Working on a historical scenario for the first day of the Suez crossing in '73 (Chinese 1)
Question regarding "rafts"......are these one time units in crossing the canal? If you load a 6 strength infantry platoon onto a 6 strength raft unit and cross the canal and then unload, how do you get the rafts back across the canal to pick up the next wave? I get an error message that says "unit cannot move without a passenger". Historically, the 247th only had so many rafts (34 to be exact). Does this also apply to the Unifloats ( I believe are the "crewed boats" in the game. Thanks. The scenario I'm working on is pretty intense given the historically reduced strength of the 14th Armored and 247th Para Brigade. Any thoughts?

I think the rafts are similar to motorcycles defined so you have two options. Either you can only transport 34 units or you can add more rafts

I would use the crewed boats, then your shores aren't littered with empty rafts
