..are you advising unit break-down here ?..if so, shame on you..
..however, i am getting the impression that t3 also takes into account enemy-controlled hexes when calculating supply,
I'm fairly sure you're wrong.
so maybe a full suround isn't needed any more..
For purposes of supply, you would only need two units, on opposite sides of the enemy unit. They would each block supply through two of the remaining four hexes. However the enemy unit would then be able to move, and that can only be allowed under certain circumstances. One could certainly give the enemy the freedom to move in some direction you find congenial- against the coast or a super river to reduce the number of surrounding units you need, toward some marshland, or into another pocket.
..maybe, it's the US civil war 2008 scen, and units that don't have a clear supply route under (unknown as yet) conditions, but not surrounded, lose the "disband" button, a sign of being out of supply..
..and that without having super-river or other uncrossable hex-sides in the calculation..
..thinking on't, in this scen, over 4 enemy controlled hexes
..i did say "impression"...
