B-26: The Marauder Strikes!Posted by Magnus Kimura 2018-09-26 09:53:47
Oh no... I have just found out that my zone width is off in the MTO... It is less than aprox 50 miles.. I have to check the ETO maps now.
I base the bombers range on
and fuel consumption on the map on the zone width.
I will not change it on the maps, only on the fuel consumption add-on chart.
The zone width is wrong on all maps. It is less than 50 miles... it is perhaps aprox 40 miles... but lets say it is 40-50 miles..

Tables & ChartsPosted by Magnus Kimura 2018-09-16 09:37:40I cannot believe I have been so wrong!
Hold all MTO missions from Maison Blanche until I have corrected the maps and gazetteers! The location of Maison Blanche is totally wrong.
I was beginning to wonder why I did not have enough fuel to return to base after a mission to Zone 13 when I used the B-26 fuel consumption chart. I had to double check 319th reports and their first mission was to Sfax which is 13 Zones on the Mission Map. They made two-three passes and even strafed... dropped 69 300lbs bombs. The main bomb bay can hold 8 300lbs bombs, and there were 9 bombers, so each must have had eight each, that is 2400lbs, so I was wondering how could they carry a full load of 300lbs and make several bomb runs and return to Maison Blanche when it seemed to be too far and there were no records of emergency landing or staging at Telergam, which I have had to to.
It is even stated in the 319th records that "Maison Blanche Airdrome abides by Algiers."
It is not the Maison Blanche I have on the map which is near Tafaraoui, by Oran.
