Everyone has sometimes bad luck, but this is getting ridiculous! I am playing as China and my airforce in this game acts so far poorly... very poorly. But in the current war against Byzanz it is taken up to eleven. Making a fighter sweep with Ki-84 Hayate (A10/D7) and MiG-19 (A17/D12) against the defending Fulmars (A6/D6) and losing three MiGs and two Hayates with no losses to the Fulmars? Followed by an additional MiG-19 shoot down by a Albatros of WWI vintage (A2/D1). The very next interturn three Albacore Torpedobombers (A0/D2) make an air raid and promptly shoot down two intercepting MiG-15 (A12/D9) and an older Hawk75 (A7/D6) again without losses to their own. By now I have stopped sending out my fighters and bombers and use land and naval bombardement only. Could it be, that Civ3 assigned a fixed modifier to combat results for the course of the complette game?
