Actually, I am learning WITM at the moment, but it is the same conceptual question.

Certainly, range is modeled.

Questions:

Is range and altitude modeled?

Is range and righter loiter time modeled?

Thanks.

time over target? Not really, the unit of time for the airwar is a day (or more strictly day/night), so the question is can the escorts or the fighter bombers reach the target. Regard the operational skills (& indeed different doctrinal solutions) as below the game scale.

altitude yes in various ways. The main obv ones are the interactions with flak/mission accuracy, but in fighter-fighter encounters altitude is a bonus. If you look at a report, air interception fighters (usually shown as patrol) are invariably above escort fighters.

edit - to emphasise the time issue note there is a special rule to reduce/enchance the impact of interdiction according to the month, so its made better in the summer and worse in the winter regardless of the basic weather effects
