Has anyone figured out exactly how this works? I haven't found an entry for it in the civilopedia. It's 4:00 am here and i've spent an hour looking on these forums for the info but I can't find it and I've lost patience Anyways, the obvious. If one unit has first strike, and the other doesn't, then I assume it means that the unit with first strike gets a chance to "kill" a hitpoint of the other unit before any real fighting starts. I also assume this means that a normal roll is made, and that if the roll fails, it just means the first strike misses and then it goes to normal combat. Does first strike work when attacking as well as defense? What happens when both units have first strike? Anyways, anyone who can clear this up for me, I thank you! Also, I've noticed you can get up to Drill 4, which gives 2 extra first strikes... this means a navy seal, normally 1-2 first strikes, could have 3-4 first strikes, meaning it could outright kill another unit without even being shot back at... is this correct?
