Strategic movement for ground units - 7/22/2012 8:43:21 AM

Hello,


in section 8.2.1 the manual states: "The Allies can utilize Strategic OpMode on rail lines and Main Roads.". However, I have not yet been able to move a ground unit via major (grey) roads when in strategic mode. I know that the destination must be a friendly base. Is this a known bug, or is the manual incorrect here?

Show us a picture - it's the only way to be sure with the "road overlay enabled."

Not all allied units can strat move on major roads. From memory some seabee/naval construction units, chinese units etc can't. Most of the US units can though.

I think if the unit has motorized support in it's TO&E then it can utilize Strat Movement.

Lifer, I can't find that in the manual. Where did you read that? Hal

The presence or absence of motorised support in a LCU has absolutely nothing to do with whether strategic road movement is possible. Its availability is solely dependent on:

(a) the nationality of the LCU (American and British Empire), and
(b) the presence of grey roads

Yes you have to learn to live with the chinese who move slower than anyone else and therefore get 'bounced' by the Japanese all the time....

No relation to the terrain, its just the 'way it is'.......

Alfred I still can't strat move USN construction battalions along grey roads- only railway. I've confirmed this on separate units ccurrent's based in India (Kohima to Dimapur) and Australia (Normanton to Charters Towers).

So it's not strictly nationality based either

It has been a long time since I've had to send any construction engineers along a grey road on strategic mode. I don't recall having your problem. Just went into my game and picked non combat units which were already in strategic mode at Sydney, Townsville and Calcutta (waiting to be loaded on to ships) and the game allowed me to set a road destination (Canberra, Normanton and Kohima respectively).

My long ago recollection is that units on strategic road movement travel at a slower rate than if on railway strategic movement but quicker than if in "move" mode.

Also for game purposes the USN is a different nationality to USA.
