I believe we see several divisions in the AAR fighting as brigade / regiment size units in the same location.
 
Would the separate elements fight more effectively / absorb replacements faster as a division compared to individual elements?
 
If not why?

Elf - please explain!

4 x Ki-21-IIa Sally bombing from 1200 feet (12th Sentai / 3rd Air)
Airfield Attack: 4 x 250 kg GP Bomb
4 x Ki-21-IIa Sally bombing from 1200 feet (98th Sentai / 3rd Air)
Airfield Attack: 4 x 100 kg GP Bomb

4 - planes with 250 kg = 1000 kg
4  -planes with  100 kg  = 400 kg

Why do the same bombers on the same mission carry 600 kg less in bombs?

How do you get more hits with 4 - 100 kg bombs Vs. 4 - 250 kg bombs?



Extended range? Sometimes we play around with things just to see how things pan out.

It's not extended range, I'm responding the the following from Elf.

quote:

We needed a way to better represent the missionized loadouts that LBA (Particularly IJ side) carried. More smaller bombs equate to more "hits" against non-naval targets and are less concerned with AP capability than spreading effects over a larger unarmored area. There are behind the scene checks that determine what loadout is used. Not at liberty to divulge the details of this yet.


How is 4 100 x kg bombs more than 4 x 250 kg bombs, and how do you get more hits (4 bombs = 4 hits max!)?

4 x 100 is the extended range load. Andy would have to confirm, but in the early going IJAAF ops from Indochina is difficult owing to the inability to get all your A/C crammed into the closest AF without being penalized. These Sally's are likely from one of the further AFs and carry 4x100kg bombs vice the 250's.

It isn't, it's less. A/C carry smaller loads at extended range.
