Anybody remember when the Marine air units began swapping in their hodgepodge of aircraft for the early Corsairs?

Also, since that event seems to not be set up to happen in the Marine dynamic campaign, does anybody know where I insert it into the Dgen config files?

I seem to remember they got the Corsiar around Oct. 1942.

Marine unit VMF-124 was commissioned in California on September 7, 1942. It received its Corsairs later in that month. It arrived on Gaudalcanal with its F4U-1 Corsairs on February 12, 1943.

Don't you mean "pwnage"? Sorry, I expect many here are disdainful of 1337-5P33K...

Ok, back to my original question... does anybody know what I change in the Dgen files so that the Marine squadrons transfer to Corsairs Mk Is, then F4U-1As, then F4U-1Ds, at (roughly) the appropriate dates?
