Correct me if I am wrong, Autumn Fog is Model's Small Solution, the same as Rundstedt's Plan Martin , only without the north pincer? If so, where is the XII SS Korps deployed?
XII SS Korps is in the Roermond area, just north of Aachen and at the most northern part of the scenario map.
The way I understand it, Rundstedt submitted Plan Martin, and Model submitted Herbstnebel (Autumn Fog) independently. Martin was a two pronged attack on Aachen. Model was more concerned with the US Forces located around Aachen (about 12 divisions), and decided to have several divisions in reserve (in order to react to how the US divisions were deployed) and to forgo the northern pinzer.
In this scenario, the German player can choose Autumn Fog, Martin, the Grand Slam, or a drive on Metz (based on Theater Options) that direct the additional divisions to the chosen area.
If playing the Allies against a German PO, the PO will choose which plan to use, so the Allied player will not know the objective initially.
