The sheer weight of numbers should create victory on
the battle field by itself, all other elements being equal.
In practice it's precisely those other elements which are
worthy of study, though numbers should never be discared.
It remains a fact that when you seek a victorious offensive,
your forces should outnumber the enemy three to one.
As numbers aren't everything, it's wise to examine the
quality of the equipment. Each military equipment knows
hitpoints: the attack factor of the main weapon. If the
hitpoints of one equipment is twice that of another
equipment, the first equipment is twice as powerful as
About damage points we can say the same thing, although
this counts for the defense factor of equipment. Damage
points represent the armour of tanks and ships. If
the damage points of an equipment is high, its ability
to resist enemy fire is increased.
Then what, you may ask, is strength? Strength is
nothing more (or less) than the cumulative total of the
number of equipment times the hit and damage points.
Offensive Strength = Numbers x Hit Points
Defensive Strength = Numbers x Damage Points
