Just trying to understand supply depots and require some clarification.
Extends the range of a supply chain if it is in supply itself from main or port supply or another supply
depot. The supply depot chain can be extended 3 times
So from the pic below:
Tubruk (has a main supply icon at it's port: size 4)
Therefore the supply depots that the Axis captured to extend supply lines are:
#1 (83,16) the SD below Tubruk
#2 (98,14) Sid Barrani
#3 (105,12) Chain ends.
These are being supplied by Tubruk and are the chain of 3. However,
there are two ports near by, Bardia (92,16) (Port Size 0) and Marsa Matrah (107,12) (Port Size 1). In fact, Marsa Matrah is at the end of the chain and providing port supply to the region past the supply depot chain. I'm wondering why #4, Buggush (116,10) is at supply level 1. If Marsa Matruh is providing port supply for the region, would this not start a new chain of three supply depots and Buggush should be at supply level 9? Is it because Marsa Matrah is not a main supply source(no supply icon at the port like Tubruk)?
