When you recruit units in Knights and Merchants there are symbols below the portrait of the unit you are recruiting. Although I know two of the symbols represent attack and defense, some units like the Pikeman have a third symbol. (looks like bunch of v's connected together) What does this symbol mean?
Here is a picture:
How do all of these symbols translate to actual combat? If you have one defense does that mean you have to be hit one more time to die?
