This scenario is the Axis Programmed Opponent [PO] Version of the Directive 21 Scenario. This means that you can now play as the Soviets against the Axis Computer. Human vs. Human is also possible. As there are extensive changes in other areas, it was felt that a name change was best, in order to avoid confusion. Below is a condensed list of changes [the full change list is several pages long].
Axis 5-Track PO added
Equipment Database changed to a revised Derek Weichs Database.
TO&E Revisions [based on the works of Fredrik Henriksson [German units] and David Glantz [Soviet units].
Soviet Production Revisions.
Working on Naval Combat Results. Naval Attrition Divider changed from 10 to 100, then from 100 to 50.
See the attached scenario document for further details.
This has been worked on for over a year. Most of the changes won't be immediately noticeable and actually have little to no effect on game play. The Axis PO is a big part of this, but it is basically a roughed-in item. It is there, and it is functional, but it will take time and playtesting to improve. On a scale of 1-10 it currently probably rates a 3. One C2C run has resulted in an Axis loss in May 1943. Some adjustments have been made and a second C2C run has resulted in an Axis loss in November 1943. At this point it can't hurt to have humans that may be interested in checking it out.
