In Kohan, your attack number is how much damage you will do to a target, and your defense is how many points will be blocked when you are hit.  Attack values range from 16 and up for normal combat units, and defense is anywhere from 0 to 4 (unusual).  Now, you can research bonuses to attack and defense.  For 300 gold each you can either raise your attack or defense by 2.  Would you ever feel compelled to raise your defense, for that kind of money?

I would say defence upgrades are actually more important that attack upgrades. If two equal units face each other, the attack and defence upgrades have a symmetric effect (i.e. do X% more damage or take %X less damage). Against low AV units, DV upgades are more benefical and against high DV units, AV upgrades give more % punch.

Alhtough the defence number seem small compared to attack numbers, this is because they are not supposed to completely nullify the attack (that would be pretty overpowered), just slice a small (but percentually significant) portion off.

And besides, there are lots of things that accumulate defence. If you have experienced units, a support unit that enhances defence and entrench them, you can have DV values in the 15+ range. That's pretty much a total immunity to the smaller AV units.
