Convoys are an abstraction of cargo and passenger ships, as well as landing craft. In contrast to combat ships they can be stockpiled and not controllable on the map. They are used for various tasks like maritime resource transport and trade, supply, lend-lease, troop transport, and naval invasions. In naval combat convoys are represented as individual units, just like other ships, and can be destroyed. A lack of convoys can seriously hurt a maritime nation.
