Lots of axis armor and only a few allied 45mm AT guns and 76mm infantry guns to stop them. Going to be really rough going for the allied player.

The concept of the scenario seems fine but the low amount of AT capabilities of the Soviet troops combined with the large amount of German armour means that the Soviets have little chance. The Soviets do have an advantage in the woods themselves but the majority of the objectives are a the edge of the woods or in the open which means the Germans can own them.

Our game was basically over before the clock was half way done but I kept holding on because the reinforcements implied that a large number of assault guns were coming for the Soviets. Sandy those reinforcements were much to little and far too late.

A good scenario, mix of VPs and map but definitely very lopsided in favour of the German player owing to the overwhelming advantage in armour and mobility. The Soviet 45mm ATGs seemed remarkably ineffective as the MkIVs took multiple hits and a few penetrations from them without being knocked out. I would recommend giving the Soviet player a platoon of T34/76s about 10-15 minutes in to better balance the battle for H2H.
