Anti Fortification

Post by Lobster »

One of the values that can be displayed on unit counters is anti fortification. Yet every unit is a zero. Which is surprising since combat engineers should have at least some anti fortification capabilities. Is it correct to assume this is a value that does not exist? Will it be useful some time in the future?

I'm intrigued by this little oddity too.

The Equipment Editor doesn't have an 'anti-fortification' check-box so I can't see how engineers (or other stuff like siege artillery or even the Churchill AVRE) could be endowed with such a capability.

There do not appear to be any XML fields or flags that cover "anti-fortification", so it is kind of a mystery how this value could be set or used. Unless it is shell weight, which a previous thread discussed...

Short of asking Ralph (good luck!), you can try to puzzle this out:

Appears to be based upon Shell Weights.

Interesting. It's coded but evidently nothing ever branches to it? Would be nice to use M36 Jacksons to pop fortifications like it did in WW2. [:D]
