I've read high recon values help and I am spending my recon 100% to get atleast detection 4 for every German division.
Still no luck with interdictions. Only a few per turn. What am I doing wrong?

If you put interdiction to 300 that is why. If you are not getting any interdiction you need to make the number smaller.

Other things like range, leaders, fatigue, fuel, ammo etc matter too. You can also get airbases to detection level 5 (all terrain) and units in any terrain near to your units to detection level 2.

Smaller? My intuition has failed me.

Not failed you - the game design is counter-intuitive.

Smaller interdiction air doctrine means more but smaller interdictions. Larger interdiction air doctrine means fewer but larger interdictions. If you are getting no interdictions keep lowering the number until you get some. There are probably other issues but we would need to see screenshots of your airbases and airgroups to diagnose them.

300 for air interdiction and air interdiction escort is fine if you want to fly as many airplanes as possible to the interdict. The number that matters the most 1st is the percent required to fly, along with the other items that Telemecus mentioned. Sounds like you have run your aircraft into the ground and the % required to fly is not being met. What is you % required to fly set at?

I'm expending and microing the airforce fully to try to inflict as many casualties as possible in '41. It costs me nothing. Percent required to fly is 0. I just want more and more interdictions.
I'm running many forward bases in pockets I have left.

Interdiction - oh goodie. Can someone tell me if only fighters fly interdiction do they do anything? Does interdiction cause casualties or does it slow down the enemy.

Put your % at 5% . But you are going to be running your air into the ground doing this & can be taken advantage of by your opponent if they know what they are doing.

Fighters fly escort. Yes, interdiction causes casualties & can slow down enemies.

Hmm, still no good results with adjusting the values. What's the right setting to get as many interdictions as possible?

CBA to post a screenshot but every plane flies during the day and interdiction is at 50-50.

Early on Soviet airforce may not work as desired due to low quality and other problems. I think later in the war interdictions are not so uncommon, if someone wishes to launch them, but they usually result in interdiction force being slaughtered for little gain.
