Is it a smart idea to leave soldiers untrained? If so, when and why?

Thank you.

No it is not a smart idea to leave them untrained to answer your question untrained soldiers get killed easily so your casualties on yourself will be way higher as long as you have them.

what's your current total fighting force? if it's low enough it doesn't matter whether you train them or not specially if you don't have enough weapons to hold but if you have a huge TFF then it is better that they shouldn't be left untrained.

If you want to play the hidden defense trick, then untrained soldiers are a good idea...

Besides that, there's really no point.

As others have said above, if you are holding a large TFF then they die like frightened rabbits in headlights.

Sorry if this is telling you how to suck eggs, but....

Scenario One
SA soldiers 50
DA soldiers 50
Untrained 50

Neither here nor there

Scenario Two
SA soldiers 500
DA soldiers 50000
Untrained 500

They won't die as quick but kind pointless if they are not holding weapons

Scenario Three
SA soldiers 50000
DA soldiers 500
Untrained 500

Most effective if you are a large TFF account, only the 100 non SA are susceptable when you are attacked.

Scenario Four
SA soldiers 500
DA soldiers 500
Untrained 50000

You upset someone, and they are ok, let's mass the guy, you have a number of people throw turns on you and bish bash whallop, say goodbye to lots of untrained men.
