I was wondering if people were using the infantry-armour cooperation? As for myself, I never use it, because I just forget this task exists. Reading the game manual recently, I came across its section. From what I understand, it is used by an HQ when entering or crossing a covered terrain by sending the infantry company first, then the armour one. Am I right by saying the reason is that infantry performs better in cover terrain, so it opens the road for the tanks, which in return provide back up?
So how should this task be integrated when developing a plan:
1) Always trade one infantry company with an armour company between battalions, no matter what.
2) Only trade units when entering/crossing covered terrain.
3) Don't bother with it.
Two others questions:
- Does cooperation work with Motorized/Mechanized infantry?
- In the same vein, I know that Motor/Mech Inf units don't have an unmounted status, but when assaulting or routing are they considered on foot or on wheel?
