Hi ReadyR, sorry didn't see your post earlier. The inland port system works everywhere you see inland ports - not only in Burma but also in India, China, the DEI, Australia etc. Building a port level will increase the supply cap, regardless of the location of the base. So "building inland port" means "building transportation infrastructure" - building and improving roads and railroads. Usually the potential port sizes are pretty low, which means only minor improvements can be made, but you may notice that the bases along the Burma-Thailand Death Railway, the Ledo Road and the Assam Railway have high potential port sizes and thus allow considerable improvements of the suply cap levels - this represents the major projects undertaken during the war to build/improve these LOCs.
About the fragment, I don't see it in my game. In the editor, the only unit assigned to Coimbatore is the 1/2 South India Base Force. The 7th Naval ConstBn starts at Truk. Maybe something happened in your game during the loading/unloading and the move to Tulagi that created that fragment due to a glitch in the turn execution? I have seen such "ghost fragments" once or twice in my games after a ship carrying a fragment of a unit got sunk. Maybe an Allied sub saved some survivors and they were put in a POW camp in India!
