Gothic Ride beta PBEM

Got an interesting idea about a new scenario design? ...or maybe you just need some help with the Scenario Editor; this is the place!

What the British called a "brigade" is almost the same thing as what the Germans called a "regiment", so regiments should be 4 step unless they only had 2 battalions.

-

I'm also in doubt whether those figures you posted are correct for this battle.

Historically, the Allies on the entire Gothic Line (keep in mind that this scenario covers only part of it) were very hard pressed on replacements and reserves, due to the Dragoon landings and operations in France having a greater priority in general.

After checking on some literature and browsing through the Wikipedia entry on the Gothic line, it seems the scenario is missing an entire British Corps with 3 infantry divisions, an armoured division and an Indian division. The New Zealand division is in the scenario.

It seems the British ended up suffering so many losses that couldn't be replaced that the 1st Armoured Division had to be temporarily disbanded. The Germans actually ended up with more reserves because their lines were shortened. If Allied reserves had been "unlimited" the Allies would've won the battle in Italy in 1944, but they didn't.

In the few next days I'll be able to attach a new release of this scenario.

But It's not so easy to do a great job, there are so many variables to consider to make a fun balanced (and historical) complete game.

Yes in fact it seems that I forgot to add part of the British V Corps. To be included in the next release.

Yes I think it was less or more the same

Somehow, that seems to be similar to the older version.

Axis regiments still have 3 steps, Allied units 4.

Not sure whether laska's still around, but I rarely delete any of the scenario files I download.
