You're a new player. You cut your teeth on the Starter Kits, then took the plunge and bought the rulebook + BV3. Good for you. There's absolutely no better time to become an ASL player. You go to sleep at night dreaming of rout paths and rubble, minefields and mortars. But one dream eludes you. You yearn to play some full ASL scenarios as the Americans.

Then one day maybe some old Grog gives you copies of the scenarios from Yanks, or you buy them off eBay or something and you wonder to yourself just how many of these you could play with your Starter Kit countermix. Well, I'm glad you asked:

Bottomline is Yanks is requires a lot of work to play. Assuming a complete SK countermix with either SK3 or EXP, access to the maps from FKaC and Yanks (Yanks maps available individually from MMP. You DID buy FKaC, right?) and a willingness to proxy dm SW counters, heros, snipers, flame-throwers, radio, and concealment counters you can play 5 of the 8 scenarios from Yanks. Scenarios 21, 22, and 23 are unplayable without the proper 5/8" counters + Chapter H pages from Yanks for the Vechicles.
