Did you use fighters only, or bombers as well? How many did you use per airfield attack?
Only fighters but Italian squadron because there are fighters and level bombers in the same unit.
How many? It depends, the big units (around 50 a/c) when the airports have a strong defence.
I prefer to use LB and CAS to soften up the enemy defensive lines.
you airfield attack will knock out the soviet air units for a month or two. they get roughly 20 planes a turn but the airforce is in a very bad state and your attack made matters even worse.
Yes, it would be nice if the air units placement was not coded, in this way for the German would be more difficult find the enemy aircrafts.
In fact, after the first attacks (of course, having played as Soviet in a test game against AI I know how the units are collocated) I stopped to attack his bases without a recon mission first, therefore even if I know where are his bomber in the South of the map I don't have attacked them (a personal house rule).
As I looked at your post #18 I was thinking to myself "If Sniper used a Speed Card on the 24th, he could have severed that rail line just south of the 24th and te Russian 45th and 62nd would have been out of supply.
Not enough points for this card (IIRC are necessary 14 points), anyhow I don't have used all my card yet, especially for two corps with panzer divisions.
My point is, do you think it would be helpful if there was a SUPPLY OVERLAY that would also work for enemy units? I think it would. For example, wouldn't it be great to click on the 1/45 Inf Reg and see the Supply situation, then plot your moves as such? Otherwise you have to do that adding up stuff as I was doing.
Uhm...I would not, usually I prefer more FOW and guessing where the enemy supply are active or not is part of the funny
