Am very confused about how Korps work. The Manual says:
Units are deemed “in the Command Chain” if they belong
to an Army which is, in turn, attached to an Army Group (also
sometimes called the GHQ, Great Headquarter). Any Units which
don’t belong to such an Army are considered independent Stacks
for Command Chain purposes, and they have a penalty of -50% to
the Command Points generated by the leaders in that Stack. Naval
Stacks are handled differently without a hierarchy other than Units
On the map, you can then have three kinds of land Stacks:
• The Army Group (or GHQ) Stack, which is the Stack
commanding subordinate Armies.
• The Army Stack, which is a Stack subordinate to an Army
Group or GHQ Stack.
• Independent Stack, which is a Stack Out of the Command
These three Stacks each have Units and they are all “containers”
for Units. Units represent formations of various sizes and act as
“containers” for elements, with from 1 to 9 elements in each Unit.
1) In the very first sentance what does "belong" mean?
2) Pretty sure i'm wrong here but doesn't the above mean a Korps in a region on its own is always an Independent stack? If so they don't seem to be suffering a command penalty, (it still shows as 24 for a 2 star general, and to make matters more confusing the manual says it should be 36).
Sorry to spam all these questions but am trying to understand the mechanics and am beginning to think my biggest mistake was reading the manual :(
