    Some thoughts on 4x turn based strategy games

    armaments logistics?

    Take the good old Cluster Bomb now listed as an "evil baby killer" as an example.

    So the bomblets are made outside of Los Angeles, the controlling electronics are made in San Diego, and the bomb shell is made in Michigan. All those items were then shipped via Rail to the Red River Armory Depot just west of Texarkana. A site filled with Quonset huts built during WWII and a revetments with 100 ft high bunker walls where the assemblies are done one bomb at a time by munition experts.
    [Because accidents do happen and those little bomblets never were quite perfected with their timed self-destruct charges.]

    Then the cluster bombs are packaged up in shipping shells and once again moved via rails to a USAF base.

    as for your missile rovers , you mornally make the vehicle one place )say like Oshkosh, WI) and the missiles at another place (southern CA) , and then once again assembled at a third (Katy Tx) where the Army Officer in charge of QA for the program signs off on the unit.

    This is a great idea. What it seems to me you are introducing is logistics, which hasn't been done enough at all.
