I've played the new Operation Herkules and, although its smaller scale makes it more playable, it's quite hard.
* placement for the airborne and seaborne landings: for some reason it's not possible to deploy units in the south east of Malta. It's a bit surprising considering that the initial plan (as described on WIkipedia
) was supposed to have the landings held in southern Malta. It's currently complicated to hold a breach head, as we are trying to land on the most defended beaches. I was able to do so with the help of the paratroopers (which were "screening" the landing forces) and by ignoring the northern island.
* the AA defence of the northern island is way too strong: 2 Oerlikon portee is simply overkill.
* the italian navy in the scenario cannot match its english counterpart: 1 BB, 1 CA and 2 CL on the italian side, 1 BB 2 CA and 4 CL on the british side.
* I also don't understand why the german are having more way more ground ressources than the italians (40 vs 24).
I really hope you can have a look at this scenario.
Btw thanks a lot for your work, I'm having a blast on your campaigns
