Introduction (by thrasher)

This 'scenario' was created by Hostile Spice. It is not a complete scenario. It only features the Spring 1940 setup for Germany and the United Kingdom. Setup and rules for the United States and the USSR are not included. So it is not clear when Germany may attack Russia or the US. Or vice versa.

The Scale

This is the scale I used for AAEurope

  • 1 infantry = 3 infantry divisions
  • 1 armor = 3 armor or mechanised infantry divisions
  • 1 fighter or 1 bomber = 500 planes
  • 1 submarine = 10 submarines
  • 1 artillery designates an infantry army

I couldn't make heads or tails of the boats in AAEurope and I am also unsure about the planes and subs. The planes might be equal to 1000 planes. For both games (A&A Europe and A&A Pacific) this scale is only approximate. The games are set up vaquely resembling the orders of battle and I had to guess by totalling up the pieces and matching them up to a similar number of units.
