Enough food in SHQ's inventory? Check.
Wrong, there was not enough food in the SHQ when it gets sent to the Units.
SHQ > Units is before
Zone > SHQ
Like I said: "I'm sure there's a very good reason why more food wasn't delivered to those units". Thank you for both providing the reason and demonstrating my point. Nothing in the interface makes that clear. Quite the contrary, the interface hides information (actually it provides that information, but always 1 turn off, which makes no sense, as it's not very useful to only be informed of stuff after the fact).
Now if I want to know if my units will receive supplies the following turn? Unless absolutely nothing changes in terms of how many supplies troops/zones need, the only way to know for sure is to calculate everything, because if I build one new formation or start building/complete an asset, nothing in the interface will give me a preview of how much stuff I will need to move around to satisfy the demand.
Have you looked at the Assets under the management screen?
You and the rest, you forgot the first rule of the fanatic: When you become obsessed with the enemy, you become the enemy.
