I'm sure this is all WAD, but it seems rather odd.

When France is liberated, all the Free French units (fighting with the UK) become French units.

However, that means that suddenly they go back to French Tech levels (i.e. level: 0).
*Silly Monty Python French Accent* "Noh, we don't need your stinkin' Spitfire VII and IX fighters. We 'ave our
own perfectly good planes from 1939. Go away you silly English Ki-nig-it."

Additionally, with French Tech level at 0 the French MPP are basically worthless (other than maybe diplomacy, which
by that stage of the game is nearly worthless itself). Heck, even liberated Italy makes better units (as they keep the
Tech they acquired while Axis).

There should be some mechanism for Free France to gather tech (a few months behind UK), and to either semi-occasionally build a unit
or have a few show up on the build chart. There were, relatively, significant Free French forces involved in the liberation of France.

Yeah, at the very least they should keep their previous tech level...

That would still be worthless.

I meant the upgraded unit should keep their previous tech level.

Overall it's not a huge deal.
There's only a 25% chance to get a Free French unit, so 1 maybe both French air units if you are truly lucky.
It just was very odd in my vs. Axis AI game to watch a useful Free French air unit suddenly become worthless (except as a sacrificial scout plane) upon French liberation. I also saw no point in ever spending
French MPP on anything (not that I needed to at that point). Oh, and if you had said unit in Greece or Yugo it would suddenly go out of supply in addition to no HQ support.
