills, I have NO idea how this happened. (WitP stock)

You may have had a Hudson Bomber group previously and it upgraded to Dakotas?

Is that really an upgrade path?  I guess it is possible.  I'd be pretty proud of a Hudson group with 5 kills too!  But at least it would make more sense.  (this is 7/42, so the British are getting upgrades).

243 were originally (Dec 41) a Buffalo squadron.  They were one of the units mauled in the defence of Singapore and the DEI.  After those campaigns the units was disbanded and reformed later as a transport squadron.  The game doesn't model this so the kills are from the squadron's time as a fighter unit

I just had this in my CHS game:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Day Air attack on Magwe , at 31,29


Allied aircraft
Dakota I x 10


No Allied losses

Aircraft Attacking:
10 x Dakota I bombing at 15000 feet

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There wasn't enough Hurricanes, so it upgraded to Dakota Is and I missed it. The
next turn, it flew an airfield attack mission.

Yes, I had that happen to me once playing against the AI and it took me a bit to figure out what those Dakotas were doing. One has to be watchful of British Squadron upgrades as they can take a revolutionary evolutionary path.

If ya' really wanna go out on a limb....the Military C 47 had infantry gun ports in the center of the passenger windows, so maybe.....?

As for bombing......well, the Chinese used Curtiss Condors for bombing, so maybe some stuff was thrown out of the planes?

Yes, and you're right.

This is because you let a squadron auto upgrade and it upgraded to Dakotas but the mission wont change because of an upgrade. You cant hit anything on this mission as the Dakotas "armament" is none, so you would be just wasting planes.

I understand, my opponent set upgrades on when he started the game. I just missed it.

Well it would be possible later on when the C-47 'Spooky' gunships were available...of course that was about 30 years later.
