There are no special rules. The purpose of this scenario is to learn the use of vehicles. Some things that people sometimes forget:

  • Units have different range and firepower depending on whether the target is a vehicle or infantry
  • Tanks add 3 dice when attacking units in buildings
  • Tanks can overrun infantry units, pinning them
  • Half-tracks and trucks are fatigued if lightly damages by op fire, but tanks are not.

This scenario is only useful for teaching the game to novice players. Obviously the novice must keep the Germans.
The 1: 1 ratio between Panzer IV and Sherman is completely skewed in favor of the Germans.

We played other scenarios where the ratio was 2: 3 and they were fun but still tipped in favor of the Germans.

VLOG attached.
