well I notice when I move units - armored units in particular, I lose about half the CV in a long move. (even just moving them around in Britain, for example) is that from fatigue? why would they have so much fatigue if they are armored/motorized? I would think the foot units would suffer the fatigue more from long moves
It's a combination of things, but using up your fuel is one of them and gaining fatigue is another. A third is that we recently found that long distance moves were causing huge damage to AFVs. Of course we wanted some attrition, but not to the level we were seeing. So we reduced the level of attrition on these long distance moves and that change is in the 1.00.37 public beta version. That will help, especially since AFVs are worth a lot of CV. Even so, you will see your units drop in CV if they move a lot. One thing you can do is refuel them on the move. Great if you can move adjacent to an airbase and then fly in some air transport to the airfield. You can drop directly on the unit, but it's much more efficient if there's an airbase to land on. Also, keep in mind that during combat you have a chance of being resupplied, so if you're logistics situation is good, you may end up fighting much better than your stated CV indicates. Of course if you've just moved a long way, you're probably a long way from your depots. Units are most vulnerable to a counterattack after one of these long marches far from depots.
