I thought the table looked good. I took particular note of your comment re the effect of taking hits off v leaving them on and was quite taken by the British luck in getting 5 activations like that, a complete contrast to failing command rolls and something to have regard for when considering enemy potential.

Sometime Lady Luck allows things like this to happen. I've had the same with poor CV Russians, whilst seeing great CV SS do next to nothing.

So the Germans did use rhubarb, multiple chemical weapon strikes from mortar tubes.
