I have had the same question about supply cost for a while. You say that supply spent to receive a replacement device=load cost; that value displays in the device page of the editor. Is there some "in game" screen where that info is also shown? Also, I assume the requisite supply must be in the same hex as the unit receiving the device?
No in game screen that I know of gives you load cost .... I use 15 supply for squads and AFV's, 10 for most other devices. Just as an estimate. So rebuilding a trashed IJ division can cost well in excess of 10,000 supply. This is on top off all the HI spent to build the replacement devices. Something to consider. This expense is also borne when you do upgrade devices ...
Wow Pax that is rather expensive, even for the well supplied allies!
Well, the device costs are more. You expend LC * ARM pts and LC * Manpower. and 6 * HI = 1 ARM pt. So were talking ~60,000 HI and ~10,000 Manpower in addition to the ~10,000 supply to rebuild that trashed div.... Very expensive.
