Then, 3 regiments are not as resistant to damage as is a full division,
To begin with, no I didn't save the link, and yes I'm still kicking myself in the butt. A short time back I was looking for something else when I came upon a Dev's statement that addressed this piece of 'Forum Lore'. He stated that in all testing that they had done in this matter when the '3 regiments' are operating in the same hex they would perform at so close to the combined unit as to be negligible. I'm paraphrasing here, but not altering what was said.
As to the thread, I can't see exactly why the unit won't combine. I'm coming up to a point in my game as Japan where I will have the same situation. All children assigned to one HQ, and the 'full unit' assigned to another. If I remember I will post when the time comes. Its about a game month away, and that's about 1 and 1/2 months for me so...
For the record, when I split a unit I turn 'upgrades' off as a rule. Doesn't mean I haven't forgotten from time to time.
