Starshoy, a question....

You said you were planning on having B-17 escort missions as airstarts. Could you make it an option, so those of who wish can still take off? I have a good trim tactic that helps me gain height quickly. Also, why not try having the B17s do a circle first so escorts can catch up? If possible?

Also, I`ll ask Oleg this but could you make it so that bombs/rockets are LIMITED in suppy. For example if you take too many losses overall in Campaign the supply of bombs may simply not be available, therefore aborting bombing missions or reducing the amount carried, available to the squad?

It would add to the realism...

In his excitement to get Ordnance info for Oleg, Hawker made a bit of a mess at the local Library....

Regarding airstarts - they are airstarts now - except situations where you are based in Normandy or Ardennes and are tasked with escorting B-17s arriving from England, Italy, etc. It looks like this mission type does not make a lot of sense. So I plan to simply remove it. May be escorting relatively low flying B-25s in this situation would make more sense.

Regarding weapons - I do not model supply of ammunition and fuel because there is no way to lock your configuration (disable editing it).
After all, what will it mean practically - that there won't be more than X bombing raids? I am not sure it is worth it.
