# Flank Attack

From Wack-a-doo

The Mounted Unit Type can use its special ability of **flank attacking** to change the Attack Order, and bypass the infantry in order to directly attack the artillery.

To do so, the opponent must have no more mounted units and the attackerâ€™s mounted units must be protected by its Infantry. The probability depends on the numerical ratio between the infantries of the attacked and the attacker.

#### Calculating the Probability

The probability depends on the number of infantries of the army divided by the number of the opponentâ€™s infantries.

- If the quotient is greater than or equal to 2, the probability is: 0.8
- If the ratio is 1-2, the probability is: quotient * 0.5 - 0.2
- If the quotient is less than 1, the probability is: quotient * quotient * 0.3
