    Just wondering;
    If i put for example the P-38L as "ALL" in one of its classes.dat files in the DGen folder, will it have that class also in the BerlinAir44 and BalatonAir44 campaigns. Or can i write my classesUSA.dat file as below if i want campaign specific roles; for instance P_38L ALL for all campaigns in the career and then the line P_38L BerlinAir44 FIGHTER to make an exemption from "ALL" in the BerlinAir44 campaign.
    Anyway, here's what i'm considering turning my classesUSA.dat file into:

    P_38L ALL
    P_38LLate ALL
    P_47D10 ALL
    P_47D22 ALL
    P_47D27 ALL
    P_51D20NA FIGHTER
    P_51D5NT FIGHTER
    P_51B FIGHTER
    P_51C FIGHTER
    A_20G GROUND
    B_25J1 GROUND
    P_39Q1 ALL
    P_39Q10 ALL
    P_63C ALL
    SPITFIRE9C LIGHT
    SPITFIRE9CCLP LIGHT
    SPITFIRE9E LIGHT
    SPITFIRE9ECLP LIGHT
    SPITFIRE9EHF FIGHTER
    P_38L BerlinAir44 FIGHTER
    P_47D10 BerlinAir44 FIGHTER
    P_47D22 BerlinAir44 FIGHTER
    P_47D27 BerlinAir44 FIGHTER
    P_38LLate BalatonAir44 FIGHTER
    P_47D10 BalatonAir44 FIGHTER
    P_47D22 BalatonAir44 FIGHTER
    P_47D27 BalatonAir44 FIGHTER

    And while i'm writing, here are a few other questions. I'm wondering about the dates of service entry in the ETO(don't want to be to historically incorrect)of the follwoing aircraft.

    The different P-47&P-51 versions and the P-38L Late.

    I also wonder about the P-39Q-1/Q-10&P-63C. Where they used by the USAAF and/or RAF in the ETO and if that is the case, when did they enter ETO service?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, since there doesn't seem to be any replies i'll test my idea and see what happens.
    I'll post about the results when i'm finished.

    Results are in;
    I tested three campaigns in the P-47 career.
    With my appropriate classes.dat file set as described in the initial post.

    Normandy,P-47D27;2 intercept missions,1 recon mission, one more intercept mission and then the evidence that it's not "FIGHTER" in the Normandy campaign;a train strafing mission.

    BerlinAir44,P-47D27:Five escort missions in a row,also five escorts in a row in the BalatonAir44 campagin with the P-47D27.

    Conclusion:
    Either it is actually possible to set plane classes for specific campaigns where i want it to be different from the class i've given it "generally" in the career, or, the BerlinAir44 and BalatonAir44 campaings are programmed to always be "FIGHTER" campaigns, regardless of what class i'm trying to give my planes in it.

    Either way, i'm happy with the results.
