mcunnington -> Support Units and Support Level (7/17/2021 9:37:22 AM)

Hello all,
I'm fairly new to this game but I am really getting into it. I've watched a few videos and read some posts but I am a little confused regarding support levels.
I have set OKH to 9 and everywhere else to 0.
After the first turn (41-45 campaign) all of my support units have moved up a level and none are in my corps (except construction etc.).
I then set OKH to 0 and Army Groups to 2, Armies to 1 and Corps based on their divisional levels but the units do not move back down the chain after this turn.
Do I need to manually assign units from the HQ's to Corps then lock them?

I also tried sending everything to OKH (about 227 of them) but could only send those units to a few places. Is this because AG South etc is too far away?

Thanks guys,

Mark

You cannot set the support level to 0! In this case, the automatic movement of the support parts will only occur upwards, but not downwards. The minimum can be set to level 1 for OKH, headquarters of army groups and armies. Corps headquarters can be placed at any level, but if you put 0, then there will be only construction units and engineers.

Thank you for that. I see that this draws units up the chain but they need to be manually deployed downwards and then locked (if I wish).

Yes. Takes around 4 turn. Once any HQ has zero SU lock it (excluding engineers. You'll always have to them manually.

Some points.
Frozen SU cannot be moved.
You'll have to check HQs reinforcements.
SU directly attached to Div are not part of the system and must be moved manually.

Other SU stuff
This movement system has nothing to do with commitment of SU to combat.
SU will only be committed by their HQ if that HQ has ground units in combat. Therefore most SU shuold be attached to Corps, or for the Soviets, armies. (Their Corps HQs all disbamd).
Max range is upto 5 hexes (NOT movement points).
