During a land attack, each attacking unit can only participate as many combat rounds as there are action points left, divided by 10, right?
But it seems like it's not really a cost, since unless you run out of action points, the attack does not cost more than a simply move into that hex would have cost.
I didn't really realize the implications of this until a few matches ago. For example you can't delay an attacking enemy unless you win a combat, a 7 turn combat won't cost the attacker any more APs than a weakly or undefended hex (if he has 80+ APs).

I do wonder if this this is by intention.
If yes why and if everyone was aware of it.

Yes but the attacker might lose lots of readiness during the combat too, so it at least indirectly delays him somewhat then. And then there is i think the ZoC-Mechanism, don't know exactly how it works though.
