Willaverill -> BB planes (12/17/2018 8:29:36 AM)

After Dec 7th took the planes off my damaged cruisers and bbs. After the ships were safe enough to send to the west coast I created a TF. I told the squadrons to load on the ships but couldnt. I ended up using an AV to send tje planes in the TF. Am I stuck with no ability to reassign the planes back?




GetAssista -> RE: BB planes (12/17/2018 8:55:51 AM)

You should've told the ships load the squadrons, not vice versa

Create Transport or Air transport TF out of ships with cargo capacity, order Load troops, select your squadrons. Ships load 1 unrestricted airgroup per ship, in a disassembled state.

Edit: ah, you meant the same ships, not just shipping airgroups to WC to reunite. Battledamage/docking it is, as the following posts note




Squamry -> RE: BB planes (12/17/2018 10:35:12 AM)

Check if the BBs were docked or not. You should be able to "Transfer to Ship" if the planes are not disabled and in range, but otherwise dock the BBs ND TRANSFER. The latter way will disable the planes.

Check the capacity on the ship. It may not be able to handle planes due to battle damage. Once repaired everything will be fine.

Yeah it is probably the damage.

My preference is to keep the BB observation dets in Hawaii, letting them train while their ships are repaired.

Reminder:

Set the pilots to train recon (Recn) first, not naval search (NavS). The primary task of the Pearl BBs (i.e. not fast BBs) when they're put back into action is as bombardment support and escort for amphib landings. Their float planes can act as spotters when set to recon, range 0, at night (bombardments are most often at night). Cruisers can take care of naval search for surface task forces and the BB floatplane crews can be trained in NavS once their recon is 70+.

I prefer ASW, as I'll use some ship FP units in this roll. Then again as Japan I do what the poster said with my sub float units.
