3.34 seems to indicate that Australia can act as a home area supply source for USA units, i.e. ground and air units, but not fleets. Is that correct or can Australia supply both USA units and fleets?

3.34 Hawaii and friendly-controlled home areas of Australia also act
as home areas to USA units for supply purposes only.

In the KT & C it is stated that
"the blocks included in the game represent ground units and fleets. When a rule refers to ‘blocks’, it refers to both types; when it refers to ‘units’, it refers to both air units (die-cut counters with overhead airplane views) and ground units. When it refers to fleets, it is
applied to the naval blocks. If a rule applies to a smaller subset, it
will name the type(s) affected.

Wow, interesting catch...But see also 9.25 (also referenced in 3.4) which allows the USA to trace supply around Australia, provided they can trace a supply route to the Tasman Sea (it was clarified somewhere in these threads by Rick a while back that the USA must be able to trace a supply path to the Tasman Sea, and not just any seazone east of Australia, to utilize this route). So, it would very rarely come up that USA fleets are out of supply in Australia, but if the Japanese Empire extends far enough east, it seems it could happen.

The use of the word "units" is exactly as you cite from the KT&C. US fleets must trace supply to the Home Area, aka, USA.

Excuse my ignorant question: What is the KT&C?
