In a custom scenario, I have three SEP, providing alternative supply to two Bases:
SEP1 @ Clervaux
SEP2 @ Wiltz
SEP3 @ Bastogne
I had 110 Rgt located at and presumably taking supply from Clervaux, 28th Division located at and taking supply from Wiltz.
Supply take-up is all airlanded/static depot, with the proportions:
SEP1: 50, 40, 0, 0, 0
SEP2: 50, 80, 50, 0, 0
SEP3: 0, 80, 100, 110, 110
I ran into 110 Rgt still in place in Clervaux where it was destroyed (which seems ok to me, if sub-optimal).
On the morning of D2 though, the 28th Div HQ and Base arrive in the open ground just to the north of Clervaux into the teeth of an overwhelming German attack (despite Wiltz being far more 'important' than most AI objectives and 'safe' in the rear), and Bastogne being a better long term 'bet'.
I suspect it has something to do with the Armour attached to both, and their preponderance of HMG, but they would be far better employed dug in on their SEP than hare-ing around the countryside in sight of massed artillery and two infantry Rgts, plus PzJg elements...
I'll try re-arranging the SEP locations to see if there is a favouring of SEP1 over the other ones...
