I thought I read on the wiki somewhere that your def allies can only add maximum 10% of your military strength. So let's say that i have 1m def break points. That means with 2 def allies they can add an additional 100k def points for a total break of 1.2m without tech?

A country I just tried to break at 100% readiness and no weapons tech had:

193k troops x .6 - 116k
705k turrets x 1 - 705k
20k tanks.x 3 - 60k

total break points of 880k. Assuming the 10% def ally is correct i can add 180k def ally points for a total of 1.06m def points.

Now i sent 1.6m jets with 15% weapons tech and failed...

Defense allies send up to 25% of their forces; combined ally strength can at most double your total defense as DruncK said.

No need to assume things are broken because you failed a grab :p

193k troops x .5 = 96k roughly (rounded up for mental math)
705k turrets x 1 = 705k
20k tanks.x 2 = 40k

Raw break = 841k (assuming zero tech/ gov difference)

Now double the raw and add 10 - 15% more for Mehul effect.

Given this fictitious example I would send 1.75 mil on a SS. I am a horrbile grabber though so, someone correct my mistakes please.

842k would be raw break with 0 weap and no def alliies as non-rep/dict (so 500 jets oversend) so with pangqz factor raw break (as non-rep/dict, no allies, no weap) would be 927k (842k+85k).

@marshall I sent 1.6m with 11% weapons tech and failed. The only way it fails is that the def ally (which had 0 weapons tech) matched his def, which it did not (had 60% of original country) . So it should have passed, but failed. Which was my original concern.

Did you spy the correct ally?, Maybe you missed a didgit on the ally and totally got the wrong guy and thought it was the one you initially thought it was...

In most cases you would break mrcuban. It's not often a bot will have the maximum double defensive points from allies.

842k (raw break) + 842k (max defence from allies) + 10% (Mehul factor) = 1.85m break

This is more than the 1.6M + 11% Weapons tech you sent.

As others have mentioned, if you want a guaranteed break, assume all bots have x2 defence.

Goodluck with your set, I expect to see a PB from you!

I don't usually spy all for bot grabs, but since this one failed got me thinking. Im currently only at 90% success rate at 203 grabs this set. Not sure if that is on par with the top guys for grabbing. I'm close to t10 on land as well.
