Unfortunately I does have any info on the exact placement of the German units in this scenario but doesn't the placement of the 3rd Battalion KG Hoffman together with the flak unit there look strange?
The flak unit is named "1st Hvy Flak Pl Weyrken Bridge 'static'", problem is the Weyrken Bridge is on the left side of the map.
Interesting is that if I would pull those troops 7 squares to the left and wouldn't change the placement inside the square the setup near the "Heider Heide" would seem to be perfect and would make more sense, unfortunately that doesn't mean that my assumption is correct.
Anyone got some info about this?

IIRC that's where they are set up in HTTR but as I researched this battle, it became apparent that the bridge west of Joes's bridge was blown and undefended by the Germans. So I gave the 2 88's to 3rd Battalion and placed them in a more favorable and probably more historical location. The towed guns defending this sector during the German retreat through Belgium rarely had transport, thus they remained static units.

Thanks for clarifying that.
