While waiting for this new Strategic Command release. I have been modding an earlier version of the game, and I just noticed,that in the previous version off the game, in the 1939 Scenario, the German Fighters are listed as Luftflotten or ( Air Fleets ) my point is this, Luftflotten consist of a mixed of different aircraft rolls, which include Bombers etc. The fighters should be named after Jagdgeschwader (Fighter wings) see explanation below. Does the new game list them correctly now?


Jagdgeschwader (Fighter wings) (JG) were single-seat day fighter Geschwaders (literally "hunting wings"), typically equipped with Bf 109 or Fw 190 aircraft flying in the fighter or fighter-bomber roles, with only the later war JG 7 and JG 400 wings (and the jet specialist JV 44 unit) using much more advanced aircraft by 1944-45, with JG 1 working up with jets at war's end. A Geschwader consisted of groups (Gruppen), which in turn consisted of Jagdstaffel (fighter squadrons). Hence, Fighter Wing 1 was JG 1, its first Gruppe (group) was I./JG 1, using a Roman numeral for the Gruppe number only, and its first Staffel (squadron) was 1./JG 1. Geschwader strength was usually 120 – 125 aircraft.

If you list them correctly as JG's then you would have about 60 of them, wouldn't you ? So it would seem to be better to separate the Luftflotte into the correct unit types, for example 'Luftflotte I Fighters' for a Me-109 unit and 'Luftflotte I Tactical Bombers' for Stuka's. Also, you don't need the editor to rename units, it can be done right in the game

Wouldn't it be nice if we could get one level of ground attack into our fighter tech sphere to simulate fighter-bombers?

Of course there would be the resulting decrease in arial attack and defence factors for choosing the upgrade.

I've been kinda quiet on the forum but busy behind the scenes playtesting and updating my previous Advanced Third Reich mod to this new version of the game and editor.

Players familiar with the old editor will find the new editor very similar, just with lots more stuff. When the time is right, we can share more details and talk about it. For now, rest assured that it's all good, very good.

Hi Bill as always I trust your judgement and I don't know where you find the time to work on games,I see you are also busy working on EMPIRES IN ARMS. Your dedication is amazing may the force be with you always.
