Hi,

I mean to remember that there is an extra penalty when motorized units use (almost) all MP?

Cant find it in the manual.

Greetings

Yes, something like extra damage & fatigue.

Detailed data or sources available?

9.5.3. Vehicle Movement Attrition
A certain percentage of a unit’s organic vehicles will be destroyed and damaged during its side’s logistics phase based on the number of movement points the unit expended during the previous turn. If a unit expended 100 percent of its allowed (not base) movement points, 2 percent of the unit’s vehicles will be destroyed, and 18 percent will be damaged. Reduced expenditure will result in proportionally reduced destruction and damage. For example, if a unit only expended thirty percent of its MPs, .6 percent of its vehicles would be destroyed and 5.4 percent would be damaged. Movement attrition for a support unit’s organic vehicles will be based on the movement point expenditure of the unit to which it is attached.

Thanks Balou for manual reference. Important point is that degradation be arithmetically proportional to usage. If so, makes sense to me.

However, I still have to figure out whether damage is linked to MPs alone (which partially depends on terrain) or to MPs + terrain (extra penalty?) that my mob Divs had to travel thru.
