Western Crete, Greece: May 20th, 1941. (Scenario Size: Division Head to Head or Human vs AI for either side. This scenario uses variable objective victory points) Generalleutnant Karl Student's Operation Merkur was launched only one month before the great German Barbarossa offensive in Russia. This meant forces were constantly diverted to Poland rather than southern Greece. The need for JU-52 transport aircraft was unprecedented with many required to carry ammunition and supplies in Eastern Europe. Student only received enough aircraft to deliver two regiments via airborne assault at a time. This forced him to split his forces into two waves - a morning assault in Western Crete and an afternoon para-drop on Retimo and Heraklion. Coordinating such huge forces was always going to be a challenge and many German Fallschirmjaeger were to pay with their lives due to the insufficient resources committed.

I loved the scenario from the Axis side. The player has challenges but the scenario is still pretty balanced. It seems like an Allied player is locked down a bit too tightly with fixed units - allowing a few more releases later in the game may help with that.

A lot depends on how your drops go.
