I am not sure about this, maybe copying the historical German strategy is the obvious thing to do, but if a player wants to choose a different strategy, there should be the possibility of different results.
If a player chooses to make an all-out airfield attack, ignoring all other potential air tasks, then it should be possible to achieve higher than the historical results. How much of the German air effort was directed against airfields on the 22nd June, because we cannot compare a player's maximum effort on airfields against an historical German plan, which may not have directed all their effort against airfields.
I hope it's not 'this is what happened on the day, so this is what must happen in the game'.
WiTE Scenario 1 - June 22 Start (historical)
WiTE Scenario 2 - June 23 Start (historical)
WiTE Scenario 3 - June 22 Start (Northern focus)
WiTE Scenario 4 - June 22 Start (Southern focus)
WiTE Scenario 5 - June 22 (?) Start (Soviet preemptive strike)
WiTE Scenario 90 - Modded Scenario 1
We've been through all this with WiTP. I'm surprised it's still up for debate.
My point is that, the rationale seems to be to adjust losses towards the historical results (obviously history is the guide to the game mechanics), but if the player has chosen to make a maximum effort on airfield attacks, ignoring other air tasks, how does that compare with the historical German strategy of the 22nd June. I don't know the answer, but merely noting that it may be possible to achieve more than the historical results, using a different strategy.
So if players were achieving +6000, could the Germans have achieved the same with a different strategy on the day.
