If I recall, you could download the graphic from the Coastal Fortress website and make your own? For use with the Mighty Maus scenario.

I can't recall an official or commercially published counter though, could be wrong, I often am these days... must be an age thing.

It was and still is on the asl detrius page done by Craig Coooper. Then there was the one in the Annual and years later Ray Tapio did blue and black ones in the nationality packs and the Berlin modules.

Indeed, just checked my counters and have the CH Maus counters as well.

A breached counter on a non building wall/hedge.
Only possible with an AVRE - cf. British Vehicle note 37.
Otherwise walls and hedges are unbreakable.

how true... a Bocage hexside comes apart (breaches) with a simple Cullin Hedgerow device- a normal hedge takes an AVRE to breach. Perfect example of how bigger, is not always better...... at least in ASL :)

How about these for counters which hardly ever get used. There is only one scenario that might call for these and that is "Mighty Maus".

It also seems that only of the two Maus was actually used in combat.

In the same order of idea the eight French FCM 2C tanks, five turreted landships - which were depicted in Crescendo of Doom - never saw combat, as two broke down and the six others were destroyed by an airstrike before they were up front.

There are two Maus in the scenario Mighty Maus, but one is immobilised. I don't think any saw combat in the real war.
the question remains debatable. Soviet records indicate engaging an immobile one and scoring killing hits on it. Whether or not that is true is not well defined.

How about the turn markers that came with PiF? BFP covered almost all combinations of opponents. though no Finns vs Chinese.

It's not that they can't be useful and are nicely done, but I confess I use the first turn counter I find in my system counter box. I could happily go the rest of my life with a counter with a black hat on one side and a white hat on the other.

I like to use a turn counter with the proper nationalities on both sides.
I would like VASL have such too.
