As devices aren't normally defined by nationality, the code tries to detect which national units have the devices in them or in their TOE, ( or in the device's next upgrade path, I think).
It is not precise, but it does give you a feel for what national units are borrowing the pooled devices.
Since the M4 Zippo, device 1182, is not on any upgrade path, I think this means that the device should first show up as a US Army option in Aug-44, when the first Flame Tank Battalion arrives, with Zippos in the TO&E. The device should show up as a USMC option in Jan-45, but only once the USMC tank battalion TO&Es upgrade.
CR -- have you entered 1945 yet in your game? Can you confirm if the pools are WAD?
michaelm -- once again, you've added a nice feature. thanks
