Air HQ - 7/30/2012 4:47:17 PM

Yet another HQ question! Now I've checked the manual (honest Alfred I DID try to find the answer) and can not find specifics (also did a forum search which sent me all over the place) so I'm resorting to bothering folks. I have an air HQ (RAF 223 I think, listed as HQa) in a well know location that has an airfield of size 5. I put the HQ there to give a group operations bonus (right now it can fly 6 groups without penalty) yet nothing has happened! It is still at 6 groups (one above the field size). Now the base is Aussie and the command RAF, but I don't think that makes a difference (except in real life!). What parameters are needed to allow the air HQ to lend itself to a bonus?? Hal

Are u sure its a group thing. There are 2 things that can cause the airfield to get stacking penalties. Just asking.

If an Airfield has too many aircraft (physical space) or groups (administrative) present, then the
airfield is deemed overstacked. And is indicated by an ‘*’ next to the airfield.

An overstacked airfield affects how many aircraft can be launched, casualties from attacks
and aircraft repairs.

A 9+ airfield does not suffer from overstacking

An airfield can operate 50 single engine (or 25 two engine, or 12 four engine) planes per AF size
or 1 group per AF size. The best Air HQ of the same command as the base which is within range
can add its command radius to the number of groups that can be administrated, or if not in the
same command, the nearest HQ will add ½ its command radius to the number of groups.
In addition, groups at rest or in training only count as 1/3 for the purposes of counting aircraft
at the base, and don’t count at all against the number of groups. Split groups only count as
individual groups if they are attached to different HQs

Hope it helps,

Read this very fresh thread.

There are scattered manual references to the value of HQs for air operations. However, IIRC, the main information is provided in the readme notes of one of the patches. I'll do a separate search to bring that one to your attention.


Edit: Also read s.9.4 of the manual, page 214 which reinforces the thread link given above

Edit #2: First patch had this change

72. Gameplay Change: Command level headquarter units now behave like an Air HQ for the purpose of determining the over-stacking limits of airfields. The effect radius of a command HQ extends out to twice the command radius, but only applies half the affect when the distance to the base is more than the command radius.

Thanks Alfred, it would appear that my HQ is not aligned with the base. It is Far East, while the base is Australia (R)..... that's probably the problem... and to change the base is a LOT of political points.... at this stage in my game, no can do. And I don't really want to change the air HQ to restricted.....
