What is the meaning, use and effect of the 'Formation Role' flag in the (HQ)Unit Display?

If you click on a HQ counter on the map, opening its Unit's display, up in the header, you can see, among others, a'Formation Role' flag, that can assume four different values : 0=none, 1= security, 2=defend, 3=attack

Couldn't find it in the manual...

thanks in advance

regards

You're just seeing this in the editor, correct? I think this is only used by the AI and is not something to be set by the player or scenario designer. I think it was something that could be used by scenario designers in WitW.

Yes, in the editor.

I checked, it was in WitE 1 too.

Anyway, now I know it's not used or usable,
one of the many mysteries of WitE's immense and layered database

thank you
