For some reason the air transport supplies mission wants to use level bombers that are 400 miles away when Ju52s and other air assets capable of dropping are within 50 miles.

Furthermore, no fighters are available for escort even though several hundred are within short range.

Why is the mission selection not allowing any choice of air units closer than all the way down at Army Group South by Kharkov?

This is a server game so I have no idea how to post a save.

Here is a screenshot with several areas 'redacted' for security purposes. This is the second turn I have been unable to fly anything but unescorted bombers from the Kharkov area to Velikie Luki area - this is the start of the turn and no other air missions have been flown; I did transfer the two Ju52 groups in to the closest airbase to see if that made them available.

Note ~150 Ju52s are sitting just a little south by Mogilev.

Ok - I finally got a better selection by using the procedure:

1) click into move mode (F1)
2) click on airbase
3) click air drop button
4) click shift button
5) right click on target hex

Air transport can only be flown from airbases within 5 MP's of a supply source, so maybe some of your airbases are ineligible. See section 5.3.9 for details.

Can you post the Slitherine forum names of the players and what scenario you are playing please? I will try to pull the server file and look at it. Also note that the 5 MP limit posted above is not in the public version of the game yet. My bad.
