Hi guys,

Iv'e got a few PBEM's on the go at the moment, two as the empire and one as the allies. What iv'e noticed over the last few months is that allied air search seems much more effective than the jap version.

Is this just me or part of the game?

Cheers.

HOW do you find the time to do all that???? And yes the allies seem to have the recon edge... not sure why as the Mavis is a great bird... at least in range. Hal

With non radar equipped aircraft it should not be any different. Successful search depends on crew quality and search skills. That is it. Other factors are number of aircraft, elevation, weather, range and scope of search but these are the same for both sides. With recon it is different. Camera equipped aircraft do a much better job and the Allies hold most all the cards there. Early war Japanese air crews should have and edge due to great experience.

I do not know how or if aircraft radar has an influence on naval search but it probably does and later generation Allied aircraft have plenty. It certainly helps with sub detection and ASW.

Japs dont really have many patrol units... Probably the greatest reason. Early on, about 10 planes per theater or so... Nowhere near enough.

What a hoot, I was about to make the same complaint about the Allies. Both sides have great long range bombers and have to use them. They are not as good but the key is that you really have to train up pilots in search. In my campaign I was so hard up for search aircraft that I basically gave this task to all my B17s and was reluctant to use them in combat for the first half of 42 as I needed them for searching.

Even now in mid 44, I just never seem have enough patrol units.

I fear my education in Frostbite Falls' finest elementary school might have been colored by the many cartoons we studied in history classes. The degree of nearsightedness in Japanese soldiers, sailors, and airmen of the WWII-era was remarkable, as was their need for heroic intervention by practioners of the orthodontic arts.

But how could that be possible when you have Mr Peabody in charge of the curiculum.
