We know some of you were already house ruling this change but, the rules have changed.
In RAW TiTE: If the Final Battle Odds is less than 1:2, that attack is cancelled (No Effect)
Working ETO rules now read: (233.0 in 5)
; if it is less than 1:2, that overland attack suffers an automatic AL result (238.0) and eliminates all attacking units in the defender’s hex (i.e., Paradrop and Amphibious landing forces) with no effect to the defender;
Those early Soviet attacks especially with the use of Jerich Trumpets, seemed to bring it forward to review. Early play testing in The Middle Sea required more detail to stop those Paratroopers lauching almost Banzai attacks on Malta.
