As the title says. I have that doubt with the airplanes stats. The lower the reliability the better or not? I seem to recall lower was better, but I am not sure

The lower the better for tanks.

German medium tanks have reliability of 25. Soviet can be around 15.
Heavy tanks have around 35.

Yes, it's actually (un)reliability.

Hi morvael

Does the V1.00.07 – 19 December 2014 Rule correction in the WitW ´manual also applyies for WitE?

quote:

9.6. AIRCRAFT AND AFV/COMBAT VEHICLE RELIABILITY All aircraft and AFV/Combat vehicles have a reliability rating which ranges from “really good” (lower numbers) to “really bad” (higher numbers). An example of a 5 would be an armoured car and a 45 would be a Panther D AFV. These reliability ratings are checked when aircraft conduct a mission or AFV/Combat vehicles are moved, with those that fail the reliability check becoming damaged. To reflect initial production “teething” problems, aircraft and AFV/Combat vehicle reliability will be increased by five when they first come into production and then decrease by one each month until they reach their standard reliability rating. The reliability rating of obsolete (out of production) aircraft is treated as higher than their normal reliability rating, which will make them more susceptible to attrition.

V1.00.07 – 19 December 2014 Rule correction – Aircraft reliability works as described in the manual, but AFV reliability works differently. The reliability rating of an AFV is actually two different items. The first digit represents the reliability of the AFV when moving (if only 1 digit is shown the 1st digit is assumed to be 0). The higher the number, the less likely the AFV will become damaged during movement. The second digit is survivability, and the higher the survivability the less likely the AFV will be destroyed in combat during a special survival check as opposed to just being damaged.

Should apply to WitW/WitE2 but not WitE 1 which still uses the old system
