I'm trying to para-drop the 1st and 2nd Raiding Rgts and none of the IJA Engineer squads drop with the units. I have had the 1st & 2nd Raiding Sentais (Ki-57-I) transporting for the past several turns and the engineers refuse to transport. What am I missing?

IJ engr sqs have a load cost of 16, is that too large for your transports?

Where would you find that? I had thought that in a para unit all the unit could transport

hotkey D for the Aircraft/Weapons/Infantry database, hit the Infantry button & then sort by name.

i had a similar prob trying to air-transport some Yank units - even using my largest planes, some devices wouldn't be lifted. i think there's a hard-coded limit.

Not engineer. It is not a Squad (as defined by editor) from the perspective of being dropped.

Ahh, so engineer units fall into 'other devices'?

So then only if I capture the base and it is within half the max range of my transports will my IJA engineer squads follow the rest of the unit.
