Cheers Olivier, I'll ask away.
Right then, air supply, what I've learnt so far and what I dont quite get so far (axis side only):
Make sure that your JU52 units only have 100 planes in them, otherwise they will suffer from penalties of being too big for the airfield.
Set your existing units to DISBAND until they get below a hundred.
In my current game on my first turn I've created all my new JU52 units on turn one (four of them) and set them all onto PRIORITY. Once they get up to a 100 planes I'll set them onto 50% which should hopefully keep them under a 100.
Always keep JU52 units attached to OKH as this is where they will deliver meaningful supply from (I'd like confirmation of this as still not 100% sure)
Unfortunately they will probably have to be out of HQ range as they'll need to be based further forward when you use them (probably in the Caucasus). Again, not sure on this one, need to properly test it.
How much supply do they deliver? Not sure and also not too sure how to tell (check each individual unit?).
Can they deliver supplies to units with yellow or blue status (or green status come to that). In my experience they can as I've seen the symbol on the unit change from yellow to green. Others reckon differently, it would be nice to have confirmation either way.
What I'm thinking of doing is going back to one of my old save games and running a test on all these questions and seeing if I can come up with some answers. Hopefully have chance over the weekend.
EDIT: Obiously the big question is HQ power and how that affects them, i.e. as Olivier asked up there, does it have any affect on aircraft.
