The story behind Heavy Armor 1
Increasing the armor on a unit to increase its chance of survival on the battlefield is as old as mankind itself. In modern times, we have seen an increased use of heavy armor with great success. This success, however, comes usually at a cost: Increased production cost and time, as well as higher operational cost such as fuel consumption and general maintenance. These drawbacks are represented in KARDS by deployment and operational costs.
