I have several US marine regiments assaulting Canton island. The defenders are still holding out and I need to get more supplies landed. If we land supplies with an amphibious supply drop, I'm pretty sure that triggers a shock attack, that I really don't want to make yet. Can anybody confirm?
Can we land supplies to troops attacking an atoll by fast transport without the troops on the island automatically shock attacking?

You need a seperate TF that is carrying nothing but supplies (preferably in amphibious mode) so it can unload at the same time your troops go ashore.  If you rely on the supplies the troop ships carry they won't unload that until all the troops are unloaded first.  You can also put supply only ships in the assault TF and that will work too.

I don't think unloading supplies only will trigger the shock attack; troops unloading is the only trigger for that IIRC.

supplies are going in then! Amphib and fast transport. But if you're wrong John, you'll have a lot of pixel blood on your hands...:)
