Understood, and much appreciation is to be awarded for the people that do all that hard work, but this should be addressed in official errata at some point. Because it is very confusing as currently written.
SSR states Romanian AEs have a broken side Morale Level one greater than printed. However, since this is a Romanian vs. Hungarian scenario, A25.8 states "Due to the historical dislike Hungarians and Romanians had for each other, in all scenarios where Hungarians are fighting Romanians, the broken Morale Level of their MMC is one higher than printed and No Quarter (A20.3) is in effect for both sides."
So, is the morale level one higher or two higher for the Romanian AEs?
A25.8 applies normally. This scenario was designed a long time ago--early 90s. Either missed by the proofers/testers and it just could have been my error way back when. If my memory holds up, I believe this was added as a reminder that the broken ML is increased. For me, this is one reason I loved Broken Ground's counters--the morale increase is on different sets of Romanians/Hungarians when fighting each other. The same is with his Allied Minors when fighting the Italians.
A25.8 changed substantially from 1st edition. There was no separate rules for any particular Axis Minor nationality. In particular there was no rule that said the broken ML changed for Romanians and Hungarians when fighting each other.
THIS is the answer, I believe. I designed many of the AoO a few years before I left ASL for eleven years(!). I did not even see the finished product until 2006. And even then, did not open the box for another four years. I believe the morale increase for Allied MInors vs Italians was in the rules but I did not think the same was true for the Romanians vs Hungarians. So yes, now this SSR is superfluous.
It does not apply to all Allied Minors - only Greek or Yugoslavian.
The broken Morale Level of all minor country squads is one less than that unit’s unbroken Morale Level [EXC: Greek or Yugoslavian forces opposing an all-Italian OB have the broken Morale Level of their MMC increased by one].
