These rules are not constructed based on hard data, but instead, are made to reflect certain outcomes common to warfare in this period. Some broad tactical factors are taken into consideration, as all strategy is built on tactics, but here again, reflecting a unitís operational role in a battle has been considered of more importance than number crunching minute details. The system of rating units (particularly AFV armour values) is designed to be theatre and year specific. As an example take the KV2, in 1941 it would have heavy tank armour and a fearsome reputation, in 1943 it has lost itís reputation and would be regarded as obsolete. No universal system of rating would allow for this change, but CFV does. Necessarily of course this means that to get the most out this system you must have a good working knowledge of the Second World War, or least of the campaign that forms the backdrop to your battles.
