Number of soldiers in a squad...


Recommended Posts

If this was already answered somewhere before I apologize.

I was wondering, as I will have some number of squads on the battlefield and they will take casualties as the battle goes , is there any easy way to tell how many men a squad lost, without say clicking on the squad ? I mean some sort of visual symbol could maybe roughly tell ? Is there currently anything similar to this ?

Thanks...

The number of men depicted for the squad decreases as the unit takes casualties. A full squad is shown as either 2 or 3 men (user selectable to speed up the game if needed). If you are playing with the 3 soldier option, your 12 man US rifle squad would show 3 soldiers until the unit took 4 casualties, then it would show only 2 soldiers. After the unit took 4 more casualties, it would drop to one soldier, and then, obviously, disappear after the last 4 soldiers were hit. If you were using the two man option, one soldier would disappear after 6 casualties.

So, while it's not an exact number, you can at least tell if a unit is between 0-33%, 34%-66%, or 67%-100% strength just by looking at it (or 0-50/50-100 if you are using two soldiers per squad)

The exact number of casualties is shown in some unit info screen. If the original strength w3as, say, 12 men, and they took 5 casualties, the actual strength would be displayed as

UNIT Sgt. Smith, 12-5

(look at some of the AARs by Fionn (turn 13 and after)
