I cannot seem to find specifics regarding whether CP costs for attaching or detaching units are cumulative in the case where this is being done for multiple units relative to the same HQ. For example, a division HQ detaches three units: a recon, an infantry and engineers. Is the CP cost cumulative and applicable to all of them, or are the considered simultaneous? In the latter, there are additional time and space considerations and approaches possible. Each scenario I have thought of is below.
In the former, each unit is essentially required to "wait" until all such operations are completed. This is how I read the rules as is, but this is probably not all that reflective of actual operations. It would here show three detach operations, so 3 CP charged to all.
All three operations covered by a single 1 CP applied to all.
The units could be conceptually "lined up", such that the first to detach would incur 1 CP, the second 2 CP, and the third 3 CP. The HQ would incur 3 CP.
My main thought is that we should leave all other rule queries now (save those pending in the next rules release) to be resolved as and when they arrive during play. This is rather against my preferred principle because things are naturally more contentious at that point but it’s clearly impossible to iron out every glitch in this game before starting (assuming starting is within our lifetime).
On the specific query, is this something over and above the specific provisions that I made (or a problem with the provisions themselves) for time and distance appertaining to attachments et cetera on the assistance sheet?

Basically I was just looking for a ruling as to whether the detach operation in this scenario for three units is actually considered a single happening with triple cost, single happening/single cost, or three sequential happenings with costs/time applied sequentially to the remaining units. Does that make more sense?
Mike I look at this a little differently. If you asking about the three units being detached at one time - then the 1 CPA cost appplies. But if one is detached, then the parent unit moves, then another is detached, etc. Then the cost would seem to be 1 per detachment action.
