Soviet [USSR] TU-95 bomber [52 era/year tech] is available too early to USSR. AI USSR could trade the design in 1942, but all other aircraft were time/tech appropriate (e.g., MiG-1, LAGG, etc.)

US M4 Mortar Carrier. It has a Low reaction speed. Shouldn't it be High, given that other mortar carriers (in 2020 and CW) normally given a High reaction speed (but short ranges)?

US M22 Locust light tank should be air-droppable:

However, only the largest cargo planes of the time (C-54) could actually drop one, so I'd give it a heavy unit weight.

We give unit the weight that they weigh. If we increase it, they will cost a disproportionate number of military goods to produce.

Got it. Currently, the M22 isn't air droppable.

Different topic: The US does not have the Montana Class BB's on the build list. Keels were not laid and the ships were never completed, but had been funded and planned.
Suggestion: Include the Montana Class with the Iowa Class (they were of the same tech level, design, etc.) but give the Montanas a lower speed but higher protection and gun value than the Iowas. They were 1/3 larger than the Iowas, had three more 16/50 cal guns, substantially more armor, but were slower (28 knots vs. 31 for the Iowas).

Newest update.

P2Y-3A Ranger recon (USA) aircraft is still invisible on screen. No unit icon. Performs as normal, just nothing there.

oh, right. I know what happened. An updated file didn't get output. Notice the output script is missing that file the day after we posted the latest update.

So, fixed for the next update.

land units like tanks can contain up to 50 tanks. We need 50 cargo units to transport them. Perhaps there is a need of an air unit to represent a group of 50 cargo planes capable to transport a whole battalion.

It is also good to have land transport trucks capable to serve the transport of slow moving land units. Fast moving trucks for rapid transport of tanks to the battlefield.

To my knowledge, few tanks could be air transported in 1936. You're describing things that I don't think existed.

Yep, the only things air dropped in World War 2 were Airborne units and supplies.

Wrong! Some Soviet light tanks were designed to be transported by air. Not droppable, but they could be transported.

And if I remember correctly, they even experimented with air dropping light tanks (parachuting them) by TB-3 heavy bombers....
