Anthony, I would add that when you modify the scenario for aircraft models, you should remember that aircraft arrive in several ways: (1) in the Starting Pool (on the aircraft's starting date), (2) from monthly "Builds" which usually (but not always) represents off or non-map factories, (3) from monthly production of on-map factories, (4) from arriving air units (land-based & shipboard) that already have a number of aircraft assigned at arrival.
(5) in the cargo of arriving allied convoys. These are added to the pool.
The maximum pool size, before #2 deliveries are suspended, is documented.
Maybe that is the answer - changing the pool number does not mean the aircraft are added to the pool, it just changes the maximum size?
I'm tending to "no" - it is a function of X months x monthly replacement rate in the pool, puts a moratorium on arrivals as replacements via Dan's type #2. Other arrival methods are unaffected.
So, for example, if the OP dumped 600 P40E in the pool against a monthly replacement rate of say 50, he liekly hit that moratorium number.
Looking for the reference did remind me that allied 4E bombers cost 18 x 4 = 72 HI to bring into the pool. So much for turning off allied HI to save fuel.
