Hi,

I have both old and new game (lucky me)
And i am planning to re introduce friendly forces and ground battle in the new one.

But i have a big problem ( which existed since the beginning)

The ground battle uses modifiers
Armoured/assault have +4
Mechanized +2
Support/command +1


But in the old cards, only a very few ennemy had the "armoured" or "mechanized" word written on them.

For example, the tank spearhead battalion did not have it !
Neither the tank force battalion

Composed of many tanks, i would assume they would be granted the +4 modifier, but it was never clear to me..

So my question is :

How do i know (in the old game) what modifier to apply ?
Is it strictly if the words assault-armored-mechanized are written ?
Or is based on another criteria ?

To import this in the new game, if i have no answers to this question, i am planning on basing this on the number of tanks/apcs/infantry units in the ennemy battalion,
and use a standard fixed number for the friendly forces..

To balance the game, i will also use the "AIR ARRIVAL" old game rule to have ennemy aircrafts showing up during missions....
(at least, this is not hard to import)

I really hope someone has an answer, because it really was one of the black spots i never cleared in the old game..

The reason i want these ground troops and ground combat is that i want this real feeling of CLOSE AIR SUPPORT back...

in reply to the OP:

All enemy forces are Command, Support or Assault.

All friendly forces are Armoured or Mechanised.
