Just a small query. I know I need Avn Spt to fly missions. But do I need it for transit flights? I am looking at ferrying sdns around and some of the stops are so small and rear area, it seems a waste to leave a 16 Avn Spt BF there just to look after transit flights. Yes, I know I have smaller ones, Like Wren and Heron dets and the Port services dets but there are only so many of those to go around. And as I am moving Sdns of 16-25 a/c, obviously a det of 10 AVN Spt is not going to provide a full mission service. So, are Transit flights treated as missions and therefore need Avn Spt?

If the air unit has damaged aircraft, they will need AS to repair before they can continue on.

You don't need AV support for all the transiting planes, just enough to repair those that are left behind damaged when the unit moves to the next base. Accordingly, there are 9 Aussie RAN BF units (10 AV each) that can be bought out pretty cheaply (20 pp each).

Yes, what Kull said, although I believe he meant AS not AV.

And on the Japanese side there are a number of units with 8 AS that IIRC don't even (some do, if you wish) need to be bought out of restricted status.
