stalingrad docks destroyed units (press 'c') query

In the scenario stalingrad docks you have to destroy transports coming across the river, some of them are labelled guards, conscripts etc and turn into the relevant unit when unloaded. Q: When you press c to find out the destroyed number of units after scenarios does that number of infantry (first column, first entry,) include those you have destroyed as transports or are those destroyed as tranports ONLY counted in the transport entry in the second column. Thanks for info

reason for query; I was surprised at the large amount of units destroyed in that paticular scenario

If you destroy an infantry unit in a transport it counts as a kill for a transport and an infantry

interesting I never monitored that

so if it counts as a kill of a transport and a unit

does it mean for the overal kill count (assuming you kill a 10 strength Unit) ?

11 kills = 10 units + 1 transport
or
20 kills = 10 units + 10 transports

OK So I just did stalingrad docks (in AAR section) and I destroyed 168 units in total (first column only total) there was also 28 transports destroyed (entry in 2nd column) so 28 were destroyed in transit and 140 on the actual ground/town?.

I believe the kills listed in the Battle History tab of each unit lists only cases where the unit in question fired the final shot that destroyed an enemy unit. I.e. reducing a unit from 10 -> 5 doesn't increment it. The Total kills thing in the general tab lists all damage dealt, so reducing a unit from 10 -> 5 counts as five.

Worth noting is that the iPad and Mac do not have access to the total casualties for the scenario. There is no "press c".

The overall kill count is only 10, there is no bonus for the transport(s) as far as a unit's personal kill total even though the transport would also count as a unit destroyed in the 'c' table or unit battle history table. The only time you get 'kills' for a transport is if it is just a cargo truck, train, etc. with no fighting unit attached to it.

Good to know Thanks

That Knowledge eluded me as I almost Never Check the Kill Count of a Unit.
It's more like every 5 to 10 Scenarios to get an impression if someone is due for a Hero.
