Europe:early Italian Option, Axis mid-1944.
So this is becoming a World War and North America is beginning to be invaded by the Axis. I didn't know this but evidently the Axis can lose transport ships when they are attacked or intercepted by Allied air. This has left me with a reduced number of transports and even though I've scoured the countryside far and wide, I cannot find my complete complement of transports.
20 points are missing and I cannot find them.
It would be a good idea to mark embarked troops in the 'reports and statistics': units order of battle lineup, so one can quickly find embarked troops (that are "lost").

Good idea +1

The other problems that encourage this is the mixing in of transported troops with regular naval troops in a stack, rather than a separate counter (different color?) to allow special naval stacking or when one checks the unit box -- have a background beneath the font that is a different color. So with one look at a stack you can tell there is a transported combat unit.
Also a German transported embarked combat unit can get "lost" when it combines with say, an Italian naval unit -- the gray German transported unit "disappears" into the green of the Italian unit and then you have no idea what's what.

The 3rd number on the list of the fleet on the standard counter display shows the number of land and air units transported.

I see that now.
Middle number: # naval units.
1st number: # carriers(?)

Yes coloring the 3rd number only makes it confusing to see. I tried it before. The eye and mind can best discern between 2 different factors.
