When putting together the Russo-Swedish War of 1808-09 I lamented that we could not use the Swedish counters and VP flags. I had thought that the first NATION tag in the OB files has to be "FRENCH." Turns out the Vladmir Repnin set me right on this.

He and I have been playing the Battle of Lappo from the Bautzen game. His comment yesterday was that the OBs were wrong. That the Swedes should be using their own counter color and so on.

Turns out he is right. You can use the SWEDISH Nation tag instead of the French. I am doing some testing on this and I am also checking with John Tiller but if all works out I will be able to update all of the RSW OBs in the Bautzen game so that they read "Swedish" instead of "French."

I also will update the Tournament scenarios in the Leipzig game where Allies are fighting against each other (Prussian vs. Austrian for instance).

This opens up the prospect for some interesting "what-if" campaigns too such as if Austria and Prussia had gone to war after the 1815 campaign. Lots of maps already in the Bautzen and Leipzig games for this to happen. Russia vs. Prussia as well or Russia vs. Austria.
