SR-36/SRU - Allied Code Name aircraft issue

#1 Post by geminif4ucorsair » Jul 22 2017

Throughout SR-36/SRU, there are differing listings in Unit Names - for Axis aircraft, some have the Allied Code Name included, some do not.

It seems that some aircraft units were designs at one period, then augmented and in the process, some of the original entries included the Allied Code Names, such as the Mitsubishi A7M Reppu (Hurricane) as "Sam",

It would appear, that based on the way BG in SR-36 and other SR's, "local" names are preferred and used as often as possible (though this runs counter sometimes to Colonial-era names and spellings, especially in SR-36).
That would imply dropping the Allied Code unit name in description.


Either include them, or scrub them from upcoming update for SRU.

Uniformity would be nice......whichever way BG decides to go.
