I have tested this in Barbarossa scenario.Trying to resupply a panzer unit ,i noticed that the fuel of the unit decrease instead to increase at each air drop.Is normal or is a bug?

Just to check are you looking at the fuel dumps in the supply details which should increase - but are damaged until next turn. Or are you looking at the ready fuel this turn which will decrease as your vehicles use up MPs picking up the airdrops?

I have supplied with airdrop ,at the start of the turn,a panzer division but i have seen the number of the fuel decresing instead of increasing.The same seem happen when there is a capture of supply but being the unit in movement is less understandable if is due to the movement or not.
You say that the unit lose fuel picking up the airdrop,if so which is the advantage of the airdrop?
The mechanics of the airdrop is again not clear to me.
I have finished the scenario with a defeat and i have found another surprise.During the mud turns all the unit have a CV of 1 so is not possible to have a combat.I have not found this rule into the manual.The manual is very complex and for the moment i have readed only the main rule to play Barbarossa,at least i think.

Did you check whether you were dropping supply or fuel? If you do not do it manually the AI can choose to drop supply not fuel.

How many tonnes of fuel did you drop - if it was very little you may well find it costs more in fuel to drive around picking it up than the amount you actually get. (Tip: do it at the end of the turn when the Panzers have no more MPs left to lose!)

Check the fuel totals in the supply details of the unit - do not rely on the first fuel total number on the front of the unit details. Whatever the case air dropped fuel is damaged until next turn - it will not contribute to fuel levels this turn.

The advantage of air dropping fuel if done in sufficient quantities is that you should have more movement points next turn - not this one.

Any fuel or supply captured by a unit goes to its HQ, it does not stay with the unit itself.

on mud and the manual read the chapter called weather.

Frankly speaking i have not checked this detail.I must study better this part.
About the mud turn ,i have readed the whather chapter but i have not found that all unit(also the enemy) have only 1 combat value.
