That is really interesting ... very nuanced. You really have to sequence your over runs and assaults properly, combine arms etc. Cool. I have my first face to face this weekend against my regular WaW opponent, let's see how it goes.
One more question: Why the little ""+1" on the NATO armor instead of just making their Combat Strength one point higher?
My take is that they die when they reach zero (without the modifier). That is, at their weakest state, they have an attack of 2. if they take another hit, they're dead rather than going to 1.
