A few more questions from this thread after fighting in Crimea for the first time.

You don't actually trace an LOC from a port (Leningrad excepted)-the port itself is the supply source.Ted


7.3 (reinforcements) states:
Soviet units may be placed in any Cities in the USSR with a LOC to the east map edge or on the Military Road map edge hexes in the Caucasus. [...] Likewise, Soviet Cities on the Black Sea coast may only be reinforced by one unit each if they have to trace a LOC across the Black Sea

In this case, is LOC traced port to port as though they were any other adjacent hex to determine if they have LOC to the edges? For example:

Sevastopol is blockaded on land and can't trace a land route to the edge. Novorossiysk is Russian controlled so Sevastopol still a supply source. For reinforcement purposes, does Sevastopol trace to Novorossiysk and from there to the edges? If Novorossiysk can't trace LOC to the edges and no other ports are controlled, Sevastopol is now unable to reinforce even if it's still providing a LOC and LOS to its units?



13.4 (Soviet supply) states:
As long as the Soviets Control any other port on the Black Sea, any port on the Black Sea/Sea of Azov is a Supply Source for Soviet units within five hexes

Is the first part only intended to be Black Sea or should it contain the Sea of Azov too? For example, if Russia controls Sevastopol and Rostov only, are they supply sources on non-snow turns?



Can LOC/LOS be traced across the Kerch Straits?

I am sure that Vladimir Putin will be VERY interested in knowing that answer...

You can trace LOS/LOC across the kerch straits, yes, in non-winter turns you could use Rostov/Sevastopol as mutual supply cities-if you control both sides of the Straits, and yes, on placing reinforcements at Sevastopol-you must trace a LOC to another port and then to an ultimate supply source. Though in practice that last is usually a moot point, since the Axix will normally keep Sevastopol in range of an air unit, so no one will be arriving there.
