So what am I missing?

From what I am reading in the rules ... you have to use the bottom of the Med. and USSR Theater Tracks to know what to use. For example, Luftwaffe 1 on both means on a die roll (#) then it is Reserve (1) Med (2) USSR (3) and West (4-up).

And why is there a printed track?

I'm missing something....

Thanks in advance!

Re-reading my question ... even I'm confused. I guess I find it perplexing.

First, if Theater Track is Med = 1 Luftwaffe and USSR = 1 LW, am I correct in the following interpretation?

Roll a die and the squadron is placed:
Reserve dr = 1, Med dr = 2, USSR dr = 3, West = 4+

Additionally, if we have to calculate this all the time, what is the purpose of the printed track Reserve = 1, Med = 1-3, USSR = 1-3, West = 4+

Additionally, what are the square boxes numbered 1-10 and how do you use them? Are there counters to place on these?

Thanks again.

The track was added just as a reference to help determine where to put the Luftwaffe squadrons after each die roll. You don't need do anything with it.

Use the number on the bottom of each Theater track to determine the ranges. So if the Med track is on 2, and the USSR track is on 1, then the following ranges apply for the die roll:
1 - Reserve
2-3 - Med (2 possible values)
4 - USSR (1)
5+ - ETO

If it was Med 3, USSR 2, then
1 - Reserve
2-4 - Med (3)
5-6 - USSR (2)
7+ - ETO

Hope that helps.
