Do LCUs take on obsolete replacements?

Say the LCU has in its ToE 100 infantry type 42 squads but the unit is still equipped with type 41 squads. Will it accept type 41 replacements or will it wait until it can upgrade to type 42?

My understanding is that it will take 41 replacements up to it's TOE or until there are enough 42 devices in the pool to do a 1 for 1 swap for it's current squads.

The 41's will go back into pool and will be upgraded to 42's.

having said all that I still find it confusing and just when I think I have it figured out.......

Dave, from my experience (much more limited than many here) your understanding is correct.

Do older squad types in the pools upgrade while in the pools? I've got 500 AIF infantry 42 in the pools but all my aussie troops want AIF infantry 43 units. I'm thinking I may have made a huge mistake in not using up those AIF 42 squads while my OZ units still wanted them and that now I'll have 500 wasted Australian troops sitting in the pools for the rest of the war

I checked tracker, and I'm still using some obsolete chinese replacement squads (number available is declining and number used is increasing).

I can't say it always happens, but I have objective evidence it does happen.

Interesting erstad, I also checked with tracker and learned that some units take on all kind of devices but not obsolete ones when the ToE wants something newer. Can't say that it is always this way just noticed some cases. I assume there must be something that causes the different behaviour. My units were all restricted ANZAC, how about yours?

I have both restricted and unrestricted chinese units taking replacements, so I can't say which have the obsolete squads. (Unlike some of the other nationalities, there's no way that I see to tell which Chinese squad type a unit has).

All I know is that Tracker is reporting that my pool of obsolete squads is diminishing (as is my pool of current squad types)
