Error TO&E German Artillery?

The standard was still 4 gun batteries, but the front line units never had enough tubes and very often used 3 gun batteries because of it, by mid 1944. When you don't have enough ammo to need all 4 to fire it off anyway, that can seem a reasonable expedient. If you are rationing ammo to 25 rounds per day per gun, why not equip a third more units with artillery tubes and make the ration 33 per day per gun? It it not like you won't have time to fire each gun 33 times. It wasn't always that bad, but it illustrates the point.

Why not represent German tank or infantry companies as a single platoon, too?

I think the scenario designer has the necessary tools to model ammo supply and headcount restrictions and if the TO&E says 4 guns per battery, then it should be 4 guns per battery.

How could asking a question when something looks not correct be embarassing?

When a slightly more careful look would have shown the reason.

There are no stupid questions - only stupid answers...

What? Like that one?

Whoever started preaching that starry-eyed poppycock needs shooting, as do all the idiots who promulgate the nonsense. Of course there are stupid questions. There's no harm in a stupid question, perhaps, especially if the asker accepts they could and should have known better. Doesn't mean the question wasn't stupid.

Seriously ? There's no need to get on Hellas' case.

Many of us have asked stupid questions ( thinking particularly of the "oh dang, I had the trees turned off..." I've been there :D ). It can be embarrassing when you realise your mistake, but to his credit, he 'fessed up - often the thread just quietly disappears.
