This mod introduces some time-saving shortcuts for those tired of microing 50+ aircraft/missiles in later eras
Download Here

The mod implements the following 3 commands:

Forward Rebase (Shift + Right Click on airbase):
* Will move all aircraft on the selected hex to target airbase until no more slots are available or all aircraft have rebased
* On each iteration, will move higher current hp aircraft first, with ties broken by unit level

Spoiler Sample Gifs :

Only moves aircraft of the same type:

Works for missiles:

When space is insufficient, moves high hp aircraft first


Fallback Rebase (Alt + Right Click on airbase):
* Will move all damaged aircraft on the selected hex to target airbase until no more slots are available or all aircraft have rebased
* On each iteration, will move lower current hp aircraft first

Spoiler Sample Gifs :

Only moves damaged aircraft:
When space is insufficient, moves low hp aircraft first
Even with sufficient destination room, ignores aircraft of different types


Massed Strike Mode (Shift + Right Click on enemy):
* Will air strike the unit on the target hex using until all aircraft have attacked or the target is dead
* On each iteration, will attack with higher current hp aircraft first, with ties broken by unit level
* Aircraft that can attack more than once will do so before the next aircraft begins attacking

Spoiler Sample Gifs :

Attack until dead
Works for missiles
Logistics bombers will attack twice:


Compatibility
* save-game compatible
* Vox Populi 2.6+ (might work with earlier versions but haven't tested)
* Not compatible with other mods that modify Core Files/CoreLua/WorldView.lua - if using "Linked & Group Unit Movement for VP (EUI) v 3" use the following compatibility patch: [Link]
* should work with any mods that introduce new aircraft - tested with EAW and works fine

Thanks to @balparmak for helping me get started
