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
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...
Just getting into this one. Have HL:CAO and loved that one!
I am slightly concerned that there are no friendly forces in this one.
Love it thought!
in reply to the OP:
All enemy forces are Command, Support or Assault.
All friendly forces are Armoured or Mechanised.
