loutro -> Empty air bases, what to do (1/21/2021 6:54:13 PM)

Axis October 1941

I have moved air units from bases with only a few attached units to other airbases to max out their capacity. Now I have several empty airbases.

My questions are:

1. Should I disband the empty airbases to save manpower considering the upcoming blizzard and for next year?

2. Should I move them well back behind the front line?

3. Does either make a difference

Comments welcome

thanks

Fighters can still intercept reasonably well in inclement weather, and Soviet bombing of your bases is lessened. Level bombers can deliver supplies for their first mission, and Ju-52s can deliver fuel, for example, for your reserve armor formations. In 1942 you can start using adjacent-to-target airbases to avoid the 25-75% penalty for air delivery. See manual and the thread right under this one for details.

Airbases can be used to prevent partisan attacks on key hexes as well. And having more almost never hurts: the number of planes repaired is not just dependent on having sufficient air support. More air support over the required fixed planes faster.

Yes, just like in the real war where airbases were used to prevent partisan attacks. [:D]

Empty air base can be used as staging bases.
