Supply Query?

Mon Oct 27, 2008 10:00 am

Goodaye,

This game looks interesting. I'm curious how the game handles supply.

Does it represent supply lines that can be interrupted?

Is supply something that you need to accumulate prior to an offensive?

How is supply generated?

Any info here would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Plugger

In a nutshell, your supply moves along railroads, and your unit needs to be at max 2 areas away from such a supplied railroad, or from a supplied HQ.
Supply sources are your friendly cities, or ports (unless the port's sea is enemy controlled).

As for stockpiling prior to an offensive, that is represented for trench warfare, where to launch a major offensive (and thus use a somewhat better CRT for your attack), you need to pre-schedule it, by its start turn and target area.

For the big offensives Tamas mentioned, it also helps to have good stockpiles of MUN (to fire your artillery) and RP (to help replace the casualties).

Goodaye,

Arrr... So how do you generate MUN's (munitions?) And how are they expended?

I take it you are referring to an overall stockpile of MUN's that anyone can tap into provided they are on the supply grid?

Ammunition is for artillery units. Normal units are either supplied or not, ammunition spending of them is not tracked.

Each round of combat where you use an artillery unit as support costs one MUN.

You get MUN by producing it, setting a turnly flow of it during the quarterly Interphases. Obviously, more munition costs more, plus, the max you can get is limited by your level of war industry. (by political decisions, you can gradually switch your economy for war production. But beware: the more you concentrate on war, the less consumer products you will have, lowering your national will)
