When raising a new formation, the checkbox, "Use SHQ troops," allows previously recruited replacements to reduce the total recruitment requirements, but the player still needs to provide 50 % of the remainder, not 50 % of the formation total.

For example, say I have 5000 Infantry as replacements but 0 available recruits. I cannot then raise the formation from just my available 5000 SHQ Infantry, as I still need to provide another 250 recruits. This seems unintended behavior and feels a bit pedantic.

Agreed; that said I have a bias against the 50% restriction in the first place. I think SHQ troops and equipment should definitely count, but you may not being seeing the whole picture at the first screen (see below).

You can work around the restrictrions with upgrades too, so long as you have enough for the most basic unit or formation (i.e. independent battalion or brigade OOB).

I have suggested just enough to fulfill the 100 troops in each unit created. At the players option, allow raising the unit as a straw-man and allow the replacement system to fill it up. I am unaware of how this could be used as an exploit other than perhaps disposable blocking formations. Perhaps make the units immobile until they reach 50%. Raise Formation is already restricted to a friendly supply route with a connection to the SHQ.

The other issue is that unless you get to the next screen (per the image)--to complete the raise formation command, so you can't see the numbers being used for 50% -- troops, items, logistics -- and the costs, which is very helpful. It maybe that once you select models, you are below 50%.

In any event, we should always be able to get this screen.
