Is it intended that the defense of Heavy Structure is +2 only (the same as for Woods) and that the defense of Rubble is +3?

Thanks for Your answer.

Can You explain Your design decision for having the same protection value for heavy structures (like a stone building or a factory) and woods.

If You have Your reasons for give heavy structures only a +2 Defense value why does rubble have a different value? Do You think that You can get more cover from rubble than from a stone building?

Don't get me wrong. I don't say these decisions are a bad thing, but I think it's uncommon and I want to understand. So, it would be nice to hear Your points.

My reasons in making rubble better than a heavy structure is like you said, cover.

Much harder to target units in rubble. Many examples about the rubble in places such as Monte Casino and Stalingrad.

Woods and Heavy structures are comparable for defensive benefits.

So woods being comparable to Heavy structures accounts for the ability to hide better in woods as well as defensive protection?
