I'm playing the soviet side against the AI (trying to learn how to handle the Soviets). Version 1.12.05 Beta.
It's April '42. I have about 40 RR Construction Brigades with at least 90% TOE. I don't believe I get any controllable repair units like the Axis. But there doesn't seem to be much repairing going on. If I click on a unit in the Commander's Report it takes me to a brigade in the HQ that built it. Do I have to do something to turn them on?

Also, in the hot keys the ctrl 0-9 don't work as far as I can tell. The other hot keys seem to be fine.

And I know the AI isn't that great, but it's only my second soviet game. I have a lot to learn. Thanks

HQs will only deploy const units up to their command range so they are best attached to Fronts or STAVKA and not Armies and certainly not corps. This is the same as the Germans.

Thr ctrl-# keys don't work if you have certain map display functions turned on so make sure they are all off and then try.

The control + # keys also don't work if you have a stack of non-combat units next to an enemy unit (as a result of moving off a combat unit from the stack). They will be highlighted red and preclude other highlighting.

Another consideration is that the automated rail repair units have a limit upon which they will be placed from the front line. I'm sorry I don't recall it off the top of my head, but something like at least 5 hexes from the front line the AI won't auto repair in order to not put RR units at risk.

Soviets have to wait until they get on map RR units to repair up to the front line.

Thanks to all. I'm in 1942 and now that I have them working they are actually getting in the way at the front line.

You can press return to HQ if they are getting in the way
