Excellent scenario. Greatly enjoyable against AI or in H2H. I really enjoyed.

Redfor in this scenario suffers from the lack of fire power (152mm) and AT assets. However, redfor has the advantage of beginning from defensive position.

As are result, all in all, I would say the scenario is very very slightly pro US, but still in 'balanced' category.

The Russians have a great reverse slope defensive position, Hinds are lethal, and Krasnopol rounds are very accurate. There are many good spots for FOs to hide and retain LOS on large part of the map. The US has numerical superiority and a large amount of support assets so I believe the scenario is well balanced.

the us player must have an very good tacticplan to move forward for to reach his goals. there is enough artillery and heli for that.

to hide their ATM´s is very important for the russian forces. no chance against the bradleys and abrams if your are out of ATM teams. the best help against the US tanks are the helis

Russia seems to have the superiority because of AT weapons and helis, and of course its defensive position under a slope. It is possible to advance red army at first turn to the top of the slope for an advanced and unexpected defense line, and also attack the small us detachement on right farm with superior forces, yet i've only had success on this last and had to retreat from slope's top into town because of good play from opponent, in any case there i had another strong defensive position and ceasefire was agreed.
Its a good scenario nevertheless, both interesting against AI or human play, and both sides, lastly the long battle duration allows for prudent planning and a relaxed battle.

A well designed scenario, options for both sides, map size and details are good.
