I understand Russians receive supply from Sevastopol, is there a way to interdict that source of Supply?

Interdicting supply to sevestopol is trivial...the luftwaffe automatically sinks supply points they can reach along the supply trail. All you have to do is wait for the effects of being out of supply to kick in.

Because it is so trivial, I turned on the hardcore supply rule, and wrote an event that automatically puts 300 supply in sevastopol. As a result, the city still fell to my rumanians, but it was a bloodier battle, and took until June 1, instead of May 20th. I may up it to 500 for the next game.

Sorry for the noob question, but what is the hardcore supply rule? Is it different than the limited/unlimited oil option?

Thanks in advance.

In the editor there is a slew of rules you can adjust for a game. One of them is a supply rule. The game default has all supply start at and flow from STAVKA/OKH to the unit directly. The 'hardcore' setting has supply flow from STAVKA->FRONT HQ->ARMY HQ->Unit. But the calculations for each HQ in game add a minute or two to the end of turn. Note this has nothing to do with the oil/limited oil rule on the settings page.

Great, thanks. Is it correct that if the air units use up their APs during their own turn they won't be able to interdict shipping or other air units during the opponent's turn?

It seems to me that they do way better if I do nothing with them....which implies that more AP's means more interdiction of sea supply. I havent noticed if that also affects my fighters on intercept or not, but then my opponent is fearful of flying any air attacks as he claims my air is brutal.

The way to prevent the Luftwaffe from sinking the supplies is to have soviet fighter units covering the naval supply line with intercept ON and enough readiness left at the start of your next turn to actually make the intercept setting readiness limit for their unit.

The way for the axis to disable this strategy is to do attack soviet airfields and units and causing these fighters to fight for air supremacy and making them lose enough readiness they can no longer have the readiness (at least 25% at lowest intercept setting) to protect the naval supply lanes.

Best,
Vic

Another example of the depth of this game and the great big brain of Vic! I am still impressed even after playing it for so many weeks.
