ORIGINAL: DanSez

So, conceivably, you could field Me 262s with some R&D thrown in by???
Historically Me 262s were flying in mid 44 IIRC.
Probably severely limited number of air units could upgrade, but still, a couple of Me 262 squadrons would beef up the defense of the Home Islands or the Philippines.




Yup. It's all in how you use the editor. I haven't really poked around with the editor much so I'm no expert. He has Italian, French, and German troops in this mod too. And ships. Look up in the combat report and you'll see a few French subs sticking it to my Japanese merchant ships with torpedoes...

Yeah, I noticed one of the better Italian fighters in the Sumatra/Malaysia air battles.

Hopefully he gets the files repaired so you can manage the economy. Without those screens it is unplayable other than a few turns for the spectical.

I enjoyed the youtube link you posted on the rare Allied float fighter/recon plane. Thanks.

In the mod, Joe added engines to the database for German/Italian air craft. He was told that the engines are hard-coded - he cant' add engines. So Joe is trying to fix the mod by removing the offending engines and assign Japanese engines to the axis air frames. Hopefully the changes will transfer to our current game else we will have to do a restart... I'm not sure how long this process will take but it sounds like not too bad - maybe a day or 2.

How many Whirlwinds will you get since the British only produced 112 because they found that their altitude limited perforrmance to low altitude was unacceptable as dog fights climbed to medium then higher altitudes.

Ahh - that's an easy question - zero. I'm playing the axis side.

I wish!!! Wouldn't that be cool - Japanese air groups flying captured allied aircraft?

Maybe next mod. The Germans did mainly for clandestine mission but one Italian fighter pilot flew P-38s and shot down a B-17.

I suppose you could mod it as a replacement unit of 1-3 AC that comes on the board in 43 or 44. I don't think there would be enough captured enemy AC to field an air group of 9 though. And 1-3 allied AC would not do anything in this game with the current air model.

So Joe is doing more changes to the mod. Engines for German\Italian air frames are being swapped out with Japanese engines as there is apparently no way to add additional types of engines to the game.

And it looks like Joe will add more air support as the base he used to start this mod with was a mod by JWE that reduced air support.

My guess is that we probably won't get to restart until the second week of August based on Joe and I comparing schedules.
