Ok, I poked around some.

The missing strike elements did not have AUX status, so no wonder they failed to show up.

Text errors were caused by me adding a skirmish scenario at the start and not updating the text files properly. At first I wanted to warp in a 1950s rifle company because one of my sources said the Danes had one company (the 6th) of the particulary unit portrayed in the campaign, equipped with WW2 era weapons. I thought it added variation, but did not like how it turned out. An error occured with the company structure of the Danish core that I couldn't get rid of, even after re-buying the entire Danish force. Decided to go KISS and bought standard 1980s companies and making the trouble scenario number 01 instead of 00 in the campagin...

For the final battle there is about a battalion's worth of infantry meant to go forward from the get go, while much of the other Polish forces were meant to stay put for quite some time.

I wanted them to hit the upper Victory Hex and continue south. I assumed in most cases they would be obliterated by the player in a fight for that upper VH. They did not have targets to go for the 155mm battery.

When I played it the bulk of the Polish naval infantry managed to reach the VH where they were beaten back. At the end I noticed some of the units, inlcuding all the PT-76 tanks had skirted the fight around the VH and made it across the lake, but not far enough to make it to the 155s...

Wulfir, are you going to upload the campaign with the fixes you made?

Yep, you bet. Will take me a few days more though...

I am pleased to report we're having a really good time putting a beat down on the enemy with three decisive victories.

Regarding the FREDENSBORG battle, I was only allotted 1 build point, although the briefing says 1000 would be available to bolster the force. Am I missing something?

Upon examing the map, the intel regarding LOENHOLT seems sketchy as there are no river crossings east of the village that I could exploit to run havoc in the rear of FREDENSBORG.

I spotted at least, 2 TOPAS-2AP and 3 PT-76Bs at Naebbet with two 2 PT-76s landing in Noedebo at Hex (43,18). I loaded my engineers in two trucks heading north to Noedebo.

The engineers defeated a PT-76 and her section of infantry at Hex (40,69) preventing the enemy from engaging at Hex (70,65) or at Groenholt station (66,92).

I detached two Centurions from U0 company at Hex (70,65) to support the engineers in their new task to protect the 155s.

Several fights ensued resulting in destruction of the enemy at Noedebo.

They crossed the lake.

Humlebaek Counterattack, Kvistgaard

Although the Danish force is augmented with a platoon of Jaegers, an additional company of heavy infantry, and a flight of F-104Gs, the promised USMC MEU-Ground Element is non-existent. Given the language in the scen text, I expected the Marine battalion to arrive as a reinforcement.

The battle at Fredensborg was fierce costing heavy casualties to one infantry company in particular due to a devastating rocket barrage. As is common in Urban Operations Danish losses extended to her scouts and tanks. As a result, I suggest adding about 1200 support points to replenish her core.

I fired up the fix patch to discover that the KVISTGAARD battle scen text states the following: (1)You still have access to the 155mm guns, (2) A platoon worth of Jaegers, (3) one fresh HV Company has been pulled out of the line and redirected to beef up your force, and (4) Some tactical air is also en route. These units appear in the battle.

Now, although the scen text has the following language, "It is all we can do for now," the next paragraph reads that a battalion size force is being transported in your direction right now." I understood this to mean that the marines would appear in the battle as a reinforcement, similar to the F-104G's. If the marines are not to appear, this is a big tease. :)
