This was in the original readme:
1. Section 7.5.2 - Admin points are added when support unit is sent back to the higher HQ in case of unit break down (Soviet corps to divisions that can't have support units attached - 1 AP per unit sent back).
Now what's interesting is that the broken down Tank and Mech corps sub units are treated as if they are corps sized units (see the CR screen and filter for size of unit). This is no doubt why they cost 4 CP, and why they are allowed to have attached support units, even though they are listed as a brigade. I will have to ask Pavel if he intended for them to be able to have a support unit attached. If so, then there is no reason for the support unit's to be sent back to the HQ when the Corps is broken down (but when they are sent back as they are now, you should get 1 AP back). This may be a case where in order to get the CP to be less than 4, they need to be treated as either a brigade or division, in which case they would not be able to have a support unit attached. Lee, this item should go on the bug list to sort out exactly how the broken down Soviet Tank/Mech corps units should be treated.
As I recall, German regimental breakdowns can also have 1 support unit attached. However, I don't recall off-hand if you as a player can actually attach a support unit to a regimental break-down; or if the SU attachments are are restricted to the AI automatically distributing support units within the division at the moment of break-down to it's various organic regiments.
I'm also curious now if a SU can be attached to the various independent German regiments and brigades. For example can a Pioneer battalion be attached to the Gross Deutchland Regiment, or to the like?
