I've reached the period where the P-60A is eligible to upgrade to P-60C, however the production/replacement is set to zero. Any idea what the correct number should be, and can I fix this through the editor?

Many thanks,
Simon

As only one P60C was made this is correct.

(But I'm sure you mean something else, maybe P70)

Assuming that you mean the P-61A/P-61C.

The 0 production/replacement rate is correct; only 54 P-61Cs were built, of these only 41 actually flew. None were used in combat in the Pacific.

You can easily change the production/replacement rate of the P-61C in the editor; simply put a value in the "Build Rate" box.

Maybe I wasn't clear. The production number for P-60C is empty, in others words I can't upgrade since no aircraft are being produced since no number is listed.

WitP-AE Allied plane production/replacement rates are based on the RL numbers. There is no number for P-61Cs because none were actually used in combat in the Pacific.
So, no, you can't upgrade.
You can, however, go in the editor and put a number value in the "Build Rate" box for the P-61C.

Which airplane are you talking about?

The Curtiss P-60?


Or were you talking about the P-70C


Or were you talking about the P-61C?


Or were you talking about the Gotha P.60


I would want to believe you are talking about P-61C and according to most of my sources the P-61C completed flight testing in July of 1945 and the inital squadron was doing conversation training in August of 1945 when the end of the war was announced. They weren't expected to deploy overseas until late October of 1945. So there is a reason it isn't included in the supply track.

My bad. Sorry for the confusion. I did mean the P-61C. If non were used it seems a little odd to list the P-61C then. Thanks for the clarifications.

It is listed for the same reason the F8F, F7F, FR-1, Lincoln B.1, and a few others were included. If you wanted to make a scenario that went further then the traditional end of the war (01SEPT45), then you could do so, with only some minimum tweaking to the scenario.
