Do RR Construction battalions help in constructing fortifications? Are they as effective as sapper or plain construction battalions?

Good question. I have not been able to figure out clearly what goes into the construction value. I have created fort units with three Sapper Regiments and had them have everything from 15 to 45 or so construction value. Same thing with construction battalions - I've had some that were worth 1 construction point and others with up to 10 or so.

Look at thir toes, to see if they have far less than a 100%. On top of that (altough I dont know if this is reflected on construction values, I think it isnt) experienced sappers dig much quicker than non experienced ones. Check their experience.

Regarding the OP question, I dont know.

Let's say I have a division building a fort. If I click on the TOE it says construction value 15. I presume that's the intrinsic value for the unit by itself, not the value used after factoring in sappers, civilian labor, weather, etc. Correct?

Correct. That is the value of the Division itself.

Offmap railroad units definitely contribute to fort building. On-map railroad units, including off-map units sent out by HQs, don't. As for the effectiveness, pioneer squads are more powerful man for man than labor squads, but some SUs have enormous amount of labor squads.

The value of the unit + the directly attached divisions.

This is only true for version 1.11.00+ (and some older versions which probably no one uses anymore).

It is definitely true for the beta. Play in a human versus human game, build a fort in a random hex as the soviets and attach 3 RR battalions to it. Turn 3, you'll have a level one fort.
