Convoy escort advancement

Post by ncc1701e »

One question regarding Convoy escort advancement.

Right now, I can search Convoy escort advancement for UK, USA and USSR.

Do I need to search it for all three countries?
Does the game know that this escort is from USA and thus has this advancement level?
Does it count in the combat results?

Thanks

Does convoy escort advancement only affect surface ships with this technology, or also the escorts that are assigned to convoys?
My native language is Spanish, and no English language mastery, sorry.

Only units that have that advancement in their name. All advancements only affect units build with that name. Escorts are an exception as they are not on map. So Convoy escorts will affect off-map escorts and ships build with the "convoy escort advancement", but not other ships.
