From Astro Wars
Combat value (CV) refers to how well a ship or starbase will fair in a battle.
Each of the three war ships has a Combat Value based on its attack and defense properties. A Starbase Combat value is based solely on its defense.
- Destroyers + Cruisers + Battleships =
- 10 * 3 + 2 * 24 + 10 * 60 = 30 + 48 + 600 = 678
It is most probable, but not always true, that a fleet with a higher CV than an opposing Fleet, or defensive Starbase will win the Battle, however, there are possibilities that it may not, luck and odds are a factor in every close battle.
