I remember having a couple of queries, but the designer answered pretty fast on BGG. Mind you, I do sometimes have a habit of over thinking rules.

last word is unnecessary ;)

Just playing a couple of scenarios from OST Vol II recently got me looking at the collective counter mix for the base game and its 3 expansions, (yes, I know, too much time on my hands).

I find the the US forces can call on the following;
4 x LMG19
2 x HMG .50 cal
3 x MMG .30 cal
9 x BAR.

On the other hand, the Germans have in their armoury:
1 x HMG34
8 x LMG42

I thought this was abit odd given how many LMG's you would expect the Germans to be able to call on, so I posed the question on BGG and did get a reply from Designer, Shayne Logan, to the effect that they only included in the counter mix what was required for the scenario's in the games.

Fair enough so why, I wondered, do we get;

18 Sherman's ( of different flavours)
22 Rifle squads
44 Airborne Squads

and for the Germans;
3 Jagd Tigers (out of only 80-odd ever produced)
4 Tiger II's but only 2 Tigers I's
12 Panthers (almost a full company!)
11 Pz IV H (ditto)
26 rifle squads plus another 12 '2nd line' squads
28 SS rifle squads.

that does seem to be a rather odd mixture.

I'd be very curious to know if there's a scenario with 12 Panthers on the map at the same time
