Setting up Military Units - recruiting soldiers

Once all weapons, ammunition and materials are available, it becomes possible to set up military units and add them to your army.

Military units need soldiers and officers to function and their numbers depend on the types of weapons and their numbers that are used in the setup of the unit. Each type of weapon has a crew that is operating the weapon. The total number of soldiers and officers that are needed to operate all the weapons in the military unit are part of the unit.

The operating crews are recruited from the general population at the time the weapons are delivered in the country. The number of soldiers and officers depends on the number of weapons even if the weapons are residing at the military bases and not used yet in military units.

Military units may be disbanded if there are shortages of soldiers and officers.

When armies are large, the remaining number of medium level managers may not be sufficient and factories may be forced to stop production. The availability of the older managers who cannot be recruited by the army may prevent a total collapse of the economy and give the user some time to increase the education priorities for such managers and reduce the shortage.

The availability of medium level managers is a very important issue. Having a sufficient number of unemployed medium level managers is in fact needed if the army must increase its capabilities and the economy is expected to keep at a high pace. Many players fail to manage this issue and their economy suffers. As was mentioned before, the professional army can provide a different solution to the problem by reducing the need for recruitment of workers and managers.
