considered using the reinforcement mechanism to "air-transport" your SAM teams in-place
No - i think the reinforcement mechanism is used for placing new units?
Yes, the reinforcement mechanism is meant to bring off-map units on the map some time after the scenario start. If your SAM teams would have been brought in from behind the front (off map), you could approximate air-transport using the reinforcement mechanism.
Your AAR looks very interesting. Cool to see you create and run your own scenario.
Great to see you working with one of the newer northern Fulda Gap maps! Btw, why did you pick the small Huenfeld area instead of the big one (Eiterfeld)?
You may want to try the alternate map graphics (flavor D from this thread) to make your AAR more authentic.
Wrt 1975: the game let's you create your own TOE database, correcting any issues you discover (availability of the Leo2, Gepard, MARS1 vs MARS2, presence of Milan vs Dragon ATGM), and play the game with the units you want. See the 'FPC Modding Guide 4 National Databases.pdf' in the documents folder. But I would leave that for a next scenario...
We'd really appreciate if you can pass on any discrepancies (such as above) you find in the Bundeswehr national database, preferably along with sources. We're in the process of reworking the database for Southern Storm, and like to offer the most accurate database possible. In English to Cap Darwin, or in German to me (in case German is less effort).
Be aware that Norwegian fjords aren't as easily modeled in Flashpoint Campaigns; Red Storm as the central European theatre; the fjords are really steep, and fighting probably would boil down to light (dismounted) infantry fights with armor being restricted/channeled into a few easily blocked roads and valleys. Probably closer to the Falklands than to Fulda Gap, and perhaps better modeled at 250m than 500m scale.
Harryvdk, one of the map makers visiting this forums, has been working on a fjord map.
I'm having fun reading the AAR. But it is very gruendlich...
