Declaring war - Initial Delay

When declaring war against a country with a president, the time between war declaration and the start of the war is at least 24 real hours on all the worlds.

The delay allows defenders to have some preparation time before war starts. This may be needed to reactivate the reserves and organize the army for imminent war. Some may store weapons in an enterprise and some may have weapons and ammunition on a space station to be moved to where they are needed. This can take time, hence the 24 hours delay.

In case your opponent is not available, the system will use the available weapons to protect his country as good as possible but will not automatically purchase any weapons for him. The defense will use the available weapons. If the attacked country has army reserves, these reserves will become active at a rate of 10% of the total number of available weapons in the country, per game month.

If the defender has stealth bomber units, these will be used to counter attack.

Wars are different in case you attack your neighbor or a country with no common border. If you attack a neighbor, you may use all offensive weapons. If there is no common border, you may use only the air force and missiles but no ground forces. As each weapon has a limited range, attacks may be limited to the long-range weapons. Attacks may be impossible if the country you want to attack is too far away and beyond the reach of your weapons.

Air landings and the transport of military units will be needed. The air force will be less efficient as long as no land forces from your country are invading the enemy's country and are positioned close to targets that are attacked by the air force.

If a country is outside the maximum range of all the weapons, (Max distance of about 10.000), war will become impossible. In order to attack a far away country, you need to first conquer a country which is closer to yours and then, launch an attack from that conquered country if the remaining distance allows. (This is easier said than done but sure enough, possible). Landing forces is also limited to a distance of up to 10.000. Mobile units however, can land by use of cargo shuttles in any of your remote bases (and those of your fed partners).
