    Post Explaining military strategy and combat mechanics

    Hi Everyone,

    After reading through several threads of combat and military strategy, I've revamped the two wiki pages on the subject: the strategy guide and the reference guide.

    http://www.paradoxian.org/vicky2wiki...mbat_reference

    If you have any questions about something that isn't addressed good enough, or suggestions for something different, please let me know.

    If an army was solely artillery: no calvary or infantry, it would be extremely vulnerable to an attack. It would collapse within a very short period of time. Artillery is only powerful when the enemy force can be held at bay: all the more time for the art to pound the enemy. HOI3, obviously a different time period but a similar tactical reality, reflects this well by making ART a support unit that can't engage in front line combat for more than an instant.
