Garrisons. Not them as such but the inability to breakdown units small enough to man them. There are many 10-20 garrisons scattered aroumd but you're stuck for the most part by having to put 50-60 AV sized units at each.

The Philippine Archepelogo has a lot of them. What I do is land an SNLF with an AV around 60 or so. I then use a medium BF (Aviation Support 24) at that base (Cebu is a good choice). Use a 9 plane Chutai of transport planes to fly in 1/2 the LCU. The other 1/2 either stays at this base or is shipped to another.
Rinse and repeat as needed.

Good idea, I'll try it.

Good idea, indeed. Alternatively use ships with (too) small load spaces, carrying only a fraction of the LCUs. APD are good, for example. They can get the job done fairly fast too.

Good points all... from an Allied perspective things are a lot more flexible for the most part. For example in India within the first two months the Allied player gets a LOT of small units that will fit the bill. In China however things are vastly more "difficult" as few units are under 40AV and there is no real way of transporting via sea. However the answer might rest with the air transport, something I never thought about... so thanks guys... good input.

I'm not sure about the ship version, it seems like if you try that you end up getting the combat portion loaded, leaving the support troops behind. I only think that because of the way amphibious transports unload (not load). Never paid attention to the loading process before.

I don't think ship transport will work for this reason. Air transport does, been transporting a NG unit using a 9 a/c for the past two turns, so far I've got 4AV at the destination but just as important all transportable elements seem to have been transported in the same preportions.
