  • Separate combat ratings for attack & defense
  • Unlimited combat rounds
  • Normally, only the attacker can retreat
  • Normally, 1 hit kills a unit
  • Normally, the side taking casualties has full control ovcr what unit is hit

The overall effect is to favor the attack and make counterattack an important form of defense.
