2. Obsolete device conversion into armaments points etc. Could someone point me to an explanation of just what criteria need to be met for this to occur? I've got literally 1500 7.7mm and 13mm AAMGs sitting in my pool while almost all of my units have upgraded to 25mm or better AAA cannon. I'll never use those 1500 MGs but they aren't getting converted.
After 6 months, an expired pooled device (sqd or engineer type) will slowly convert to the upgraded version; if japan, obsolete devices go back to the raw materials.
IIRC, there was some concern about changing obsolete non-squad/engineer weapons into newer ones. I can see it probably un-balancing weapon replacement numbers, but I don't see any issue with the old devices being broken back in to resource points (arm, veh, etc), even at a reduced rate to simulate wastage, for Japan.
As obsolete aircraft are scrapped, it sounded right to be able to scrap the obsolete devices.
