Seriously though, I'll give you a "simple" method for doing this... if you have 2 squadons of the same type (Ftr vs GB) and of the same generation that have lost DP's... just shift undamaged DP's from one squadron to the other. If this leaves the second squadron without any DP's, it's gone. There are basically 3 possible combinations for merging 2 damaged SQ's.

A. The total DP of the 2 SQ's is less than a single full SQ, in which case combining them creates one less damaged SQ, and wipes out the other SQ.

B. The total DP of the 2 SQ's is exactly equal to a single full SQ, in which case, combining them creates one undamaged SQ, and wipes out the other SQ.

C. The total DP of the 2 SQ's is greater than a single full SQ, in which case, combining them creates one undamaged SQ, and one SQ that is even more damaged than it was originally.

Having said all this, I have no clue how this would actually affect fighter and GB SQ's in Ultra, as I haven't invested the time required to try to figure out this "simple"

squadron system.
