Hi all, as Axis player in 1943 Long Campaign I have noticed that the Allies bombed several times two airports in southern Italy that did not exist on the map. One is called Nandurla, near Taranto, probably mistyped for Manduria. This one was effectively an italian german airfield, and after the armistice an USAAF airfield. The other ghost airport is that of Salerio, near Paestum, but in this case I found nothing about an airport with a similar name. Obviously nothing happens: no damage to the airport and no damage to the attacking planes.

For 1.05 We hopefully fixed all occurrences where the AI was using undefined or unactivated locations for one purpose or the other. These 2 airfields activate in late June 1944 for the Balkan air force (i.e. the allied Italian AF) but hopefully the allies will no longer target them.

Manduria already exists in the game for XV Fighter Cmd.

Hi.
I've hi-jacked this one for 'ghost' Italian pilots!
What happens to the Italian pilots who surrender to the Germans in Sept '43? Some such as Adriano Visconti (310 Aero Squadron) joined the air force of the RSI and are portrayed in the game. But he finds himself demoted a rank when he starts flying again. And what happens to his previous missions/kills? I know the game starts everyone at 0/0 for these figures but when these guys of the RSI come back into play, some would already have experience.
