airheads

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945 is a turn-based World War II strategy game stretching across the entire Eastern Front. Gamers can engage in an epic campaign, including division-sized battles with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.

The critically and fan-acclaimed Eastern Front mega-game Gary Grigsby’s War in the East just got bigger and better with Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: Don to the Danube! This expansion to the award-winning War in the East comes with a wide array of later war scenarios ranging from short but intense 6 turn bouts like the Battle for Kharkov (1942) to immense 37-turn engagements taking place across multiple nations like Drama on the Danube (Summer 1944 – Spring 1945).

I've seen mentioned the use of airheads but when I went looking through the manual I couldn't find anything. How do airheads work and when can you start using them?

The capability is available in 1942 and after.
Instead of using air supply on your units try on an air base.
It will deliver a lot of fuel or supply to your neighbour divisions (about 10 hexes I think).
It is useful for your spearhead and your isolated units.

I would need to see the post, but it may be the poster was using it in a logistical context. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airbridge ... bridgehead.

Ah, the link if you start up from steam still goes to an earlier version. Will your more hard work on this, ie the up to date manual, be added to the steam link when its out of beta?.
