Sorry guys, i dont really get the manual. I know you must have the HQ next to your unit for it to resupply fully and your unit must be able to trace a 'line of communication' to a supply source. So my questions are:
1. As an example, i have an artillery unit that is like 5, 6 hexes away from the HQ. Everytime the supply will be around 9 to 20 percent. I use it to bombard an enemy location 3 times every turn. So how do i actually get the resupply rate to increase?
You can move the HQ adjacent to the artillery (provided it is cooperative). If you have a cooperative Supply Unit available, you can move it adjacent as well. You can rest the artillery (no movement or combat), allowing it to resupply quicker. Otherwise, you must increase the location supply values. This is done by improving the supply net. This can be done in various ways. One is to shorten the line of communication (removing blocking enemies and repairing bridges, etc.). Another is to advance the supply source closer (usually this means rail repair, but it could mean capturing closer supply sources). Finally, a Supply Unit can enhance location supply if available.
2. What is a line of communication? Is it the supply number on each hex? The manual doesnt really claerly state it
Yes it does. See 9.1.7.
3. What is a support unit? The manual says support units can boost supply redistribution capabilities. Are they like the trucks?
Supply Unit, not support unit (that's something else). A supply unit is any unit with the Supply Unit Icon. (See 16.1)
4. How do you cut the enemy supply? I know the manual says taking over a nearby enemy supply source can reduce the unit supply. But do getting behind the enemy so as to act like a barrier between the single enemy unit and the units behind cut their supply?
Again, see 9.1.7.
5. What other supply sources are there other than HQ, cities, and ports?
Those are NOT supply sources. Only Supply Points and repaired rail lines that connect to Supply Points are supply sources. Adjacent cooperative HQs can enhance supply (if it is already available via some other source). Cities and Ports have nothing to do with supply (unless the designer has placed a supply point there).
