It doesn't effect my play in any way but I'm trying to work out what those numbers after many of the forces listed on the scenario cards mean.

Example might be:

German (138)
British (0)

or:

German (174)
Russian (76).

Sometimes no numbers are included.

I've searched and searched the rule book but can't find any clue. I suspect Chapter H might give a pointer somewhere but haven't found it yet.

Nick,
Check out Battlefield Integrity A16. It is optional and rarely used.

There's a relation between these numbers and the also mysterious little numbers on the broken side of the MMC... cool

Intro to said rules Section (A16.):

[In recognition that even simple record keeping is offensive to many, this rule is considered optional. Battlefield Integrity rules are never used in any scenario where either side begins play with less than ten squad-equivalents. However, occasionally, Battlefield Integrity will apply to only one side—as indicated by the presence or absence of the bracketed total number of MMC BPV in the starting OB for each side on the Turn Record Chart.]

Thank you everyone. Doubt I will ever use it but will read up on it when I get home - I'm eager to KNOW ASL, its history, variants and contraverses. After eight years playing wargames I realise that ASL is what most fascinates me.

You can always try out my house rule (which I've never used) based on the lose-by-Squad-Break rule from Up Front:

Any side that loses an ELR step due to Battlefield Integrity immediately loses the scenario, regardless of actual VC.

Interesting idea, but sometimes scenario breaking. Some scenarios are designed for one side to be completely beat up even when they win. I think a lot of Italian scenarios are that way.

And the Japanese. I don't know if BI works different for them.

It does a little bit.

G1.622:
"...The Japanese side may always add a -2 DRM to its Integrity Check DR. Otherwise, Battlefield Integrity applies unchanged when in effect."
