Rules say
8.3 Build-up
Supply Points (SP) build-up weakened units. HQs may expend supply in the Fire Phase and receive supply in the Supply Phase of the same turn.

Must HQ supply during the Fire Phase? It seems wrong to me.

Thanks

SUPPLY

DHQ’s can activate during the COMMAND PHASE to allow eligible units to fire during the FIRING PHASE and to melee during the MELEE PHASE (supported melee). After the MELEE PHASE ends, each active DHQ’s strength is reduced one (1) step and then the DHQ is deactivated.
HQ’s (DHQ/CHQ/AHQ) may now be activated to give supply during the SUPPLY PHASE.

Upon deactivation after the MELEE PHASE the DHQ’s have spent one (1) step of their strength, i.e. they suffered a supply attrition of one (1) step. Strength is reduced by rotating the block 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

The first mentioned word “supply” in “HQs may expend supply in the Fire Phase and receive supply in the Supply Phase of the same turn.” (rule 8.3) refers to the abovementioned strength reduction, whereas the second mentioned word “supply” refers to the building-up of weakened units during the SUPPLY PHASE.

If eligible, DHQ’s can activate during the COMMAND PHASE for fire & melee purposes and can activate again during the SUPPLY PHASE to give supply to units of the same division; this means a two (2) step strength reduction for those DHQ’s during that player turn whilst they themselves cannot receive supply.

To answer the question: HQ’s cannot supply during the FIRING PHASE; they can give or receive supply during the SUPPLY PHASE only.
