I am involved in my first PBEM as Japan and we are up to Mar 29, 1942 (Recent Beta, Scen 1, PDU = On, Realistic R&D = On). I have an A/C factory doing R&D on the KI-49 Ia Helen which is scheduled to become available in April 42. If I understand correctly, I need to switch this factory to research another airframe before the end of March or else the factory will automatically begin producing the KI-49 Ia on April 1st. Do I have this right? Is there something else I am not considering that should be taken into account? All feedback is greatly appreciated.

Regards, Paul

You are correct. With realistic R&D on, once an R&D factory begins producing operational aircraft, it can no longer be used for R&D. That's a decision you have to make. I recommend that if you do not want it to produce operational aircraft, upgrade it to the next model of that aircraft. I believe that it will not incur any damage. If I'm incorrect about that, I'm sure someone will chime in.

I believe mike is correct concerning an advanced version of the Ki49. I have found it possible to let the factory make a few planes and you can still convert it to the next the next version of the development tree at 100 point cost per R/D point per day. Say you were to produce 30 planes a month of the ki49a. If you convert the factory to the ki49b then the repair cost will be 100 supply points per factory research point. And the factory will repair at a rate of 1 per day.

However, if you change the ki49a factory to another plane R/D type outside of the development tree then the repair rate is very slow as well as the research rate being slow.
