Got the game for Christmas, playing as Japanese player vs. AI.
Want to make sure I understand this (please correct me if wrong):
1) To repair LI, HI, plane factories, engines factories, naval yard, merch. yard, repair yard, vech. factory, armament factory, manpower, resources, oil production, and oil refineries it costs 1,000 supplies and takes one day for each repaired.
2) For #1 to occur base must have 10,000 supplies or more.
3) For engine R&D and plane R&D factories (unrealistic R&D) does it cost supplies to repair?

You are correct for 1 and 2 (one thing worth noting though - you may want more than 10K supplies on hand if you are trying to do repairs in the same city on multiple factories. For example, with a city repairing HI, LI, and 2 different planes on R&D, you'd want to have 14K+ here, so that each factory would be able to repair, burn 1000 supplies, and still leave enough supply for the next factory to pass its 10K check.)

For number 3, factory repairs (of any type) require supplies.

Thanks Quixote.
I was afraid that #3 would cost supplies.
How does Japan ever get enough supplies to really do something?
(I know THEY DON'T).

Japan has enough to "do something" at the start of the war.  It is the reckless players who behave as if they are in a candy store who get into trouble in 1942.

I'm in 45 now and supplies area major concern, but there are many ways I could have changed the current situation if I'd been more aware, careful and balanced in my play earlier. Just don't do everything right away, realize you don't need ALL factories to be maxed, you don't need to use ALL RnD factories, and that the SRA is really what the Japanese need in the beginning of the game, not Fiji or Calcutta.
