    • Healing units depends on time spent in province

      It's unrealistic that if troop A, was 23 hours in province and moved just for one hour before "healing time" of comming day it would heal at 0%

      While troop fighting and moving for 23 hours of day and realising in province for 1 hours, would heal at possibility masx of 15%.

      Better would be if there are hours counted of time spent in province (just hours, not minutes, would be fair enough I guess) and unit would heal depending on how much time it spend there, not just on the fact if it's in province or not.

      Better? How so? Beyond being on friendly territory, unit condition "healing" has nothing to do with the time spent in a particular province.

      At the outset, let's recognize that daily unit "healing" is a misnomer. Partially restored unit condition is not about "healing" in any normal sense of the word; it's about replacements. Replacement equipment for that destroyed in battle or damaged beyond repair. And replacement soldiers for those killed or wounded in battle. Seriously wounded soldiers do not recover with their unit; wounded soldiers are sent to hospital. KIAs are sent to the burial recover; they don't recover. American casualties in WW2 were roughly a 4:1 ratio of wounded to killed. That number goes down to about 2.5:1 when surviving wounded to KIAs plus wounded who later died are considered. And the Americans and British had better access to near-battlefield medical care via battlefield medics, battalion aid stations, and temporary army hospitals (what later became known as "MASH" units); most countries had higher post-battle death rates for their wounded. With further improvements in transport, trauma care, and body armor, Americans in Afghanistan have a ratio of more like 10:1 for surviving wounded to combined KIAs and later deaths from wounds.

      Bottom line: most seriously wounded soldiers do not quickly return to their original combat unit, and KIAs never return. Restored unit "condition" is about replacement equipment, and replacement personnel, and it really doesn't matter which friendly province in which they are present or how long they are there ---- it's about access to receive replacements.

      Anyway you attempt to rationalize this proposal, it is either more unrealistic than the present abstraction, or it is an unnecessary complication that adds nothing to the game.
