How works the supply flow coming from air ? The rule says "select a target hex for the supply" but what is he best ?
A hex with a HQ or a empty hex or a hex with a normal unit ? How this supply is dispatched between units ?

you dont have to select a unit, but it is important to select an airfield (a town) if possible.

best,
Vic

I performed a drop of supply per air on a completely isolated german division in campaign (so without any airfield). It was working in the same manner as for Stalingrad. I didn't see any difference.

Yes but with less supply received I guess.

With 4 turns into the Uranus Scenario as Axis I decided to give Air Supply a try. When I select the Air Transport unit a message displays saying "Select target unit for air supply.Max 600: Target area needs 37" Whatever unit I choose this message stays the same. What exactly does "target area needs xxx" mean?

Edit: Is it possible to attach fighter escort to transport missions?

^ Air suppy goes in alone so make sure you run some fighter sweeps near your target to try and get the Russian fighters to comitt before you send in the transports.
