NVA have a 2-1 attack on a stack of ARVN in a Capital Town hex in Cultivated terrain. When working out this ratio, I added 2 Regional Forces points to the ground strength of the ARVN units due to its defence being based in that Capital Town. Die rolled is a 1, plus 2 for 2-1 ratio combat modifier, i now minus 2 for Regional forces die roll modifier as suggested by the terrain chart. Is this all above board please or am i, as i suspect, getting it wrong?
Correct result, but wrong reasoning..
The RF add 2 strength to the ground strength.
The Capital Town is a -2 drm for terrain, the RF are not terrain. The (RF) on the terrain chart is a reminder they may be present in that terrain, it is not a drm.
