The Specialist Reinforcements requisition essentially lets you buy pregame buffs for your units with Crusade's requisition point meta-currency (you otherwise cannot spend CP
for pregame upgrades). When you use Specialist Reinforcements on a newly added vehicle squadron, do you pay 1 RP
for the group, or 1 RP

The wrinkle is in the split units rule.
Split unit rules wrote:The most common split units are VEHICLE squadrons, units of MONSTERS, or T’AU EMPIRE units that have accompanying drones, but there are others. If you have any such units in your Order of Battle you must fill out a separate Crusade card for each model (or group of models) that is treated as a separate unit during the battle - these individual components gain experience points, Battle Honours, take Out of Action tests and acquire Battle Scars separately.
It's really weird. My initial reading was RAW
you'd pay 1 RP
per model. However, the split unit rule comes much further into the book, and it doesn't explicitly say "add a Crusade card for each model". It almost seems like semantics, but the balance impact of buying Specialist Reinforcements per model seems unintended: it kills your RP
supply and inflates your Crusade Points, where a normal game it would only cost 1 CP
Am I missing any information, or wrong about something? What's the judgement?
