Stonne, France, 15th May 1940: After the failure of the counterattack of May 14th with some infantry the French HQ is preparing for another attack. Stonne, a small French village near Sedan, will be the "Verdun" of 1940 for those French and Germans who fought here. During this day the village will change hand several times. For the French it was the starting point of their counterattack that was supposed to plug the hole created by Guderian at Sedan. On the German side, the position has to be taken by the Grossdeutschland Regiment. They must guard the flank of the Panzer Gruppe v. Kleist which is moving west. The 10. Panzer Division will come to their support.

Designer notes
I cannot stress enough that the unit ratings are so perticular that the following and exact optional rules must be selected or you could get results that are not intended.

This is the case if you are playing a _Alt scenario as a ladder game or running a H2H test on a _Alt scenario.

These optional rules are also found in each notes files in the Alt art / scenario pack.

Here are the optional rules to be used:

*Note* If you are playing an ALT scenario in an older PzC title that does not yet have the Quality Fatigue Modifier optional rule, then just play it without the rule. For the most part, the difference in results are not all that drastic as both sides suffer and benefit equally from the rules use, or non use.

That said, the ALT scenarios were created with this rule in mind so when it becomes available you should use it.
