showcases the famous "Pegasus Bridge" operation conducted by British glider troops, taking a fortified bridge across one of Normandy's many canals. The scenario appears in C3i Magazine #21. When Combat Commander: Battle Pack #3 – Normandy
made its appearance, the battle was redone with Scenario 46
using a historically accurate map though the same forces (and custom Normandy leaders).
A key difference between the scenarios is that in the 107 version, LOS is limited to the number of spaces equal to wherever the Time Marker is. Thus it is possible you cannot see any enemy units if they are not close enough. Scenario 46 uses the Night Rules from the Normandy battlepack which apply a hindrance equal to the range to the target. This played a key difference, I thought, in the results of the two scenarios.
In the 107 version, I was able to push ahead quickly, get in the trenches and bring some heavy firepower to bear on the bridge. In the 46 version, I couldn't even get close before my leaders were cut down.
In the 107 version, I managed to blast the Germans into surrender before their surrender level increased at Time Track 3. In the 46 version, that's what happened to me, a surrender forced before we could make it to Time 5 and bump my surrender up, as well as get my needed reinforcements.
It was a sight to behold in the very opposite way in which these two played out.
Scenario 107: British win by German surrender.
Senario 46: Germans win by British surrender.
