Military units and garrisons can be upgraded by the use of weapon upgrading products and ammunition upgrading products. One upgrade is needed to upgrade one weapon by one point. In the same way, one ammunition upgrade product is needed to upgrade one piece of ammunition by one point.
Weapons can be upgraded once per game month and targets can be set so that automatic upgrades will take place each game month.
Ammunition can be upgraded twice per game month and targets can be set so that automatic upgrades will take place each game month.
Many weapons and many types of ammunition will be allowed in time to be upgraded to very high levels. This will make it possible for countries to keep a small army of very high quality and remain secure without committing very large numbers of soldiers and officers to the army.
For some weapons, very high quality levels do not make sense because the destruction capacity at quality 200 may already reach 100%. In cases where upgrading is just costly and does not help, max levels will be implemented per weapon and ammunition type, to prevent players from spending their money for zero effect.
Weapon and ammunition upgrading products are available in Simcountry for use in the upgrading of military units.
Weapon Quality Upgrades (WQU)
These products are used to upgrade military unit weapons quality. One WQU is needed for each weapon in the unit. To upgrade the weapons quality of a unit that has 600 weapons by one quality point, 600 WQUs are needed. The weapons quality of the unit can be upgraded by one point each game month if the products are available.
Ammunition Quality Upgrades (AQU)
These products are used to upgrade military unit ammunition quality. One AQU is needed for each piece of ammunition in the unit. To upgrade the ammunition quality of the unit that has 6000 pieces of ammunition by one quality point, 6000 AQUs are needed. The unit ammunition quality can be upgraded by two points each game month if the products are available.
Upgrading Navy Units
Navy quality upgrading is not implemented yet and will be added at a later stage.
Monthly reduction in quality Weapons and ammunition, stored in military units will see their quality decline in time. If the upgrading process continues, the degradation of the quality will be negligible. If no upgrading takes place, the quality could decline in time and sink to a much lower level. The quality decline is 0.05 per game month.
