US Army Mech formations would have done much better offensively. Well enough? Hard to say. Still debated among some over here as well.

Got the time to do scenario #2, and I "suspect" the unit changes I made using the repair/replace/expand points after scenario #1 had a lot to do with my results.

33 infantry losses, 3 Centurions damaged vs total Soviet destruction.

My upgrades consisted of trading in the pair of 106mm RRs for a pair of HAWKs (they're both "artillery"), swapping all the infantry armed with 60mm mortars for ones armed with Carl Gustafs, swapping the 3rd truck with the 81mm mortars for an ammo M-548 (better speed then an ammo truck), changing 4 of the 105mm howitzers for 120mm mortar sections and their md trucks for hv ones (that can carry 2x 120mm sections each) and one md truck for an ammo truck. And acquired a section of 155mm off-map artillery.

Needless to say the Soviet aircraft that appeared never got off a shot and I was able to advance behind a rolling mortar barrage (gotta love ammo trucks) whenever I spotted Soviet units. The Soviet mortars were less then thrilled to be on the receiving end of 155s.

Post scenario #2 points were a LOT less available so a 5th 105mm got traded for another 120mm section.

Well played!

The Flying Red Pest with it's stand off attack ability can put some hurt on those Centurions, it it gets the chance, that is.

Many years ago a wise old Sgt told me: "If you're ever in a fair fight you're doing something wrong."

I've passed it along, and I suspect it originated with some Roman Centurion, if not earlier.

Indeed!

When/if you finish the next one I'd be interested in knowing how the AI behaves.

#3?

If you're referring to the Polish reinforcements, in particular certain vehicles. I suspect they did exactly what you wanted them to.

On #4 now. Sure is nice to have some better tanks!
