Convoy Escort Advancement - 7/8/2021 8:47:04 PM

In the PBEM game I am playing the UK will have 1943 Convoy Escort Advancement next turn whereas the USA will still be at 1942. I am wondering which level will apply to a convoy route? For example will the convoys that end up in the UK have the 1943 advancement but a route that ends up in the USA still only be 1942?

each escort of a nation has their own independent tech.

For Allied players: Highly recommend to just let the UK/Canada builds escorts and tech, and ignore it with the US

Still unsure about this. Since the UK is now at 1943 convoy escort, do the North Atlantic, South Atlantic, and Middle East routes get the benefit?

My logistics for Canada is stuck at 8 but I can build escorts. Can these escorts be allocated to any convoy route? For example what if I wanted to allocate them to the Arctic Convoy Route?

I think it would be helpful when the cursor is moved on to a convoy route that it would indicate what convoy escort advancement it is at.

Well convoys do not have tech, only the escorts. So if you have a mix of escorts in a convoy lane (US and UK) they should each "fight" at their own tech. Convoy battles seem to have rounds like land battles.

UK escorts can only go if UK ressources are travelling in that convoy either as ressources owned or lend.
