I recently sold all of my offensive weapons on KB to reduce monthly costs. I have no slave nations and no immediate plans to take one.
However, my offensive index has been static at 11.43 for some time now. I only have 1 military base and 1 airport and the costs of circa 4B, together with the index amount seem excessive. I have recently been able to increase monthly profit, but this cost is still something I can do without. Plus, I'm sure it doesn't take 79,650 personnel to man 1 airport and 1 base.
Does anyone know if this is a bug or an intentional occurence? Or some other reason, perhaps?
And while I'm here - does anybody know if there is a chart available for index points per offensive weapon? As there is for defensive weapons. It would prove handy when I go for Level 5.

don't bother about that
just buy 60,000 MIBs on the way

You don't need offensive index for any of the levels.
Check your units, as far as the offensive index goes. Check your stocks too.

It could be ammo stocks, or lack of, that's caused the OI figure to be where it is. I definitely only have 1 airport and 1 base and have done for some time.
I thought that defensive index incorporated offensive weapons, but this is obviously not the case.

It does, 50% def, 25% off and 25% strategic.

Ammo doesn't affect any of the indexes.

Q - I read on a thread (by Laguna) that strategic ammo does impact the index.

Strategic ammo does affect the index.

Ok I will defer on that one, as I don't have experience with nuclear weapon stocks.
However, Offensive and Defensive ammo has no effect on indexes. Which was Kiteless's concern (offensive).
Interesting that strategic ammo has an effect though.

It's my understanding that ammo stocks do affect indexes. I believe that it is a lack of offensive ammo normally used monthly by the population that is the cause of the relatively high figure of my offensive index. Plus, a look at the OI figures of a few other countries appears to support this.
This matter is now being addressed with appropriate orders.
Also, I wasn't aware that the defensive index requirement for level 5 could be attained by simply doubling up on defense index, but I am now.
Thanks as always to those who have contributed

I can assure you 100% that defensive and offensive ammo don't affect the indexes. Completely and totally.

That may be the case, Q, but I'm still none the wiser as to why I have an offensive index figure of 11.43 for 1 airport and 1 base, and a subsequent monthly spend of circa 4B.

Check to make sure you have no offensive units. No offensive weapons in stock.
There definitely is *something* causing that high of an offensive index.
For comparison, this is my main:
Offensive Force Index 0.68
Number of Soldiers 8,000
Number of Officers 1,600
Total size of Offensive Staff 9,600
Monthly Running Cost 24.44M SC$
I have the same 1 airport, 1 base.
Has to be something somewhere which is causing that index to be higher.

I had forgotten about this thread.
It's still stuck on 11.43.
I have sent an email, asking for it to be looked at and checked for possible errors. Something is clearly not right and Defense Index is not right, either.

I know the cause of this now, hence problem resolved
It was caused by weapons in military wings - these have now been disbanded.
Can someone please confirm that a Defensive Force Index of 200 and other military indexes of zero equates to a Defense Force Index of 100?
I am going for level 5 purely on MIB's. I have the required number, plus a few more to speed it up. I am just waiting for the system to play catch-up with this and health.
