If you want to do air supply, make sure to zoom out. Eligible air bases for a mission will be highlighted in Yellow.
If you simply right click a supply mission, the program often gives you the no transport aircraft available message erroneously (probably because fuel is probably even in shorter supply than supplies for the unit, so all the program may be telling you is that fuel drop missions are unavailable.

Took me a full campaign season to figure out lol...

Actually, at first only bases that can do fuel drops are highlighted.

How do you tell the engine to highlight bases that can do supply drops?

oh yeah. keep the Ju 52 on a rail line or on a short tether. Then they are quite good. What is annoying is that I can't get the hang of putting the fighter escort bases near the front, on a direct minimum fuel requirement to tbe escorts. The engine does not seem to recognize that these escorts don't have to fly all the way back to the JU52 bases etc. Oh well, it isn't TOH_BTR but just sayin...

I use 2 AB's with 52's and 110's mixed in.

Generally speaking 52's see little Russian fighters the first 10 turns as Russians are running and rebuilding AF.
So 110's do just fine vs crappy Russian planes that do try to intercept, 42 is another story.
