sorry about that. American CV cags at the start of the GC. For the record I am playing scen 2, stock with the latest beta (at least latest about a week ago). US VF sqds can not be divided at the start of the game, which is a bit annoying since this is the period of the war I most need to split the VFs up, later in the war I'll have plenty of CV's to use and set entire squadrons to various missions. However early in the war I can't divide the VF squadrons and was wondering why it is that way? Like posted above, I'd like to divide my fighter squadrons into 3 -1 high lvl cap, 1 low level cap, and one escort/rest. It would be nice to be able to divide the dive bombers as well to put a few on asw at low alt while the rest retained their higher altitude for dive bombing missions, but I can live without that (that's what tbds are for right? :p :)
I am not calling it a bug, I'm sure it's working as intended, but was more curious the reasoning behind it and if it may be changed in a new patch? Without the ability to split groups it almost forces you to bunch your CVs up early in the game or give up the ability to layer cap. And I know you can add VMF units to the CVs. but they take 6 months to become carrier trained and suffer heavy losses as a result if used for cap. Interesting enough, I CAN divide VMF squadrons up, but not the navy VF squadrons.
