View Full Version : No Close Airfields for reconoissance patrols

I wonder if anyone can help? I am playing the Norwegian Campaign in SH4 with the following.. TMO,OM,RSRDC,UBM Mission pack and Spaxs speech. The player is supposed to be able to use the Luftwaffe for scouting for contacts but there are no Bases anywhere near the Arctic coast, the nearest being down near Bergen. Is this correct or should there be bases further north as there actually was in the war.
When stationed near the western approaches, if requested, aircraft from bases in France cover this area and find contacts.

Should be some bases further north than Bergen
http://www.nuav.net/ooblw.html is not a bad reference
As is http://www.ww2.dk/
Dowly will probably be able to give you a good idea of where and strengths
Him and his planes and all

Thanks for the reply. Obviously there were airfields up there in reality as the poor sods on the Arctic convoys used to get tracked and bombed by them. What I was wondering though was should there be airfields there in the game or on the map and for some reason they are missing from my installation? If yes, how can I put them there?

Airbases with search assets come on line at different times. You will start seeing bases after April 1942.
