If needed, I hope to adjust the scenario so that the AI gives a reasonable fight playing both sides using just one scenario.
Thats a tough challenge - if you manage it this map could be a multiplayer candidate.

I would like to force the German AI to play more defensively, any rules etc to accomplish that?
What i noticed was a missing description. You can add a small text that appears before loading the scenario to describe it.
You have to add it in the <Scenario> header like this:
description-en="Northern Russia, Leningrad 19 September 1941:& #x0A; & #x0A;The German leaders demand the conquest of Leningrad and strengthen Army Group North for the attack. The Soviets try to defend the city and lift the siege from the East.& #x0A;Length: 20 turns"
" & #x0A; " orders a line break but there is no space between & and #x0A; it was added to avoid the command being interpreted by the browser.
You should add somthing like "Author: Erik Nygaard" thats a nice touch imho.
I also realized there are some units with blinking updates on the German side - i don't know it thats wanted. They are few enough to be not annoying though.
Currently the German player is chosen by default - maybe for testing the Soviet player is the better choice (even though you want both sides tested)?
You can determine a preselection with adding preferred="1" to one of the sides' <Player>.
The map looks great but is also very huge - maybe a bit too big.
Its fun to have those different fronts during a single battle. I did not have time to play far though but i am looking forward to continue my mission when there is a free spot.
There should be an intro txt, at least there is a bit of info in the scenario selection list. I cannot check now since I am writing this on a restaurant in Crete
Yes, I will make the Russian the default player, good point.
I was thinking of reusing the map for a German offensive towards Murmansk to save time. But I think I need to be able to add/remove map rows for this, hint-hint
As the Russians you need to fight 2-3 separate battles. I think this adds to the various strategies the attacker may choose.
Now, back to my meal.
