re plane exports: Yes they drove me nuts when I was doing production tests, as I never knew they existed, so they were included in the logistics reports. So it looks like they are getting priority, and I agree, we could do with knowing in advance rather than in arrears. I will put this in the suggestion box.
edit: At the very least we can maybe get an addenda chart showing exports.
Thanks! A chart would be great! Presently some planes and tanks aren't even shown in the 'to be produced/imported' mode in the production screen.
Not sure I'd want to spend the planes to modernize the Romanian air force. There might be a fair number of squadrons, but the experience is mostly mediocre at best. Giving a good plane to a pilot with 40-50 experience seems like a worse idea than giving it to a pilot with 70-80 experience.
Its a question of gaming style. Romanian, Hungarian and Slovakian figthers provide local fighter defence, although the best Romanian Squadrons are posted up front (there are 70 rated experienced units). Bombers are useful too, especially since down South they tend to meet low interception levels and so gain some experience. Recon units are useful at any experience level... Besides most of the planes in question are really old or hand me downs from the Germans and Italians and therefore would just sit there 'rotting' the in the pools. If I can send those guys in a decent plane up there rather than in some stringy biplane, its enough for me!
Yes, as the game doesn't assume any units will be destroyed at a certain time for the Axis or Soviets, so only historical arrivals and withdrawals are included, not fixed arrivals of units that were destroyed but rebuild at a certain point.
But what is the point? German units can be rebuilt and there is no guarantee that they remain in game (ex an infantry division that is present in Barbarossa is destroyed in 1942, but can be rebuilt and then mandatorily withdraws in 1944.
But say a Hungarian or Romanian division gets destroyed and is not rebuilt because???? Such units can only serve on the Eastern front and a degree of rebuilding did take place in real life)... Ok I'm going to stop whining...
