Now Don or someone else might call a "foul" here but I just had this situation. In a campaign battle I just finished a day ago, playing the French I have two Tigre HAD
" & "B
" from the beginning.
After several battles...
" comes into the game with about 3 or 4 kills. Not so much low Morale as low Experience
. During the course of the battle evading incoming at a lower rate, was suppressed easier and after it took a second hit and taking damage with no points assigned, I lost control of it and the crew left the map.
" 13 kills and is a veteran unit. Under attack evaded more often, didn't have to rally it but a couple of times. took hits as described above for "A
" and stayed in the fight. It wasn't until it took a hit with a 8 point damage
deduction that the crew took it back to the base. Which I would've "ordered
" myself in that case. They had gotten some kills and I believe were raised to elite status at the end of the game.
So for me it's about getting units their Experience
built up because their Morale will fall in line. And yes I'm sure there is some "calculation
" involved here as well.
A word of caution about ELITE
units, depending on the situation, I have to keep an eye on them more often than a less experienced unit which will at some point retreat. Elite units tend to stay and fight, not always a good choice. AI units will do the same as well it seems in the way I set my campaigns up.
