Solid opener

This module is a must have for any wargamers that want to step in into the world of ASL, its not complicated, the scenarios are well balanced while each new scenario steps up in complexity from the previous, for example in S1, we do not get any support weapons nor SSR, in S2 homever we are introduced to SW and we get a simple SSR. The scenarios overall are really enjoyable and i have replayed them... Read full review...
