So fuel and supplies ran out on turn 5 and the panzers can't attack deliberately to get past the river(Dnepr) there.
What went wrong? Supplying the divisions with planes is so inefficient it's practically useless or I'm doing something wrong.
Should I have used HQ buildup some turn?

Logistics is a decisive part of WITE

How far from the HQ is your Pzd?
How far from the railhead is your HQ?

You need to coordonate rail repair and axes of attacks.

And of course HQBU helps a lot

Off rail MP 32
Off rail range 20
The Pzd are just a few hexes more to the east. I've tried to be efficient with rail repairs but I'm not sure how you even do it except with the big rail building units

Make sure you're ArmyGroups have plenty of construction units. They'll automatically sent them to patch up rear area's, they usually start farthest and work their way forward. They will not help the FDB units however.
Construction units don't help in RR conversion at Corps level.
Armies can help but they are usually to far forward but if not, they will help with lateral RR conversion.
One trick that used to work well is to use those security Army HQ's, add 4 construction units and place them within 5 hexes of what you want done. Keep in mind they will never RR repair stretches if the main line isn't ahead.

I cannot attach the construction units to the RHG Command. The HHQ button of the units is greyed out!

Use the assign button
If there are no construction units available, it's because they are probably still on the map so return them to the AG the RHG is attached too.

If the construction units are on map or certain other restrictions they cannot be reassigned.

HQ Buildup is probably the number one war winning tool for the Axis especially at the start. Practically every turn you should be looking to do an HQ buildup for your panzer corps and it is a top priority for use of your admin points. If your panzer corps are too far out of range it can even make sense to move them backwards so that they are in range for a buildup.
