In Normandy, in the pdt file, 1 appears by default
Replacements are based on a percentage that can be set in the OOB for a defined organization. None of the current PzB titles have such percentages set, so it does not apply to them at this stage. However Unit Loss Recovery does apply. This is described in the PzC manual as;
"Units that have taken losses in combat have the possibility of recovering some of their losses. This represents a combination of factors such as straggler recovery, wounded recovery, and vehicle repair. Loss recovery also applies to losses taken by air units. The determination of unit loss recovery is automatically made at the beginning of each player turn for the units for that side and reported in the Command Dialog. Loss recovery is based on Parameter Data for each side. Before a unit can recover losses, it must not move, fire, assault, be fired upon (with a result other than ‘No Effect’) or be assaulted during the previous turn. In addition, the unit cannot be Digging-In, be building a bridge, be Broken, or be in a minefield. The Parameter Data value for that side will determine what percentage of its losses the unit is eligible to recover on average. The actual percentage applied is randomly determined for each unit and will range form 0 to twice the Parameter Data value.
The Quality of a unit affects its nominal recovery rate based on the following modifiers:
• Quality A units recover at 200% the nominal rate.
• Quality B units recover at 150% the nominal rate.
• Quality D units recover at 75% the nominal rate.
• Quality E units recover at 50% the nominal rate.
• Quality F units recover at 25% the nominal rate"
The PzB manual is currently being revised. Explanations of Replacements and Unit Loss Recovery will be included in the new version once it is available.
