Default Re: The cost of specialist Infantry

Didn't we cover this in "Ogres and the Fuzzy-Wuzzy fallacy"?

One unit with twice as much firepower (or special abilities) shouldn't be twice as expensive as two separate units.

OK, let me go dig out my PDF...

Here we go, pg 35

Briefly, the Fuzzy Wuzzy Fallacy states that a man
with a firepower of 2X is not worth twice the value of a
man with a firepower of X, but rather roughly√2 as much,
after taking into account that one hit on either man kills
just as dead.
