Does not matter because the way St Vith is treated in this game is atrocious, even the history about it is little to nothing, it is like the 7 armored division, ccb 9 armored division, the one regiment of 28th division and the one regiment of the golden lions were never there...the value of the town is incredible unrealistic with St.Vth being the most or one of the most important objectives of the German high command...incredible.
