Officer's Manual: Private

Abilities of a soldier at the rank of Private

Privates

Private is the lowest rank of soldier in active service, and the starting rank for all soldiers at the beginning of a game.

Privates have the lowest movement, attack and defence stats of all ranks, and are weaker than any soldier occupying any vehicle except a Boat.

Movement range

Soldiers have the ability to travel over all types of terrain, including the Sea. Like Tanks they find Roads and Building tops easiest to travel across, but can also make their way across Mountains and through Forests.

Soldiers are very sensitive to the angle of the terrain they are travelling across, and as well as being penalised for travelling up slopes they also suffer an additional penalty when travelling down steep slopes, although they find shallow downward slopes slightly easier than flat terrain.

Although soldiers can swim as well as walk, they must always use a Jump to switch between the Sea and the land. They cannot swim and walk in the same turn.

Attack and Defence levels

Private Attack and Defence Meters
Defence level: 26%
Attack level: 40%

The Private has fairly weak attack and defense levels. It is worth noting that four attacks from enemy Privates (the maxium possible in a turn) will not quite be enough to demob a Private at 100% health (they will do 97% damage), so its never possible for one team to demob a soldier of the opposing team on the first turn.

Attack type and range

Weapon Specification

Payload delivery system:

Line of sight

Ammo units per shot:

One

Impact radius:

Target cell only

Attack range min / max:

0 cells / 8 cells

The Private's attack range is 8 cells, which is more than the Tank but less than all other vehicles, and he uses a line of sight weapon. This means that he needs to be able to clearly see his target, as well as it being in range, in order to be able to launch an attack.

All line of sight weapons have zero minimum range (they can shoot targets in the adjacent cell), and cannot be used when the soldier is swimming.

Special properties

All soldiers are protected from line of sight weapon attacks when stood in Forests. If they are on the edge of a Forest they can sometimes be attacked if the enemy is fairly close, and they can usually be attacked within a Forest if the enemy is stood right next to them, but otherwise they can only be attacked by soldiers in vehicles.
