About the supplies : 1.931.000 ton of supplies were sent to Libya,,314000 were lost during the passage, some 16 %.
But,it is not so that if less were lost this would benefit the Axis,the opposite was possible and it is not so that if more supplies were lost,this would hurt the Axis,the opposite was possible .
Typical self contradicting statement. :lol:

Is saying the man who ignores that the arrival of more supplies in Tripoli does not mean the arrival of more supplies at the front .
He never heard of the law of diminishing returns .

Bluffing as usual as you have no data to support this. I have a suspicion that in months were losses of supplies were much less, much more arrived at the front.
