When a division is at the starting position of an offensive battle plan (''i.e. a battle plan containing at least one Offensive Line or Spearhead order'') and is neither moving or fighting, it will accumulate a ''planning bonus'' at the start of each day, expressed as a percentage, until a maximum planning bonus is reached. This confers greater combat performance for the division.  
 
When a division is at the starting position of an offensive battle plan (''i.e. a battle plan containing at least one Offensive Line or Spearhead order'') and is neither moving or fighting, it will accumulate a ''planning bonus'' at the start of each day, expressed as a percentage, until a maximum planning bonus is reached. This confers greater combat performance for the division.  
  
The max planning bonus for each division (''initially capped at 30%''), or the rate of daily planning bonus accumulation, can be increased by certain [[Land doctrine]] choices and National Spirits. The base daily gain is 2%, so it will take e.g. 15 days to accumulate to the 30% cap. Using a general will also add both to the max planning bonus and the rate of daily planning bonus accumulation. Each point of a general's planning rating will contribute +2% of max planning bonus, and +5% to the daily planning bonus accumulation. However, the +5% to the daily planning bonus is multiplicative to the 2% daily base rate. So for example, when using a general with a planning rating of 4, he will add +8% to the max planning bonus (so 30% + 8% = 38%, assuming no other bonuses), and the daily planning bonus accumulation will be 2.4% (2% * (1 + (4 * 5% = 20%)) = 2.4%). Continuing the example, it will now take 16 days to complete the full planning bonus (38% / 2.4% = 15.8 days).

When a division with a planning bonus is moving or fighting, it will lose some of its planning bonus each day. The planning bonus for a division will decay slowly if the division is being automatically managed by the battle plan AI. If a division is manually commanded by the human player, the planning bonus will decay at a considerably faster rate.
