in ver 1.11.01 in german transport airgroup, aircraft do not transfer from the reserve (28 ас) to ready (9 ас), this happens not only in one mission. Supply OK. Is it bag?


Yes. Intended to be fixed in an upcoming patch. Introduced in an earlier patch as an unintended consequence of an attempt to nerf German air supply, I think. Did a really good job.

Yes, it's a problem that will be corrected in next patch. You have to move them to reserve or have at least 100% fuel needs in an airbase to increase the speed of conversion from reserve to ready.

Return from reserve to ready always required at least 100% fuel need in airbase, unlike return from damaged to ready (don't know why).
Earlier transports became damaged after flying air supply missions, but thinking it's too severe I changed this to becoming reserve.
This made the first issue very visible.

I can confirm the problem, this is caused by a secret fix which prevented certain cheat from working. I will try to push a fix for this as soon as possible.

Questions here or in the WitE Discord channel. There are patch notes for each of the patches since 1.7 but nothing more than that. Still waiting on WitE 2.0...

Is some of the information presented in the video relevant to WITE? As I understand it the soviets had no corp structure in 42. I this correct?

Is there any advantage to assigning "reserve" USSR Army HQs from STAVKA, to a static Front HQ far behind the front? (FX. Orel, Kharkov. N. Caucusus Front HQs, etc.) The Front or STAVKA HQ will be out of range to support (right?) so isnt it better to keep the Armies under STAVKA and their (presumably) better leader?

This seems somewhat counter-intuitive since Id like to sort out my armies in colour codes along the forming front as the game develops...

How important is the Front/AG commanders Stats? Is Fx. a low Mech rating very detrimental or useful? As per above, many times, this HQ wont be in range to support its subordinates under Army/Corps command. Im hestitant to put Soviet armour under bad Mech Rating Front commanders, but I dont know how much it really matters.

The morale stat is very important as it never has any penalties for range or for being over the command capacity limit. The others get increasingly less useful the further away from the unit. That is not to say they are ever detrimental, there is always some positive effect (ratings are never out of range), but it will start to become vanishingly small. Generally I would ignore the mech rating of front commanders and only look at army commanders. Whether that number is large or not is so many times more important that it is a bit like worrying over the molehill (front stats) when you should be looking at Everest (army stats). Only look at the non-morale stats of a front commander if they are very close to the unit anyway - or you are a real femto manager.

Yes as it still adds an extra layer of ratings checks - remember they are always positive not matter how far away although they can be very small. Occasionally it can be a bad idea if your next highest leader (e.g. STAVKA) has much much better stats than the level you were going to skip out (e.g. Front) - in which case you would be better off losing one level of ratings checks but having the top one with smaller modifications to their stats. If they are about the same or close then you will always be better off having as many levels of command as possible no matter how far they are away. Again there is no such thing as being our of range for support. The only support given by the higher HQs is ratings which only diminish with distance.

There is an option to colour your armies, or even individual units, in any colour you like. So there is no need to keep a unit or formation in a particular command structure for it to have any particular colour.

One thing: because of the range penalties on higher headquarter skill checks (aside from morale), I tend to put the Front HQ's within (if possible) three hexes of their army HQ's. Ideally, you want the Army HQ five hexes from its combat units, and then the Front HQ three hexes farther back. And, as Tele said, bad ratings do not reduce the combat effectiveness of the unit, they just don't enhance it. You always have some chance to have an effect.

And don't overload your fronts. Generally, four armies and one independent corps (those airborne corps HQ's work well) is the ideal lineup for a front.
