I would agree, just I am not sure if in this case you'd have to count from the unit to the HQ the same that the HQ has to count from itself to the railroad to count the 4 motorized movement points.
The unit would be correctly OOS but the sum of the hexes' value would be 3 mountain + 3 mountain = 6 > 4
A face-up HQ can reorganise units within range of the HQ. The HQ's
reorganisation range is equal to its reorganisation value in motorized
movement points. The path from the HQ to the unit to be reorganised
is traced exactly like a basic supply path, except its maximum length
is determined by the HQ's reorganisation range, and it may not be
traced overseas. You may always trace 1 hex if the unit tracing supply
is not prohibited from entering that hex.
So you have to count from the HQ to the unit and that makes it a 5. Interesting is the fact that a MTN unit can be reorganised across a Alpine hexside or a MAR across a sea or lake hexside according to this rule if the HQ is adjacent to the hex the MTN or MAR is in...
Curious, we always interpreted this rule as "since you need to count from Secondary (HQ) to Primary", in the case of the unit you need to do "the same (system)", for us this meant count from the Unit to the Secondary following the same "logic". We always did it as I said. Here, it would seem that tracing the supply would be from the unit to primary or from the unit to secondary and from secondary to primary...
2.4.2 Tracing supply
To be in supply, a unit must be able to trace a supply path back to a primary supply source.
A primary supply source for a unit is:
ï any friendly city in the unit’s unconquered home country; or
ï for a Commonwealth unit, any friendly city in another unconquered Commonwealth home country; or
ï any friendly city in an unconquered home country of a major power the unit co-operates with (see 18.1).
Example: Germany has just declared war on Poland. Polish units that can trace a supply path to a friendly controlled city in Poland are in supply (because it is a friendly city in their home country). They are also in supply if they can trace to their controlling major power’s cities (because Poland co-operates with its controlling major power).
MiF option 6: An HQ is a primary supply source for the rest of the turn if you expend a face-up supply unit it is stacked with (see 22.4.10).
A city controlled by the communist Chinese is not friendly to the nationalist Chinese (and vice versa), even though both are (nominally) on the same side.
If the unit can’t trace a supply path directly to a primary supply source, it can trace it via one or more secondary supply sources instead.
A secondary supply source for a unit is:
ï an HQ the unit co-operates with (see 18.1); or
ï the capital city of a minor country controlled by the unit’s major power; or
ï the capital city of a major power, or a minor country, conquered by the unit’s major power, or by a major power the unit co-operates with.
A secondary supply source of the tracing unit must be able to trace a supply path either to a primary supply source or via another secondary supply source. That other secondary source must also be able to trace a supply path either to a primary source or via another secondary source, and so on.
There can be any number of secondary supply sources in this chain but it must end up at a primary supply source of the unit tracing the path.
And now that I look at it, what you quote is for restoring units, although it alludes the supply rule generally.
As for the 1 hex tracing, thanks again, I had been looking for this rule, it comes handy.
