Jagged Alliance 2 computer game is one of the greatest turn based tactic RPG games after UFO: X-COM series.  The need for such games have brought a lot of mods created for JA2 gameplay engine. One of them is Urban Chaos. Another similar game for the fans is Silent Storm.
In JA2 UC we assemble a squad of mercenaries, all with their unique traits. The most important body statistics of the mercs are - Agility, Dexterity and Strength. These statistics are increased with hand to hand combat. Fighting another human in hand to hand is quite difficult, because almost everyone is caring weapons. So a good idea is to send the chosen squad to travel form one forest square to another during night. at some point they will be ambushed by Bloodcats(the native predator of the Arulco country). Bloodcats can be scary, but not when we are well prepared. Equip everyone with gas masks and tear gas grenades. Keep the squad tight and put weapons in the backpack. The main objective is to keep all visible cats without stamina, so they can not retaliate. That way, we can use hand to hand fight to rise Dexterity and Strength.

When the cats approaches, throw a tear gas in the squad feet and put the gas masks. If they are too many at once, use some blue bullets on them. When they reach the squad, use the best mercs for the first 3 punches on them, that will drain the remaining stamina so the cat can't move next turn. They may frorm time to time manage to make a scratch(when we miscalculate to punches, especially when they are more than 7), but its cool that will rise the merc's Agility and we may heal him later.

Agility is most important for speed and dodging punches and bullets. When fighting Bloodcats, our mercs will try to dodge the claws and if they do, agility will rise. High agility will also increase the chance of interrupting enemies during their turn.

Dexterity is important to everything from bandaging, close combat, firing, repairing, practically everything. It is easily raised when punching Bloodcats.

Strength will affect how many items the merc can carry and the hand combat damage. If we want to be flexible, having backup weapons, grenades, good armor and most of gadgets, we need a lot of strength.
Another idea to increase strength is to overload a merc and just send him to travel aimlessly trough the map. This is risky and time consuming though.
