8.2 Attack a government location

On the map you will find some government location which can be captured. Each of the location are strategically good to defend, this will give the defender some advantages. If you defend a government location you receive a 20% defence bonus.

When you attack a government location the combat follows the next phases.

Surprise attack: Since the government locations are under constant threat of attack, it is not possible to perform a surprise attack against it.
Mortar phase: Before the battle begins, your attacking mortars are allowed to fire upon the enemy positions. Each unit killed in this phase will not be able to defend the town and is also not calculated in the defense score.

Mortar counter fire: Defending mortars return fire upon attacking forces. Also units killed in this phase will not be calculated in the attacking score.

Assault phase: Troops of both sides will now engage each other, defending structures will open fire upon the assaulting troop, militia will join the battle and casaulties will be calculated.

Result: The formula for War:

Attack = Units total attacking score + Hero bonus + Extremist (tech1)

Defend = 300 + Units total defeding score + Capital bonus + Hero bonus + Liberal (tech1) + (Sentry x 25) + (Bunker x 70) * 20% defence bonus.

Remember that defensive structures without power only defend with half of their points

In the game there are 3 degrees for wining and 3 for loosing.
