Is there any list of supply consumed by device, unit, aircraft or a way to calculate it? For example how an armored division differ from an infantry division regarding supply consumption in the game? Artillery? repairs?
Also how much it difference in supply consumption from being in combat or being just still/garrison duties behind front line- so without combat?

Those should answer most of your questions.

Klink, Oberst

I think you are asking for scenario design purposes, but if you want to know how many supplies a unit in-game will use on any given day... divide its supply required number by 30 and round up to the nearest integer.

Yes Lokasenna it is for scenario design proposes.

Edit:
I wanted to find a way to have a calculation for production necessary to handle a certain quantity of LCU's and aircraft units but it is probably impossible.

Alfred's excellent Logistics 101 has is another good place for aircraft and mission cost. Less detailed on LCUs.

I don't think it's impossible.

I am pretty sure that you can have a reasonable enough idea of how much supply a unit would need. I'm not at all certain, but I think the amount required (not in combat) is about 1 supply per device per month. So if you have a unit with 310 devices in its TOE, I think its supply required when at rest might be 310?

Or maybe it's not. I couldn't quickly find a source, which is why I didn't mention it before.

The idea was to have a very close call between supply production to historical war production/ use , but there are too many variables so the idea now is just to get the Japanese values in game compare them to historical, get a % of that based on war production, GDP and resource production based on League of the Nations for Italy/Axis.

Besides that was to have a similar needs of transport to Libya.
I already have to make an hack having 270-300 High Industry in Libya otherwise most ship tankers would stand still since neither land or air units have fuel consumption.
