Forums: Index > Playing Freeciv > 2-3 tile wide isthmus with enemy across beats me

I have trouble invading a city located on a 2-3 tile wide isthmus as seen in my screenshot gallery.

 
Freeciv-Prussians-save Y0150-start
Freeciv-Prussians-save Y0150-Starum
Freeciv-Prussians-save Y0150-Drylts scouted

You may also see the units of my army in the city window (for Starum) ; in addition there's a legion underneath the city and a catapult aside. To show what's behind the FOW, I moved a unit toward the enemy but away from its city, Drylts, but I keep getting attacked (which the related screenshot show).

It's hard for me to describe the problem as I'm not proficient at the game and in the genre in general. I hope the screenshots help on showing how a beginner would get obliterated by attacking. I have the game save on freeciv easy AIs as Prussians Y-0150 | DynV homepage and I could always make a video of an attempt if need be (just let me know).

Thank you kindly for your help DynV (talk) 08:26, June 2, 2013 (UTC)

I've noticed hardened and elite best military unit type wouldn't be attacked. So I surrounded the enemy base with them then made fortresses where they were fortified then was going to attack from the fortresses. I didn't go so far as to do it as I went for another strategy.
