Does the defender's readiness affect the defender's losses? (And does the attacker's readiness affect the attacker's losses?)

I thought the answer was No but it seems it might be Yes.

I have a Strategic Bomber unit. Its readiness is 68% and its attack value against all land units is 1. So it should do 0.68 damage. This should not be affected by the defender's readiness (though the damage I'd expect to receive would be, though they all have defence ratings of 0 in any case).

I target a Corps at Readiness 76% and the attack is marked as 0-1. I target a Tank at Readiness 99% and it is marked as 0-0. Same with an Army at 107%. All units have level 0 AA tech, none are in escort range, all are upgraded with level 1 Inf Weapons or Advanced Tanks (which do not affect Strat Bomber Attack or Defence.)

Please let me know!

7.29.4 on p. 86 shows the calculation for combat - readiness is definitely an important factor.

So to answer my own question, yes it does - 7.29.7, in fact:

Attacker Losses = Defender’s Combat Multiplier * (Defense Type Value + Defender Experience / 3) - Attacker Multiplier * Attacker Experience / 3 

Defender Losses = Attacker Multiplier * (Attack Type Value + Attacker Experience / 3) - (Defender Multiplier * (Defender Experience / 3 + Defender Entrenchment + Defense Bonuses)


So the attacker's losses aren't affected by its Attack or Defence values, but ARE affected by its own Readiness and Experience levels.

Things I never knew....
