Playing both and they are allied. Truth is there are no BC troops in suez and I guess BC cant supply UK troops.
But if that is true how will DAK be supplied when the event give it to the germans. Question will arice soon in my German campaign.

Nope. I learn more every day about the game. So playing different nations is good experience. Keep up the good work.

You must set up a German convoy from the mainland to a port in Africa, probably Tripoli. Can be from any German or Axis port on the mainland, that has a rail link to Berlin. Cannot go past Gibraltar unless the Germans own it.

I believe sending supplies from the colonies to Cairo was considered an exploit.

Why don't you put up a poll to see if players would like to change it?

So if I understood it right DAK will be limited to any city supply is awailable. They gonna be very ineffective then. Anyone played so far and used them in the desert yet. Any experience you can share?

Supply WAS sent from the Commonwealth to Suez so its hardly an exploit. By coincidence I was just writing about this on the 'Great Wishlist Thread'. The UK should have MSS sources in India and South Africa which could reach Suez with very little (read effectively zero) possibility of interdiction from the Axis. ToF forces convoys through the 'Suicide Med route... UK had supply sources and bases all over the world the Axis had effectively none outside the ETO except for the isolated Ethiopia which was indefensible geographically, and irrelevant from a resource production standpoint. In ToF the Axis operates 10000 15000 km from bases like its nothing and the UK units in those areas are on somewhat equal footing (also far from base) as the UK logistical infrastructure and bases are not factored in. An egregious example is the the Sea Zones adjacent to South Africa which would benefit from bases supply and air cover but in ToF are 'remote' from base for the UK.

If anything is more seriously broken in ToF than the events system its naval combat and convoys.

If you get a convoy through from Europe to a port in North Africa for the Germans, then the DAK will be able to draw 30 supply from that port, and 20 from any other city (because there are no RRs). You can do quite well with the DAK IF you keep that convoy going. The trouble is Malta. It will often interdict your convoy.
