Need help interpreting new AirBase support data - 2/6/2012 11:23:47 PM

Ok Guys,

Need help with 1.05.59c Airbase support data. I have to admit that I never really understood how this was suppose to work in the first place and just left this as one of those "black-box pieces of game-magic" that was not really for public consumption.

But now it appears there was some effort put into making it provide useable and meaningful data, but I must be LD, as I still don't get it.

Here is one example that eludes me:
-----------
22nd LW Air Base:

EXP/RDY/DAM/GROUND ELEMENT/FAT
81 /251 /0 / Support /10

Support/Need: 269/309 (AV 281)
-----------


So, how does 251 Support Elements get translated to 269 in the Support/Need display? Where are the other 18 support elements coming from?


(sigh.... trying to attach a screen-shot, but web-interface not allowing it on edit. )

That's right. In case of Air HQ to cover non-air elements.

Expanding on the topic, how is the needed support calculated?
1 per fighter, 2 per ground attack, 3 per level bomber? How can I calculate this value before stuffing tje airbase full?
What is the penalty for overcrowding?

Didn´t find anything in the manual, if you point it out to me I would be very thankful

Support need varies based on number of aircraft and how much ammo they carry. More info behind the link.

I was wondering if this was the case or not. But if it was, I would expect that the support listed to exceed the number of support elements in more AirBases, as in the cited example above - 269 vs 251.

Something to keep an eye on and perhaps when enough people see the same strangeness either it will get fixed or explained.
