For a long while I've been hearing that the Allied production numbers are just a portion of what the Allies get each month and that the incoming groups have a lot of extra planes that change the scope of the Allied OOB considerably. I finally had some time to explore this further.

I counted up the incoming group numbers, then calculated the production number for all nations throughout the war, including the Soviet numbers only for 45. For incoming US Navy groups I counted only the CVE replenishment groups, not the normal operating CV groups as the Japanese side also gets filled out groups for the CVs. This is really an assessment of how to think about the numbers to be able to compare the sides capabilities throughout the campaign.

Someone may have done this before, and I might have done a lot of work for nothing, but it was interesting and I learned a bunch. Here it is.

Agreed, very useful.... even more so in a spreadsheet if anyone fancies doing it.

A shame due to the 'flexibility' of the Empire's production there can be no comparison for production.

Well, that is the next part. I'd like to go back from my own IJ games and do an 'average' production count, and then there could be some discussion as to what flexibility would be possible and likely given different scenarios and situations.

Don't forget that there are many, many groups that have to be withdrawn - often losing their planes.

I have only played the Allies a few years back, so I don't remember exactly how many, but I know there are some. Only a portion are 'disband only' though, right? Even of those isn't it often possible if planned in advance to 'save' many of those planes or substitute an obsolete airframe type to be lost?

In practice not so easy as you need to completely fill the TOE of a withdrawing air unit to salvage what may well be a partial TOE of a frontline plane. Plus arriving groups don´t necessarily arrive with a filled TOE.

Wow! Amazing effort Erik. This should be stickied in the war room.

I will certainly refer to this thread the next time I see the not so unusual "don´t forget the allies gets twice their production in incoming groups"

Well, at first I was going to make some sort of snide remark about you having too much time on your hand and in sore need of a girlfriend. But after reading through the numbers found your charts to be very informative and useful. So, thanks and just forget about that girlfriend..

Thanks for the hard and useful work on this, Erik. Now, I'm looking forward to seeing you (and others) analyze the data to draw conclusion. I'm one of those Allied players convinced that the pool limitations are radically unfair to the Allies. Is that right or does the information prove differently? (I think it's right.)

Here is a spreadsheet with stock allied air production on it. Maybe we can graft this data into it.

Well, we're engaged now, so I have a bit more time until the 'planning' begins in ernest.

I am a teacher, so these first few weeks of summer I can do some things at leisure before my other projects are in full swing.

Walloc (Rasmus) pointed out that I've not included the upgrade to the P-38 line factory for the next model. If the Allied players can confirm this is how it works then I'll adjust those numbers.

Also, Alfred mentions that some groups don't come with complete TOE for the Allies? I had thought the arriving groups were complete, unlike the Japanese where they routinely come with 2 planes.

I'd like to get the details more or less correct, but now also get up some estimates for the Japanese side, which will come in the next day.


quote:

PRODUCTION - JAN 43 through DEC 43

FIGHTERS

USAAF
P-38G
20/month x 5 months = 100

P-38H
20/month x 6 months = 120

P-38J
10/month x 1 month = 10

As its 3 seperate factories in LA they will upgrade and continue to produce. U set it up as replacements(stopping at X date), not production aka once the G stops u dont add the 20 G model that will upgrade to the H model and keep producing and so on.

So IMO it should look like this, not counting in that factories doesnt necesarrily upgrade on day one. So while overall numbers are right the individual numbers of each model can vary depending on day of upgrades in each different game.

P-38G
20/month x 5 months = 100

P-38H
40/month x 6 months = 240

P-38J
50/month x 1 month = 50

Kind regards,

Rasmus

Later there are lots and lots of bomber groups which are just HQ cadre. Two planes.

Wow, and I've never gotten planes in October 41! How did you do that?

It's been so long since really playing through the Allied side for me I'm not sure how often groups arrive unfilled, but most Allied players have mentioned that the groups usually do come complete and from what I can remember that seems right. That was the entire reason for starting this process.

If there is more variability in this then I guess this list is not as useful as I'd hoped.

Since this is only fighters though, is that also true of fighter groups?

Hi Erik

There's a glitch in your 1945 figures, you reported the reinforcements for 44 (893) instead of those for 45 (1676), the total is correct, though.

I think you have the figures in Tracker plane production tab: under the TBO.YTA column, you two figures : the total number of planes, and the number you need to build, the difference is the number of planes that arrive as reinforcements throughout the game. For instance, in scen 2, the british avenger II are 0 (12), which mean the twelve of them arrive as reinforcements.

In my opinion, there is no need to take withdrawing squadrons into account. The point of this analysis is to show what kind of losses the Allies can sustain before having to cut operations down. If you reach that level, as the allies, your squadrons will withdraw empty anyway.

1942 ... stupid fat fingers.

I'd have to check if they were all bombers, or some fighter groups.

Just did a fast check at the USAAF F unit arriving in '42. Only 5 arrived with the full 25. Actually one had 32. Others vary much. 23, 18/17, 12, 6 , 2 being the most common numbers that the different groups arrives with. If u want it accurate then i fear u hafta go through them individually.

Thanks. I'll correct that. The first was without the Soviets I think and I didn't change the top number.

Yeah, all of this has been done without tracker so far as I just wanted to dig through the groups first and do it manually. Kind of let me get a feel for it. I also have more trouble 'seeing' the details in tracker, simply due to the visuals. I don't do as well with things that look like spreadsheets.

I'll check it out though as I continue.

Insteresting.

I wonder if there is variability in these numbers or if they always come the same, for instance if one P-40E unit always arrives with 12 out of 25?

Nice work, obvert! One kind of knows that there is a lot in the queue all the time, but seeing these totals black on blue still gives a different feel to it. And this is only the F part, the bombers are surely just as impressive.

Many Allied fighter squadrons in 43 arrive without a full complement. A good example are teh FM-1 equipped squadrons which arrive even before "production" starts.

I had always assumed that arriving understrength squadrons had something to do with depleted pools....but quite possibly I made this up.

I took a quick look in the editor and it does seem there are some that don't arrive as full. I won't be able to edit to each partially full unit, but I'll have a look later at tracker and the Editor again and see if it's possible to approximate the numbers better.

In the meantime I'll be working toward an 'average' Japanese production schedule.

This is missing P-38L production which would be 80 planes/month beginning with 44/06 until wars´ end.

P-38J production is 50 planes/month beginning with 43/12 for 6 months, thats 300, not 50.

Then theres P51B production beginning 44/03 @ 30/month, after that P51D beginning 44/11 @ 120/month (the upgrading B plus the 90 D R&D), after that the P51H beginning 45/09 @ 250/month (the upgrading D plus the 130 H R&D).


Great effort obvert, but the xls linked by Skyros practically covers everything already.




Edit: Should there still be doubt: Yes, the factories upgrade to the most recent model at production start date immediately and completely. So for example all 50 P-38J change to L version on 44/06, adding to the 30 R&D, resulting in a total per month production of 80 beginning 44/06.
