Default Recon in Force

The "Ogre Scenario" for this scenario is vague. It talks about the defender getting a watchdog Ogre Mk III and an SP, but it never says whether this is in addition to both sets of baseline forces (15 squads + 8 armor) and (20 squads, 4 armor, 12 trucks, 8 hovertrucks), or in lieu of some of that.

Anyone know what is meant? (It's this way in both the original and the Designer's Edition.)

Defender gets the stating force, reinforcements, the SP, and the MK III. Attacker gets 10 additional Armor Units.

yeah, it's all additive. The additional attacking 10AU against an additional Mark III; it would be too lopsided to give the attacker more, but take away from the defender as a trade. An ogre defending is a lot different than an ogre attacking; it still needs the support units to address the volume of units attacking.

And yes, adding some better phrasing would make it clearer.
