Another NOOB question (sigh).
Just starting out...Particularly in Russia, there are a LOT of air units in remote areas. For example. 9th PV08 fighter unit, adjacent to Astrakahn. This unit belongs to a formation with internal support. I would like to beef up fighter coverage between Moscow and Rostov. Moving this unit will put it out of C&C, although it can provided limited support for Fighters with the same color scheme. Will transfering the entire formation to, (for example) the SW/South Front allow all units in the formation to cooperate, or do they have to stay in the Caucasus Mountain area? There is not a lot of enemy air activity around Astrakahn, Baku, and such, and I could use these fighters to support an attempt to beef up defenses in the Diepner Area. (Just an example)...Russia has more fighters coming on line, but what is the prognosis on moving the entire formation (on internal support) to an entirely different region?
This is a test case, looking at the possibility of redeploying entire formations so that they don't lose the benefit of limited internal support.
Also: Looking through the OOB, and rummaging thru stacks, I can find no Russian Airborne Units. Russia had a very limited Airborne capability, largely ineffective. Are there any Russian airborne units, either at the start, or arriving later?
Please understand that I am NOT critizing the OOB I just want to make sure I don't leave any paratroopers high & dry. (I would leave the Russian Para's out of a game with this scale, given thier historical performance),
