Mexico decided to send an "expeditionary air group" (a formal name for the
several elements of a single US squadron) to PTO in 1945. Only in action
briefly (stationed at the Clark AAB complex), it was remarkably successful.

Thanks

I decided to start it with P-47D25 (just out of production in Feb 45)
and upgrade to P-47E. It starts at San Francisco, its port of embarkation,
in a unit called FAEM/Escuadron 201 on 27 March 1945. It is under the
command of Col. Antonio Cárdenas Rodríguez (1905–1969). It is assigned to
5th Air Force Command. It would be under V Fighter Command if there was
one, but there isn't. It actually formed part of the U.S. 58th Fighter Group.

Excellent history. FWIW, the V Fighter Command is in the game. In stock it is unit 6784, starting as II Fighter Commander, changing name to V Fighter 4208.

The problem is that the name delay field is supposed to be a 6 digit entry. It seems that the II Fighter Command never changes it name. I have a game in February 1943 and it is still II fighter Command.
