Aviation support available in strategic mode? - 2/21/2019 6:45:08 AM

I often wondered about the impact of a base force unit being in strategic mode on aviation support.
Situation: when I transfer base forces in strategic mode to a base they need 1-2 days to unpack. In real life this would result in no or only little aviation support provided by them until they have unpacked their stuff. But in game the base display shows the complete amount of aviation support points being available also for the units in strategic mode.
So up to now I immediately transferred planes up to the limit without waiting and didn't observe any noticeable disadvantage (but never did an experiment about it).
Does anybody know how this is handled by the game?

Unlike engineers who can't build or repair in strat, and I believe even in move mode, airplane mechanics seem to be able to work while loaded on trains or in trucks.


I self impose a limit of waiting until they are out of strat mode to fly planes in.

I don’t where you got the idea that in the real world a whole battalion just sits in the transports until
the last 60 typewriters are unloaded.

I was a Seabee in 1990. I’m a First Gulf War veteran. My Battalion was deployed to Guam to back-fill for a battalion deployed to the Gulf. The only reason my battalion did not deploy to the gulf is that our supply officer was able to unload our gear so fast that it was not practical to reload it.

We had the all critical gear we needed within two hours of the ship docking.

I had an electrician at my house about six months ago. He had a big truck but he did not unload the whole thing in my driveway before he went to work. He could get to what he needed.

I would add an adjustable wrench and screw drivers to that list.

A crescent wrench IS an adjustable wrench.

Sorry,
I wanted to say vise grips like in the video. I'm getting old.

I'll correct the post.

I'd argue that duct tape isn't actually fixing, it's just delaying. I really don't think I'm a tool snob, but you gotta use the right tool for the job (even if it's a basic version). My perspective is you can't be a functioning household in terms of basic tasks (hanging things on walls, taking a door off to painting, fixing the chain on a toilet handle, etc.) without a hammer, set of screwdrivers, a drill with a basic set of bits, and 2 sets of pliers (not vise grips). A basic saw and a sanding block also help. If you've got those, you're pretty well set for your basics, and if you live in an apartment forever that's all you'll ever need.

How is it you didn't mention Channellocks, Lokasenna?

Channellocks are not an essential tool.

There are only 12 essential tools:

Essential on the 12 tool list....I am not in agreement with all of it. I would trade in a flashlight for the needlepoint pliers. And while it does not fit in a toolbox - a drop cloth.

And the joke about the young ones not knowing how to use tools is fairly spot on. I had a couple of young tenants a few years ago that asked me to come over and fix the smoke detector because it was beeping - I kid you not. That said apparently their parents suggested they call the landlord.....

Mechanics Rule Number One: Get a bigger hammer.
Mechanics Rule Number Two: If it breaks, it needed replacement anyway.

Trick which is NOT gamey...I can start flying by transport planes a ground aviation support unit to a new base, and then change the destination to yet another base, and both of those bases will get support (as in real life) depending on how many air missions you delegated to the different airfields.
As in the rules, they will not be as efficient as a unit which has retained it's full strength, but when you MUST have more than one field, and you only have a single air support unit to spread around, it comes in handy.


As for "simple tools"....well I'm thinkin' of things like wedge,inclined plane, fulcrum, pulley, well, you get the idea...
