THE BOTTOM LINE: Which comes first? Rubble Generation or Unit Setup?
The Argument for Rubble Generation:
Section 3.6 says "Each step (and sub-step) must be carried out in the numbered/lettered order given". Rubble Generation is before Unit Setup.
The Argument for Unit Setup:
Section 3.6211 says "All units/Equipment/Fortifications . . . in a hex thusly Rubbled are eliminated." But there are no units on the map yet. (EXC: an Immobilized Vehicle or a Gun in a Fortified Location).
What's the point of the 'units are eliminated' phrase if you do setup after the rubble is generated?
Because some units are left on the map between scenarios. E.g., Isolated units that do attempt/succeed Escape.
