 UPDATED

- notion of dimensions (limitatively : length, wingspan, empty weight)

- notion of peformances (limitatively : speed, range, ceiling)

- notion of operator : independantly from Camp

- notions of origin and operator : Camp better identified

- bomb load  &  payload : modified - Explanatory Notes of ditto updated

Notes  
- main keywords shown horizontally but could be in drop-down menus I guess
*

ASW and SAR are combined roles in AAC
- all ASW aircrafts have a secondary SAR role
- no purely SAR aircraft scheduled in Atlantic Air Combat™ at this moment

- splitting the two roles in this working table allows for would-be exceptions

¹º - purpose : compare max payload expressed in total weight and/or in number of paratroop - alternate1 : passengers - alternate 2 : casualties
¹¹

- purpose : to compare internal "bombers" capacities between them

- standard comparison item : 500 lb bomb

- bomb load is thus expressed in a default standard manner : number × standard = total  (eg: 12×500lb=6000lb)
- when main 500lb standard bomb not applicable, then value pertinent to bomber is shown - (eg: 12×100lb=1200lb)

- to avoid skipping a bomber in the resulting response.

- Note : this information is not part of the datasheet : will have to be stored appropriately

¹²

- purpose : to compare total bomb carrying capacities between them (all aircrafts, bomber inclusive)

- standard comparison item : 500 lb bomb

- bomb load is thus expressed in a default standard manner : number × standard = total  (eg: 12×500lb=6000lb)
- when main 500lb standard bomb not applicable, then value pertinent to bomber is shown - (eg: 12×100lb=1200lb)

- to avoid skipping a bomber in the resulting response.

- Note: this information is not part of the datasheet; will have to be stored appropriately

- Note: this total shown may be different from maximum payload

²º

- purpose : to identify which aircrafts are capable of carrying a given range of bombs

- non-standard values (eg: 132lb) will to be amalgamated with closest standard values (100 lb in this example)

- Note: the response should not go down to weapon ID, just the weight class

- Note: if identifying which aircraft may carry a given weapon (=ID) then another field must be prepared

³º

- extra power (after-burner for jet engines or "emergency power" for piston engines) is not always available

- answer shoud be : NO/YES=value
