Hi,

if a sovjet HQ unit is encircled and has many many support units like artillery regiments and tank battalions and the HQ unit managed to escape and not surrender( odds >70%) all support units still exists and have nearly 100% TOE. I consider this as a big bug because unrealistic.

I agree.

Did the Soviet HQ displace on its own between turns, or did one of your units move to an adjacent hex to force displacement?

The HQ unit was fully encircled in one turn and then attacked at the next.It managed to escape but with all heavy support units.

Read the manual on combat in particular on retreat losses. Each device has a P(x) of damage or destroy. If damages P(x) destroyed. I propose Just a bad die roll.

Manual covers this situation in 15.10 Displacement Moves. Old-timers like Crackaces have a better feel for the probability math in play for retreat attrition in SUs attached to a displaced HQ unit. P(X) was never a function I encountered in a decision matrix or loss projection in the US Army

Well P(x) is a replacement for "The notorious Gary Grisby die roll adjusted for undocumented constraints that over time simply puzzle us all ..." much more simply put P(x) ..

I can say on turn 11 "They crossed over the border .." I destroyed a bunch of Soviet flak attached to HQ units routing them out of a pocket.
