They were moved from the Western Front Box, after spending three months there, to Berlin, then by Rail to a level four Deport. Upon arrival at the Deport, they had zero trucks.
This was a manual transfer.
how many trucks do you have in the overall pool? how many in the level 4 depot - and remember that priority is not really what draws trucks.
Truck shortages can get masked in the Theatres.
In the other thread you wrote:
It's turn 48 and I am not in a complete mess so far.
What mess are we due to get into?
well if you overcommit to the Soviet front, this sort of thing, also as the game progresses the moves needed to balance the Theatres gets more and more complex - requirements increase, many units have multiple transfers (& if you clear one, you clear them all).
Pragmatically, I'd send these units back to Berlin to draw trucks from the NSS.
I'm not sure I follow here - This unit spent a month off map, a week sat outside Berlin, and then migrated by rail to the front line arriving with zero trucks, not less than it should, not 90% or 40% but not a single truck in sight, and you think I should send it back for a few months hanging around?
And this definately isn't a result of overcommitting to the Russian front, all my Theaterboxes are between 110% and 150% of required capacity. If anything this is undercommiting, surely?
Also is the number of trucks in the reciving deport relevent? Organic trucks are surely part of the unit, if you move a unit by rail it isn't leaving behind every single truck it has at the start, and then picking up an entire batch of new trucks when it arrives, is it? If I move unit X from A to B, aside from breakdowns it should arrive with the same number of trucks it left A with, right?
