The idea behind is that i realized that, whenever an attack occurs on a TF (or an land base), the whole CAP is committed against the attack, even if the odds are completely unbalanced and this may lead to serious problems later.

I mean, i had once some 13 air units as a CAP and the incoming attack had only 4; but all the 13 went after; a phase later, another raid went on but my CAP was much less efficient (50% of chance for the fighters no to have ammunitions left) and i was unable ot set up a good interception of this raid.
The same is the odds are against me: in this case, maybe better to pass and wait for better times!

So i wish i would have the option to choose during the combat which air units are going to intercept ans which are not.

BTW, how air-air combats are resolved? I did not find this information either.

This is no Harpoon, but I wish it were.... Very Happy


BTW, there is a combat resolution table which decides the air combat outcome and it is determined by, iirc, how many CAP presence.

Yes this was on my plan

Actually, the AI is already using this feature.
It was added in order to limit the CAP depletion at Rabaul agains the large and repetitive air strikes. and historial by the way 

If to be implented by the player, it could be done as a predefined settings a bit like the surface battles
(ex: avoid combat if fighting as 1 against 2)

The other improvement for the CAP
- do land CAP is they are able if enough fuel to stay until nighfall
- define the last landing time. By default 19:40

Well, it would be great, all the more if the AI already does it.

Currymutton, thanks for the information; do you know where this table can be found?

Well, you better ask BR for the table <grin>


It is hidden somewhere under the hood and it was mentioned a couple of times in this forum, iirc.


Sorry!
