ATTACHMENTS

If you want to support
this site, please ...

This is a completely optional feature allowing to assign any unit up to two attachments. All attachments settings are defined by .CFG files (see ConfigFiles  for details on how to configure)
Attachment cost can be optionally include in ArmyCost, by defining the proper Var en .CFG file

Each attachments implies a fixed hard-code behavior ruled by two customizables parameters, one of them being a penalty . When parameter is a number it is customizable. Second parameter is always a number so designer can set as zero to disable any penalty. Negative numbers are converted, so no parameter can be reversed from bonus to penalty or reverse.

Cost of parameters is made by a fixed number plus a percentage of the unit cost receiving the attachment.

There are the hard-coded behaviors of attachments:

AttachmentBonusPenalty
Recon Increase Spot according first param Reduce Movement according second param
Air Defense Increase AA/AD according first param Reduce Inititiative according second param
Bridging Gives Bridge special to unit Reduce Movement according second param

Special Munition Increase dice used to fire according first param Reduce Movement according second param
FastEntrench Increase entrench to TerrainBaseEntrench when entering an hex, according first param Reduce Inititiative according second param
