Moving an entire Stryker Brigade, including a three day supply package, would require over 700 C-130 sorties at max load (which is unrealistic).

For sealift you'd need 2-3 ships comparable to the Bob Hope class. Taking into account loading, transit and unloading trip time would be about a week. Though this assumes there are ports capable of handling this class of ship.

Another stupid question.

I have around 20 Ticonderoga Cruisers in my whole fleet, are they useful or should I sell them to build more Destroyers?

I'm no expert... But the US navy is. I would assume you should place a cruiser to escort a carrier.

At least it wasn't a TAG!

Are rocket assisted mortar shells for mortars in the 82-120mm range feasible and would they actually be useful?

Would it be possible to mount a recoilless rifle on a plane, to make it like the Hs. 129 or B-25 which both had 75mm guns? Make it recoilless and direct the gasses down?

Well yes, but remember that the need to mount AT guns on planes sort of died as bomb-aiming techniques, rocket loads and eventually guided missiles came in.

It would be more effective to mount such a gun Spooky-style?

Trains. This gonna be gud. Anyways, I am a temperate, heavily forested island nation if you didn't know. I have a heavy reliance on railways, and use trains to transfer ammunition, and in the threat of a invasion, troops. I have about 4,000,000km squared in land size, so trains, how effective?

Define "effective". The gun would be manned and have a greater stowage, though engagement options would be limited. You wouldn't be able to pop over low cover and send a few rounds into something (if you had the time) or spurt rockets, instead you have to fly high and slow.

Without an enemy with effective air support/defense, the AC-130 has a very long staying time and can provide close air support for hours - an A-10 or F-35 could only engage ten or twelve targets, or as many as it has missiles/rockets, but the AC-130 has hundreds of rounds. Would a forward-facing gun on a large attack plane have the same advantages?

What is the lowest level one could allocate TBMs & GLCMs with range of 600+ km to army formations?

Divisional level (within independent fire brigades) is probably too much no, but there's no artillery divisions in my armies for corps level and above... unless the indie fire brigade with such weapons gets sent upward to those levels...

127 mm is the smallest diameter nuke ever successfully tested.

Smaller might be achievable theoretically, but if you want to go with something tried and tested then that's the caliber to go with.

Not much effective, as sappers could sabotage the railways and possibly grind your supply lines to a halt.
