Default Airpower OOB adjustments

I've made numerous adjustments to aircraft and air-delivered weapons in the USA OOB. Some increase capability, some decrease it. My attached OOB notes also add some detail to how airpower functions in winSPWW2 that isn't in the manual or MOBHACK editor.

While SP is primarily a ground-based game engine that treats airpower as a modified form of artillery, it can be made to work reasonably well as long as the limitations are recognized.

shouldn't this be in the Mods section?

It is now....

If you find you are constantly reacting to your enemy's tactics instead forcing the enemy to react to yours, you are losing the battle....

By 1944 most C-47s had been modified with self-sealing fuel tanks in their wings, as was standard for US bombers and fighters, while the C-46 never received this modification.

This is an interesting fact that I've found in my research.

Basically, in 1944 they made a decision to plan for a troop carrier version of the C-54 to equip airborne units in the Pacific since at the time, they thought that there was a possibility of a long range airborne operation in the PTO.

However, this foundered upon the rocks of changes:
  • Redesigning the C-54 wing would add 2,110 pounds to the weight of the plane.
  • Fuel capacity would be reduced from 3,601 gallons to 2,712 gallons.
  • Operational range of the C-54 would go from 3,700~ miles to 2,800~ miles.
  • It would take until Feb/March 1946 for the C-54s with changes to come off the line in quantity; at which point....a better aircraft would be along -- the C-82.

They chose instead to equip TCGs in the PTO with C-46s as an interim, since the C-82 Packet was coming in Early 1946, with integral self sealing fuel tanks 'baked into' the design and an operational range of 4,200 miles.
