Hi Danny
Great game. Just wondering if you have any plans to include the British Airborne reserve in the expansion planned for the future (covering the Breakout etc). As I'm sure you know, Monty planned to insert the 52nd Lowland Air-landing division as part of Operation Perch to encircle Caen in mid June, but this was vetoed by the RAF. The 1st Airborne was also available, if the deadlock around Caen needed to be broken (possibly early July 44). The use of the latter is very much hypothetical but as Monty was talking about 'knocking about towards Falaise' prior to the start of Operation Goodwood, it is conceivable that this unit could have been used if the need arose.

Neither of these units are available in 'The Longest Day', which was one of the counter omissions from that fine game. I wonder if you would consider providing these as options if/when the expansion is published?

The die is cast.
You say OCD like it's a bad thing.
The next C3i issue is going to provide a lot of optional rules and some counters. That might also be a place where something like this would make its appearance.
