Basic of Combat
Theer are three type of combat in Area00.
- Air-to-air combat (dog fight)
- Air-to-surface combat against moving target or AAA
- How Does Bombing Work?
This depends on the number of armors the target has. For example, "Command Center" has a 40 armor, while F-15E has a Mk.82 Bomb with a 18 attack.
In a bombing, F-15E has a 18 * 0.3 = 5.4 chance of scoring a hit. However, on average, "Command Center"'s 40 armors will block 40 * 0.3 = 12 hits of damage.
That means that F-15E will only injure "Command Center" when by luck "Command Center"'s armor roll below average.
- How Does Air-to-Air Combat Work?
This depends on the number of speeds and armors the opponent has. For example, F-16 Falcon has a 16 speed, a 5 armor and a sidewinder missile with a 10 attack, while F/A-18 has a 14 speed, a 6 armor and an AMRAAM missile with a 13 attack.
In a fight, F-16 is faster than F/A-18, has an initiative of attack. F-16 has a 10 * 0.3 = 3.0 chance of scoring a hit. On average, F/A-18's 6 armor will block 6 * 0.3 = 1.8 hits of damage. F-16 will do 3.0 - 1.8 = 1.2 hits of damage. 1.2 is closer to 2, so F-16 do a 2 damage.
F/A-18 will, on average, score 13 * 0.3 = 3.9 hits, with F-16's armors stopping only 5 * 0.3 = 1.5 hits of damage. F/A-18 will do 3.9 - 1.5 = 2.4, round to 3, 3 hits of damage.
- How Does Air-to-Surface Combat Work?
It is same with Air-to-Air Combat but the oppenent is not an aircraft but moving target like truck, tank and SAM.
