I think it would be a great idea if somebody came up with a battle calculator similar to the one in-game, for this and the other 2. See the problem is sometimes you want to make moves but are unsure if it would even be worth it because of a potential attack from the enemy on the next turn. Say I got a 4 pip elite NZ inf and a 1/2 pip elite Free French inf unit in Kaponga, now I could possibly move them to El Quseir to block supply trace from axis units that have pushed to the south east. But, both El Beida and Abu Sheiba have 1/2 3rd recon, 2/6 104th PzG, and 3/5 pip 5th panzer all elite, and 2/5 Triest, 2/5 Littorio, and 3/5 Ariete respectably. What would be the chances of my 5 pips vs. their 6 pip elite combo, or 7 pip Italian combo? As hard as I've tried, using the tables in the rule books don't give much help, so I wonder if there's a specific mathematical forumula, or calculations/ calculator, that would give us a "what if" battle chance calculator for us grognards that like to think ahead? Anybody here think they could figure out the math?
