Building your ground forces

December 2, 2014

Military Units (MU) in Takamo Universe are divisional sized units consisting of a number of brigades. The number and type of brigades allowed in a military unit will depend on the purpose of the unit and the technology of the empire. There will be a number of standard military unit types available to your empire as you start out. For example, the basic colonial infantry unit available to you at the beginning of the game consists of two colonial infantry brigades and one colonial mech brigade for a total of three brigades per military unit. You will also be able to design different military units of three brigades. For example, you might want your colonial infantry divisions to have an intrinsic artillery component so you could create a unit with two infantry and one artillery brigade or perhaps one infantry, one mech and one artillery brigade. With certain tech advances, you may be able to attach an additional brigade to the military unit. The options are many and varied.

What does this mean for players?

Empires will be able to mix and match various types of brigades to fashion military units intended to achieve that empire’s military and political goals. You can create a light, fast military unit or a slow moving, hard hitting behemoth. The choice will be yours to make.
