...I took a peek under the hood and found that despite it already being T2, the unit itself still has a severe shortage of 105mm Howitzers.... Enquiring minds want to know. Some sleuthing is in order.
Larry, this is an aspect of the game that I've been trying to figure out, too, because I see the same types of things going on in the games I'm playing.
For me, I first noticed it when looking for RR engineers replacements in my D21 game (turns out, I think, that I did not have any "slots" for the computer to assign the units, but it was a wash anyway b/c of Soviet auto-repairs of rail lines.)
In this case, it looks like the slots are there, but the replacements are just not going there. I am wondering now, if maybe for those slots that are open, receipt of any replacements are dependent upon supply lines or some other factor, that is either set by the scenario designer or dependent on the computer calculations?
Just guessing, but I am interested to know how that works in more detail.
I am only guessing. But I'll bet that Mr. Cross might be able to share some insight on how the replacements are "placed" and how that all works.
