names of units are not derivative of their mission statements, but an indication of what whey are and all the other units have correct names in terms of the nomenclature of the day. This is not the case with so called "tactical bombers"While "tactical bomber" is a modern term, it more accurate describes the mission of the aircraft, as is evidenced by its eventual adoption. It was decided that this term would be less confusing to players than the more historically accurate "fighter-bomber". Calling it a fighter-bomber would just confuse the unit's role with that of a fighter.
Fighter-Bomber could not confuse anybody, it is perfectly understandable as a hybrid of both planes, which it is.
Bomber could also be called Strategic Bomber to give some distance, but when i hear this tactical bomber name, i think AA went in a time machine and let players have 1980's aerospace technology
No the Fighter-Bomber gives the tank a +1, Mech is closer to tanks and not infantry, they don't get boosted by artillery, but should be boosted by tanks +1How fast would Russia crumble?
Mechs would gain a +1 when paired with armor, but would lose the +1 when paired with artillery. I think this would pretty much be a wash.
The tank giving +1 to the TAC bomber is a little puzzling, but I think it is suppossed to represent some type of spotters with the tank units. I think taking that away would be fine as well.
Artillery can still boost infantry...just plain infantry.
yes thats better, each unit is somewhat chained together for combined arms bonuses and tanks got left out of the loop.Fighters give a plus one to TAC's
Tanks give a plus one to Mech
Artillery give a plus one to Infantry
I don't see how this would hurt Russia at all.
This is a mistake. Each unit should have some effect to one other unit.
Due to the 1-2 infantry, you may mess with the game if you started down this road. I do agree that some units could have this bonus.Another question is combined arms gives a +1 to the attack of units, but why are there no combined arms giving a +1 to the defending units?
Id like to see Mech get a +1 defense if paired with tank, Mechs should be a 2-3-2-5 unit
