I can build pretty much anything, but if I lose an airborne brigade I can't rebuild it, so my airborne corps end up looking like an ugly guy that's missing one front tooth.

Is there any reason why airborne brigades are unbuildable?

That kind of stuff is specialized training; the non option to build them probably represents a lack of training resources ( planes, training officers, etc. ). Same bottleneck applies for mountain units.

But I get a bunch of them as scheduled replacements, so there must be some way to train them; It's odd that I can't get one more of them.

The game can create production bottlenecks in other ways. Looks to me like the latest major patch added them for sappers, cavalry, and arty in 1941-2 at least. You can build as many such units as you like but with all the arms centres and manpower in the world, your production won't flesh out the shells.

Those airborne units arriving in Dec 1941 were created because so many had died, in the actual war, up to then.

It was a design decision to restrict airborne brigades to historical starting units and reinforcements to avoid having to create a special training procedure for just one type of unit. Eventually the game system will have to deal with issues like specialized training but for WitE the easiest solution was to prohibit the Soviet player from building them.
