Notes

  • Mountain divisions are considered soft units
  • Mountaineers have higher org and morale, reduced soft and hard attack values, and cost more IC and more manpower compared to a normal infantry of the same year.
  • They get far less combat penalties when fighting in winter, frozen, snow or even blizzard conditions.
  • They get attack and defence bonuses in mountains and hills, which increase further along the tech tree.
  • In fact, the defence bonuses can get so staggeringly high that it becomes impossible to get a few mountaineer divisions out of a mountainous province during winter using conventional warfare.
