Question about veterancy.

Postby kedsiked » Tue 14 Oct 2014 08:10

The more trained, the more damage they will give with a given weapon.

Can anyone clarify how exactly it is declared in the game, what is the multiplier? Wargame: Red Dragon Mechanics Manual says only about accuracy in terms of veterancy, but that's already stated clear in game. What about the damage?
Let's take for example MAPAD Igla, it does 4 HE power. Will Elite LStR-40 do more damage than a Regular Igla squad?
Or it is only reflects in terms of an automatic weapons, meaning they will be more accurate hence they will do more damage in a given time interval?

The HE and AP of units doesn't increase with more veterancy. But of course the accuracy and chance of critical hits. Also the morale is different than ;)

They took off the damage because of some very unbritish people abusing a flaw in the mechanic with the SAS

To be fair it included other things, involving rockets in napalm form. :?

suprise mofo Infantry one-shotting superheavy tanks wasn't really funny either

But SAS one-shotting planes was around the top, right next to them were spetz one-shotting inf squads

As people have said, they used to but don't anymore. It was something like +10% damage per level back when it existed, which was useful for things like 5-damage MANPADs one-shotting 6 HP helicopters, having more elite infantry own normal infantry even harder than they already do, etc.

They'll still effectively deal somewhat more damage due to all of the other buffs they get, but the damage value itself isn't directly increased anymore.
