Hey everyone...just trying to learn this game and got a question. I know on your units counters can have CV and Move Values but what is the 1=2, 1=3, etc... on enemy counters telling me?

Thanks

Thanks!

Manual is huge and findings things can be a bit of a chore, didn't see this mentioned but I must have missed it.

Doesn't your PDF reader have search capability?

Sure it does. But what would I have searched for? I had no idea what they meant...

And I didn't find a picture that seemed to relate to what was looking for...

If it's 1-1, then the first number is the offensive CV while the second number is the amount of remaining Movement Points. The game defaults to this for the currently playing player.

If it's 1=1, then the first number is the offensive CV while the second number is the defensive CV. The game always shows the non-playing player's counters in this mode, since if you're not playing then you're not moving, so you never need to see the MPs

Good point. I figured it out by switching my own display between Move and Combat and once I saw that the 1=1 stuff was the combat display, it was a short bit of logic to understand what it was displaying for the Soviets.

Use the 'z' hotkey to toggle this display for friendly combat troops. As people stated all enemy combat troops will show the ?=? format as default.
