PBEM game. I sent my P-70 squadron to Burma where I'm mostly night bombing since my opponent has a marked air superiority in late 42. They have good EXP, and good Air/Def skills, and the leader is a good and one with 60-something in aggression (all the important pilot ratings are close to, or above 70's). The base has a level 7 AF, with an HQa and about 3 times the required air support.
Seems like an ideal situation where a squadron would fly regularly. However, no matter what I do, they haven't flown but once in about 2-3 weeks of assigning them various missions. Sweep (both targeted and commander's discretion at between 1-10k altitude), escort, and CAP missions simply aren't flown. The only thing I DID get them to do was fly a 100ft sweep mission where they strafed an airfield, killed nothing but grass and lost 3 of their airframes. One of those missions was enough. I did get them to "show up" in the combat replay by assigning them LRCAP over an enemy base that I was bombing that night, however they didn't participate in the A2A rolls vs. enemy CAP and they weren't listed in the combat report, which I also found odd.
Any help? Is this a bug? Am I doing it wrong?
