Add DEFCON levels Status: Please read our response

Detailed Description:

Proposal to add "DEFCON" (Defense Condition) levels for all 3 types of forces. This would allow presidents to preset levels which will automatically activate/deactivate numbers of weapons. Example 1: President wants to keep 10,000 of certain types of Defensive weapons active and has incoming monthly contracts. DEFCON feature would allow specification of how many of each weapon should be kept active; each time weapons are delivered, some are auto-deactivated monthly to match presets. Example 2: War has been declared. President wants to activate all weapons ASAP. DEFCON level would be set to maximum; weapons are automatically activated at current rate of 10% per month. This would also work in reverse, when needing to deactivate en masse. In addition to allowing configuration of exact numbers, there should also be a general setting, which would include 5 DEFCON levels for all 3 weapon types, 5 being the lowest readiness level, 1 being the highest. ie. Def. Weapons at DE! FCON 3 activates/keeps 50% of all def. weapons active, Off. weapons at DEFCON 5 keeps all off. weapons deactivated, Strat. weapons at DEFCON 2 activates/keeps active 75% of all strat. weapons. Whether or not there should be a DEFCON level that affects all forces at once is debatable. However, presidents should be able to manage each category of weapons separately.

W3Creative reaction:

The idea is good and should be implemented. However, we are working on a different organization of the army and will implement it in the new setup. In the current setup we would have to add at least one field into the database for each weapon type which does not make much sense.

In the new organization, we will have army units. For each army unit, that can have any types of weapons and ammunition, there may be a DEFCON level attached. By changing the activation level in the country, complete army units will be moved into active service or back into the reserves.
