    You could say "well it could still happen for reasons XYZ" but you'll never a find a good reason to explain why its explicitly a SBCT executing this attack and not follow on forces or Engineers with a couple of F-18s flattening the structure, all of whom might still be inclined to sit tight and wait out a few more days of desertions and mistakes on the part of the Defender before just trying to eat this sandwich in one big bite. 

    I guess there are always the odd exception in RL where a formation has to do something that makes no sense.  But, playing a scenario that seems designed to be as nasty as possible regardless of what is supposed to happen in RL is a PITA.

    I can play my own scenarios multiple times because I 'make believe' I don't know, like self-hypnosis. I put my previous experience out of my mind and work on refining my tactics as though I didn't know what's ahead of me. Sometimes I cheat, though. ;) 

    You are fortunate.  I find after playtesting scenarios more than 3 or 4 times, I burn out and just can't play it any more.  This is sad as I still have not been able to play MOS's final versions of his TOC and COUP scenarios for that reason (even though he made big improvements to the final version of COUP).  

  3. Most often replaying means there are no or certainly fewer surprises/ambushes.  So it should be easier.  I hate replaying anything precisely cos I get most enjoyment from the surprises and once you know where enemy units are, one tends to want to rush through the "boring" bits where you know what will happen (or not).  Alternative AI plans help a lot but it's unclear if there are alternative AI plans in this scenario.
