Two comments about supply wagons:

1 - I don't understand why they weren't programmed to follow the unit in front of them like the rest of the units. Certainly, if you only have two supply wagons in your caravan/column and you are holding down the alt key moving them, then you are fine. But if you have 3 or more supply wagons in a row in your caravan/column and you are holding down the alt key moving them, then you had better move them one at a time around sharp curves or they will fight to see who goes first, costing you serious movement points in the process.

2 - Supply wagons in these games have provided many life lessons for me. When I need patience with someone or something, I think of the supply wagons at Gettysburg. It may seem like they never go anywhere, but eventually they always arrive.

Supply wagon speed can be adjusted to equal that of artillery in the pdt file.

Supply wagons should not be able to man captured cannons
