Germans in France? It doesn't have 1940 equipment, and it doesn't have 1944 equipment, so what's it supposed to be? In fact the most appropriate setting for the equipment on this mission is Tunisia in early 1943.
And here's my version for France 1940, with some of tgd's items added: France006 - same map, same objectives, same quantity of equipment, original terrain; it's just that the equipment itself is different, and the tactics necessary will be somewhat different.
Hey, Dany, maybe I should be the one who is saying I'm sorry. Sorry for being so nit-picking.
It's just that I was into history long before I discovered this game. I know in detail and almost without thinking what equipment belongs in what period, and often why. Thus when I see something that is wrong it's like having an itch that you can't get to; it bothers me.
Don't be upset, you're not alone. I'd say over 90% of all missions made for Blitzkrieg have inaccuracies in them.
Part of it is balance. Having 2-pdr's trying to stop PzKw III-J's and PzKw IV-G's is almost as bad as having a kid with rocks trying to knock out an Abrams.
So don't worry. It gave me a interesting project to do, and I had some fun testing out my versions of your missions.
Also more power to you. I think you and I are the only ones putting out new missions these days.
Why not do an historical map? This will help. That way, if nothing else, the power of your units will be better balanced and your mission will be more balanced. It only takes a little bit of thought and effort, and more people are going to like your missions. Best of all, I won't bug you about it.

Warlord: Lads, has anyone had issues playing Operation Trident, 1960, in GZM11? Mission crashes once you deploy the paratroopers...

Grot: If nothing works I can upload save file for you after para drop .. there is another drop just after paratroopers landed (from helicopter this time) with 2 mortars and heavy MG

Warlord: Crash came a tad after the deployment of the heavy support teams, when I sent the paras advancing towards the village on the right; I also had an air raid pummeling the target area. You have a save available from somewhere around that point in the mission?
