1. Playing BTR for the Luftwaffe I face a problem while trying to attack escorted bomber formation. I target the escort with my light fighters whereas heavy fighters attack the bombers. However any fighter attacks the first enemy aircraft it meets, no matter of its type. So light fighters often attack bombers and heavies engage the escorts, both cases are true disaster. Is it possible to order the interceptors to attack ONLY the targeted type of enemy planes?

2. In reality the Germans since mid-1943 faced fuel shortages and pilot training courses suffered the most. Would be nice to control the proportion of fuel for combat units versus fuel for pilot schools and thus model the trade-off between avgas+time and pilot quality+quantity.

There is no guarantee that the interceptors will always follow the doctrine that you set for them. I think it would be unrealistic to force it completely (pilots will tend to do whatever actions will not get them killed at the moment) but maybe we can increase the chances that they do follow the doctrine. Try setting patrols with different doctrines and time their interception to first force the escorts to break away, and then release the heavy fighters against the bombers.

First of all a great thanks for the new patch, then two questions:
1) Given the presence of many German "what if" aircraft like the Ta 152, the Ta 184, the Go 229 or the Do 335, I wonder if it is not possible to insert the B-29 inside the Allied Oob like in the Turner's Focke-Wulf mod. I think it would be very interesting to see the Superfortress clash with the new German planes
2) I'm playing an Eagle Day 1941 campaign. It's the 15th turn and I noticed that a couple of days ago at the Baginton airport, appeared the 308th Polish Squadron which, according to the OOB, should arrive in 39 days
Best regards

1 No can do due to limitations that I agreed to with Matrix before this party got started.

2 Send me or preferably simovitch a saved game before it showed up and after, if possible.

It is a sad thing to know about these limitations, but if these are the agreements there is nothing to be done, perhaps, one day, someone will make a new mod with the B-29. Regarding the saved game I have only the 15th turn, but I don't know how to send it to you or Simovitch, sorry, but I'm a little clumsy. The 308th was completely operational and I used it in the 14th turn, then I checked the Oob and by pure chance I noticed that it should have arrived a lot later.
Best regards

Figured out the problem. 308 is at Baglinton and there should not be a delay. Also it is assigned to 11 Group and should be with 12 Group. I have made the changes. So well done Mappo, that was a good catch.

Glad to have been helpful to you and this awesome game

The weather.
There are a few areas to look at
1) wind direction. Currently it is NW to SE. Prevailing winds in Europe are WSW to ENE. In winter and early spring occasionally North winds or east winds.
2) weather forecast. There is currently none. The allies put huge resources into this, they got good at it. Game has nothing.
3) Historically the weather in winter of 43 was much better than current campaign 43 allows. Maybe this could be looked at.
4) glitches! Sometimes if there is no aircraft flying the clouds reset. Gaps dissappear this plays havoc w mission planning. Seems to be a programming issue. Doesn't happen a lot but when it does it destroys gameplay.
