During Coral Sea I docked the HMAS Australia in Townsville after it had run out of 8" gun ammo. Seems the port isn't big enough to stock that size ammo. How do I find out what size port will re-arm what sort of weapons? The manual gives the limits by port size but only talks about weapon rearm costs in a generic sense. Any suggestions on where you can find specifics?
Regards
Andrew

Not sure off hand what size the port is, but you can help the situation by adding Naval Support units to the port. Remember each naval support unit is roughly equal to an increase in port size of 1.

Manual Section 20.1.2.2 Ship Rearmament at Ports Table

An 8" gun takes between 510 and 540 points. Townsville is a port-3, which is rated 40. Table says you will need between 95 and 100 Naval Suport squads. Or find an AKE somewhere (hard early war). Or build it up to a 5. In which case you only need 40 to 50 Naval Support.

Thanks. I missed that table and probably couldn't have understood it without your example. Much appreciated.
