What-if scenario

By the time the Scots Guards finally overcame Argentinean resistance in Mt Tumbledown, the Gurkhas schedule was compromised. When they finally got the order to advance to Mt William, they not only became entangled in a minefield north of Mt Tumbledown but also suffered under artillery fire, reaching their jump off position already with casualties.
Having detached one company, the Gurkha battalion got ready for the assault on Mt William, by now it was dawn and the assault would unfold under daylight.

Historically, the Argentinean troops, already edgy after the loss of Mt Tumbledown, ran away from the Gurkhas believing them to be cannibals.
This scenario exploits the possibility that the Argentinians instead decided to stand and fight.

This scenario has some issues. It has fixed units that don't release and don't have any leaders. Presumably, they are to provide support to the attack by another company, but a large portion of them are out of range of even the closest enemy unit.
