OK, your scenario idea is the number of troops for the attacker is
directly
proportional to the number of rounds they can hold orbit.  What I'm
saying is
that you're going to have to adjust that greatly.  If the attacker can't
get
orbit, then you don't have a game.  If the attacker gets 1 turn of
orbit, he'll
get a force of size X.	If he gets two turns of orbit, he gets 2X.  I'd
find it
difficult, at best, to design a sceanrio that plays as well when a force
of
fixed size goes up against 1X as it does against 2X.
As an alternate, I'd suggest that you playtest the FT scenario to
see what
can be reasonably expected.  Then adjust the size of the attacker's
force +/-10%
based on how well the FT team does in their transport duties.  Anything
greater
than 20% is going to sway the odd too greatly.
