From: Turin, Italy
(1) The manual does not have a column for Infantry to show the River Impact on combat.
There is the table on page 49, River penalty for Hitpoints (ATT), then you have to read the terrain info for more detail.
(2) The order of the COMBAT numbers appear to be out of sync with the MOVE order. The MOVE order is VOLGA, Major, Minor, Medium. In attack if you assume the minor river has the least impact of the 4 rivers, the order would be 20/30/50/40 to be consistent. In other words, the order is exactly the opposite of what it should be. If that is mistake, that would be a benefit to the Soviets because the game would consider minor rivers to be the VOLGA for attack purposes.
From previous example, Infantry 50%/40%/20%/30% would be respectively Volga, major, minor and medium river.
[B] The armor numbers do not match the manual at all. The manual has Volga 20, Major 35, Minor 65, Medium 50. (1) No matter what order you place these in, none of them match the three types of armor in the Hex info.
Maybe is not easy to read but these values are correct.
Manual says: Volga 20%, major 35%, medium 50% and minor 65%. They are the percentage remaining of attack points for armor and if you look under the row Medium Tanks you will find the penalties: 80%, 65%, 35%, 50% (sum 100% for all of them but the last two, maybe they should be reversed).
(2) The hex info has different numbers for light, medium, and heavy tanks. The manual just says armor.
Correct, in fact the armor values should be read as Medium Tanks.
