I think I have him on the ropes in the air. I had the advantage over him from the start, better planes, good skilled pilots with high morale. So far he has lost 1325 pilot's half to WIA, seeing that we start just before Overlord, I think he is going to have a deeper pool of pilots than I expect. He also does not fly major defence attacks every day, if I average out for 5 days he is lossing (15) KIA pilots and (25) WIA + MIA a day.
The German advantage is that he knows that my attacks must be Overlord targets so he can strip HAA from any non Overlord target if he want's. He also does not need to keep his fighters where they start the game and move them as far forward as his bases allow. Troop's can be loaded up with HAA and LAA to make flak traps.
My biggest problem is trying to cause troop damage every turn. While still hitting Rail, PRI AF and Radar. When I hit his troop their disruption jumps for a turn, but drops very fast even with all rail yards leading to the troops at major damage.
After writing this I think I need to hit the rail yards harder and get them up to 100% and see if that make a diffrence.
