From: Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
I have just deigned my first light tank with following specifications: 25 mm high velocity gun, 25 mm steel plating armor, medium diesel engine (300 power, 8.2 fuel). Total weight 285.
My intention was to have more powerful engine (300) compared to total weight (285) in order to avoid negative move modifier. However, after model was researched and ready for production I realized that I have underpowered engine with -30% move modifier.
1. How to judge during design process what will be move modifier? What engine/weight ratio need to be in order to have 0% move modifier?
2. At unit screen we can see various statistics. But some of these data are different from data presented on "Model and quality level management window" or during process where we give equipment specifications to Model Design Council.
For example, at unit screen we can see that fuel consumption is 3.2, in "Model and quality" window there is stat "Move oil = 32", but during specification of engine we can see that medium diesel engine consumes 8.2 fuel. Similarly there are discrepancies for weight. Unit screen shows weight of 25 but "Model and quality" window, as well as specifications screen, says that weight is 285. How these numbers are related?
This is very important if I want to plan oil consumption. Let say that I have reserve of 1.000 oil points at SHQ. How much of this reserve will consume my 50 light tanks unit per hex moved? 50 x 3.2? 50 x 32? 50 x 8.2?
Also, how much logistic capacity points will use Strategic move of this unit? 285 or 50?
