This the Battle of Singapore scenario. The Japanese are advancing into Singapore Island where the Allies have retreated from Malaya. I just thought of cutting them at the crossing in hope that their supply lines will be cut off. But i m not sure if they can receive supplies from the sea, if so, my efforts are futile. Thanks!!

There is no Sea Supply here, so you don't have to worry about that. You can hit the Spacebar to hide all the units, and then you can see where the enemy Supply Points are [you might have to cycle thru the Supply Views] and if enemy units are connected to them.

No, they have a supply line tracing back to singapore. You have to interpose one of your units, cutting this line. It's a difficult task in this scenario, since mobility is a problem. A lot of traffic jam around. It`s a good scenario to practice the effect of unit density on mobility and losses. I wouldn't try to block supply lines in this scenario. It is short and you have to deal with mobility problems. I have had some success trying to free the highest mobility paths (roads, rail).
