I am playing the grand campaign as axis atm and I have found out that scout planes do not need fighter support. I am in turn 4 and not one of my recon planes got shot though the russian sent fighters Does it get riskier later in the game?

The Soviet fighters do get better - but so do your recon.

For Axis the single seat fighter is their most valuable resource with the most riduclously low production. By contrast Axis has gazilions of recon. Even if the Soviet side could shoot down lots of recon I would be happier losing that than 1 single seat German fighter. So escorting Axis recon is a very silly thing to do. The case for the Soviet Union where they produce so little recon on the other hand is very different.

I'll throw in a data point. For Soviets on turn 3, I flew 154 unescorted recon flights, usually against German interception, and lost 7 SB-2 Rcn. 12 of 17 turn air losses among all planes were operational, 2 were air combat, and 3 were FlaK. So unescorted reconing is probably okay, as you don't need 150 recon flights every turn once the lines settle more.
