Ruweisat Ridge, near El Alamein, July 21st 1942: The 8th Army had been whittling away at the remaining Axis forces for some weeks. Any chance to bleed some strength from the Afrika Korps was taken. So it was, on the night of July 21st that the 161st Indian Bde, and the 6th New Zealand Bde, attacked to the west along the ridge towards El Mreir. The attack went well and by early morning the New Zealanders were firmly in possession of the El Mreir depression, well inside the Axis lines. However, to hold against the expected counter attack, both 15th and 21st Panzer were in the area, armor was needed. The job fell to the newly arrived and inexperienced 23rd Armored Bde, who charged onto the waiting Axis anti tank screen, losing valuable tanks in the process. [Size, medium] *Designer Note: This scenario has some non-standard (unusual) reinforcements in order to simulate the arrival of both 23rd Arm'd Bde and the anti-tank screen.

Odd design choices in this one. The British dominate for the first 2/3 of the scenario, then German reinforcements appear in the middle of the map (in the middle of the fighting in our case).

The Italians begin crumbling almost immediately and several German units are beamed behind enemy lines at the start of the second day. This scenario can only work if the Italians are stouter. Might be well worth retrying without the alt values.
