Galatas, Western Crete, Greece: May 25th, 1941. (Scenario Size: Division Head to Head or German Human vs Allied AI. This scenario uses variable objective victory points) Oberst Richard Heidrich's 3rd Fallschirmjaeger Regiment had been held within Prison Valley for five days. The heavy casualties of the 20th May as well as the aggressive Allied defense had stymied Heidrich's attempts to push towards Canae. By the morning of May 25th, the Sturm Regiment, now half its original size as well as the newly arrived Gebirgsjaeger were ready to try and clear the stubborn Allied defenses on the hills before Galatas. After extensive softening up from the Luftwaffe, the New Zealand defenses were stretched to the limit and Galatas was lost by early evening. The towns capture was to be short lived though, with an Allied night counterattack surprising the German defenders. Little was ultimately achieved with the decision to pull back the defenders late on the 26th.

Would be more balanced w/o fixing units. Maybe an optional rule that can ufixed units?

Allied fixed units should be adjusted for better balance

Allies have a large number of forces, but they are fixed way too long. The outcome has been decided before they are released. German forces are very strong with massive firepower.
