Yes, but you should assign the air supply mission according to a region. Air supply doesn't seem to work on a single province target. All supply will then migrate back to the depot.
Assign by region? Didn't know that could be done. Is that just a matter of selecting regional map mode and select all provs in the region? Is there a hot key idk about for regional assignments?
How is Hungary landlocked? It has a common border with Romania, and via that border it will receive supply. It's very possible Budapest could be the depot. No matter, a supply draw will be established for those units in Hungary, and these supplies will migrate one province/day to feed your units. Air supply is just extra - and probably not a bad idea.
Ok.. I phrased that poorly. Hungary was landlocked until I conquered Romania. that was the point I was getting to... will supplies make it up from Romania to Hungary. That's why I wanted to use Split so it would be a shorter route. Less prov costs.
cool...Wings do not fly empty, so if you see them flying they are providing supply.
As long as they have a draw, sure. The supply system doesn't know you stole those provinces.
ok... "stole" is kind of a harsh term. Winston and I sat down and made an agreement like gentlemen. That's what Allies do. We cooperate . The console is a nice tool to make up for the lack of some features. Not like there's a Malta or Potsdam to work things out at ;-p
Yes, especially if they are five-brigade divisions. Logistics wizards are mandatory in those divisions. A skill-level six or seven leader at Army Group is a must. One good thing: provinces can move equal amounts of supply and fuel simultaneously.
My Mec Divs are typically 5 brigades with Mec, Mot, SPART, TD, MOTAA with some variations of AC or ENG. I let the AI run production early on. They will chug down fuel. I've got supply wizards leading just about all my mobile divs. AGs all are at least a six.
BTW: Patton would frown on your intended attack plans. To paraphrase, he would advise you "...hold him by the teeth and kick him in the ass." You're trying to shove a fist down your enemy's throat while giving him the chance to dodge. I doubt you have the manpower to pull this off, but good luck. It will be interesting to see what happens.
I would like to have Patton around to get advice from but... since he isn't... I'm relying on the forum for a lot. Thank God there isn't real lives involved ;-p. Yea... Manpower is getting low but... The Soviets are going to have their own challenges too and.. I'm counting on my Airforce advantage make things a lot more easy for ground troops. They should be dealing with lots of low org PTSD'ed Ruskies. This is what Russia gets for taking out Germany too soon. I didn't get enough experience since they were all but beaten by the time I finished off Italy.
Thanks man. Much better understanding on supplies from this thread.
