The War Engine - Update Air Force Units

Air force units can be created in the same way as land based army units. Air force units can have up to 500 airplanes and can contain multiple types of airplanes.

Air force units are stationed at military airports and operate within a limited range around that base. It is possible to move air force units to a different airbase and it is possible that such units will be moved to a base in a conquered area in another country.

If an air force unit is moved to an airport in a conquered area, it operates within its range around the new airport wherever that airport is located.

Air force units must be supplied with ammunition, fuel and supplies. This takes place using supply units if the air force unit is located in the same country or can be reached by land and it requires air support units if the air force unit is located at a location that cannot be reached by land.

Air force units are effective against land targets, cities, military bases etc. and against military units and garrisons. The precision of the attacks and destruction power depends on several essential factors. The most important factor is the proximity of your land forces to the target the air force attacks.

If your army if not close to the target an air force unit attacks, the hit rate and destruction power of the air attack will be limited. Army units must be close to such a target to make the air force effective.

Another factor is the quality of the air force unit. The number of airplanes that participate in an attack is limited to the size of the air force unit and the quality of the unit and the quality of the ammunition become essential.

Destroying cities and other land targets is less important. Wars are not won by just flattening each and every target in sight. The air force is an essential force that supports land based units in their effort to block attacks or in conquering enemy territory.

The numbers as used in this description may be changed later.
