I dug around but couldn't locate information on how selecting a paint scheme that offers +20% crew experience when a "map has bonus characteristics active?"  I get it that a mine generates bonus points the longer its held.  What am I missing?  Thanks in advance.
Then again... can't we just be friends?

From what I can see it's any Conquest Mode map.  I suppose the wriggly room words are a CYA for when some other mode is going.

I'm not exactly sure where you are reading that but here are two options.

 

1- it is a carry over from concealing paint schemes. summer camo will give no bonus characteristics on a winter map, dessert map, or marine map and vice versa.  universal camo, special paint schemes and awarded paint schemes work on all maps.

 

2- paint still works in special game modes like bomber escort so it might be to differentiate between a combat flight and training room.

Thanks guys!  I'll do a screen copy the next time I can get into the game.  This morning (08:45) and yesterday morning about the same time the launcher wouldn't run (retry later).

 

There's a bomber escort game mode?

Hi Doojigger, 

 

Paint schemes bonuses that give extra XP or speed work on maps of any type. The line you are referring to is a standard notification and is actually true for paint schemes with a concealing bonus. Paint schemes that do not give any bonuses on a particular map type (Desert, Marine, Summer or Winter) are listed separately under the line "No bonuses for this map type".
