Hi there,

I just started getting acquianted with "real" ww2 wargaming.
Im an absolute NOOB, so please excuse my everything blush

I have downloaded some free rulesets, read them through, and i think, i will start with the "strom of steel" or "micro armour" rules.

Theres one thing in the basics, what makes me confused cry
I cant find a rule, which takes into account unit strenght, based on the number of vehicles/guns/anything represented on a stand.
For example, in my opinion, a stand representing a unit with 4 T34s should have more firepower than a stand with a unit of 3 PzIIIs (or PZ IVs).
The rule tables contain combat values for individual vehicles. Do these values cumulate? Or do represented vehicles fire and take damage separately? Dont think so.
I find combat rules reasonable for infantry units, but for AFVs i find it too simplified.
I know im missing something.
Please, can anyone help me to understand this most basic principle? blush
Thanks

Hey welcome to BGG! I'm sure you will get your answer but just a tip, try finding the specific game you are asking about and then post on its forum. It can be kind of a bear to navigate at first but you'll get there. Good Luck!

Came here to post this. The Wargaming subdomain is by far the most active on BGG. You will find answers and great discussion there. For specifics on the games, simply type their names in the search box at the top, then scroll down to the Forum section and follow the link to the dedicated forums for those games--that's the best place for those game-specific questions.

Figuring out navigation on BGG is kind of your initiation...
