seemingly an 8 plane squadron at normal range with 20% rest will cover 120 degrees of arc am/pm. if one cuts the range of search to half normal range will the squadron then cover 240 degrees?

no, the arc coverage stays the same, regardless of range.

# of arcs covered depends solely on # of planes flying.

thanks, so would half normal range translate into better coverage of the search arc? fewer ops losses? less fatigue?

thanks, i did notice less fatigue/ops losses by reducing search to normal range.
