  • Preparation - the ranger units take a position that is suited for an ambush (L-shaped or V-shaped formation). Grenadiers will place mines along the likely path of the enemy.
  • Initiation - marksmen will engage the enemy at long range, targeting vulnerable units; the enemy will be forced to close the distance quickly which triggers the mines.
  • Culmination - all units engage the enemy: rangers shoot at advancing enemy units; Grenadiers hit tight formations with projectiles. The objective of this phase is to break the enemy's formations and their will to fight.
  • Conclusion - rangers will snipe out retreating units; Grenadiers will destroy massed enemies. If the battle has turned against them, the Rangers will try to withdraw to a secondary position and repeat the same steps.
