Everyone happy with the current airfields.Â I will be adding one on the Azores per Micoomâ€s suggestion.
How about Europe or Russia? There seems to be a shortage of airfields in the Atlantic theater.
Put an Airfield in Iceland so that planes flying from the US capital can get there in one turn. Western France could use an Airfield, too.
When it comes to adding airfields, you really need to ignore history. The most important thing is to look at the relationship in size between the territory with an airfield and the sea zone next to it. The purpose of airfields in the game are to get rid of the unrealistic situation of having a plane eat up one movement point crossing over a very large body of water, and then lose another movement point moving over a relatively tiny piece of land. (Or vice versa.) So, in other words, if a piece of land, such as an island is very tiny in relation to the sea zone around it, then you’re justified putting an airfield there. Or, is the sea zone next to a territory is rather small, and most likely only represents the coastal waters, than an airfield would be justified there, too. Now, by these criteria, you could end up putting airbases all over the place. You really only need airbases for high traffic areas, or in places where they’re needed for gameplay reasons. For example, Morocco doesn’t need an airfield since both the US and the UK can get planes there from their capitals in one turn. Iceland on the other hand needs an airbase so that it can be linked up with the US capital. Its possible one or two of the new islands in the Atlantic could justify an airfield, too, but I’m not certain. In my original version of the map, Washington, Iceland, Western France, and Malta were the only airfields in the atlantic theater.
