DOF's combat is quite different, it is more RPG style than any other rts I've seen. If you have 2 v 1 soldiers of the exact same type, rank, research, armor, stance, and ability then those 2 soldiers will take turns attacking the lonely soldier, all he can really do is block the attacks, his chances of attacking back will be reduced as he has to block more attacks.

Out numbering your enemy is a pretty good tactic, but doesn't always work if he uses archers correctly and you don't spread out your troops, well that machine gun tactic will come into play ; you must also take skill level of your units and his.
The rank and skill of your units has a large impact on combat, it could be very easy to recreate a "300" moment with high ranking units blocking a small pathway with hundreds of unranked and unskilled enemies.
