=== Technology ===
Technology is a key component of gameplay, and essential in fielding a modern army. Technology will invariably be where the bulk of your leadership points are allocated. The tech tree is very detailed and extensive: to avoid constant micromanagement, it may be helpful to queue up research (e.g. queue up 50-70 technologies at any given time) and let the system run hands-off for a year or so. See [[Research strategy]] for a more in-depth overview.
