Partial Escort - 3/27/2021 9:05:36 AM

I try to plan my bombing runs with escorts and noted the "partial escort" option. This is what the manual says:
Part ESC: Toggle link to yes or no partial escorts. If set
to yes, than escorts that cannot fly all the way to the target
are counted as escorts for meeting the minimum and
requested number of escorts for the strike. If set to no,
then only escorts that can fly to the target will count for
these purposes

Does this mean if I click partial escort the escort number shown will change depending on the escorts range, meaning if they can or cannot cover all bombers? In my ingame tests the escort number shown doesnt change though.

The routine will only take partial escorts (if you allow this option) if it can't allocate enough escorts who can reach the target zone.

You are right that those partial escorts are then treated as meeting the minimum numbers needed but usually they will only be selected if you can't fully cover the mission.

there are a few quirks that can effect the ratio between these 2 parts of the escort allocation, in particular leadership rolls may affect the number of planes actually committed after the initial choice is made but mostly that should be marginal.

bigger issue worth thinking of - long range missions and using up all the air mileage tends to trigger much higher operational losses. So its worth asking yourself if the mission is really needed, you may end up with a few lost/damaged planes as a result simply for pushing to the edge of your range.
