1) Would infantry guns be counted as separated subunits? would they need separate replacement points from infantry
2) The Austrian 6pdr was the star of the war, being the first gun produced under the Griveaubal system, is that taken into the game?
3) Are howitzers represented as separated models with different statistics?
4) Is there a siege train? and the Prussian Horse Arty?
5) Is the battery the basic Artillery unit? is it composed of a single model, or more?
6)Are there any mixed units of Artillery and infantry or cavalry?
Just to start...

Duffy puts the breakdown for the losses as 19,500 and 172 Artillery pieces for the Prussians and 15,500 for the Allied forces. Wikipedia losses for the Prussians is much too high since their total forces only amounted to 50,000 according to Duffy.

The Prussian army was pretty much gone at the end of the battle - so yes casulaties of 85% or something like that. Of course most of those casualties were missing rather than dead or wounded, so they were made good over the next few weeks. But they were casualties none the less - the units had simply disintegrated.

Huge country, lots of soldiers, well known for having massive guns (and lots of them), always willing to share Poland with you ... sounds like someone you shouldn't underestimate and try to be friends with.
By the way, can't wait to see how Ageod will "rate" the units of the different nations.
The Prussians will probably have good "discipline" and "musket fire" ratings, while the Russians will probably be more into bayonet charges and hard to break by musket fire alone.
