I've been distracted the last couple of days working on recreating the old Wargamer Scenario Depot (where I could) -- and I've realized something.

I'm trying to find a nice mix; because if the Egyptians launch without artillery support to suppress or smoke out the 82nd, they run into TOW/Dragon launches and start being flaming wrecks.

Re: Blitzkrieg Banzai? (SP1 Conversion)

I know this is the SPWW2 forum, but I figured I'd drop this here since it's a converted scenario.
