According to the scenario description, "The paratrooper's losses were terrible". I'm curious to understand what this means in game terms - given that the US starts the scenario with 46 steps (from 23 squad and WT units), how many step losses would you expect in an 'average' game between competent players?
25% (12 steps)?
50% (23 steps)?
75% (35 steps)?
90% (41 steps)?
Also, how does this compare to the history? Should we expect the game average to be equivalent to what historically happened? And how should this translate into casualties (KIA/WIA/MIA) - would 50% step losses equate to 50% of personnel being casualties, or something less?
I don't know what losses should be expected in that scenario but wargame counter losses never relate to literal losses. The loss of a squad counter means that 0-10 squad members are KIA/WIA/MIA, and the rest are ineffective for the rest of that scenario. Higher-scale war games are similar, removing a division counter doesn't equal 10,000-16,000 casualties.
