I'm having a little difficulty understanding how the SN corps and supply rules interact.


Rule 11.1.16: The Turkish SN Corps converts spaces per 11.1.14, However, during Attrition Phase any spaces it converts (other than the one it occupys) that cannot trace a supply line suffer attrition.

Scenario:
>The British have the NE army in Damascus and 1 corps in Beirut.
>There are no other British units in that area.
>Turkey controls Aleppo.
>All spaces from going back south to Alexandria are AP controlled.
>The CP brings in the SN Corps and captures Alexandria and Port Said.

1)In this scenario the NE army and the corps are now out of supply?

2) The only way they can get back into supply is if:
A. the allies open a supply line from London>>Taranto/Athens/Salonika>>>through Constantinople down to the NE army+corps.

B. the MEF opens a supply line from the MEF Beachead >> Aleppo/Damsacus to the NE army + corp. However in this case, only the corps could be supplied, up to a maximum of 2 corps total being supplied through the MEF beachead?

3) During attrition if the NE army and corps are not put back in supply, then they will both be removed (NE Army permanently)?

4) During attrition phase all spaces from Libya through Beirut and Damascus will revert to AP control, with the exception of the space occupied by the SN Corps (and Medina if a Turkish corps were present)?

Correct.

Not quite correct. The two methods you list are allowed, but other ways are possible too, and there is no limit on the number of corps that can draw supply through the Beachhead.

Off the top of my head, the Allies could also save the NE Army if:

C. BR corps manage to march up from Basra and take Aleppo; or

D. RU units (possibly including the CAU army) march down and take Aleppo, provided that a supply line still exists from the Russian units through Persia to Basra.

Correct.

Correct.
