Actually, the other thing that should be implemented is a requirement to represent a Transport Ship pipeline ... for short distances in the ETO it isn't needed, but for long cross-Atlantic or Pacific distances it IS needed.

What do I mean? Well, to maintain a Transport Ship pipeline you need a constant flow of ships IN the pipeline ... the further you get away from your ultimate supply source, the more ships you need. About 40% heading out, 40% heading back and 20% being unloaded at the destination at any given time for something like a cross Atlantic invasion.

So, each invading Strength point requires MORE Transport points to 'carry' it ... in this case, FIVE TIMES more than it would for a short hop across the Med or English Channel. So the Germans would have to have 150 Transport Points to move a single Large Infantry Corps ... and probably double that for a Mechanised or Armour Corps. And that would realistically apply to Amphibs as well.

Makes a Canadian invasion attempt closer to being impossible ... realistically so.

I think, you missed my point.
It is not the question (for me), whether Canada can raise troops or if German troops can beat them.
The supply mechanism and the naval model needs to be looked at by Alvaro.
A secure supply line from Germany to Canada should have a probability of around zero, making any invasion a suicide mission.

Supply to ports presently is not precisely working.

Germans can draw supply from Baku as port - simply because it's a port.
Or Malta is still supplied even if Allies have lost Gibralatar and Suez Channel.
