Rules:
If the German fails to cover the DEF, that DEF is reduced for all the Allied Units by 1 for every missing German soldier. So, in a Sector with 12 DEF, if the German only has 4 Soldiers left, the Allies will benefit from a temporary DEF reduction of 8!
If the Allies reduce the DEF of a Sector, that reduction only helps them: the German still must meet the full printed DEF. If, for any reason, missing German Soldiers bring the DEF under 0, the negative value is transformed into Soldiers gained for every Allied Unit.

First Situation: Units at multiple sectors with different DEFs
Unit-A and Unit-B are located at a sector with highest DEF=10.
Unit-C is located at another sector with lower DEF=5.

Question 1:
If German has only 7 soldiers (short by 3 against DEF=10), modified DEFs for Unit-A and Unit-B become DEF=7, and Unit-C's become DEF=2. Correct?

Question 2:
If German has only 4 soldiers (short by 6 against DEF=10), modified DEFs for Unit-A and Unit-B become DEF=4, and Unit-C's become DEF=-1 and therefore Unit-C gains 1 soldier. Correct?


Second Situation: Units at multiple sectors with DEF reduced by item
Unit-A and Unit-B are located at a sector with highest DEF=10.
Unit-C is located at another sector with lower DEF=5.
German has only 4 soldiers (shory by 6 against 10). Unit-A plays an item to reduce DEF at his sector by 7 (to DEF=3).

Question 3:
What are their DEFs?
DEFs for Unit-A and Unit-B become DEF=-3 (ie 10-7-6) and therefore they gain 3 soldiers each.
DEF for Unit-C becomes DEF=-1 (ie 5-6) and therefore it gains 1 soldier.
Correct?

Third Situation: Units at multiple sectors with one-time defense
Unit-A and Unit-B are located at a sector with highest but one-time defense DEF=10/0.
Unit-C is located at another sector with lower DEF=5.

Question 4:
Unit-A chooses to encounter the DEF first. Therefore DEF for Unit-A starts with DEF=10 while Unit-B's starts with DEF=0.
If German has only 4 soldiers (short by 6 against 10). What are the modified DEFs for Unit-A/B/C respectively?
This is the most tricky one.

Re: Missing German Soldier and Multiple Units at different sectors
Your answers to Questions 1, 2, and 3 are all correct.

For situation 4, the DEF that everyone is facing is A: 10, B: 0, and C: 5. If the German only has 4 soldiers, then that is a -6 penalty against him. So the revised numbers are A: 4, B: -6, and C: -1. Meaning A only needs to spend 4 soldiers, B gains 6, and C gains 1.

I have a few related questions concerning machine gun fire.
Unit A DEF 10 sector
Unit B DEF 0 sector with 1 machine gun
German has 4 soldiers and a 5 is rolled for machine gun fire

Question 1:
Unit A DEF reduced by 6, lose 4 soldiers.
Unit B DEF reduced by 6, gain 1 soldier.

Question 2:
If unit A is in the same sector as Unit B. Both units lose 5 soldiers and the Germans lose no soldiers.

Question 3:
Everything is the same except; Unit B DEF is 10.
Unit A is reduced by 6, lose 4 soldiers.
Unit B is reduced by 6, lose 9 soldiers.
