Any one happen to know if the counters for infantry & vehicles from Critical Hit Games are the same size, or bigger than Advanced squad leader?

They match the ASL counters.

Do you mean the ASL-compatible products from Critical Hit, or the Advanced Tobruk System games? (They usually do each product in both versions.)

This is a very good reference and review site for Advanced Squad Leader and closely related products.

The Critical Hits products have a bit of a spotty reputation. The moving pieces, counter or chits, are the same size as main stream ASL. But the layout is somewhat different. The various exponents and underlines and such do not mean the same things in some of their products. They provide a page to explain. The maps, however, are all over the place. Even the same product may come with different sized hex grids.

I strongly you read a review of the exact product you are looking to buy.
