    Glad to see this is nearly the same as what I have been using for my Perry Plastics 🙂
    Just one point – the 40mm Bofors is missing from the arsenal table.

    Looking forward to the 8th Army lists and the stats for the Crusader 3

    Question on the A13 armor stat. The table gives it as a 3, while the A10 has a 4. My understanding is that the A13 had comparable armor to the A10. Was there a reason for the difference?

    Just curious.

    Couple or three queries on this one.
    The 2 pdrs on the tanks have an HE value of 4? Just wondered why? Are these the HE stats for the CS versions?

    The blurb mentions sections of 8 men yet the platoon has 10 per section. Which is correct?

    The Recce Universal Carriers have a crew of 4 in the list but noted as having 3 man teams? Incidentally this is the same in the main rules. Which is correct?

    The 3″ mortars are 2 per FOO rather than 3 per FOO but still cost 4 Support points. Why?
