I feel that fighters on escort mission should not be allows to participate in ground attacks. They are already not allowed to attack ships. So why should they be allowed to attack airfields? I've felt this way for a while but I just experienced a battle that I thought was just wrong and it brought it back to mind.

I attacked Curry with 22 Zeros on Guadalcanal.  My goal was to thin his CAP a bit before my bombers hit. Instead I destroyed 15 planes, 12 of them on the ground. With fighters like that who needs bombers. But even I felt those results were just wrong. They were on an escort mission so they carried no bombs. Plus he had a CAP which makes the damage results even more unrealistic. So I think some changes are in order.


Ideally and realistically, I think the only time fighters should only be allowed to make ground attacks is when there is NO CAP.  And even when there is no CAP and they are allowed to attack, damage should be limited since they are only firing machine gun. However, I don't know how much programming is involved. For a simple option I'm in in favor of just eliminating escorting fighters from ground attacks all together.
