Competitions and clubs...
From the outset the Battletrax system was devised with wargame
competition in mind.
Based on its attributes of firepower, armour, and mobility we
have calculated an "asset" value for each tank.
The asset values can be viewed by
The provision of asset values not only provides a sense of a
tank's relative power, but also provides the opportunity to
organise games which have balanced red and blue teams. We can
set games at 5000 points value a side, or 100 a side, and
anything in between.
Although the system is designed to accommodate up to 20 players
a side it is more likely we will typically see a couple of
Tigers vs eight Shermans due to the disparity in tank type
Obviously the advantage of the Tigers can be realised better in
some tactical scenarios and less so in others. The game sets a
strategic challenge to select the assets best suited to
achieving the game objective.
We will encourage the establishment of clubs and actively
promote competition at local, national and international level.
