Do you have a method for mapping ASL units to HoS units? For example, if ASL uses a 467 what is the equivalent in HoS?

Gerry

Hello Gerry,
I'm following the "test and error" method, you know.
For example, I do not understand how it is possible that a unit of Heroes of Stalingrad (HoS) has a FP = 0. It is very strange, at least for me. Finally, I have decided to forget about the Power Factor of HoS because it does not follow the same pattern as that of ASL. The rest can work.
Specifically, your question about the unit USA 4-6-7 I think it does not exist in ASL. I guess you're asking about the German squad 4-6-7 (first line). The equivalent (in my opinion, debatable, of course) is the German squad 2-6-4-6 (I have also called it first line).
Both have the same range and ability to move. Morale in HoS is somewhat lower for most units, so I think that 1 point of difference is reasonable. The FP, of course, has nothing to do with it.
I take this opportunity to invite you to publish a scenario that you have created yourself. For example, in Barrikady you already have all the material available. If you have any questions, I can help you.
Courage!!!.
Regards,

Hi:

I may get the courage to dapple in some ASL conversions if I can get the maps. But don't hold your breath! I have never created a scenario in my life other than a little test in HoS.

Yes, I meant the German 467 in ASL. I just found a Tactical System Nationality Capabilities chart over at Lock 'n Load.
Most German Wehrmacht units have a firepower of 1 (with one exception) - examples are 1-6-4, 1-4-4 with either 5 or 6 Morale. Only ones that had a firepower of 2 were Waffen SS, Fallschirmjager, and Pioneers.

Just fyi. Take care.

Hello,
I enclose the table that I am currently using to compare the German units characteristics of the Heroes and Leaders mod and ASL squads.
I say "characteristics of H&L mod" and not Heroes of Stalingrad because I have modified some values of certain units provided by the original game and, of course, all the new units that do not exist in HoS.
Regards,

Gerry, this is the table of equivalences, between H & L mod and ASL, which I used for the Soviet Army.
There are also the paratrooper units of the United States Army (used in the first historical module on Carentan).
In the next historical module (Omaha), a large part of the units of the United States Army will be available, although not all. The units of the PTO (Marines and early North American Army) will remain pending to introduce for the Pacific scenarios, together with the units of the Japanese Army.
