I played this scenario on the Russian side and it was no fun to play.

1.) At the biginning your setup zone is totally limited to some fixed positions in trenches and strangely shaped earthen pits for tanks, (which have proven to be very impractical) and can hardly be changed.

2.) The Americans are attacking with helicopters but on the Russian side you have only FIVE anti-air SAM rockets, which is absolutely not enough. The Russians are exposed to the helicopters like sitting ducks with no ability to fend off the air raid.

3.) The forces are extremely unbalanced. The American side is clearly in the advantage because it has eight (!) Abrams M1 super tanks, which ward off everything in advance and always track down the enemy immediately and everywhere. The Russians, on the other hand, only have five T-90s and a pile of scrap metal.

This scenario is fun to play on the U.S. side vs. the AI in single player but in multiplayer mode I strongly dissuade, because it is designed much too rigid.

Hi Shorker, sorry you didn't enjoy the map - thank you for taking the time to play it, however.
