Draft #1 - We have to start somewhere

1. Program description: battle algorithm that runs selected fleets (attacker & defender) thru 10 rounds of fighting to compute winner, draw or complete annihilation of both fleets.
2. Error checking:
• Is the fleet/army still there?
• Is the target in the same location as the active game piece?
• Are you the owner of this game piece?
• Does this leader exist?
• Can this leader perform an action?
• Can this game piece move due to leader actions?
• Is attacker fleet destroyed? include leader and delete fleet
• Is defender fleet destroyed? include leader and delete fleet
3. Identification of program modules that use the code
• Home module
• Space Battle Module
4. Identification of tables that are used for input or get updated
• Ship (U)
• Fleet (U)
• Leader (U)

Add to that

Update data to attacker and Defender
if attacker fleet destroyed (include leader).. delete fleet
if defender fleet destroyed (include leader).. delete fleet

Post results to defender via PM
post results to attacker via PM and screen results.

Chance of Wreckage created.
