I can't tell you that much, Chad (has to be SOME surprises)... However, I will say that we've done our utmost to research OOBs and such. They're as good as we were able to make them, and that's very, very good (in my humble opinion).
I can speak in general terms about The Thousand-Mile War, which is the name of the Aleutian scenario and my own contribution to the scenario list. I decided to cut it down to the summer of 1943, around the time of the US counter-invasion, because most of the time from the Jap landings forward to the fall of Attu was pretty dull game material.
There is, by necessity, a certain what-if element in it, namely that Japan decides to fight to keep the Aleutians, instead of evacuating them. The US/Canadian OOB is as close to perfect as I was able to research, but the Japanese OOB (especially the land units) is slightly more speculative. I based the LCU list on what I could find was based there in real life and added what I thought would be a realistic boost to their strength (given the concurrent Solomons/New Guinea campaign).
The Jap naval and air OOB's are better, because the sources are more readily available.
