Support Units

Thu Jul 05, 2018 12:54 pm

Hi all, I’ve been a lurker for about 2-3 years now and find the insights of many of you very instructive, but I have a question I can’t get answered by perusing the forum.

Support units. Right to the chase: if I have a corps and in that corps I have a headquarters unit, do I need a signal or medical unit? I’ve seen yes and no on the forums.

Welcome...old friend!

The HQ and a Signal Co will both add 2 Command Points if in one stack. The Medic Co. will not improve the HQ's ability to boost cohesion recovery.

Wait.. what?
HQ and Signal company do not stack their bonuses. You only get +2 command points no matter if you them both or multiple units of them in a stack.
Basically the HQ has a signal and medical service of level 1, the same you get from a signal respectively a medical company so there is no need to put them in a single stack.

Ok. So now I’m confused. This is why I asked. There’s some they say “Headquarters AND Signal Company” and those that say “ Headquarters MEANS NO Signal Company.”

See it for yourself, the HQ has 3 little symbols on it showing its Special Abilities, just hover the cursor over it and it should show you what each one means.
And you can also see that HQ & signal company give you as many CPs as an HQ OR a signal company give you, There is no CP gain when having more than one signal service in a stack.

Are there other benefits? I've seen none but if some hidden benefit applies to the HQ or signal companies abilities please post them here:
