How many engineers were present in the 3 BAF base forces and how many were disabled? I have seen this level of destruction in the Ironman scenarios as Japan where the allied AI has a large number of engineers on many bases. I have seen all the Miri oil and refineries destroyed for example. I have also witnessed the same at Soerabaja, if I recall correctly, with everything reduced to 0.
I don't have a pre-turn save, but after the retreat from the captured base, total non-disabled engineers in all four LCUs are on the order of six squads, and engineer vehicles about the same. The RAF BFs are pretty small, pre-war types.
I've seen total destruction of Oil at Pbang in an AI game, and I think my Lokasenna game saw Magwe Oil destroyed down to 2. I've just never seen a wipe across all types.
There was a thread recently that discussed the possibility of a bug in the latest version of the game because the "industry reduced to 0" result was happening almost all the time. There are some parts of industry that are supposed to reduce a set amount - Manpower reduces to two if the Allied player captures a base with manpower, and HI is supposed to reduce in half + a random amount damaged dependent on the battle odds and engineers, when either side captures a base. IME, if there is no HI, LI will often reduce in half + random damage. Resources might get damaged but are not supposed to be eliminated.
I'll look on the tech forum for that thread.
