That's true. But with only 5 rounds, the advantage will always go to the
winning streak. The chances of flukes with a 2hp unit taking out a 5 hp unit is
much greater than a 20 hp taking out a 50 hp. The reason I believe there is
such a multiplication is because of the Civ 2 files. If you have civ 2
installed, read their equivalent of rulesets. In there it mentions that hps are
multiplied by 10, so a 1 in the hp column means 10 hps. I believe the same is
true of Civ III.
Unfortunatley, I do not own it.

Important: Civ III combat is badly implemented. If you read the site, you know
the players wanted Civ 2 style, with firepower implemented. Too many cases of
batttleship vs phalanx being won by that phalanx.
