Do Mountain units have any advantages over other infantry units? I looked over the rules and the Unit Blog but I didn't find anything.
Thanks.

Mountain units ended up being used mostly as light infantry in this campaign. We gave them one more movement point and made them slightly weaker in defense - i.e. "light" but other than that, they're the same as infantry.

I hope that in the future you'll consider giving them something like a combat shift when fighting in mountain hexes, since they were specially trained units and some scenarios do have mountain hexes,

You are correct.

We cut this corner out of expediency, and to make up for that I added an extra experience shift to both mountain units (the made-up "Gruppe Lanz" and the Romanian 2nd Mtn) in the only scenario where they're actually likely to fight in the mountains: "Baku".

I pulled a similar trick with Soviet ski units in "Don Offensives": instead of giving them ability to negate the snowy weather shift, I simply gave both of them one extra exp in that scenario.

So yeah, it's definitely a "there I fixed it" moment, but hopefully not a biggie

Thanks for the info. I played the Baku scenario but didn't pick up on the fact that they were given an extra experience shift. I still hope that as you make future changes to your great game you'll do permanent changes to units which had unique training or at least mention in a readme that they are given special abilities in certain scenarios.
