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.
Make it so!
