I was wondering about the advantages and disadvantages of assigning SU from HQs to the divisions. When I assign them to an infantry division, one advantage is that the leader doesnt have to do an admin check when initiating a battle to transfer the SU to the division. Will there be other advantages like using the SU in more than one battle initiated by different divisions (if the admin check is a success)?

I am guessing you mean it does not have to do a ratings check to commit (not assign) an SU to a battle in which the unit is in?

The advantage of the SU being directly assigned to a division is you have 100% certainty it will be in every battle its parent division is in. The disadvantage is you have 100% probability it will not be in any battle the units is not in - if it were left in the HQ it could participate in battles with multiple different units assigned to the same HQ.

Also note once directly assigned it will cost one point to unassign, where as you can always redistribute HQ SUs for free using the support level system. The SU logistics will be based on the location of the division not the HQ - and as this is frequently further forward it does mean it will get less supplies etc. A non-motorised SU assigned to a motorised division will also have to temporarily motorise, so may need to take more vehicles out of the pool too.

That was also my idea! :) Thx

I did not think of that. Thx! :)
