Defense...

What makes the enemy just give up when you're defending? I've played two defense missions in a row as the Aussies, and both times, the enemy had pretty much broken my line on one side or another, and had a massive swarm of infantry left, and after a few minutes of sporadic fire exchanged, I won. It was about twenty minutes in, each time.

In one instance, they'd begun scaling the objective hill, and only a my commander and one surviving HQ man were left holding it, while the enemy still had a mass to my right flank, which was completely exposed after an artillery barrage took out my gun crew and recon squad.

Well the thing you have to remember is that when you are attacking,you don't exactly how many enemies there are.If I killed a whole bunch of enemies-I don't know if there's a whole f*cking platoon right there to kill me on the Objective.If I took heavy casaulties already,I might think twice to go thru with a final assault or just retreat.

I always keep pushing on the offense, until no one will advance anymore... I ended up taking the objective with the survivors of my HQ squad on my first mission of this campaign, because they were the only ones left with ammo.
