I am baffled. My WHITE 74th Chinese Corps in scen 100 is frozen into some kind of a disablement stasis. Exp 35/morale 35, undisables 1-3 squads each turn max. The 10th Chinese Corps in the same city is GREEN, and undisables 6-8 devices per turn. Dividing into ABC of course works in general, however I find it tedious to browse through divided units icons in big bases like Chungking or Tacoma, so I try to keep all div/corps LCUs undivided.
The game engine does replacements/support operations on units in index number order. If you 74th Corps has a much higher index number than other Chinese units present, the latter would get support points and replacement devices first (assuming all have "replacements allowed". There is also some influence from the Admin. Skill of the unit leaders, but I am not clear on just how much it affects things. I don't know if the Corps/Area HQ assignment alignment has a big bearing either, but I believe it helps somewhat with Admin. tasks.
I hate this kind of 'feature'.
Either the player should be allowed to specify priority, or there should be a rational basis (like admin ability) for ordering. Even if that rational basis is semi-random.
Ditto for TF execution order...
Your control requires you to shut off replacements for other units, but I am not sure if the allocation of support to reduction of disablements is affected by this.
I put this in the same category with the fact that you cannot decide the priority for repairs to your base's forts, port, airfield services or runways. There are times when you have no intention of bringing in aircraft yet but you still get the runways and airfield services fixed first ...
