So according to you a German artillery regiment can drag 36 guns, ammo, sighting equipment, communications equipment, all the other paraphernalia related to the regiment, lay the guns, set up coms in half a day without the need for any transport of any kind. Not even one horse. Don't forget you are not just moving the guns. You are moving the regiment. Everything. Every tent, every stove, every sock, every bean. Everything. In half a day. And at the end of that move ,without any transport, you're ready to go. If your troops can still stand up.
What about the larger guns?
No. The txp for the guns is the only thing missing. Logistical txp must still be in place. Otherwise, the guns wouldn't even be able to fire. (no ammo).
So let me get this straight. Instead of using the transport to move the guns they use it to move the tents? Right. Unless you missed it there is zero transport in the unit and in any artillery unit the guns come first.
What amazes me is the lengths you go to so you can be right about so many different subjects. No one ever runs out of fuel because they siphon it from other vehicles. No one ever runs out of ammo because they don't shoot their weapons. No one ever runs out of food because they eat their shoes. The list goes on and on. Trouble is, units did run out of fuel and ammo in the real world. But not in yours.
Oh, and the one that really gets me is how a unit can lose vehicles 200 km behind enemy lines because they and somehow that same vehicle ends up in the replacement pool good as new.
Tom is right. There are guns that should not move at all without transport assigned to the unit. Period. Anything else is just foolishness or a pathetic attempt to be correct. Or both.
In any event this has run it's course for me. Any replies to the contrary of the statement directly above would have to come straight from Bizarro World.
