This is the 27beta.

I cannot figure out why these units cannot fly an air resupply mission. A bomb unit mission to an adjacent hex shows lots of bombers available for the mission. None of the involved air units have expended air movement points. Supply is over 90% for all units. I set required to fly to 40%. Units are in command range and less than 10 MP from the rail. Range to the airdrop hex is short.

27 Beta

This one cannot fly air transport either. Within 5 MP. Air Transport Units have flown 0%.
The only thing odd is they are both over 100%. I do not see a way to manually place the excess aircraft into reserve status.

Just noticed this rule change did not make it into section 16 of the 27 beta manual.

I have tried just clicking on various units in range with air drop icon selected.

I have tried shift clicking.

I have tried to select the base and then the unit to resupply. Click and shift click.

1) F9
2) Shift-Right-Click on unit(s) in a highlighted hex (those hexes are in range of eligible air groups)

You should get a list of air groups

No, there is something wrong somewhere. Is there a complete list in one place as to why an air drop mission for supplies will not go? The transports that would not fly last turn flew this turn in AGS. This transport refuses to to fly in AGC. I did the right click on a stack and deselected the transport and just used the bombers. I shift right click on the adjacent stack and nothing. I have made lots of attempts to use this transport. I'll finish my turn and see if it is willing to fly at the end of the turn.

There are 'issues' with air supply. For example if you have 2 AB in the hex and one of the AB is eligable to fly a supply mission and the other not eligable then 'sometimes' the eligable AB will refuse to fly until you move the not eligable AB out of the hex. Its not a consistent problem but I am yet to work out the trigger. Maybe this is your problem.

An observation that could aid the trigger search:

There is a night unit (Go 145C) on the AB with the transports - it could be that the 'Y' setting of night mission for this specific air group makes all groups on the AB ineligible.

I guess the fighter escort/staging base also has to be withing 5 MP of the railhead in order to escort the air transport mission. True? In other words, air transport missions will not stage through a fighter base that is further forward and pick up the fighter escort.

It looks pretty repeatable to me. I verified that some transports would fly air drop missions. I moved a bomber airbase which had already flown air drop missions onto the transport airbase. The transports would not fly. Move the bomber base off, and they did fly.

Please attach a save file with steps on how to repeat the problem. Thanks.

Road to Leningrad scenario opening position. (6.027)
Crank required to fly down to 10%.
Use all the bombers on an airfield mission.
Select F9, then 1 LW base. Confirm that the mission is available by right clicking on a unit.
Move 4 LW base on top of 1 LW base.
Select F9, then 1 LW Base. Confirm that the mission is not available.
Move 4 LW base off of 1 LW base.
Select F9, then 1 LW Base. Confirm that the mission is available.

Note that not selecting the source base also makes the mission available. A viable workaround here when there is only the one base of interest.
