The quote speaks about the raid's speed. Who sets the speed - fighters or bombers?
Bombers have mission and destination, while fighters are given Escort mission and the same altitude. So let's say it is the bombers who set the raid speed.
217 x 20% = 43,4 mph
217 + 43 = 260 mph.
Oscar cannot fly this slow. So yes, Oscars are too fast to coordinate, while you say the fly together with Helens pretty often.
But what if it is the fighters who set the raid speed if you give them the same destination as the bombers.
Bombers will fly together with fighters provided the cruise speed difference between them will not exceed 20% of fighter cruise speed. I don't know how the game handles that but I don't believe fighter can't fly at sub-cruise speed. Thus, I guess, bombers catch up using their max speeds.
340 mph x 20% = 68 mph
340 - 68 = 272 mph
So no coordination with B-17F, cause the speed difference is more like over 40% (136 mph) of the fighter cruise speed.
273 mph x 20% = 54,6 mph
273 - 54,6 = 218,4 mph
Now, here there is high chance that Helens will fly with Oscars. They are 1,4 mph above the 20% difference.
Don't ask me about the second part of the sentence about the 30 minute time. I don't understand this part.
