Obviously that initial comment needs to be deleted. Steve was just referencing that the scenario works from East to West, rather than South to North. N, E, W, S are unchanged on the map as described within the scenario, even if North is no longer at the "top" of the map, should you chose to actually rotate the map.

With the map rotated, column 08xx is now row 08xx. But again, this needs clarification. Basically, the PE force needs to set up on the western half of the map.

For the basic scenario, they're essentially CPs with some 'point-defense' capability. The Laser Tower variant adds some teeth to them.

This is why we want you play-testing it. This differential may need tweaking.
