Can we get a 'recall damaged planes' option for CVs?

Would be nice if there were an option to recall damaged planes from a squad and have them return to your carrier rather than having to recall the entire squad.

Dump ordnance. Due to how damage is distributed, planes executing the attack run are the ones on the lowest health.

My experience with that is a crap shoot. Sometimes the damaged planes don't participate in the attack run and sometimes only one does.

I don't remember seeing the logic that dictates which planes take place in an attack run, but damage is usually so spread out across a squadron that I've not been in a situation where one or two elements are heavily damaged while the rest are in near-perfect condition.

It seems to me that your damaged planes move back to one of the later attack groups when starting an attack run. At least the planes do a lot of maneuvering when setting up an attack run when there are damaged planes in the squadron.

Agreed, seems pretty random.  I like the idea.

Yeah, did it once and the most damaged planes dropped and went home...

...the next try the most undamaged planes dropped and went home...

😑

The actual tell, AFAICT, is where the planes are in your formation. If the ones on fire are the ones that will be in the attack wing, then ocean dumping will send them home. If not... tough luck.
