Default Scenario: French Marine Paras in Algeria 7/1959

French Marine Paras of 4e Cne,6er RPIMa hold a blocking position against FLN insurgents in Algeria's Hodna Mountains during Operation Etincelles, July 1959.

Slotted for 529.

Use careful ammo discipline.
Bonne chasse, mon Capitaines!

Nice scenario, RazGator!
Gotta wonder what the French were thinking, though, sending their troops to fight in Algeria with smgs!
The Mosin-Nagants of the FLN sure shine at those longer ranges.

One strange thing I noticed though.
My A0 starts off as a chopper passenger, but for some reason I can't seem to unload him, seems he has cold (rather than black) feet!

Any ideas on this?

I'm afraid that is an error on my part. Since there is no units in the OOB specifically noted as Marine Paras, I tried several different types of companies before settling on just regular Marines (mostly because of the morale modifier). I also tried several different types of helicopters. I suspect that during the course of all these changes, I inadvertently deleted the HQ or the helicopter that it was loaded onto. Frankly, I'm not sure how to remedy the error without re-doing the entire scenario from scratch. I would also note that, it seems unlikely that a Lt. Colonel would actually be on the ground with a company sized blocking action. Any suggestions you might have regarding possible remedies would be helpful.

He he, yeah, I just assumed he was 'leading from the sky'.

As for the smg heavy units, I'm not familiar enough with the french oob to make any useful recommendations, but I suspect that any para units in Algeria would have a decent percentage of MAS CR39s.
Just a thought.

Regardless, it's a different and enjoyable scenario.
Thanks.
