Noob Question 7 - Railhead Repair - 8/26/2013 10:44:44 AM

When using using FBD/NKPS rail repair units to manually repair/extend the railhead why does it sometimes cost 1 RRV to repair a hex, but sometime cost 3?

It says in the manual that "A hex is eligible for FBD/NKPS repair if... not in the Baltic zone within 4 hexes of a railhead." Does this mean that, outside the Baltic zone, effectively only 4 hexes of rail could be repaired/extended in any one turn? Does that therefore also mean there is no point putting two FBD/NKPS rail repair units on the same line?

Thanks for your help.

Baltic Zone rails were the same gauge (rail width) as the Western European rails so were easier to repair and get running - so they cost only 1 RRV.

Once you are outside the Baltic Zone, each hex costs 3 RRV to repair and there is a limit of 4 hexes per turn - the only time you get a benefit for using two FBD units would be through newly captured territory or high movement cost terrain. Or if the rail splits into multiple rail lines.

Think also that the FBDs must be at the end of a continuous rail line. Axis seem to suffer breaks from partisan attacks; need to search out any break and repair with the FBDs.
