Air mileage in bad weather - 2/10/2020 4:37:53 AM

I'm noticing that if I fly air missions in bad weather - mud or snow but especially blizzard - my planes seem to accumulate miles flown at a much higher rate. Is there anything that anybody can point me to in the manual that explains this?

16.1.5. Air Missions and Weather Impact
Whenever an air mission is attempted in bad weather, defined as mud, snow and blizzard, there is a chance it will be scrubbed and not
take place. If the air mission is scrubbed, the air group unit's miles flown will be increased by one, which will prevent the unit from
flying the air missions that require that no missions were flown earlier in the turn (16.3.1). With the exception of Finland, all Axis air
group units will suffer the full effects of weather. Soviet and Finnish air group units will have less chance of suffering weather effects.
Air missions attempted in snow and mud have a forty percent chance of being scrubbed. The probability of a scrubbed mission
increases to eighty percent during blizzard weather. If the air group unit does conduct the air mission, the distance flown will be
multiplied by four in blizzard conditions and by two in mud or snow conditions. The number of individual aircraft aborting will also
increase in bad weather, with blizzard conditions making it twice as difficult to fly as snow or mud. As with all air missions, the mileage
flown will be modified based on the number of ready aircraft in the air group unit that actually flew, but the weather mileage penalty
will apply, so the result will be fewer aircraft flying, but more miles expended per aircraft.
