/ Introduction \_______________________________________________________________

Thank you for taking the time to look at my strength/weakness guide for
Batallion Wars. This is my first guide, so don't kill me if it sucks. But look
at it this way: If it sucked, you wouldn't be looking at it, would you? (Well,
maybe you would, but that's beside the point.)

/ Matrix Abbreviations \_______________________________________________________

Before you take a look at the matrix, here is a description of the
abbreviations you will find in this guide:

RG - Rifle Grunt
AS - Assault Veteran
FL - Flame Veteran
BZ - Bazooka Veteran
MI - Missile Veteran
MO - Mortar Veteran
LT - Light Tank
HT - Heavy Tank
LR - Light Recon
HR - Heavy Recon
AA - Anti-Air Vehicle
AT - Artillery
BS - Battlestation
TC - T-Copter
BM - Bomber
FG - Fighter
GS - Gunship
SD - Strato Destroyer

/ Matrix Notes \_______________________________________________________________

Now, before you say, "But Kyora, you're forgetting some units!" take note of
the following:

* The Minigun units hold the same attributes as an Assault Veteran.
* The Acid Gas units hold the same attributes as a Flame Veteran.
* The Rocket units hold the same attributes as a Bazooka Veteran
* The Ack-Ack units hold the same attributes as a Missile Veteran.
* The Grenade units hold the same attributes as a Mortar Veteran.
* The Watchtower, MG Nest, MG Bunker, and Pillbox units are not included in
the matrix.

/ The Matrix \_________________________________________________________________

Now that we have any confusion clarified, here's the matrix. The attacking
units (Your own units) are displayed in the rows, while the defending units
are displayed in the columns. Each units has one of three strength levels; S
being strong against that unit; A being average against that units; and W being
weak against that unit. Simple, eh?
