is that German and Red Army elite units would have better morale than units in a Cold war campaign, but that is just a guess.
I probably wouldn't agree with that. During the first stages of the war I would think morale would be high on both sides. A lot of time was spent telling everyone how much better at this they were than the other guy. So, for me at least, I think morale would be high for both sides at first. After the realities of combat set it then is when morale would take a hit. If you check I have morale fairly high for both sides at times.
Training is a different issue. This is there the WWII units should have the edge, depending on the theater and time of war. They learned their trade pretty quickly or there were no Grandkids later.
The order giving cycle should be much much longer for the Red Army, probably three times? How 'd that affect PBEM?
OK here is my silly attempt to give you some suggestions, for the values for Wehrmacht and Red Army.
I'd divide the command radius by 3 for the Germans and by 5 for the Russians
Electronics: 2 and 1
Training: 9 and 2 (41-42) 3 (43) 4 (44 and later, Guard units)
Morale: 85 vs 20 (41-42), 30 42) 40 (44-45) allow for veteran/elite/Guard/SS
Air strike delay: 1 hour for the red army
Artillery: double the times for the germans, quadruple for red army
Engineering crossing time values: double at least? But both sides had good crossing capabilities given some planning.
For me there is no cut and dried numbers. It is soley dependent on unit, theater and timeframe as to which units are at what level.
The most expensive thing in the world is free time.
