one hassle I have, is units, there are a number of units in 100 Group, that come in later, that start someplace else, and they are code driven (171/199/223, so I can't do anything with them, the code will pull them out and reassign them) but, there are also Mossie units that should show up in 100, that I think will stay in there starting commands (so, I do not know if I should leave them where they should be at start, or if I should place them into 100 Group at start)
This reminded me of the problem with units being removed. Me -- as the commander not knowing about it. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of units being removed and upgraded, but what if you had just switched them to a different type of aircraft and "poof" they are gone.
well, the two units in the Med flying the A-36, are only ones to really worry about, they will change over to Fighter units, if left alone, if changed to a bomber from the A-36, they will then stay as bombers, the other units are plain bombers, so I believe it is unit driven, not bomber type, so, if the bomber type changes, it should still be the same thing, they will be pulled and changed over to RCM types, it is in the code and not the data, so I do not have any control over it
also we got 462 RAAF, a Hally Unit in the Med, it is going to disband in 44, be reformed in the Med as 614, while also being reformed as 462 RAAF RCM and joining 100 Group, what I did before, was pulled 462, bring in 614 when it was formed, and bring in 462 when it was refromed, but that means that for close to a year, the Med is short one HEAVY night bomber Squadron
I could add in 614 at start (as it really is 462) or I can leave it alone ?
Just an opinion... K-I-S-S!
well it is already simple, that don't mean it is what people want (then again, not many people may know about it, so they don't care much either way)
that is a odd one, 462 RAAF, was a RAF squadron, with very few RAAF types, the Land of Oz types, didn't like that, so demanded that the squadron be disbanded, so later, the 462 RAAF was disbanded, the squadron renamed 614 with the old crews, 462 RAAF was then reformed in England, with RAAF crews
803rd BS was the beginning of the US RCM units, they were under command of the US, but flew with/for 100 group, it will soon, become 36th BS (H) RCM, so I have kept it as 36th, but moved it to 100 group
In TOH, you couldn't add a B-17 RCM to a day mission. Wasn't RCM used during daylight hours?
I think it could be, if assigned as a Fighter Sweep (I know the Mossy/Welly RCM could)
and yes, RCM planes flew during the day, and they flew with the raids, most times, a plane with in each BombGroup, but, they were used for Jammer of AA radar, that is factored in with the code
the biggest thing with the Jammers, is there are never enough of them.
Nice work with the radar display!
thanks, glad somebody likes it, it is fun, when it works
