Hello all. I'm just getting back into wargaming after a while away and am a little stuck on some counter information I cannot find in the manual. When the other side have had their turn, the counter will show for example 1=1 or 2=2 or 1=4 and hovering over the counter will give again as an example (2/6) det 9, SP46. I presume the SP46 means it is 46 hexes away from it's main supply but I'm not sure what the rest means. Could someone explain for me please as I can't find it in the manual.

Regards

SPG

I had the same issue. Check out "Unit Counter Info" under Section 3.3.5. The first number is the estimated CV; the second is the estimated CV with fortification factors. So 1=4 means it's a 1 CV unit with a +3 defense modifier. Approximately. There is also information on this for stacked units under Section 13.2.1. Hope that helps.

det 9 means the unit has a detection level of 9. Very solid info on it at that level.

Note that you can change the info displayed on the counters in the preferences screen. For example I play with the numbers meaning Combat Value and movement points left.

But I think that only applies to your own units, not the enemy's.
