I doubt it. As Far As I Know the servicing is done only on the home base. So a Roll is made for a flight just as if it was a fighter/bomber mission - based on Plane fatigue, Pilot fatigue, Weather, Pilot exp, at least.
I am not sure which weather affects the results - that on home base only (just like fighter/bomber missions) = landing accidents, or the one on receiving end, or both ?
What works for me is to stand down planes in days where weather is Rainy/Thunderstorms in one of the Home/Delivery base. This way you usually take-of, fly, land, take-of, fly, land in rather nice weather. It also keeps plane/pilot fatigue down due to maintenance and service in "soaked in" days.
Thanks for a good suggestion.
This is a part of the game that that frustrates me, namely the micromanagement of very mundane actions that could be automated. It would be nice if AC had 'weather' settings where an air squadron can have an option not to fly in stormy weather, or automatically stand down once a certain plane fatigue is reached.
So a question. What is more important for air transport missions, General experience or Trans skill?
No data to support it but it seems that Exp is more important for nursing sputtering engines back to base or surviving bad weather while Trans is more for getting the job done well - especially on parachute ops (I think it affects casualty rates).
I think the "flying in bad weather" choice can be reduced by having the squadron commander with aggression only in the 50s range. Transport missions are rarely "must-do-at-all-costs".
Once again - excellent points! Thanks.
That's what I'm assuming too..... that Exper is more important (for operational losses), but never understood how that compared to Trans skill. On that note, I used to fill trans sqdrns w/leftover fighter pilots w/good experience levels to try to reduce ops losses, but was concerned about their low trans skills, never quite understanding the consequences of this action.
Nevertheless, I'm going to try tinkering w/Air trans leaders w/ various aggression ratings to see what happens when flying in bad weather. Thanks.
