It sounds like you can make a Sentai into a Daitai, then they will attempt to build the unit up to strength based on what the definition of Daitai is.
Not exactly. Sizes of things changed over time. Squadrons would grow as the years rolled by. An airgroup might change the proportion of VF and VT. That sort of thing. A Hikotai could grow from 36 to 48 a/c, for example, and the player has the option of determining when this happens, and what the new size is, in the editor. Or, choose not to let the unit resize.
Player can also, independently set the maximum number of a/c for a unit. Even though that Hikotai could have 36 planes, the editor allows the OOB of the 4077 Hikotai to be set for a max of 27, for example. At some later time, defined in the OOB editor, the 4077 might resize to 48 planes, or 18 planes, or not resize at all.
Resize has supply and base size requirements and HQ in the chain. If these ain’t cool, you can’t resize.
[e] A lot of this stuff, like max a/c, is same as it ever was, there's just a lot more flexibility in changing airgroup sizes and the dates when it happens.
