Is there way to resupply ground forces? I have read somewhere that if an ammo truck is available that you can automate or set manual resupply.

In the Cross border skirmish scenario in Shifting Sands, a number of vehicles, particularly the IDF jeeps with RR run out of ammo after an engagement with En Arty and AA, resulting in no weapon available in the manual attack options.

I have looked at editing the scenario out of interest to add an ammo truck for Israel. However, there appears to be no option to add a ground vehicle at all to a side from the Add new unit panel...just Aircraft, Surface Ship

Hi pbrowne,

Yes, ground units (called 'Facilities' whether they are vehicles, troops or buildings) will resupply from 'Munitions' magazines of other ground units in their group.

To add an ammo truck to your scenario:

Press Insert or Ctrl+Right Click > Add Unit
Click on the desired position
Select 'Facility' from the Type drop-down box
Enter 'ammo' into the Class field
Select "Vehicles (Ammo Truck x 4) -- Generic (Generic)" from the results
Click OK

To add weapons to your newly placed ammo truck:
Select the newly added unit and click 'Magazines' in the right hand side Unit Status bar
Select the Magazine named 'Munitions' and click the 'Add Weapons' button
Locate and add your desired weapon record by clicking 'Add Selected'

As a practice point, it's generally a good idea to add the 0/10000 record and set the number of weapons manually, however this is not strictly necessary

To enable transfer of weapons from the ammo truck to different units either group them together (select the relevant units and press G) or order the (ungrouped) units to replenish by right clicking the unit, then selecting 'Replenish if possible' from the context menu and choosing the appropriate option.
