The supply you can't bomb directly is used to repair other infrastructure.
Ergo, to get rid of enemy supply, bomb more infrastructure.
I do not agree...
The reason it would add an interesting element to the game is that it would allow for one to alter the enemy's plans by bombing supplies that would be needed for an attack on the next turn. e.g. if the WA has supplies built up in Malta for use by the Mediteranean fleets, the German player could bomb those supplies to severly limit the fleet's movement capabilities. This would add an interesting stategic element to battles during barbarossa, not to mention the whole new level of strategic depth it would add to the war in the pacific.
In addition, this might even be a better way to simulate the role of air power in WWII. I am no expert, but I gather from my readings on this and other forums that the greatest effect of air power (at least land based air power) was not the ability to destroy units in the field, but to impead the enemies ability to supply its own troops. Therefore, if the ability to bomb supplies was implemented, the land attack values of tac and strat bombers could be lowered as to better represent their capabilities at the time.
Anyway, it likely can't/won't get implemented in this version of WAW. I hope you are reading this Joel/Matrix/2by3, it might be something to consider putting into the next version (if there is one).
