Hi all

Im relitively new to the game, ive read the manual, played scenarios against the ai and pbem , ive looked through the forums and downloaded the best of wite threads document i am still marginally confused about a fundemental part of the game, that being support units, where they come from and how to manage them properly

ive started a campaign game against the ai and follwing advice from certain threads locked all HQ's supply paths innorder to manually allocate SUs' and not have the ai shift them around all over the place .

So far as i understand it, you can only allocate SU's from a HQ to either another corp HQ or a HQ further up the chain of command , so if my corp HQ has a pioneer unit it cannot give that SU to a division under its command, instead the division has to request to assign SU's from a pool of units like this : This is where my confusion starts. These support units come from where ? from a national pool of units that appear over time that i can allocate to divisions or HQ's as i see fit or are they coming from my HQ's own assignments im trying to reorginise all my stugs artillery pioneers etc but i cant quite make the logical connection . i am sure this will be very obvious when its explained ( hence why i cant find anything about it on the net ) but can someone please just give me a simple idiots guide.
many thanks.

here is a screen shot of my corp hq, would the stug battalion and the pioneer and jagd panzer battalion be the same units as shown in my prievious post? if so does that mean i cannot allocate artillery battalions to divisions? or is it a cooincidence that this corp has some of the same units. im sure this is real simple and i am being an untemenschen about the whole thing

you start campaign/scenario with SUs already allocated – however unbalanced – to various HQs.

new SU will appear over time as reinforcements and will be assigned automatically to various HQ.

Exception: you have locked the HQ = no automatic assignement of new SUs, you have to do it manually, which may be time consuming, but at the same time it’s up to you who receives what.

you can assign e.g. pioneers, STUGs to a division.

you can not assign the various artillery Bns. Corps HQ will manage them in combat.

your first & second screen show the same SUs.

Excellent thanks for that, so to allocate a a SU to a division it must be available in its parent HQ ie corp HQ. i knew it was simple much appreciated.
