I have begun trying to wear down the German air force with airbase bombing. I have run ten or fifteen missions. Now, I have a bunch of long-range bombers with miles left, but they don't seem to be able to fly airbase missions. They could be assigned to bomb units.

Same problem with flying supplies, now I check. There are dozens of air units with miles remaining but can't use them for either mission. What's up?

These are night missions, if it makes a difference. The air bases have plenty of fuel, ammo, and supplies.

Are they below the complement needed for your air doctrine?
Are they below 33% miles?
Are the airbases in swamps/urban or rough terrain?
Have you already bombed the hex twice?
Are the bases in range?
Are you using only fighter-bombers?
Are you selecting a stack of airbases where the top airbase is a recon base or of a different nationality?

There are other possibilities so let us know if it is none of these.

No
Yes, is this the issue? Why do air units need less than 33% to bomb airfields and deliver supplies but can still do ground strikes up to 100%?

It is my understanding that the FIRST 33% of air miles flown was put in place (first it was 50%) to constrain players like Telemecus that figured out how to smash 10,000 aircraft turbine and never let the Soviets come up for air .. the bombing a HEX only x2 is an Additional constraint to limit bedlam
