So should the Soviet keep these smaller Corps HQ or not ? (Baltic, Moscow PVO, Black Sea...) Better to disband them? I'm not even sure one can disband them.
AIUI, you can disband any airbase that a) isn't frozen, b) hasn't moved or c) has had plans flown to it (transferred from other base or assigned to it from the national reserve) or d) hasn't had any of its air plane regiments to have performed any sorties from it yet during the turn if you have the AP to pay 1 point for each disbanding of an airbase AFAIK.
(The only sort of exception is that the SAD and the 1 SAB airbases start to be automatically disbanded by the AI from around T34 at the rate of 3 per turn for free, at no AP cost to you like what happens to NKVD Security Regiments or Mot Rifle Divs converting to truckless Rifle Divs etc, I think.)
Only the Corps level air HQs can be disbanded which is really only the two PVO ones, (plus the four BAK Long Range group Corps HQs) while all the others such as Moscow, Baltic Sea & Black Sea Air Fleet Commmand HQs are actually Army level (XXXX) HQs and thereby can't be disbanded, at least in my copy of the game!
People have recommend eliminating certain air elements to save trucks, lower supply demands etc, I think they mostly must be referring to the airbases under these non-front Army air HQs, but some probably do remove both the PVO Corps HQs and their types of airbases underlings. Correct me if I'm wrong...
