Hi there guys...
I was just planning a good bbq at Hamburg in my glorious '44 campaing and I noticed a lot of uncertainties. I tried 2 bomber streams. One using my good ol' pathfinding mosquitos B.IV with incendiaries to paint the target 10 minutes before the main raid came (that being 141 Hallifax at 20.064 feet). I performed recon before the raid and got Urban damage 63 over the target. After the raid apparently I fixed some of that as with a 0 day recon report it now stated 59 urban damage!
As urban damage has the slower damage repair in the game (0.5 per day) I'm assuming the data is incorrect until I fly another recon round. Is that it? The bombs were said to fall in Hamburg area so I think they were right on target.
Anyways fell free to tell me how you organize your raids and which planes as leads and altitudes. That would be great info! thx

I would definitely recon Hamburg again to get a more accurate damage assessment. You'd hope your raid hadn't fixed some of the previous damage!
I always send a series of bomber streams to the target, lead by a pathfinder squadron or unit with H2S. Keep each stream to about 2-300 bombers and get them to the target area at about the same time. I also try and change the approach of each of the streams to reduce "bomber creep".
