1. Precisely what the white and red boxed numbers mean in the combat results display? Manual didn't seem to elucidate. I know it is retreated/eliminated, but what is significance of when numbers next to each other, etc.

2. Does the unit's "health" bar (green when high; red when low) reflect integrity?

3. If there is any reason you cannot put a unit in the Corps if the HQ is far away (e.g., Romanians on coast watch).

Thanks in advance.

1) A unit in Red is a dead unit during combat. If the unit is in white, it has been suppressed, and will no longer participate in hurting the enemy, but can still be taken as losses. If the whole unit is panicked, the attacker will get a bonus in shooting at it, so more of them will die.

2) Integrity is the health bar. It essentially just shows how much of the unit is left from full strength.

3) You can put any unit into any HQ wherever you want. However, if they are in combat, they will get the HQ bonus if they are with 5 hexes of it. If the unit is not going to fight (like your Romanians on Coast watch) then it doesn't matter where the HQ is (if/until the enemy lands near them)


What's the sense of sending $2 million missiles to hit a $10 tent that's empty?
