According to Wikipidia, the ARMIR - Armata Italiana in Russia - ( Italian Army in Russia) had max 235.000 soldiers.

December 1942, in my game patched 1.11, the italian army has 345.000 men (+47%). It is not exaggerated ?

Be careful citing Wikipedia as an authoritative source. Better to check the original sources they cite as references plus a reliable independent source. Also ARMIR figures and 8th Italian Army figures are often conflated in secondary sources.

In "When titans clashed" David M. Glantz and jonathan M. House speak about 220.000 men.

Et voilà. Il y a plusieurs. Pas du tout. De rien!

220K -235K, +7%, for a game purpose, it's the samething. It's not for an academic work.
