Help us understand why this attack is not +13.

Just before the die roll for the attack gets rolled, Germany should get the question if the winterized units lead the attack. If you do (and of course you do so), the attack should end up being a +13.

I am quite sure this did not happen as we went ahead with a +3 on the dieroll manually.
And why is it not added as other bonuses?
Confusing!

Partisans get a +1 to their combat factors in forest (regardless of weather).

So it is 14:2 => +14 with -4 for the weather => +10.

The choice for using the snow units is later in the sequence of play.

If you include snow units in the attack, then it should be +13 (all the Finns are snow units, hence +3).

What is the reasoning for not including this in the form to begin with? Using an engineer for instance you have to chose while declaring combat.

The engineer is a bit tricky because if you use it's ability it effects how losses are assigned.

I do not know.

It was coded this way when I inherited the code from Chris back in 2004.

Perhaps it is this way because both sides get to choose whether to use the benefits of their Snow/Winterized units - which means they would have to take the first loss. None of that applies to defending engineer units.

Is there actually a choice to use the winterized bonus? I did not get any choice. If you want to try it our for yourself I have a save where you can try it.

My suggestion would be to have it show it with the +X-number.

According to Steve it should, or there is a bug, I understand.
