I started the thread because my airforce was getting destroyed on the ground. Most other aspects of my air war are same as usual. Last turn I lost around 200 planes just on the ground. You couldn't always do that.

I do that all the time, but I choose my targets among future objectives for ground offensive to smooth them out a bit, not because they are more vulnerable, and if they happen to be both, well, all the better. I also do that with pocketed units to make them burn supplies faster. Finally, when I wish to have a little more info on enemy units than what normal recon can give, a good old bombing run sometimes does the trick.

The fact that the Soviets can bomb a lot is indeed a good balancing tool for their lack of recon.

You can hit fort levels with some effect too. I use big bombs for that, like the 1000 kg Ju-88As, which are not as efficient as dive, tacs and H111 on unfortified targets to begin with

Sorry to offtopic. But generally in 1.12 German fighters are 1-2 shot wonders then drop off with fatigue and aforementioned bugs. Against a persistent VVS you have to keep them out of MiG escort range (19 hexes).

Beware later on in 1941 the soviets get a plentiful supply of Hurricanes so you may want to extend that to 26 hexes. The very long range P-40Bs however you do not need to worry about.

...and the Soviets can use staging air bases too.

What happened to using an empty airbase well forward as a staging base?
