    Both methods have their uses and will both probably be good in different situations.

    Personally I mainly transfer troops around to provide a fighting force at the new location.
    I would usually also have to provide the gear from that some initial point.
    For me transferring WITH their gear would be more useful than otherwise.

    In other situations it might be good to have them leave their high tech stuff behind.
    Personally though I would just decide who I was sending and give them whatever I wanted them to take, if I wanted them to take no high tech gear I would take it off them.

    I agree. It is a good idea though.

    I really don't know which way is better, although I would lean towards keeping their gear at the base.

    I have this feeling at the back of my mind that gear and personnel should be kept separate. The personnel screen should only transfer personnel and the same for stores. I don't want my store levels changing without my notice when I send troops, only when I manufacture something or explicitly transfer gear.

    But that's just me.

    Your stores level will not change.
    If gear is issued to someone then it is not in stores.

    Well in that case having the gear stay with the soldier would be better.

    The stores levels was the only real issue I had.

    Is the sensible thing here not to either: prompt, when you make the transfer, or make it an option in preferences?

    Would that be a single prompt for all soldiers transferred or an individual one for each?
    What would the options be for the prompt?
    Which method would you have as the default?
