Difference in Army Size When Playing Multiplayer

I only play FOG 2 multiplayer PBEM. However I "scout" scenarios in single player mode so I can see how many men are in each army. My thinking is that if the numbers are about the same, the scenario should be balanced. I've noticed that the numbers are signficantly different in single player vs. multiplayer. In single player the AI side always has a much larger army. I assume that this is to balance the scenario for those people who play against the AI.

The higher the difficulty level you choose when playing against the AI the fewer points you get to use to build your army. If you want to scout the numbers choose the lowest level against the AI and you will get the same points you would get in a multiplayer game of the same size.

When you're setting up a single player match, you can click "advanced options" to see (and edit) the exact point allocations to each side. SP does give the AI extra points compared to the player, or what a MP opponent would have.
