Try to keep LCU out of bases. That way they suck supply from every available source in range (and you leave less in bases to be destroyed during bombardments).
that's a good point, inqistor.
i'm moving a lot of LCUs in China (those that are 100% prepped for future ops) out of base hexes, in the field they'll keep 10 pts above their need, but a base will try to draw 3 times their need!
i've shut down a lot of air-ops in China, including training, for the last 6 days, & have been rewarded by an increase in supply at Lanchow - 15k now, hopefully that will continue to rise.
adding planes from the pools to sqns in China, or upgrading sqns there, will also be verboten as i try to weather this supply-crisis.
i used the air-bridge hiatus to click-fest all the transport pilots, only the best are flying supply missions now. satellite air-bases are under construction near Ledo, w/ many transport sqns under training in India and the EC. exp gain on transport pilots is just achingly slow, even for groups on active ops.
Ledo has been operating again for 18 days now, w/ the active transport groups set to 60% rest. so far, the daily ops-loss rate has been less than the build rate, & the replacement-plane pools have been gradually increasing.
