An automatic order strategy to purchase military hardware can become stuck in a competitive loop with the automation to deactivate military hardware when a country has financial problems.

low finance = automatic deactivation
deactivation = automatic purchasing

I made a request through the irc-chat-with-jozi sessions some time back that the game should be checking for active+deactivated+deployed for a variety of things. This would clean up this issue, or it could be done in another way.

Deactivated hardware is still in a country's inventory and won't be auto-purchased.

Indeed, they fixed it after I posted the original alert.

Still waiting for them to fix the activation/deactivation so it considers active+deactivated+deployed though. If you deploy all your (10000 say) tanks, then you can only reactivate 200 of your 2000 deactivated tanks after that instead of 1200 of your total 12000 tanks.
