This actually sounds like a bug or at least a design flaw, but atm recon air units do not contribute to any of the TB requirements (ground, air day, air night or naval)
Is this by design? Doesn't make much sense imo. Air night sure, but all others should get some contribution from recon air groups I think
I did a quick test and recon appear to be treated as patrol a/c (at least for ground requirements in WE, but probably for all things). I thought they had some value. Since Transport air units and HQs have no value at the moment, we strongly encourage use of a house rule not to voluntarily transfer them out of a non-reserve TB or remove their transfer orders. Eventually we'll do something with this, but the house rule should suffice for now (the AI does not abuse this).
All understanding comes after the fact.
