I think I'm in love with this system. Thanks Dean and crew!

I've read the rules 3 times so far as well as most/all of the very helpful play examples that folks have created. I'm finally ready to dive in and try a solo game of Bastogne in order to internalize what I've learned. I'll use this thread to post questions as they come up.

First question: I noticed that the Booth Armored Infantry Task Force of CCR/9 has the same AR (2), on both it's move and deployed sides. The only difference is the MP's and movement class. Is this intentional or a misprint? I haven't seen any counter errata available, yet.

That's intentional. The front side is its mounted side (in halftracks as red Movement Allowance) and its back side is its dismounted side (on foot as white MA). Units that are mounted in tactical MA vehicles (like halftracks) won't have their AR lowered on the move side compared to units who are truck-borne (12 wheeled MA front). This lowered AR when mounted on trucks shows how truck-borne infantry were more vulnerable than ones mounted in halftracks.

TF Booth consisted mostly of a company of the 52nd Armored Infantry Battalion with a handful of supporting units (which didn't qualify it for dual compared to Harper or Rose in CCR/9).
