RE: 2x 1000lbs bomb fighters

<t> Yes, I have plenty of pilots that I've trained for Air, LGround, and Strafing (and some have lowNav as well). I used 2-3 of the USWestCoast fighter sqds to train from the start of the game on (and I'm in '44 now).<br/> <br/> A game mechanics question: If I put Hellcats or Corsairs at 10-15k alt ...

2x 1000lbs bomb fighters

<t> So I've just entered '44 as the Allies in my PBEM. While scrolling through my upcoming aircraft production pools I've noticed that I get a number of fighters capable of carrying two 1000lbs bombs (iirc, the P47d25, a certain Corsair model, a Hellcat model, and the P38-L I believe). <br/> <br/> N...

RE: Lost CD

<t> I should also say that I still have the game installed on my older desktop computer, but the wife has completely taken it over with her photography. I want to install the game on my laptop so I can still play my PBEM. So if there is anyway to just copy/paste a few files to the 2nd computer and r...

Lost CD

Wasn't sure where to put this, but I can't for the life of me find my WITPAE CD. I can find the box and the manual, but CD is missing. Is there anywhere to download? I still have the registration key.

thanks

Issue with night fighters

<t> PBEM game. I sent my P-70 squadron to Burma where I'm mostly night bombing since my opponent has a marked air superiority in late 42. They have good EXP, and good Air/Def skills, and the leader is a good and one with 60-something in aggression (all the important pilot ratings are close to, or ab...

RE: Silent Service Management: Best Sub Tactics

<t> I have very similar patrol patterns: tight 3-hex triangle patterns where possible, or 3 in a row in areas like Malay Straits. I try to avoid single hex patrol patterns because they tend to get an ASW TF sitting on the same hex pretty quickly. In larger deep-sea areas, where I'm not sure of exact...

RE: Usual split for 2 allied players?

<t> Yeah, that's the normal split. Sometimes the Brit/Indian/China/Dutch player will also take over Aussie units, particularly if the Japanese opponent(s) focus all their efforts in SoPac/SWPAC (like so many do) just as a way to stay involved in some of the action. <br/> <br/> Another split I've see...

RE: another disaster

Took me 9 days, but I finally read all 220 pages of this AAR. Now I find that it's completely halted because of some flaw/bug/whatever... man what a let down! Hopefully it gets remedied soon so you guys can go back to entertaining the rest of us.

RE: Burma Question

<t> I agree with others here...<br/> <br/> Send the Wasp to Sydney. Though you might be able to set Wasp in the shipyard to "critical" (x3 space usage) at Cape Town, but that doesn't always have much of an affect... ie., 214 days of repair at normal setting, 213 days of repair at critical setting.

RE: In the Trenches at 21K Feet

<r> I notice during that attack run that at least one of his squadrons was made up of SBD-2s which are an earlier, unarmored version of the SBD-3. SBD-2s also have longer range, thus his ability to carry 1000lb bombs for this strike. My guess is that if he's still flying SBD-2s off his CVs, that his...

RE: In the Trenches at 21K Feet

<t> It will definitely hurt to lose the planes and pilots, but as long as he didn't go and upgrade squadrons left and right, he probably can accept those losses. The Wildcats (both 3s and 4s) are probably the roughest to replace. Warhawks, particularly the K model, have good replacement rates, so he...
