This question is probably aimed on allied players.

Is considered 100K supplies a lot in the first three months of the war? If allied player would need to replenish those lost supplies what operations would be probably in danger in terms of priority? Building airfields, ressuplying frontline units or somethink else?

This question can't really be answered. It all depends on what where and why...

In game terms 100k from the general supply pool is not much and easily replaced. If it is sitting in Darwin and for some reason magically lost while you have 800 AV defending it I would say it is pretty annoying...

The problem is the 25,000 threshold .. maybe for replacements .. otherwise double supply to get aviation to do its thing ... I am not sure where you are goign with this?

I would look at the problem of what theater are these supplies needed? Simply, it is not a question of the number of supplies, There are infinite supplies for example on the west coast, east coast, england the problem is getting where they need to go. 100,000 supplies takes 16 - 21 Cargo ships [between 6400 - 4800] to move someting somewhere. In the first 3 months of the war the IJ can interdict this at will.

I do not beleive it is possible for the IJ to sink all the merchant fleet, but it is possible to interdict operational areas from getting supply.

Welll i asked in general becouse obviously i cant know where some convoy is heading. what i was thinking was supply convoy and what might be 100K used for. But cracfaces response with unlimited supplies just probably means the convoy just was regular convoy.
