An enjoyable scenario needs a lot of patience as the allies to sit and wait for the axis attack.The game I think can be won or lost as the allies in the setup phase.

A very good overall design with good terrain and a neat twist with fog that lifted very gradually during the battle. The scenario is currently very tilted in favour of the Axis as they have 4 x Panthers and several Mk IVs vs only a troop of Shermans with one Firefly and a couple 6 lbers. The battle would be much better balanced if 3 of the Panthers were replaced with Mk IVs. Otherwise a nice, little scenario where fire and movement decided the result rather than overwhelming artillery.

Very nice, small map with good terrain and really neat conditions as fog limits the LOS but gradually lifts. However, a very lopsided battle due to overwhelming German armour superiority - 8 tanks including 4 Panthers against a troop of Shermans. Replace 3 or 4 of the Panthers with MkIVs and this would be a well balanced and very enjoyable battle.

Beautiful map and lots of great detail. Tough playing as the Allies though.

Played this scenario as the Germans and I very early recognised the massive imbalance of the forces. The Germans have three Panthers plus six other tanks and allthough the weather is foggy, the British with only one Firefly, three Shermans and two AT guns don't have a chance. On the British side this scenario is no fun to play because it's too difficult and on the German side the "sneak slowly forward through the fog" advance becomes boring very soon.

The allies could have more antitank units

With some minor modifications to the OOB this could be a very entertaining scenario. The German armor needs to be changed to mostly Pz IV, otherwise it's Panthers against ordinary Shermans and a lone Firefly. Brits could also use a mortar battery in support.

Possibly easier for Allied, but still enjoyable with wide variety of options for attacker and a map that sets you problems as well as opportunities.
