Gibraltar is in German hands and Japan has emptied some Sea Areas east of Africa from allied convoys.
Now the allied forces in Egypt should be OOS, you may think.
Wrong (at least according to my 2.7.5 game):
CW forces in Egypt trace to Haile Selassie who has setup in Djibouti and who traces back to Addis Ababa and everybody is in supply and happy.
Well, all coastal forces, that is! The ones one or two hexes inland are OOS, even though they are also CW and can trace to Wavell (who is in supply from Selassie).
Now this confuses me... What is going on .
The rules say a unit must be able to trace back to a primary supply source, and there is none. Addis Ababa only is a secondary for CW units, since its liberation. However, I can see that Addis Ababa is a primary for Selassie... who then ?supplies the CW troops in Egypt?
But if that's the case, then why are the units OOS that have to trace via Wavell -> Selassie. They are in desert hexes in fine weather, perfectly able to trace to Wavell who is in a coastal hex and thus able to trace to Selassie...
Does this all sound correct or is there something buggy going on???
