Have to agree with CPT Siddy on this one. The Axis has a ground attack aircraft menu with ordnance possibilities that dwarf those of the Pe-2, which carries about the same bomb package as a Bf 110E-2, and half that of a Ju 88 or He 111. I have screamed as long and hard as anybody that the Ju 88 should be present on Map1, and that the IL-2's VYa-23 kills tanks in a manner far out of proportion to historical record. The Pe-2 gunner issue has been debated numerous times, but this campaign, 3+ years into the TAW saga with an unchanged Pe-2 plane set, is the first time I've seen complaints that there are too many Pe-2s or that they're too fast to catch.
What I infer from Kathon's charts is that on the first two maps the Axis flew many more fighter sorties than ground attack sorties, while VVS flew a roughly 1/1 basis.
