Some recon aircraft have a max load above zero. How do those aircraft use it?

Also, I'm playing a campaign and when it starts four German Strat Recon groups (Do-17P-1) are set to night ops. Why, when you cannot do recon at night and they therefore remain unused. Am I missing something?

For the latter, it's an oversight. Probably just for flavor and historical accuracy but then wasn't removed after the mechanic was never implemented/doesn't work?

They were not recon on v1.01 - a later patch changed them to recon without changing their at start night setting. You can always change them to day missions settings. Until the patch which meant this change had to be at 0% miles and took you to 100% miles this was trivial. It is only putting the patches since with the original scenario data that this seems weird. But just means you need to leave them unused to change their day/night settings.

Thanks. All as I suspected.

The Do 17P were used for specialized night recon, too slow and vulnerable for day ops.

Should WitE then not allow them to fly recon missions at night? At the moment it will only allow us to fly recon in day missions?

Perhaps this would allow for less interception, but less powerful detection?

I have to admit I didn't know they were any night recon missions possible in ww2 given the tech for the time.

They used flash bombs to illuminate a target for a small time, sufficient for some photos.
