I may be repeating myself, but here's a suggestion I've had in the past.

The outcome of campaigns etc in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, European and western USSR theater definitely had an influence on the availability of men and materials in the Pacific theater. Currently this is only simulated by required withdrawls of Royal Navy ships and by the variable arrival dates choices.

Why not extend withdrawls to Soviet and US units? Had the German campaigns in the USSR gone better for them, the Soviet units in Siberia would have certainly been used to some extent. Had the Germans had more success in the Atlantic, more DDs, DEs, CVEs, tankers and cargo ships would have been kept there and maybe even taken from the Pacific.

The easiest would be to increase the variable arrival dates choices to include +/- 120 days and even +/- 240 days or more if that is possible (I gather these are hard coded somewher in the software, unfortunately). This solution, though, does not take care of withdrawls.

You might want to read all the "official" AE threads from the beginning. In doing so you will find that unit withdrawal is completely revamped.

Thanks for the thread reference. It's a start. I would like this for LCU's and air units too, though.

Or again as an alternative to all this a larger range for the variable availability settings...

I believe some of the LCUs have a "disband" date set for them in the new expansion.
