Hi,

just started a game this WE as Germany and after the 2nd turn I've run already into supply problems.

I've taken Riga in turn 1 and Minsk in turn 2 and after that my Panzergroups have about 18 MP when turn 3 starts.

I've moved the Corps HQs so all their units are within ranges. I've converted as much rail as I could and the flew mostly supply missions (I think even those divisions with about 75% fuel are low on MP).

Is there anything I'm missing?

Not really - turn 3 is a supply stretch for the Germans, particularly for the panzers.

I assume you meant you flew lots of air transport missions delivering Fuel. Unless I"m forgetting something, for a unit with 75% fuel, I'd expect that you'd have a lot more than 18 MPs. The divisions have a lot of excess fuel on turn 1, so they generally can roll for 2 turns and then assuming they are far into the Soviet Union, fuel will become a problem.

Well, as it turned out, I was just very stupid. The HQ of those units was out of command range, so they had only ~18MP left.

Seems like I had it to learn the hard way.

Thanks for the answers :)

Hey guys,

may i jump with another question regarding supply/fuel?

What happens with supply/fuel captured from the enemy. When i move my units next to soviet non-combat units such as HQ's and air bases, my units capture xy tones of supply or fuel. Everything is clear until now.

Where this supply gone? I check at the units, but those captured supply/fuel arent added to unit supply/fuel. Same goes for units HQ. No change of supply/fuel level :(

Your answer is in section 15.14 of the manual:

quote:

15.14. Captured Supplies and Fuel

The retreat or displacement move of any unit may result in the capture of supplies and/or fuel. The captured material will be added as damaged supply or fuel depots to the HQ unit to which the combat unit that caused the retreat or displacement move is attached. A text message will display in the map area whenever enemy material is captured.
