The DAK have appeared near Tripoli.
Its now 4 hexes from Tripoli with a strenght of only 9 and 2 action points.
It has only supply 7 from Tripoli.
There is a large Italian fleet outside Tripoli that should deliver supply 20.
I then try to launch a German convoy from Naples to Tripoli.
It will not be executed and there is message that says there is no friendly units to supply!

This is the case all the time when I try to supply German units in Africa:
1. Its not possible to supply them with German convoys.
2. They will not be supplided from Italian convoys.
3. They will not benefit from the special Sea supply.
4. They will only have minimal supply from Tobruk or Tripoli.

Thus its pointless to send German troops to Africa!

A bug?

When they changed the supply allot of rules changed.

For example: Planes can no longer move in Africa, they half to be re-base.
In fact in allot of areas planes can no longer move, they need to re-base. Why?

Because supply is not high enough. It needs to be 10 or 12, forgot which.

Tripoli is zero supply. 11 if you are not the original owner.

Since Tripoli is Italy, yet an Axis partner, you get 11 supply. Hence when you are 4 hexes away, you get less supply. 11-4 = 5 supply. 5 supply = 9 strength and 2 AP

In SOP this was changed. Allies no longer receive the secondary supply source. In this case 11 from Tripoli. Instead, they receive the supply source from the owner when the owner is Allied.

This has not been changed in TOF or is not working correctly.

How to fix:

Use German ships for alternative supply.

Unfortunately you can not get ships into the Med.

Use a convoy from Naples.

Unfortunately this feature is broken. It only works for the city. The supply rules does not calculate if it an ally city. When you move away it uses the secondary supply source (11)

3) Good thing for us I found another bug.

Keep another German unit in the city. Then the convoy works.

Now you can move forward!

The Third Reich scenario will mitagate some of these issues.
