I am playing against 115 Soviet AI with my logistics being 90. I have FDB on Vitebsk and Psov on turn 7 and have the option of doing Superdepots. I am wondering if people find superdepot over powered. As I want to keep supplies somewhat historical. I have a feeling that I shouldn't use it as HArdLuckYetAgain was saying it was overpowered.

IMO, Super Depots should only be used by late-war Soviets. In testing, it was found that standard supply flow was just not enough to fuel a 6.5 mil man Red Army with lots of Tanks and Vehicles; it was so much it was overwhelming the supply system. That's when you really need Super Depots, and they are legit use.

For 1941 Germans, they are WAY too powerful, that is what HLYA was mostly referring to. Probably similar for 1942 for both parties

I tend to agree it's pretty powerful. Even in winter you can easily refit (or nearly refit) an entire division per super depot per turn.

From a historically accurate perspective, is it OK as German player to use HQs on depots to get a boost? Only Corps level? Is Army level OK?

Yes the HQs on the depots is a necessary step for any nation as the increased efficiency at the depot is needed. The 'Super Depot' is the HQ AND a stationary Rail Repair Unit (FBD for Axis NKPS for Soviet). The Super Depot was brought into the game because the 44 and 45 Soviets have a huge army and needs all the logistical help they can get. The argument is that it is ahistorical for the Axis in 41.
