I can't make any of the numbers add up ...

When looking at a list of units, the Unit Info column includes "Strength"
When looking at an individual unit, at the top there are "Capabilities" with "Attack" and "Defend"
And when looking at an individual unit there are "Strengths" for each type of combat

I can't find any relationship between Strength, Attack, and the individual strengths. And I've tried to include in my calculations (2xproficiency + readiness + supply)/4. And I've tried lots of combinations, etc. And I can't make any sense of the numbers.

So ...

What is "Strength"?
What is "Attack"?

Equipment strength refers to the value that a single piece of equipment has. That is, its AP value, or its Anti Armour value, or its AA value, or its defence value. These can be seen when viewing the equipment in the editor, or unit panels, or inventory screens, by clicking on the specific equipment icon.

The strength calculation of (2 x proficiency+readiness+supply)/4 is the value that the sum of the various pieces of equipment in the attack/defence is multiplied by, in order to determine the total nominal effective strength of the unit.

This is not Avalon Hill's Blitzkrieg.

Which, BTW, was my very first store bought board game. Yeah I'm old.
