Ordered it. But looks like it will be a while before they print it since the orders are coming in slowly.

GMT has indicated that Paratroopers is likely to be reprinted before the end of the year. So it will be reprinted regardless of the number of pre-orders at the time it goes to press. The P500 is an opportunity to lock in P500 pricing and have the game shipped directly from GMT when available.

Excellent! is it going to be just a reprint or will they be updating it or adding anything?

What sort of updates do you feel it needs?

I'm not sure since I don't own a copy, but has anything changed in the years since it was first released? In any case new scenarios are always nice.

I believe there was zero erratum for this battle pack so it should be a straight reprint.

New scenarios will find there way into C3i magazine or future battle packs. I'd not want to add new scenarios (or new anything) to a reprint as that would 'obsolete' all previous editions, and I don't want those owners to feel they need to respend their money to get what they should have gotten in the first place.

Paratroopers contains only scenario cards and maps, and in the history of CC: Europe only one erratum has ever been published concerning a scenario card. It is about C3i Scenario 103 (Consolidated FAQ, February 15, 2008).

Same for the scenarios of CC: Pacific: one erratum only, about Scenario D (Consolidated FAQ, June 15, 2009).

I was able to pick up a copy off ebay for a very reasonable price and amazingly quick shipping. I immediately gave scenario 25A and 25B a try and will have to go over them several times as they seemed odd choices for a 'paratroopers' scenario pack. On first play I found 25A exasperatingly slow to start and fiddly with 25A exceptionally fiddly. Neither seemed to have the sense of excitement or fun that I immediately found in the CCE scenarios but I will see what some opponents think of them before setting them aside for hopefully greener fields.
