v.1.01.02

Corps and mountain corps have exactly the same combat values.
Where should we see the difference here now?

In the manual it specifically writes they get bonuses attacking or defending in mountains. I guess it isn't a stat difference but maybe they get a readiness bonus when on mountains. Or even, if you check the defense values of a mountain you might find a "defender is mountain unit +x (?).

Who is looking for ...

So there is something in the manual.
Well hidden and superficial.
There should be in-game information.

What remains in the end: RTFM

Looking at the editor, mountain troops get a +1 bonus in mountain terrain compared to the normal Corps. It works as designed but is not visible because when you check the properties of a unit, those will not change according to the hex you are in. Those are a baseline. Within the game engine though, that bonus exists.

Thank you.

Mountain troops are actually expected to have advantages in their movement.
That this is not the case must be owed to balancing.

I looked for a movement bonus but did not find one. That could be a result of simply not finding it. It can be less than easy to find things in the editor and I am far from an expert.

I would think it would be hard to have a movement bonus in terms of hexes moved. Just adding one hex as a bonus would represent a large percentage increase over a Corps' movement in mountains. The bonus could also be of morale or readiness being reduced less for movement in mountain terrain. That would make more sense, especially readiness, to me but I am not familiar enough with those aspects of the editor to know. If I get a chance, spare time has been rare for me these past few weeks, I'll see if I can find something.

Hi

Just to clarify, Mountain units receive +1 to some combat values, as offenseman has said, but no movement bonus.
