For instance, in the example above, why does a single, unsupported artillery unit with 8/4 (assuming this is Attack Strength / Defence Strength) get an Assault AP value of 32, even higher than the attacking units, 17/11 + 6/8 + 7/9? I'm guessing a fortified status, but still seems massive.
On a related (frustrating) side-note, explaining the values that go into calculating the odds I feel are the most lacking part of the manual. It never really explains what these values stand for. It just heads straight into the formulas used, without even explaining what "Soft DF", "Hard DF" or "hardFraction" even stands for. I guess for old-timers they all know this and just think it's obvious, the rest of us have to guess?
Now at least I know what AP stands for, Anti Personnel (at least I hope so...), and not Armour Piercing - which would be the first guess. Not a single place is DF explained in the manual. Section 7.13.2 is the only place I've found where a new player can maybe guess on the meaning of these values, and that's just for the unit display options... no wonder these kinds of questions arise...
