Hello

As far as I know this asterisk means that there are two 160th Rifle Division on the map. I think this should reflecting that the soviets in WW2 also had units with the same name ate the same time active. ( I know the Germans also had once two 9th Mountain Division).

If you wait a couple of turns, the unit with the asterisk will get a new name.. you have to be patient but it will happen.

Hope it helps...

The unit that would become the 89th Guards was raised in Gorkii (now Nizhnii Novgorod), Gorkii Military District as the 160th Rifle Division, in June of 1941. The component units of this new division were the 1293rd, 1295th, and 1297th Rifle regiments, and the 973rd Artillery regiment. The division was rapidly demolished in the early fighting, and the 160th Rifle Division (second formation) was raised at Moscow in November of 1941 with the same regimental numbers.

So if the Gorkii division isn't demolished in game, you end up with a 160*th Rifle Division until it's renamed?

Not sure about this. One of the data guys will have to look at it.

There will also be a copy of an 11th rifle brigade.
