Running out of External Fuel Tanks and TGPs on Day two of the Campaign
I’m playing the Balkans Campaign (forgot the Operation Name :rolleyes: ) where the Kosovo Strike Task Force (CVN71) is available and am flying the Hornet Squadron. At day 2 I’m out of external Fueltanks and TGPs for the Hornets. I assumed there is new stuff coming in with the Resupplies that are listed on the Status Page but I can’t seem to see what the Resupply really delivers.
My first mistake was having the Flight Fragging set to the HQ for my Squadron which probably caused an awful lot of Ordnance wasted.
Then again we’re the Squadron with the most A-G kills and we’ve taken out all enemy Airbases so Air Superiority is on our side.
We’ve lost 2 of our F-18s but somehow that doesn’t explain why we’re out of TGPs. I thought every piece of equipment that get’s back to the base will be available for future use?!
Just curious about the Resupplies, how do they work?!
edit: Sorry, should have used a better title.
I’m not sure if resupply is working right. You can use mission commander to resupply one or all munitions for a squadron.
That would make sense.
Gotta use the mission commander then.
Thanks for your opinion, cougar!
running out of TGPs might be an issue, I’ll have a look tonight.
but running out of drop tanks completly makes sense.
AI goes, get’s threatened, PANIC. there went two fuel tanks.
Not only TGP, drop tanks, but also Jammer pod as well.
given the likely resupply scenarios and limited availability IRL this probably adds realism. work around it!
FLIRs break…a lot. If the coders have done their modelling well there is some failure rate incorporated into supply status. And/or tasking by other squadrons in your Campaign/Theater.
Also - if you are planning missions to jett tanks as SOP…that is why you are running out of EFTs. Tanks are always to be brought home!
