Quick Overview

The army_professionalism command in Europa Universalis IV is used to set the army professionalism level of a specified target country.

The default value for army professionalism is 100, which indicates a fully professional, full-time standing army. Changing this value can influence the effectiveness of the target country's military in the game.

For example, a higher value would mean a more proficient army, while a lower value might suggest a less proficient, perhaps part-time or militia-based, force. This command is beneficial when you want to change the dynamics of warfare and strategy within the game.

In-Depth Description

In Europa Universalis IV (EU4), the army_professionalism command is a cheat code that players can use to adjust their own or another country's army professionalism.

The default value given to this command is usually 100, which means the army's professionalism is set to 100% or the maximum level.
