Just wondering:
If I move land base air by rail, it cost 15% effectiveness loss. If I fly them to a different location then I lose 8% effectiveness. If I load them on ships and the stay at sea, then they lose 5% effectiveness per turn. However, if I load them on ships and move from port to port, their is no effectiveness loss. Just wondering why port to port movement doesn't impact effectiveness of land base air?

Because I didn't think about it.

Correct. That to me this is a big issue and I consider it a bug.

Units travelling by sea should be in worse shape than by rail.
5% loss travelling across the Atlantic? It is over 3000 miles by sea that they travel to get to the UK...
By rail from Moscow it is half that distance...yet units lose more effectiveness.

Infantry were never trained to travel by sea and many MANY soldiers got sea sick.
Armor takes quite a while to unload in port as does air.

Only Marine units should be less affected.

Hopefully this is addressed in the Pacific.
