So that makes them +14?
What do you add for aggressive or stubborn?

Just ran it through the coculator if you make them 8 pts @ the FR goes from 1 to 2 if you make them same as SL (9pts@) - 1 to 3
so you are saying make them 14pts each?

So ran this through Cocualtior
Reg paras - Sup JL - 8 pts each (after all SL can activate other units and at a longer range)
+10 % for aggressive and +5% for Stubborn
Makes the FR 5 instead of 1
For Elites it takes it from 9 to 13 (so the formulas work)

The problem with adding extra support points in CoC is you still only have 5 CoC dice and 2 SL so I am not sure how much it will change the equation on the table top but I think the maths fits in with the existing 'logic' of the coculator

We're talking in their tournament only equalization incarnation as Regulars. My take (using the CoCulator) had them at 96 points. So if we add your suggestions of Superior Junior Leaders (changing the 3 JL's from 6 - as per my original CoCulation - to 8 each) takes the total to 102. Then increase that by your suggested 15% for Aggressive + Stubborn takes the total to 117, or Platoon Rating of 5, which seems pretty fair to me (remembering that Regular PanzerGrenadiers lack Aggressive and Stubborn, and are rated as +3).

It works for me.
