I have looked through the archives and the limited information in the manual. I can't seem to find the way to calculate the monthly HI cost for Japanese Pilot training.

Can someone point me in the right direction, please?

Thank you!

The mulitplier is 5 * pilots in training (not pools)

Thanks Damian ,

OK, so we take all the pilots in the 12 months training program and multiply by 5, right? That is what appears to be it.

I am trying to find a way to cut my over 50k HI per month in pilot training. I have been very aggressive on my pilot training on map, but still trying to get a handle on the "un-mapped" pilot training. After a Pilot completes his 12 months and goes into the "Pilots" pool they are not costing any more, right?

So, I am thinking that a large TRACOM that "pulls" pilots through the training program quicker is the key, right? I currently have 65 Army and 185 Navy TRACOM pilots. Is there, like aircraft factories, a magic number I need to shoot for?

Geesh, Just when I think I have a handle on one part of this game another aspect kicks my butt... Isn't this great!

Sounds like you're playing scenario 2 ... the added pilot numbers do make scenario 2 difficult even with the added capability of the scen2 economy. As to Tracom - you are right, this is one way to pull pilots into the pool and thus pay less.

A while ago there was a test that talked about the numbers of tracom pilots and how they pulled pilots. I can't remember the exact figures but it was something about you needed a certain number of Tracom to get an effect. Groupings of 5 - I think ... I'll try doing a forum search on this as it is worthy of a proper answer.

Yeah - it's a great game, nuggets that keep on coming. Be back if I find the thread!

The scenario we are playing is scenario 6, the December 8th campaign. I looked at the last 100 or so turns in tracker and saw this:



Look at turn 882 (May 7th, 1944 I believe). What does the over 13,000 pilots drawn into active duty on one day mean?

I can see single and double digits being affected, but five digits????

Any ideas?

Class graduated I think.  Arny and Navy ....  You have pilots in Tracom, correct?  That would explain all the other entries.
