Can anyone please summarize how the new supply system works in terms of drawing supply for airbases?

I am under the impression that airbase unit supply amounts are only for airbase ground elements. I also am under the impression that they draw from nearby cities for supply. However, after fully running out bombers in turn one bombing, I don't seem to see a change in any supply/fuel amounts in nearby cities (all still at 100%), and the airbase's own supplies aren't changed. What should I be looking at to gauge how many missions I can run (and reserve for enemy phase missions)?

The percentage will not change (it's calculated during logistics phase and remains constant during player turn), you'd have to observe actual stockpile numbers.

Thanks! What determines which city airbases draw from? Simply closest? If I move the airbase towards another city, will it draw from that one?

In addition, then, is the vehicle cost of moving airbases greatly decreased due to lack of within-airbase supplies, i.e., the only drawback is some minor plane damage?

If you are moving airbases with airplanes in them then you may be using more of their air miles driving over ground than in the air. Airgroups historically were not packed into lorries and driven overground but flown from airbase to airbase. My recomendation is only move airbases overground when they have no airgroups on them.
