Title: Artillery in Strategic Battleforce
Post by: Vic_Vic on 15 September 2021, 08:59:11
Hi, I have some doubts with how artillery works in this system.

Let´s say I have an Artillery formation, comprised of three units. Each unit is a Long Tom lance. As the Long Tom basic damage is 6, a lance damage is (6*4 units)/3 = 8, so each unit should have the ART-LT8

Now, when firing, can this formation make only one artillery attack per turn, even if they have three units? Would it be useless then to have more than one artillery unit in a formation?

Also, if it´s only one attack per turn, and the artillery attack hits, would it inflict 8 damage (for the LT8)? Or would it be the damage combined of the three units?

Many thanks!
