Support is important to recovery. The unit should have more support than necessary for each device: i.e. a green support number. High morale, low fatigue, and no disruption are also important. So, stacked in the same hex as an HQ or base force is important. Being in a base also helps: the larger the base the better. Also, it seems to me that the recovering devices check is similar and uses the same mechanics as the receive replacements check. Therefore, you want to be in a large base with 20k+ supplies. If you can trace a good supply path (major roads and railines) to other bases with 20K, this will also improve recovery time, in my experience. Finally, tests by various players have shown that unit commander administration has no effect on recovery of disabled squads. However, I firmly believe that the administration rating of a local army HQ commander will improve recovery rates for disabled squads.
Hope all of the helps. The 65th brigade will recover squads at the same rate as any other unit under the same conditions. It is a "squishy" in the sense that it a light brigade without any heavy support. This also makes it a good amphibious assault unit, for assaults on larger enemy positions, once the amphibious bonus expires. It is also entirely air-mobile. It is one of the most versatile units in the Japanese early-war arsenal and a very important LCU. It should see a lot of action in 1942, so you want to keep it in good shape and place it in positions where it can recover its devices quickly.
