OK, thanks.. that's pretty much what I thought. Having gone from the defensive to the offensive I have come to the personal conclusion that, for the most part, it is not worth spending PPs to move LCUs to different HQs, with the following exceptions (Air units not discussed):
1) To activate a unit that is currently assigned to a [R] or [S] HQ, and that unit must board a transport to make it to combat. For example, an Indian unit [R] in Madras can still march to combat in Burma, so there may be no need to spend the PPs to get it into combat, whereas a [R] unit attached to West Coast will need to board a transport to go to combat, so spending the PPs is mandatory (hrm, I wonder if it can board a transport that is assigned to West Coast? Must try that this evening).
2) The parent HQ has been destroyed (ADBA) and the unit is in combat. For instance, a unit of Australian I Corps retakes Mandalay. That brings Mandalay under the control of AUS I Corps. I am not sure if this causes supply issues.. anyone know? I don't *think* it does, but it offends my sense of order :)
3) 2 Sub-units are attached to different HQs and you want to rejoin the larger unit. Aus. divisions attached to ADBA are a good example. Many sub-units will be destroyed in the initial fall of SE Asia, if you bring the destroyed sub-units back, most likely they will come back attached to whatever HQ Aden is under, while the old units will still be attached to ADBA. If you plan to keep the units at the BDE and BN level this is not an issue. I personally prefer the "oomph" of a combined arms division.
4) Your style of play mandates that you attach ground units to a Corps HQ. I started out here but am quickly finding I'd rather spend the PPs on activating [R] and [S] LCUs and Air units, and combining existing divisions from their components.
